    Default Just made 207bhp at the WHEELS!!!

    well some of you may know i went on a rolling road day today, not a great turnout but hey ho but ermmmm...

    yea i made 207bhp@ 5750rpm and 215ft.lb torque @4000rpm

    at the WHEELS!!!

    i got the graph and i said excuse me can u tell me my wheel hp and he said thats it!!! omg i was gobsmacked....how did my seriously standard 3.2gsi do that?

    the chap said (and i quote) 'tell u wat you have blown me away with this, we have alot of vectras come here, with bigger tb's, cams, meaty exhaust and spent soo much money and stil wont make that figure you should be very happy'.

    So if anyone wants to work out the flywheel horsepower be my guest if you use the standard formula of 15% transmission loss you get 238bhp however if you go by 20% as some people seem to the you get....errrm lol!

    as you can believe i am abit sceptical as to how it ran so well completely standard, so first chance i get im going to jump back on the rollers for a second opinion, but will post pics shortly just to prove im not full of bull!

    as said sometimes standard is the best, so much research goes into cars when there being built. N/A cars are hard to get power out of and expensive

    running her on v-power, as far as im aware shes never been touched, 2 owners, 1 female and 1 'older' chap i believe so i cant imagine theyd have taken the time to tune it haha.

    only ripped the piping out the bottom of the airbox and still has standard filter....hense why im soo suprised....yet all the other cars on the day were about right for what they expected:s mine jus ripped the place up...woops!
