hey guys.
went to morpower auto and dyno centre today to see how much power i could get out of my VT 5 litre.

When i got there it got 134rwkw and after a bit of a tweak of the timing they managed to get me 141.3rwkw.
I was stoked......considering it only has a cat back system and a K&N filter.

Net mod will be a new set of Diff gears probably 3.7 gears.
cheers

best thing i did was get chip torque to redo the computer, it made the most difference to how the car drove alot better response now and much better economy at the same time.

i have a twin 2.5 and the computer and kn filter plus all the std hsv extra's

haven't got a chance to do the diff but it would be a good improvement

when the VT first come out here (nz)one was put on a dyno, no mods it was retuned. before, 142.9rwkw. after 151.1rwkw or a gain of 8.2kw. ihave it on good authority that this particular dyno reads a little higher than others but what we are looking at here is the difference between before and after and it's a standard motor, with othermods like intake and exhuast i would expect a little more maybe.

That was just for a dizzy spinning tune subdue, you can do that in your driveway, base timing up 2-4 degrees, there's your 5-10 rwkw
