Mustang is most certainly not the most conservative dyno out there.
How is AWE getting more HP out of the S3 kO4 for the 2.0T, than the actual S3. They are using all of the S3 parts and using GIAC as a tuner. Please inform how this is possible. Maybe there is something that I am missing.
Stasis has, in essence, the same exact kit, and are using the same tuner, but they are getting two different numbers.
If a person were to have an S3 with a full exhaust with GIAC programming they get one number, AWE gets another, and stasis another. all running KO4 with s3 injectors.
KMD is using larger injectors than the S3 ones, their kit seems to be the most complete, with fuel pump, CAI, dv relocate kit, all hardware, hoses, and then a person can get software starting at 175 to 699. And there are people on here complaining about pricing on turbo upgrades for 5k-6k looking @ this kit you can easily be at 3500.
You need to read the thread more closely. It's stated that AWE took the K04 from the S4 and did additional work on the turbo to increase flow.
Stasis 290tq 300hp
Awe 345tq 315hp
Awe (w/ ic) 346tq 325hp
Awe (w/ ic & intake) 357tq 345hp
Someone in that mix must be running REALLLY hot, especially if they have no upgraded fueling. Thoughts?
Lastly, where did AWE get their highest figures (357/245)? Maybe I read it wrong, but their graphs say they estimate crank numbers by multiplying by 1.15 (seems a bit high). Even with that high 1.15 number, I'm not getting their figures from their dyno:
Max I get is (355/335). Maybe it's a typo or from another run.
Anyways, what's everyones thoughts on this?
