    Default Good power, poor torque

    This compressor would be ideal on a GTB17 turbine but it is too late coming in on a standard GT17 turbine. One to keep in mine for the future though, if I ever get round to putting in bigger injectors.

    The torque does not die early lol 300lbft just before 4500rpm
    The torque peaks late and if you compare it to other 1.9 graphs, you'll see that it is much higher at the top end, thus the 230bp at 5000rpm.
    It is more aggressive low down on the road but all in all, not much good until 2200rpm.

    And you'll note the road wheel losses are quoted very low on this older style rolling road. It consistently gives me lower figures than I get at RS tunings rollers.
