Official SR20DE dyno proven power thread

Ok guys here is a thread that will anwser most of if not all of your questions on popular bolt-ons for the SR20DE motor. Please try not to cloud this thread up with you should of done this or that. i did all of these on purpose with this specific inteniton of sharing my findings. if you have questions please dont hesitate to ask i will post them in the thread with an anwser. thanks for reading

Mac

First off this is a 1991 Sentra SER with roughly 169XXX miles. AC is still in and will be removed at a later date.

Modifacations in the thread include:
Aem Cold air intake
Ebay 2.5" header
Obx test pipe
Jim Wolf Technology S3 cams
JWT ecu tune
HKS Sport Exhaust
9lbs. Flywheel


Base line power

the 119 and 120hp pulls where in 4th
the 102 was in 4th with the ac on. i aways wondered what the Hp drop was with the ac on. now i know.







INTAKE
Here is the dyno with the AEM Cai installed. i used the my 119whp run as an overlay cause it doesnt have the dip the 120whp does and is more realisticly the accurate pull.

Most of you will laugh at the fact that i made almost 4whp over stock. but as you can see there is more to the gains then peak HP. and im sure that a few of you know that power band is more important then peak hp.

You can see in the graph that from 3300rpm to 5000rpms i am making more HP then on the stock pull. but from 5k rpms to 5.7k rpms i am making the same as stock. from 5.7k rpms to redline i am making much more then i was stock. in some parts around10-12whp more. also my peak hp is moved to almost 6.5krpms. about 300rpm later then stock. torque is almost not changed at all. this is a good thing and a bad thing but does not effect the feel of the car at all.


the over all feel of the car now is very smooth in the top end and feels much better. i can feel the car pull more but i am very aware that there is some mental aspect to that.

Exhaust

Here is the dyno with the hks exhaust and i must say i am very impressed with the findings. much better then i expected. in this its my base, Intake Installed, and intake and exhaust installed you can see the top end gained a very good amount of power as much as 20whp over stock. cant wait to get headers and see the gains. the exhaust is to quiet so im going to be installing a test pipe. well see if any gains are produced





JWT S3 CAMS, JWT ECU, AND TEST PIPE
Installed the JWT S3 cams and test pipe. i was very inpressed with the gains. the torque is unbeliveable. the intake exhaust run is the last dyno i had.Now the cam run is very impressive with the amount of torque it is making. you can also see that the line is much smoother then the blue run. this is due to a new cap , rotor and wires. the parts are not new but they are nissan where my car had cheap aftermarket set on them, so they are new to the car. the s3 cams with JWT ECU run is not bad at all raising the HP and TQ all through the power band. well some would take that flash as a waste of money but the car did make more power and idles much smoother now then it did with out it. the drivablity is also better with it.





HEADER
heres the dyno with a ebay header and a 2.5" outlet. The Blue Run is the header installed and the Red Run is the last run i did see above for more info on that run. the headers were a great complement to the whole setup i have going right now. you can see that every part of the rpm range has a gain, not one spot does not. the peak is only 7whp which is more then i was expecting. this doesnt exactly mean if you put just a header on it will provide this kind of HP i think with the cams intake ect they are a good compliment for it all.





FLYWHEEL

dyno with the flywheel only made 2whp and 2wtq at peak but like all the other mods its is through out the power band. the engine revs much smoother and faster. rev match is like breathing its super easy.





i installed my factory cat and looks like i lost alot of power through out. sucks but now i dont have any buzz in the exhaust anymore.



i will be installing S4s next week so stay tuned for that.

maybe it's just me but i thought this thread's purpose was more of a step-by-step of what you can expect from certain mods and less of a "post up your dyno sheets" sort of thing?

Here's a shot from some day...

Dyno & Other info:
---Mustang Dynometer (Product #: MD-IMP-SE) using Powerdyne Software
---Curb weight inputted was 2586lb's
---All runs were in 4th Gear
---Told him to Stop Testing at about 6.8k (RR and I don't really rev that high)
---Hood remained closed for each run...

Results???: (Check Post #2 for Graphs/Videos)

EDIT: (xx/xx/xx)
156whp 135ft-lb @ the wheels w/ cam addition
(yeah, not sure why... haven't bothered to investigate much)

And lastly... I hit my speed governor in all my runs so Fuel Cut Owns me... YRMV

Graphs/Pics

Same Mustang Dynometer

This was with stock cams when it was about 47 degrees outside, 60 or so in shop - 154whp/136ft-lb's


This was After the S3R's when it was 87 outside, 95 on the shop wall, 93 on the floor and muggy. 156.XXwhp/135ft-lb's


Disregarding the weather differences... :::sigh::: I'll have to get another dyno when its cold outside with the cams...

Dyno #1 of the day... 2.5" SSAC Header


Dyno #2 of the day... 2.5" SSAC Header

the dyno programs correct for altitude, temp, humidity, ect... in different countrys and some areas have a set correction factor. in the USA we use SAE. uncorrected shows the run with no correction for the above. usally less horse power.

the air fuel graph on your car looks good. its right around 13:1. its lean just before 3500rpms but its to low to really see any significant gains. you could gain maybe 1-2whp with leaning out the top end but once a gain not really worth it. you might need to change your timing or do a tune up. the dip in the top end is not a good thing. from 6200-6800rpms. it should look more like your base line only taller. like this: this is my base and final

Me and G Spec performance are in the middle of some pulley testing. ill post that stuff when ihave the info. i would love to do more parts changing but i dont have the access to those parts. if some one was to donate them for a bit for research i would gladly put them on.

yeah if anybody wants to 'donate' parts to mee too i wouldn't mind...

seriously though, would it be hard to get 160 whp? what else would you need to do? it seems like you have done all the bolt-ons so i don't see how you could make 20 whp more when everything you've done has only amounted to 20 whp.

160 whp is definitely attainable with a DE... its been broken down a few times.

Decent Header
2.25-2.5" Full Exhaust
Aftermarket Camshaft
CAI/WAI
Pop Charger
Intake Thermal Spacer
W/P & Crank Pullies
Throw in some Timing
Low Humidity Dyno Day

That should be it on a stock ECU

SAFC to squeeze more ponies if necessary

Throw a Flywheel in the mix for kicks...

he has all of that minus the pullies, intake thermal spacer, SAFC. But he's got a JWT computer.

so you think those few mods and a low humidity day would give him 20whp more?

on a track only car he could upgrade the cams but not much more on a street car, maybe with S4's or S5's due to drive-ability issues.

Right?

Also depends on the condition of the motor. Some are stronger than others... it all depends. So obviously having a good strong motor to start out with helps alot.

Be polite, be professional, have a plan to kill everyone you meet.

drivability issues can be up to the driver. its much harder to drive a car that you have to get the revs up to get it to move alittle bit or a car that makes no torque low end. real lopey idles can be hard to start off with out reving the engine higher. but in some cases when the car is only driven on the weekend it can be acceptable.
