Dyno tuned the 91 SS

Post by macipusy » Thu Dec 17, 2009 12:49 am

I got my 91 SS dyno tuned by Harvey at The Boost Creep Ltd.

This is on a stock longblock with 230K and crappy 22t heads.
I'm running the vf39 with 550cc injectors at 17psi tuned with the pp6.

Made 270ftlbs and 240hp...the torque is expected but hp seems good for the heads.

Very nice! So you just have a stock ej22t with a new turbo at 17psi? I'm just asking because that seems too good to me for that.

Those numbers seem reasonable. The 22T heads are capable of making some power. Just not as much as other options.




I was making around 300 with the 2871R and Delta cams.

I am running the 550cc Sti injectors, which allow the good match for the vf39. I also have a ton of other mods, but those are mostly supporting and don't have much to do with the power output.

The dyno this was done on is comparable to the other shops in the mile high area.

I am super happy with this setup for the moment. The car feels pretty fast. I was making 240tq and 180hp with the td04 at 16psi, so it's a good increase for just the vf39.

This gives me some time to enjoy this power while I build my 2.35L stroker. I will be starting a build thread for that shortly.

This is exactly what I was questioning was comparing the td04 to the vf39 performance. I will definitely be looking into larger turbo upgrades and injectors for the future when revtronix releases a fully tuneable chip. ATM with the td04 on a auto i am pretty happy as the torque does a good job, if my car was stick would probably want the hp too. Actually I want the HP and torque no matter what :D

One thing to keep in mind for this setup is the intercooler. The 06 WRX TMIC I am running is too small with the vf39 at 17psi. It definitely heat soaks and it was evident. When we did 4 pulls on the dyno in a row, each pull lost between 5-10 hp. When we let the car cool off for 20-30 min, the next pull was always good.

I actually saw 280ftlbs and 245hp on one of the pulls, but the curve was more choppy, so we didn't print that one.

I am now looking into running a FMIC.

wait, swapping from a td04 to a vf39 with the tune alone gained you 60hp and 30tq?

I wonder how meth injection helps? Or a IC sprayer.

I did install a lightweight flywheel in between the td04 and vf39....so that might account for some to the wheels power increase.

The rest of the improvement is from the vf39 and re-tune.

holy crap, i just didn't expect THAT MUCH of a power increase over the TD04, is it a pretty agressive tune?

Yes this is AWHP....I am guessing that is around 350ftlbs/315hp at the crank

Wow! Looks like it actually holds ~240 hp all the way to redline, too!

Feels like it pulls hard all the way now. Before, with the td04, it dropped off up high.

The tuning was done by Harvey, who owns his shop....The Boost Creep Ltd. He has been around for a long time in the Denver/Boulder area and is a very reputable tuner.
