Time for some numbers, thats what many of you where thinking! Well yesterday it was time to run the car in and afterwards do some power runs. It was quite a stressful day. We started around 14:30 @ DP Engineering Nijmegen where they have a great Dyna Pack Hub Dyno, Martijn took place in the passenger seat to work his magic. First task ahead was slowly run the car in on low revs. Allowing for the block to run in. Everything went quite okay, but soon we found we had a small cooling issue. The temperature sensor of the water pump controller was in the wrong place. Resulting in very big temperature drops and rises. Luckely Dave and Pieter came up with a solutions, and in 1 hour time we where back up and running! My Honda is now equipped with a Peugeot part .
As it was getting kinda late, it was time for food. After a good healthy meal (ROFL) we continued mapping the car up to 5k rpm without Vtec. Then it was time for an oil change and Refuel of the car. As the E85 Bio Ethanol was running out quickly. After some fresh oil and E85 it was ready for the first steps into the Vtec area.
Then it was time for the more serious stuff, POWER RUNS! The power build up of the engine is great. And the engine feels really responsive, you can see that Ian @ Clockwise worked his magic on the engine. The peak torque of 269.2 N/m is @ 7300 Rpm, the max power is @ 8300 Rpm resulting in a whopping 300,3 bhp (255,3 @ the hubs) NA power. I’m very very please with the results, a picture of the dyne sheet (going to scan it soon as well for higher quality):
Time for some video:
