My car is a freak. I was just wondering if anyone else has done any dynos or anything. Modded or stock. My motor is completely stock, including intake or exhaust.

Those numbers are really good. I remember seeing a legend 6 speed with 205 whp and that was with chip, intake, exhaust, and 18's. Is yours 6 speed/auto?

Auto, unfortunately.
If I remember correctly, factory numbers are:
230hp @ 5800
206ft/lb @ 6100
at the flywheel... for the Type II

Hmmmm...... what kind of dyno is that? and are you sure that's on wheels? that seems high, overly high. And it does not seems like a legend dynograph, unless you mistakenly upload different dynosheet.

This is my dyno sheet, with only intake and Greddy Exhaust, and 19" rims. Just for your comparison.

Mustang Brand Dynamometer
Peformance Dyno LLC
836 Martha Street
Westlake, LA 70669

The crazy curve I think is because it downshifted... I dunno'.
And, yes, it's at the wheels... the only way to tell at the flywheel is to pull the motor or just add roughly 20% to those numbers.
I know, it seems weird. Both the guys running the dyno were quite surprised, as was I. My car is just a freak I think. The dyno was dead on with everyone else as well so I don't think it was off.

That was after driving for 2 hours straight... I was the first person of my group of friends to pull first. The engine was still pretty warm but oh well. I also gather that Mustang dynos calculate different than dynojet and are actually a little pessimistic on numbers... give less of a reading than what it really is. I don't really know though.

I just posted the name and address of the place.
Peformance Dyno LLC
836 Martha Street
P.O. Box 354
Westlake, LA 70669
Phone: (337) 443-4430/ Fax: (337) 443 - 4480

If you're going to call b.s. on me do it already, don't patronize me. I honestly don't care if you believe me. But it would entertain me if you called and asked them to pull up the numbers on a 1995 Legend that ran on 4/20.

Ahh. Well, everyone else seemed to be in question so I was just waiting for someone to call b.s. on me.
I'm sure there's got to be at least a few dyno's in Cali. Call around to performance shops and ask if they know of any dynos you can go to... they should be able to help.

I think you should go and get a second run somewhere else and compare the results. Those numbers are way to high for a stock Auto TypeII engine. The highest I've ever seen a typeII dynoed was 198WHP on a 94 GS sedan, and it was modded.

Also how did they get 221lbs of torque. That's 15lbs more than factory specs. :confused:

Well aware of the differences.
As weird as it is and hard to believe, I have to bring up a point that will help me...
A guy w/ a 305 in his truck only put down 157hp & 211ft/lb.
My friend's B18C1 powered Civic put down 164hp with a Skunk2 intake manifold. The dyno was right where it should be on numbers.
No two dynos will ever give the same reading, no matter what. It's best to continue testing at the same place to get consistent readings, even if not precise, they will be accurate in progress from modifications.

I was honestly VERY surprised and didn't believe it myself until like 10 other cars all went behind me and were putting down numbers exactly like they should have. I probably wouldn't beleive me if I were y'all either, but hey... if you don't beleive me, take what I say with a grain of salt and go about your business.

Hey, don't worry about people saying that you're B.S. You're brave already on putting you dyno sheet here. Some people might just don't believe, but don't worry.

Well, my suggestion is, go to another dyno place, and possibly the one with Dynojet 248C, so at least we can see how it is.

I also dynoed my car twice, once at NOPI, and once at ACS Racing the one that you see there. Both shows similar graph, but different peak HP, but at least the curve is similar.

Your curve is kinda weird, sorry to say that, but don't take it personally OK.

Well, if I insulted you in any way, I apologize. Thanks. :D

Those numbers are impressive! I do hope you try another dyno too. I know the results won't be the same but they should be in the same ball park.

What gear did you do this run in. I believe 3rd is as near to a 1 to 1 ratio as possible. If you were running in a lower gear the inflated numbers would be the result of torque manipulation...ie because of the gearing the car is showing more HP than it really has. If you were in 3rd will you sell the engine? :D

Well I believe you! And thanks!

The dyno posting proves the high points in both the torque and HP curves are 4500+. Thanks for posting. We manual guys can keep running high RPM's!
Again, thanks and be true only to yourself!

Hey guys, I don't have pics of my dyno sheet, but I posted it a while ago, my numnbers were:

194 whp
178 ft lbs tq

I was in 4th gear at the time, from 3500-6500. We didn't do any runs in third, but if we had, I'm sure that my numbers would have been higher...

There is one way to trick the dyno into giving you higher #, with an Auto.

When in D3 you just floor it from a dead stop, that will downshift the tranny to the lowest gear creating a JOLT of Torque with every shift also greatly enhancing the final HP output.

D3 should be selected then gas should be applied slowly till 3500-4000 and then floor to revlimit.

My Auto Type 2 Hybrid with intake, Exhaust, & chip dynoed to 185WHP and 170lbft @Motorsport Dynamics in Sac Town

I run a 15.2 N/A and 13.60 NOSed


My suggestion to you is to go to the Track. A Legend with your torque and HP should run a high 13 or a low 14 sec time, No B.S.
