Right. Obviously not interested in people who built just to track, looking for experiences from people who daily dive.

Right. Obviously waiting for all the people with built 450-500whp motors for daily driving only to chime in.

Yeah check out BrenTunings instagram. My advice is to get the Xona instead of just the blue if you can afford it. I would if I could redo it. Mines a little laggy. Full spool would be about 3800 rpm vs mines at 4500.

Seriously those are the highest pump gas numbers with 93 octane that I have seen. Thanks for the advice but are you happy with it overall?

Better be safe than sorry and your whp curve still must be fun to drive. Can always go balls to the wall later

Totally happy with it. Had to change my driving style a bit but worth it as it pulls hard all they way to redline.

Tune by Bren

20psi

Stock block stock turbo

GS intake
GS catted J
IAG TGV/EGR
Q300
PW Verticooler
GS EBCS

330whp/335wtq corrected

Best dyno tune Iíve ever gotten, best driving, most consistent, hardest pulling...torque hits in all gears, it was done RIGHT. I love how you have to actually press the throttle to make boost on partial throttle versus the way itís mapped stock. It hits real hard from 4K and up.

There's definitely some sorcery going on with the dyno up there at Bren and I don't buy those numbers.

I have a similar setup but with an XR Blue and did 340/332 on 93 and 425/355 on flex tune on a Mustang dyno.

Only way you are getting sort of close to those pump numbers is with an ETS kit.

Not sure what to tell you man, there are multiple dyno sheets out there from different tuners where where these turbos are making anywhere from 360 to high 380's on pump and almost 500 on E85. Maybe you turner wanted to keep it safe.

I would buy that on a Dynojet but not on a Mustang dyno. I don't buy Bren's "330 whp" numbers for Stage 2 cars when everybody else is doing 280-295 with apples to apples same mods.

I haven't read this as dick measuring. Just trying to understand some wild pump gas numbers.

I'd be curious to see how the car holds up over time with that setup.

Dyno numbers are really only good for assessing changes, baseline vs. post change. Without a baseline the overall number is useless except for ďdick measuringĒ. And for the most accurate assessment conditions should be identical. If anyone wants to read some pretty smart guys discussing the subject

Hey,

I donít see many stage 2ís running 280whp. I had a stage 1 by Botti done at ACI Dynamix and I made 269 with just an axle back and intake.

You should consider the fact that Brendan has done hundreds if not over a thousand of these cars.

I was even tuned when I did stage 2 by Junior Barrioís, and made 322whp at Prime on a mustang, later on at Bren I pulled 330whp.

Junior tunes for IAG, Killer B and Prime Motoring and is one of the most respected tuners in the industry. Iím pretty sure the tune was legit.

How is it that with 3 different well known tuners at three different places I made above average numbers according to your statement? Itís experience that counts, DI motors are tough to begin with..factor in a guy who doesnít tune that many and the results speak for themselves. Take care. -Matt

Scrolling back through, you can see my set-up, similar, but an e-tune, and in the 31Xs whp/33Xs wtq via virtual dyno.

So I think your numbers are doable given a true pro-tune. Yeah, maybe on the high end, but within reason with a strong engine. :shrugs:

All Dynos read differently, too many factors to consider.

Please continue to post dyno graphs and results.

My experience and info is derived from my tuner, who is one of the three you mention.

For my first round of mods ( FMIC,Catted J Pipe,Catback,EBCS,TGV/EGR Deletes) I did 294/307 FWIW and I would say that is about Stage 2. I was on stock intake and stock bpv at the time.
