Still strout numbers!
Thanks

This car is 100% stock other then the blower, the boost was a little under 7lbs @ 6000 rpm... im not sure about the maggies on the 2010 so i have no idea .... most of the positive displacement blowers dont show heat issues untill you turn up the boost and this Kenne Bell is waiting for more .

470 hp with back to back runs is better then 500 only once.. Please understand this is not a Maggie vs Kenne Bell thread

I installed a Kenne Bell unit and wanted to share the result so people can decide on their own if they like it or not...

with a nice cold pass im sure the #s would much higher

4600 miles
Plus i suck a tuning ask Tim..lol....

Great job, Will! I'm sure ur customer will love this setup. U guys beat my numbers. I think, I need to get some headers on now. Haha

Will, just curious, why do set the rpm limit up to 6500? Do u find that the L99s perform better with the higher rev limiter? I think mine is set at 6100. I'll be seeing my dyno sheet soon. So I'll know for sure what my car was set at for the dyno runs.

Anyway, just wanted to say great job again.

Yeah, I hear u. That's a good point. I wish I lived closer to u guys. It would be fun to line our two Kenne Bell L99s up.

My torque varied from 416 all the way up to 439. Adam is going to do play with my tune a little next week. Who knows, maybe there's a few more hp ot tq ft/lbs in there.

Also, I edited my post above and included a question for you. If u wouldn't mind taking. a look.

It helps peak hp, but all the TQ is down low in the rpm range, the stock exhaust is helping the TQ numbers on this car note the graph 3k- 4k is the sweet spot for this setup...and i love the feel!
If i feel a customer likes to play A LOT i will kick the rpm down to 6100.... if you get my drift.lol



thats why Garys car is set @ 4500 rpm....hahah

BTW You have a very good tuner working on your car!!!

That makes sense. Thanks for the response.

And, I agree, Adam can tune with the best of them.

If u don't mind sharing, what was the AFR during the dyno runs? The hp/tq numbers are really good for relatively low boost (7 psi). I think my car was pushing about 1 psi more boost at 6000 rpms. I wonder why that is. We have the same pulley I imagine.

AFR was 11.2-7 and 16*timming "our safe tune" as for the boost ...after talking to mike im going to get try a new sensor when we retun this car at a later date ...im sure they make the same

I'm sure you're right.

That sounds like a nice tune for a stock car.

With the K/B on my L99 which has that really low first gear, when I select tap shift mode my car rockets through the rpm band. And I haven't even tried to floor it from a dead stop. I'm scared my axles will take a beating. Although, full throttle from 2nd gear on a nice roll is pretty fun.

I'm sure the owner of this car will feel the same way.
