Thanks Randy and Todd for the work on the dyno today
« on: October 25, 2008, 09:16:39 PM »


took the allroad down to run on a dyno.  it ended up putting down 417 lb ft and 385 hp at the wheels.

if I use a stanard conversion of multiply by 1.28 to find crank power with quattro, that would put the car at 533 ft lbs and 492 hp at the crank.  WOW.  this car is a monster.

for comparison today 2 stage III B5 S4's ran immediately after mine on the same dyno.  they were each getting ~375 lb ft and 350 hp.  there were a couple potential differences to account for the difference in power.  first is my cold air intake - they were both running stock airboxes, second was the difference between the BEL and APB motors if any, and finally was quality of the gas.  My runs were on 91 octane shell pump gas.  Both S4s had used at least a partial tank of unknown quality 91 octane.

anyway, I am happy with the results.  it was a good day!

You are welcome to a ride anytime Jay.

thanks.  kind of explains why you got through 1st gear so fast, huh?

I try not to look back there.   ;)

It was fun to take a bunch of cars we have built over the last year or two and see what they can do.  I will admit that I am very proud of Andrew's Allroad!  After two motor pulls, lots of work on the intercoolers, and a mind numbing amount of time working on the tuning, Todd and I are thrilled.

BTW - We ran at Carz Custom in Lakewood.  They have a Super Flow dyno and the best set-up of fan's I have seen.  They are great people and were very helpful.  If you want to Dyno your car, this is a great place to go.  The Dyno is not a "heart-breaker" but it is not as easy as Dyno-Jet.

Whoa. Andrew, that's insane. You have your own, off-road RS6 there...or something.

Yeah, I was told to use a STOCK AIR BOX with my K04 Setup, I do have a EvoMS Intake that was on the car prior.  ::)

I'd be surprised if any real power is to be had from an intake.  I think it's all in the programming.  When Tony from EPL came out and tweaked all those cars, he gained anywhere up to 60whp in just the software...

Agreed. I have an EvoMS CAI and Matt heatshield and didn't notice or log anything other than a cool sound. ;D Randy and Todd know how to program too. I don't believe they did anything other than tweak the best they could out of Andrew's ride.

His car has that intake because we can not use a stock air box due to the size of the end tank on the RS6 Intercoolers.

I made a little more than half of that power and I still am not happy. Time to start saving for the BFT.
