For those of you who are curious, my recent dyno tuning resulted in a fantastic power increase (about 20hp & 20ft/lbs). The car feels faster than it has ever been….scary fast! Those Pantera guys better watch out next weekend at Willow Springs!A big “Mahalo” to Mike and the guys at Area 51 Fabricators for fixing me up! I was a bit of a skeptic before regarding dyno tuning, but no longer. If you follow the Speedvision series, you know that PD Cunningham did a bunch of dyno work to remain competitive after the series rulemakers decided to cut his boost in half. It seems that most everyone in the NSX community is of the mindset of simply bolting-on their mods. Labor intensive mods seem to scare folks away. Take short gears. It costs a bit more to install them than to buy the parts. All said and done, short gears installed will cost you about the same as headers and exhaust installed. Most people who know will agree that short gears get you more of am bang than headers and exhaust, however more people spring for headers and exhaust. Maybe so they can take them off and sell them when they sell their car? I donno. It’s kinda the same deal with dyno tuning. The secret? Well, it’s the skill of the tuner, who has to create a fuel map for your particular car. Mike really knows his stuff. You should have see my car rigged up with remote O2 sensors and all sorts of computerized diagnostic equipment. You may be interested in looking at the little black box that I now have installed in my car that maintains and can be used to edit this new fuel map: http://www.roadraceengineering.com/newafc.htm This little do-hickey is a heck of a lot cheaper than a Motec! It and the hour or so of dyno time that it entails is probably about the best bang for the buck for a supercharged car.
