230-240 depending on your stock car imo

That seems to be the norm for those mods, without the engine manifold (I think!!!) Mr JP had 225bhp with those mods. He DIDNT have flashpro and also had a standard "R" under 200bhp too..

Pretty close I reckon..

Not naming any names but there are some very optimistic dyno's out there, critically it depends on what you are putting out standard, but with the aforementioned mods I would say you should expect to see 225-230BHP on an "R" making factory quoted power.

is that an informed knowledgable opinion or a best guess?
this is a copy paste from Dawid s signature and he claims 250 bhp

if you do the calculations and find out horse/money value .......you realise that its a huge task and don't think worth it IMO.

My thoughts exactly....different dyno's rarely give the same results, with the amount of variables and human input etc but I think I get the picture....CPL will be doing the work so should be reliable and as accurate as possible.......Thanks....:)

CPL are one of the good ones, I've been in there workshop and dyno room and seen they do proper runs etc with proper IT's and no fudging at all.

Be sure to get your figures posted up here as and when please :D

hub dynos are the most accurate but there are parameters like ambient temperature or in wich gear or how many seconds do the run........... and you can have different numbers in the same dyno and the same car .

As for "money for results" my friend you are quite right.....having spent sums of money tuning bikes I know only too well things never add up.....but being an old petrol head what can I do.....;)

you are right the variables are huge, but I feel if you get things fitted and set up by a well known, reputable outfit then you stand a chance of getting the most reliable use from any modifications

Dynos are just tuning tools. Bhp figures are just calculated guesses and pub talk. It's how it drives that is important but regardless of who you use 230 should be attainable.

Alternatively px the FN2 and get a ab S2000 and get te best engine output ever made for a stock 2 litre! ;)

Rolling roads are great fun ... But you'll need to use the same one each time you test a mod. That way you can setup the same conditions and actually see a change. I know locally the rolling roads read differently with the same car and approx conditions. In one case 25bhp gain over the average readings

I would agree that it's important to use the same dyno/specialist.....I did a little homework and although I have some locally decided to use one such specialist over 3 hrs drive away. Important, oh yes:p

so might be a bit faster if it was not that warm hopefully ;)
