Got protuned yesterday and I am relatively happy with the results, although I was hoping for a higher torque reading. The hp numbers are about where I wanted them. Dave Brown from PAS did the tuning on a Mustang dyno. I did specify a safe, conservative tune but from a lot of the dyno results I've seen with a VF34 and supporting mods at 17.5 psi, the torque numbers seem much higher. Anyway, car runs well and I am happy for now. There were a couple of other cars there with built motors putting down close to 450

Nice numbers! I had my TD04 dynoed on a Mustang that was probably similar. Graph is the same at least. I made 220whp and 200 ft lbs. I have basically the same mods now that you have, the VF34 and pinks and I hope to see about those numbers on the same dyno. That would be a solid 40whp and about 30ft lbs. What octane is this on? Sadly I only have 91 to work with.

Add 20-25% for drivetrain loss.

Those numbers seem about right. Mustangs read low. Seems basically spot on, especially for only 17psi. My buddy had the same mods and got tuned at akuma which has a mustang and he ran 20-21psi and made like 280/260

I used 20 percent driveline loss which would put me at around 319 crank. Dave, the tuner, seems to be well versed with these cars and thought we could have gone to around 19 psi but I wanted to keep it on the conservative side.

I am running 93 octane and the car pulls really well but I am going to go back and see if I can get Dave to recommend what I need to get the torque numbers up a bit. I'd like around 250. The power never seems to fall off as you get into the upper rev range.

Are you getting a new protune with the vf34? I am curious to hear your thoughts on how the VF compares to the protuned stocker
