Im in SA mate, a video would be awesome.
i was told that stock the VE SS gets around 270rwhp. Mine with a pod CAI and Hurricane extractors and 2 1/2" system with 200 cell cats got 290rwhp. After the tune it was almost 330rwhp or about 246rwkw.
Stock VE SS Series 2 is about 220 rwkw, I'm told by a number of sources ( Oztrack for one). Series 1 was a bit less. The engine was slightly tweaked.
Adding a good tune and OTR will take the s2 to about 250rwkw.
I get confused by HP figures.
1hp = .75kw if i convert the other way, it says 1kw = 1.34hp
hmmm 220rwkw standard, mine isnt even at there now.....maybe this dyno is a little low on output readings.
Ive just re read my posts about the tune & i just want to reiterate that I'm completely happy with the service i got from Enhanced & were not having a dig at Brad's work.. Just incase it read that way bcos its easy to read things into written word on the internet.
I was just expecting more power, but ive also never had a car thats so heavy so when i think about 200+rwkw i expect a little more up & go
Yeh gt35, it feels like a boat too . So big eh I'm hoping to improve handling, maybe then it'd feel faster somehow!
yeah nothing like my AU ute though, thank god...
you do always feel like you're going faster when you corner, so you might be onto something there.
Oh & how much does fuel octane affect power output when tuning? I just found out this morning that the misses has been using the blue pump at shell (95) as she though it was their premium & hence got tuned with that in the tank.
Good question. I'm not sure.
I have had my 6ltr since brand new and have just clocked 60k and have always put calyx vortex 98 inand I am getting 11.6. Out of it and it's a daily driver
That's pretty good, that's what I'd get if I sit on 110 in 6th gear for a long time, don't think I can get it below that...
Around town mines normally around 17.5-20L/100 (with no weight)..
around town I can get 12-13 if take it easy, goes up to 15-16 if i try to get up to to speed quickly all the time.
Im not sure about highway driving because I'm always towing my boat when i go long distances so i dont pay much attention to economy.
I never got below 14L / 100km when tuned. That was 50/50 city/highway to and from work everyday. Now with cam, it sits - suprisingly - at 16.5 doing the exact same trip on the same road.
Before the tune on the highway i got about 9/100 with the cruise set to about 110 with 4 adults in it. 2 weeks away on the gold coast, more than 2,000 K's and came home averaging 11.9 driving around surfers paradise most days. Pretty damn good!
Pretty funny people comparing fuel when it comes out the same refinery in Singapore
not entirely right there;Supply Reliability
Agree 100% on that. I never use anything but Ultimate in mine and it runs ever so smoothly. My mechanic told me that Ultimate is made by Shell but BP put their own additives in it to give it the level of perfromance they claim it delivers. He aslo told me that on dyno runs Ultimate gave the best perfroamce out of all other fuels. Although what that perfromance is I don't know. Probaly RPM response or something like that.
I can safely say I cannot tell the difference between 91 and 98, not sure how you tell when the difference is minimal..
Could not tell with my 2010 redline ute, I now have a 2011 redline wagon n still can't tell. Only slight better consumption on 98.. But that's both with only a catback..
i notice a big difference in the SS when you put lower octane fuel in it. Although they say to put 98 in it. My wife once thought she would be smart and save some money and put 91 E10 in it.... it went from a weekly average of about 12/100 up to nearly 14/100 and it felt sluggish. Haven't put anything but Caltex Vortex in it since.
when my tune was done, the torque management & auto shift pressure want touched.
I want these done now as most tuners do it in there tunes, should I be able 2 go back & get it done at no cost?
