I drive a Scion xB. I WISH I had 120 hp. Maybe with a CAI, cat-back and a tune.

MadMaxx, fdjizm please stop bickering. Create a new thread to discuss drive line losses if you want to continue your discussion, but lets keep this thread clean alright?

Erm..were back on topic actually...116# Anywho, what is choking it down ? I thought that the new V6 breath pretty well...they do come with dual exhaust from the factory correct ? It could be a break in...but I guess it depends on just how bogged it is.

What data tells you it's bogged down? Just asking in case you see something I don't.

I'm going off the rather rich AF mix as the choke point. The stock duel exhaust isn't all that bad from my initial inspection of it. Mandrel bent, 2.25" true duel w/ a X pipe near the front. Now... does this have 2 main cats then some resonators, or are there 4 actual cats?

The ausie guys tend to run 2.25" from what I'm reading... oh, and the stock muffler is fracking UGLY underneath weld wise :(

Other easy power mods -- gutting the stock airbox and good flowing filter. I'd like to put this el-chepo mod against a full CAI (which from the pics I've seen of mockups, aren't actually CAI rather high flow filters and heat shields). Would be kinda fun to pull the small plate off the wheel well and draw cold air from the bottom of the car... but the liquid/debris problem might be an issue hehe...

could you replace the plate with a screen of some sort and still get the cold air flow?

Debris vs. screen, that would work. Liquid, not so much. A CAI needs to be designed so that it won't (almost, never, somebody will still do it...) let the engine hydrolock. Some people will drive these cars in the rain; I know, crazy!

Mr. Maxx, how long until the super-spins?

Dyno numbers are...just that. Numbers. Its a whole different story on the track.

I signed up for the phrase a week to be emailed me. I had looked up a meaning of a phrase and thought what the hell. Anyway, it seems the saying was "The proof of the pudding is in the eating". It somehow was reduced to The proof is in the pudding as that is the most common heard phrase today.

RWHP = Rear Wheel Horsepower

304hp is the power at the flywheel. RWHP is after the drivetrain loss. (transmission,axle....)

1. We admit we were powerless over dyno results - that our posting lives had become unmanageable.

etc...
You guys have sh*t in all the Mustang threads on VS and now you are in the V6 forum sh*tting in this thread? Does this site have mods?
