Now as far as butt dyno numbers, I don't trust em. No official calibration methods.
Anyway good numbers, but you should dynoed the car before the swap so you could see how much of a gain you got. Or ran the car at the track, did you do that? You can compare mph from the different runs.
Anyway. Like I said in the other post. Whenever you're ready.wasey13 said:OOOOOOOOK.
You can come too.Rich said:Correct. Torque is the force that hp is derived from. HP is only a number and nothing else. But LS1 guys already know that cause theyre some of the smartest people alive
Look at the redline difference, gearing differences, displacement, sooooooo many things.DarricksZ28 said:You can come too.
But just to throw it out there, explain how a 2.0L Honda 4cyl can make 5-600hp but only 3-400 or less ft-lbs of torque? Just curious because I don't know the theory behind it. But I do know you can build an engine that makes tons of horsepower up top but torque is not that great and vice versa. Intake runner length, port volume, header primary lengths, duration, stuff like that affect horsepower and torque. What about diesels? Turbo diesels making 4 digit torque numbers, but considerably less 3 digit horsepower? Explain it please. Build an engine for producing excellent torque numbers only and you'll be disappointed on the big end, and the same goes for an engine built for high horsepower but the disappointment will be down low. Feel free to explain because like I said I don't know the theory behind it. But I have built engines and helped build engines for performance use. And I'm not an LS1 guy, I'm a Chevy guy. I was in this WAY before the GEN III engine came on the scene.
Hmmm, ok. I wasnt being sarcastic. I really meant what I said when I said LS1 guys are some of the smartest on the planet. Stupid internet portraying false sarcassmDarricksZ28 said:No, come out for some good ole street racing. Money or fun. I promise we won't send you home too broke.
