Good news is that there was a lot of room to work with
The blue vacuum line will be black on the final run. All bare metal will be painted black as well. We figured out how we want to to the shield, but I picked up the wrong size. Next one will be taller to come closer to the hood
Good job, Tailwalker! It was interesting to see that in the second run torque was up over 8 ft/lbs but not horsepower. However in the 3rd pull horsepower was up substantially but not torque. You said you had just the K&N in on the second run. Was that a conical filter or a replacement for the factory pleated filter? Anyway, these are good power gains at the rear wheels.
Thanks for all your effort.
That is correct. Keep in mind that we only ran three pulls just to see if there was any increase at all. Also there was concern as to how the car would react given all the electronics with the drivetrain, so we cut the run short of redline.
I may do another session once the ECU adapts to the increased air flow. I did notice gas mileage changes much more quickly. I won't know until a few more tanks, but I'm hoping the results will be favorable.
Indeed!! the overall smooth torque from 4000-6000 RPM is simply sublime (well done Hyundai!)...
The peak HP is around 6100, which is exactly where I deduced it to be from the OBDII readings (see other threads ).
If I am reading the graph correctly, the numbers on the right are the torque readings at peak HP, because both numbers are related to each other (I could go on, but Google "torque vs horse power" will be better )..
One other question, did the same person (who pressed / floored the accelerator) do all three runs?
Another wish, if you go back for another Dyno run using your new setup, is to do one additional test with the ESC fuse out (or with the wireless remote mod), as I suspect the ESC is impacting the ECU and therefore these numbers under load, regardless if the rear wheels slip or not (these numbers should be a tad higher on the 4.6 )...
Tailwalker, again well done and thank you for sharing...
