  1. Yip at Gavin's. I didn't ask for a print out, but we actually made 375rwhp before dialling it back. I'm told his dyno often reads lower than others, but meh... a dyno is a TUNING TOOL, not a bragging tool... I'll take a video in the weekend of idle.
  2. Haha, fair enough... i'm not telling porkies, rest assured. This is the only video I got of the day and it's close enough to 370 to prove it... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-mlPsJxJVQ
  3. Without the cam work, the idle was mint. With cams, the ICV was struggling to keep the idle level and it hunted. Currently sounds good, can definitely tell they're not factory!
  4. I made 195rwkw/260rwhp on the M60B44 with reground cams using factory M60B40 ECU. Gavin did some non-boost tuning and it made ~205rwkw/275rwhp. This is my first personal experience with a standalone ECU (and re-wiring, let alone tuning one...), but I found after research, reading and speaking with knowledgeable people, the learning curve wasn't bad and I learnt a lot. The car wasn't running without the LINK and he didn't tune with boost to start with, rather safely tune off-boost and move into it. The LINK team are friendly and helpful with questions... being NZ based is also useful while the car is on the dyno and the owner (me) asks something to specifically be tuned from Gavin... literally within 5min the answer was found and we pressed on.... I am very happy with Gavin, the LINK, the tune, the build and the car!
  5. Made ~276rwkw (~370rwhp) at 5psi of boost without water/methanol. Heat soak was a problem. We experimented a little bit with water/methanol and reduced the intake charge temps from 60degC to 42degC, but didn’t proceed to pull more power out of it. Car is on a safe tune with more to be done in the new year after tidying up a few things. Overall extremely happy... Christmas has come early for me . Thanks Gavin at hi velocity.
  6. Still after one?
  7. If you're still after one, I can also help
  8. That was a while ago now Mike! I'm told the setup was running 8psi with an aftermarket pulley, but i'm expecting something more like 6/7psi. It's a centrifugal powerdyne unit (ex-Dinan)
  9. Bump, one day to go. Pick up a bargain

  11. Hi, Yes! I have been updating my personal facebook page mainly, but a summary below. Supercharger installed Link Extreme ECU installed Water/Methanol Kit installed Exhaust redone Should be at the tuners in 3-5weeks (personal life dependent...) Will post pictures and the chronological progress in the coming weeks...hoping for 300wkw / 400whp (ish)
  12. As per link below. http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=1405135421

  14. Also using a 4.4L bottom end. Unfortunately the torque readings were stuffed...it said 300nm...which I don't think is right! I would expect somewhere in the 450nm range maybe?
  15. Dyno run done. 195kw (261hp) at the wheels and 243kw (325hp) calculated at the flywheel, using standard M60B40 DME/tune. Factory stated figures are 210kw / 286 hp at the flywheel. Video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b4_XDV8JTU0&feature=youtu.be
