The Beast has landed.....
The PLX gauges are a PITA to set up, but provide fantastic information.
Let's see some more data!
The front cooler is the A2W heat exchanger right? Not an intercooler in the normal sense.
Can you provide technical details on this portion?
Pump info, how much pressure it runs, thermal capacity, etc?
It will be interesting to see how the engine water and oil temps hold up in the summer heat city driving with A/C on.
100+C water temp easy is my guess.
You are adding a whole other core blocking the radiator and A/C condenser core.
But - Car looks great - chrome kidneys have to go though - aluminum would look cool if you don't want black.
Really looking forward to the PRO shots and the video of your freshly detailed S/C beast.
Unless you have had the paint just about perfect before - it's really hard to understand the difference it makes when you are out under a cloudless blue sky. This lasts all of 2 weeks though when you are forced to wash it and inevitably introduce marring and swirls into the clear.
Now for some real road numbers -
Since you are going to be replacing your tires soon - Would you be kind enough to video their demise and share with the group?
Closed course of course.
Then with the fresh rubber and a seated clutch.
80-120kph 3rd gear passing time - steady state 80kph - then time from application of WOT to 120Kph - good idea of throttle response.
60-130mph roll-on time - same deal.
Dynos are fun and all - but it's about making use of that new power that is important
Thanks Tim for sharing the experience with us - it's been great to follow the build.
