    Saw Airboy again (dyno vid)

    As much fun as "stage 2" was with an Airboy tune, a VF43 came up locally for the right price. Drove on wastegate boost for a week, and saw Airboy and his Dyno Dynamics last week.

    Put down more power than most VF43 swaps, and stage 2 STI's on his dyno because I went with a 94 octane tune, and we put Airboy's RE-01R's on my car.

    Dyno Dynamics with ATMC1 CF for repeatable results throughout the year
    Elevation: 3500'
    Temp: 82F
    Density Altitude that day: ~5400'

    Stock on the same dyno: 175-180 whp, 225 wtq
    Stock STI on the same dyno: 225-230 whp, 230 wtq
    Me: 289 whp, 315 wtq

    Power run starts at 22 seconds:

    Derp, forgot the dyno sheet. The torque plateau is sweet.

    The TD04 run was my last dyno, "stage 2" 94 octane. Spool misleading since it was much cooler that day.

    Feels great, the extra mid range punch is nice. Haven't had a chance to really take advantage of it yet however.

    Thats about the same numbers that mine was at when I had the vf43 on my car! Kinda weird...mine was on a mustang dyno though. I know you can't really compare it just saying.

    I like that torque curve

    He give you any indication of the boost/timing you're running?

    Boost is only 18 psi, so I'd assume it's mostly timing, I'll have to do some logging to see what the timing is. I have a 91 octane tune as well, but will likely never use it :-)

    Now to take this b*tch down to sea level!
