Standard baseline 3rd Gen numbers???

I dyno'd my 3rd gen and hit 220hp and 265ftlbs torque at the wheels of the 3 pulls. Does this seem normal? My setup is a SMIC, 3" intake, 2.5" TKO exhaust, MBC set to 17PSI. No downpipe. Biggest difference in the pulls was -5hp and -10ftlbs torque. Using the 18% powertrain loss rule, i'm sitting at 260hp and 320ftlbs torque at the crank. Any guidance would be appreciated!

Where did you get 18% first off, it is closer to 14-15%. Second who cares what the crank HP is? The only number that matters is what it puts to the ground.

Finally, where is your dyno sheet and what dyno did you dyno on?

I am still alive, just busy with life. Still got the MR2 sitting the in driveway. Someday it will be back on the road. When that will be only God knows. It will be really fast when it is though.

It sounds about right..... wait did not see the modds..... looks like your missing some power, but that depends on the dyno used for the test. If it was a dynojet then your missing anywhere between 15 to 35 whp.... what kind of gas btw? (91 oct, 93 oct, or higher)

Seems low for 17psi. Was thinking it should be closer to 260whp. Nobody cares for crank hp...

I'll post it in the next day or so and i'll find out which type of dyno is was. The only reason I care for 300hp at the crank is to say I'm in the 300hp club and that in turn should help to sell it. Unfortunately, I'll have to sell it after putting the downpipe and FCD on. I still have ganador mirrors untouched in the box. That'll be sold with it as well.

You will get more out of it by reverting it to OEM stock actually.

Also no one cares about Crank HP numbers, weather buying a car or not.

Torque looks good. Horsepower seems lacking. Boost leaks?

That dyno sheet is useless, don't worry about it.

Haha crank club!!! Numbers do seem low, but it could be the dyno. I'd think you would be between 260-285 @ 17 psi. Unless you have a virgin that makes gobs of power. I have/had one.
