Have your tuner send you a VD graph
Or just download the virtual dyno yourself and take a log. It’s free.
@Collin where do I download the Virtual Dyno from
@Toby don’t remember. Prob like the first link on Google. You can ull figure it out lol.
Try to do it on the flattest road you can.
What mods do you have?
I have EGR delete, catted MAPerformance j-pipe to Nvidia N1 duals, Perrin charge pipe, AOS, Grimspeed EBC, COBB SF CAI, Boomba BPV. feel like i’m missing something but thats the main stuff at least
and 93 octane. I think i should be around 290-300 whp and around the same torque but just guessing off what other people are seeing with similar mods
You will probably be around 300ish whp. I agree with you on what you said
@Eric get some tgv deletes as well though
I keep going back and forth about the tgv deletes. From what i know about tgvs deleting them helps in the topend. having them helps in the bottom end which helps with city MPG. this is my DD and i climb lots of hills/mountains in my daily commute.
is VD a program that reads datalog and applies HP and Torque numbers to it?
@Dylan ok thanks. I’ll be doing some datalogs today. i just added the EBC and bpv yesterday.
There is no good way. VD is the only way, and it’s very subjective
@Ray spending $100 and an hour at a dyno is a very good way actually. VD is definitely subjective, a lot of variables can affect it. I’m using it now during my tuning process, but will go to an actual dyno when I’m done e-tuning to get solid numbers put down.
@Richard what did this guy just say? I think it’s implied that he isn’t going to a dyno.
@Richard it’s like dude said…”what’s the best way to cook a turkey?”
And you’re like…”well actually try this duck recipe…”
@Ray “With E-tuning, what is a good way to get an idea of the power I am making?” That’s what he said. He didn’t imply anything, just a simple question.
Just because someone is e-tuning doesn’t mean they’re not willing to go to a dyno. That’s the route I’m currently taking. Halfway through the tuning process now, and I’ll be going to a dyno when it’s done for a few pulls.
@Richard cool story good luck
Easy fellows. I get what you’re both saying. I’m just looking for easy numbers now to get an idea. There is a dyno shop I plan to go to when they do another dyno days. They just did one so might be a little while till I go.
@Eric if that’s your plan, then why are you asking this question? ?
@Ray first, no need to get offended my dude. And second…“Richard Tarenta it’s like dude said…”what’s the best way to cook a turkey?”
And you’re like…”well actually try this duck recipe…””
Nope. Because…I don’t try to assume what people mean, I read what they write, and answer accordingly. Last time I checked mind reading isn’t an actual thing. So…cool story to you also ?
@Richard let me ask you this…if you already plan on going to a dyno…then why in the fuck would you ask Facebook how to get your power numbers with e-tuning?
Richard Tarenta and also…”cool story good luck” doesn’t mean I’m offended. It just means I’ve exhausted my limited amount of time and patience allotted to dealing with stunted logic from people like you on the internet. Have a good one though ✌️
@Ray I was looking for other alternatives. Thanks for your over obvious answer of getting it dynoed.
Eric Pritts actually dude, that was richard’s over-obvious answer. re-read.
@Ray ohh haha. Sorry bro. Thanks for suggesting the virtual dyno. Was checking messages between vaccumming and wash cars.
Ray Russo “Richard Tarenta let me ask you this…if you already plan on going to a dyno…then why in the fuck would you ask Facebook how to get your power numbers with e-tuning?”
I didn’t ask.
“Richard Tarenta and also…”cool story good luck” doesn’t mean I’m offended. It just means I’ve exhausted my limited amount of time and patience allotted to dealing with stunted logic from people like you on the internet. Have a good one though ✌️”
Actually, my answer that spending the time and money to go to a dyno, which is what he apparently planned to do anyways, was the most logical answer. I also agreed with you that VD was a good thing to use in the interim. You’re the one who got all butt hurt over my additional suggestion. I’m just doing this for laughs on my otherwise dreary work day, so thanks for the entertainment. That “stunted logic” comment goes both ways.
Good luck with getting easily offended by comments on FB thing. I’m sure you’ll last long on this page ?
@Eric as Ray Mentioned in another comment, if you planned to get a dyno eventually, that would’ve been a helpful addition to your original question. And since people can’t mind read, I gave the obvious best answer, as you didn’t specifically mention you wanted an alternative to a physical dyno, prior to getting said dyno.
Pro-tip; If you pose a poorly phrased question, don’t be surprised at getting answers you already knew, or answers that are not helpful. Be specific in your question, and people can be more helpful in return.
That being said, good luck with the tune. I’m on to the e85 portion of mine, can’t wait to see the results.
This is mine from 93 convertible tune vs E85 Send It Tune. However subjective it is it gives and idea of the difference. Especially when you make changes and add more bolt ons. One day I want to do a dyno vs virtual dyno off the same pull. Actual vs datalog in VD. However… I live in the sticks with no AWD Dynos within 3 hours. One day it will happen.
Take it to a dyno
I hosted a dyno day
I wouldn’t say VD is “subjective”. It is just doing math and math is not subjective. I would say the accuracy of its output is based on the accuracy of its inputs. Some of those inputs come from user settings, like car weight, and some come from the logs and can be affected by road conditions, like was the road flat. If you can control all those variables then I would say VD is very accurate.
