The result was all over my expectations. We ended up with 713 hk and 868 nm(640 lb/fp) which I’m super happy with! And as you can see, it starts at 2000rpm with 740nm isn and its over 800nm from 3000-6000rpm. And the curve for hk doesn’t stop either, so we more to get with higher rpm later on.

  1. Greetings from Romania! I was wondering how heavy the car is. Because I dont want to cut my Soarer but man this thing is heavy! Second, from the dyno charts I saw that you are running a 3,7:1 diff ratio? That is from a manual or a V8, isnt it? Why did not choose the 1JZ diff auto with 4,1? All the best and good luck in Ireland!

    1. Hi Liviu. My car as it sits right now is 1300kg without me. I run a 3,7 diff because I have a 4 speed dogbox transmission. I wanted a hight top speed then the 4,1 could give me.
