Default PDX visits Texas! Updated time slip from drag strip on page 2

The Gents at PDX came to Texas for three days to run a tuning session at FIS in Dallas Texas. Close to 18 cars were PROFESSIONALY tuned to damn near perfection, regardless of the heat.

Jarrad and Tim of PDX tuned my car and all other's at that. My car is an 05 STI with a monster list of goodies. With Tim working the lap top and Jarrad making adjustments to the Avc-r boost control and working the dyno they were able to make me gin from ear to ear when they handed me the dyno sheet!

Here are some details:
2005 STI with 8400 miles:
*FP Green with 3' inlet
*Perrin mod injectors
*Perrin 3' inlet hose
*Perrin limits edition FMIC from PDX
*Perrin big maf
*High pressure fuel pump
*APS tgv delete kit
*C0bb catted dp*****
*Cobb cat back
*Cobb ap with Pro tune
*One step colder plugs
*Avc-r boost contoler

Tim was kind enough to follow up 3 hours of dyno work with a 15 min ride to monitor the car. The car was heat soaked while on the dyno so it took almost twice the setup time to tune my car, they had no problems getting it done! The dyno below is actually from the next day after the car had a chance to be driven and cool down. He also took the time to setup my boost controler the following day after a few dyno runs when he had a free moment. There was no way I would have been able to setup the learning and all that jazz in 10 min like he could.

Here it is:


The car runs GREAT. It runs like a stock car with the exception of all that power. The boost in this dyno is near 21 psi or so at max. On the road the load was very different but the car is tuned for 22 psi and on the road the car see's 22 psi all day long.

Tim provided me with 3 maps, the base "conserative tune" and 2 additional real time map's that are each a step more aggressive and will require some race gas to ensure saftey, havent used them yet but plan too soon with some race gas!

I cant express how happy I am with the car. After owning quite the aray of cars over the past years, to include an 05 elise, 00 m coupe, 04 sti, and others, I can say that no modifications and or tuning has worked out so well in both performance per dollar and/or final results. I actually got 320 miles out of the tank of gas while driving like a moron at 20 psi on the highway in 5th and 6th!

The strangest thing about this hole thing is this, the front tires spin in first and in second while WOT acceleration. Dont understand how its possible, but its repeatable over and over!



** when and if I ever change anything on my car you can bet I'll be setting up a 2 day tuning weeking with the fellas of PDX. The costs were relative to my results and directly inline with SIZE OF MY SMILE! These guys at PDX are delivering smiles all over the USA, just have to call and setup the deal!

Thanks guys,

Adam P....
From 9k miles to 30k in a month with all the driving I am doing!!

Great numbers! That's a nice torque curve. It's results like this that keep the 3" green on my shopping list.

Bailey is the master at beautiful curves. Do you think you could hold on to torque a little longer? My god it's in the next county. I'd say your car would be a lot of fun to drive pulling that hard for that long.....amazing.

Ironicly, due to the heat, the car was not liking timing on the top end. Tim kept detuning the car so it would put a good pass on the dyno. Then they decided to remove the car from the dyno, they never actually added the timing back, so in its current form, I am sure there is more in it!! However, I like conserative for right now!

If the Front wheels are spinning check your rear diff temp sensor. If it is faulty which has happend it puts max power that it can to the front thinking the rear diff is overheating. Glad your tune came out good! I know both of those guys and have met them several times. How did Jakes car turn out? I know he had some issues with the Turbo setup and flanges last time I was out in that area.

Short of the FMIC, you have exactly the same parts I have waiting to go on at 1000 miles. PDXTuning doing the install and tune, so if I can repeat those results, I'll be grinning from ear to ear too.

Damn... thats some low end torque for a green. And some upper end too.
This 3" green thing seems to be...well... pretty impossible to beat.

You've got 240 lb/ft at 3000 rpm. FInd me a big stock replacement turbo that can make top end that can still do 240 at 3000... they don't exist outside of the 3 foot green.

Congrads,
Chris

Very true, I am VERY happy with the power and tq. I could not be more happy considering the parts on the car!

Also to answer another question, I think a stock sti puts down somewhere near 250hp, but cant be certain about this.

There was another green with a regular inlet on the dyno a day or so after me who actually put down 350awhp and 360altq. He made more tq then I did, which made me kinda wonder, because I have tgv deletes and he doesent. But my hp sure shows the car is fast.

I plan to go to the strip soon, but dont plan to run extraordinary times because I am on the stock clutch and cant really afford to replace it right now. So expect some 2.0 60' times....

Thanks for all of your kind words. I will post up some pics of the car soon!

Clark,

I will have to check the sensor for the rear diff. I honestly think it may be the roads that is causing the problems and tire pressure maybe to blame also. Will check those things and if the fronts are still spinning, will look into it more. The tq steer is very weird to deal with considering its an allwheel drive car... Any idea's on how to tell if the sensor is bad? I dont have the light on in the car which I remember from my 04 sti, it came on when at a road track weekend.

As far as Jakes car goes, I am unsure how things went. I know he ran into some blow through maf problems early on, however I left before some replacement parts were able to be installed. Might consider sending him a PM, he seems to be off the board since this past weekend.

and yea, both guys from PDX were great to work with. I almost expected some complaining considering the extreme heat in texas and all of the people who signed up, one day they worked for 14 or so hours in a building that was over 100 degrees.... They were troopers and were very professional. Can imagine working with any other tuners at this point.

On the mustang dyno I think it's closer to 230ish.

It ain't stock, that's for sure!
