got print out to prove it. some cars do develop more power than standard on their own, where as others have less. when dan had the pipercross in his SI with a magnex back box and rest standard he had just over 130. they are not un-realistic figures for these cars to have. Lee's truck had 348bhp - saying thats un-realistic for a supercharged 5.4 V8?

 

my dads V6 galant developed 170.3 few years ago and his is completely standard, and should have 163 manufacturer quoted.

 

some cars loose power too. my old citroen AX with 72K on the clock and all new parts under bonnet should have had 60bhp standard and ran 41. just saying mine is one of the lucky ones with more.

All rolling road figures should be taken with a pinch of salt. Dyno Dynamics seem a bit better than others, but they should be taken as a rough guide only.

 

I'm sorry to tell you, that there is no way in holy hell a standard 115PS 1.8 with an air filter would be anything like that much. My 2.0 with a stainless on it read 129.6 on a DD rolling road and that was pretty much a fresh built engine, though it was running enough fuel for about 300bhp, let alone 130 :roll:

 

These things aren't really accurate, more just a guide to show the car is running well and for a bit of banter :)

not digging mate but i wouldnt quote those figures as true, if you went to another rr tomorow be dramtical diffrent

 

Rachel & I were talking about this earlier.... It is true, they are not 100% Accurate.. but it's really for the sociable side that most of us go!

 

Mine would have been more accurate than anyone else's simply because mine was the only vehicle they hooked there computer up to the ECU, hence why my printout shows more stats than others.

not saying they are 100% accurate, but why spoil the fun and say no way could mine have as much as it does? it did more than ones with more mods and i'm chuffed to have most powerful escort on the day. whole idea was to have fun and se ways to improve my car. from results it doesnt need much. just going to fit cat back and see what happens. guessing yours was running a smidge rich then. probably your reason for low power reading

Come on now lads, stop bickering and filling the report thread with crap. :thumb:

 

Personally I don't care about my result, it was good to do the rolling road & get what I did, but I spent more time talking to everyone, I went for the social, the meet & the talk.

Yea..... just as I got home the fuel light came on. :roll: lmao.

My wages pay Solely for the fuel alone...... whatever I have left in my bank goes on whatever.......

 

Don't forget the Truck had 3 runs on the rolling road before getting hooked up to the computer and ran again for a more accurate reading. so that would have used a bit lol. :D
