Well heres a write up of todays Yorkshire Region Rolling Road.
We had a good mix of cars on the rollers:-
2 1.9 CDTi 150's
a 3.0 CDTi
a 2.0 Turbo with BSR remap
a 3,2 GSi
We did have some concerns regarding traction control,
but after perservering on the rollers for a minute the
cars just gave up and switched the TC off themselves.
Motorscopes rolling road is a 2 wheel drive affair that
can take upto 250bhp. It has a local repuation for accurate
results and consistancy. Unfortunately it can only measure
BHP at the wheels.
A few run were done on standard spec cars and 30bhp was
decided on as being acceptable transmission losses.
Rob the dyno operator (who owns Motorscope) was very
helpful through the day, supplying lots of knowledge
and advice and even Robbieben with a screwdriver. He
seemed as interested in the results as everyone else.
Interestingly he hooked up and Air/Fuel meter for the
petrol cars, and showed that Rob W's was ever so slightly
overfuelling (not by anything to worry about though).
A good morning was had by all, and with Keith (Gripper) and Philjs
comming along to join in the natter the event went well
First up was mine own 1.9 CDTi 150, totally standard
which managed 128BHP @ wheels, assuming transmission losses of 30bhp
gives 158bhp @ flywheel.
next up was Andy and his 1.9 CDti 150 in standard tune
which managed an excellent 125bhp @ wheel = 155bhp @ flywheel
next came Robbiebens 3.0 CDTi.
Robbie is currently experimenting with
different profiles on his tuning box. after tweaking away with the
help of Rob at Motorscope he managed 162bhp@wheels = 192bhp @ flywheel
Markspark and his 2.0T BSR remap came next
Mark got 164bhp @ wheel = 194bhp @flywheel.
and last but not least was Rob W and his stock 3.2 Gsi
Robs motor managed 165bhp @ wheels = 195bhp @ flywheel.
heres a few other pics of the day
