Default Smokeys dyno, ported TB's, manifolds etc

So I finally got tuned today at Smokeys and I believe the 2nd here. Although the old tuner is gone for reasons that aren't good I guess. To my great surprise the car was still rich! It was rich stock I'm sure, rich with a CBE and CAI, rich with a LTH, and rich with ported TB's, ported upper and lower manifold. Average looks to be around 11.6-11.8. That sucks because I was taking it easy for fear of being lean for like 3 weeks after the manifolds and TB were installed.



Now after the tune its running around 12.6-12.7. The tuner said some run into the 13's but we felt safe with it turning into a track car to not make a dyno queen. I was told timing had been picked up around 3-4 degrees and there were some issues with uprev. The data logger was acting up only getting some of the items at times and the 2013 ROM wasn't doing what he wanted it to do. He would tell it to do things and it wouldn't 100%. Pretty much took all day after waiting 2 hours for uprev to email a license and some other things then start to build a new MAF map.

Since the car was rich he did a base run pull with the OEM size MAF housing so we could see a before and after on his dyno. I've never been on this one before and never heard of it. It's called a superflow AWD and uses something called STP instead of SAE or STD. After the base he started turning everything up. We swapped the MAF from 2.5" to 2.75" and finished it up. Results look to be around 15hp and 6tq at max peak with around 15hp and 15tq above 4500rpm in the mid range (minus that base run boost from 6300-7100). Pretty much what I thought a NA tune would do.



Next I have to get back on the dyno I've been to a few times before and really compare all of them!!

Mods.

My experience with uprev as well was that when it comes to timing you tell it to do something and it gives you the finger.

No like I said its a superflow AWD dyno in STP which I've never heard of. It does have the ability to show dynojet numbers but whats the point when it's not a DJ and I'm spinning a AWD dyno?

Thanks

Lol. Well he said fuel at 12.6-12.7 and 3-4 degrees more of timing are perfect and holding strong! He said he could go more but again with a track car we don't want to run on the ragged edge of knock when it's not a drag car. He must be talking about of things in the tune. He tried for an hour or so but nothing he did showed results. So I'm not sure what the ecu didn't like.

Nice numbers I guess if that thing reads SUPER LOW. I know all dynos are different bt the mustang I use here in MA is a "heart breaker" and I made 296 WHP and 230 WHTRQ unturned with I:E and HFC's( Light Red-Blue)

The other run( Nov 2013 Dark red-dark Blue) on there is my UPREV tuned I:E only Stock cats.

Well that's the problem with mustangs and this dyno. They can read what ever you want them too. I still prefer a dynojet to be most accurate.
