Here is a 2013 FR-S (BRZ in disguise). The graphs make the car look pretty pissed off. Not sure what was going on, he was here simply for a baseline pull. Pulls were consistent in 2wd mode with load, 4wd mode inertia only, and 4wd mode with load. High run of the day was 140whp. This graph is the final pull we did prior to pulling it off the dyno. Hopefully a few bolt ons in the future and re-tune with the ECUTek software will make for much smoother power!

If the torque dip at 4k is what you're referring to as 'odd', that is standard on the FR-S/BRZ.

Some info on modding the FR-S:

Nice comparison graph, thanks for posting up. I was referring more so to the odd power delivery up top. It looks like a mountain range. No logging was performed but its probably a safe bet that it was picking some knock up top based off how the graph looks.

Thanks,
Alex Goodwin

Yeah I was going to say, looks a little knocky, or the smoothing on the plot was 0. The FRZ we dyno'ed locally on a mustang was not nearly that jumpy. Bad gas maybe?

I would like to think so. The car had real low milage so I doubt there could have been anything else wrong like a vacuum leak or something. AFR was actually rich too which was odd.... we observed around a 11:1 AFR wideopen throttle, which on a N/A direct injection car is pretty bad haha.

Thanks,

That's weird. All the ones I've dyno's showed peak power around 7k rpm and pulled decently to 7500

137whp? That seems awfully low. That's a ton of parasitic loss!

Something is not right with that car. It should make about 175whp on this dyno.

Ed,

Think it had like 2200mi on the clock if that. So hopefully if it was something going on in the back round it will present itself before any future mods are done and the dealer can take care of it!

Oh do you guys use a FX5000 as well? We have made some changes so im not so sure if you can put a 1:1 relationship with our dyno versus yours....

Nope, I have the older DC Tuner. But from my experience most Dynocom's read very similarly to each other regardless of model. What changed have you guys made?

Ed,

Graph smoothing mainly which seemed to make the power read differently since it wasn't interpolating it so drastically I guess. He did some other changes to bring the numbers down as well but I cant remember what they were. Paul @ dynocom helped us figure it out.

Thanks,
Alex Goodwin

Graph smoothing will just get rid of the small peaks which will bring numbers down a bit. The graph you posted here looks to be using smoothing #1.

Otherwise, as long as you have all the inertia values right it should be reading like any other dynocom. Unless of course you're using the DJ Multiplier or the PAU CF.

Thanks

Ed,

We changed some configuration in the registry as well, again with Pauls assistance. I didn't participate in this so I can't tell you exactly what was changed.
