No, I didn't install it myself. Qais at SouthBay AutoHaus did the install. ACT HD clutch, Fidanza Flywheel, Morosso oil pan, and Manly's motor mounts were also installed. The car is 1000X more fun to drive!

Here's a vid of the second dyno run.

how may runs did you do?
Which run number is posted?

I'm having my Elise sc'd next weekend...VF Sg.2
I am hoping for 270 rwhp. (using a regular dyno, wheels on)

Did 3 runs. I posted the 3rd run. On the second run, the dyno tech asked me if I wanted to take it over 8K. After seeing it make 246hp @ 8k on the second run, I was happy and left well enough alone.
Would have probably been in the 260 range at 8500 :eek:

You have AF sheet? what's with the dip at 7200?

Congrats...one of the benefits of the IC is you can do a lot of runs and they will almost be on top of each other...I have seen this many times on the dyno myself.

When the summer comes you will be glad you have the IC.

I'm guessing your Elise was not stock based on that curve. What mods were on the car? No A/F measurement?

pretty much all the SC'ed cars have that. My car as that small dip

curious: If a shop is installing a sc and doing a clutch job, do they dyno the post sc-install results using the original clutch and then install the new clutch so as not to screw up the break-in period on a new clutch?

How does vf do it at their Gaithersburg, MD shop when dynoing a newly installed sc...do they use the old clutch to dyno before and after install so they don't potentially damage the new clutch?

-Yea, I asked the same question twice:huh:

you can't screw up a clutch on a dyno. You just do WOT pulls with clutch engaged. The break-in is to mate the wear surfaces during shifts, the only time a clutch wears. The key to clutch break in is to be gentle on the shifts; you can still use WOT when clutch is fully engaged.

Prior to the SC install, the car only had a de-snorkel and a Von Hep exhaust when the baseline dyno was done. No exhaust mods have been done after the SC install (still have the stock headers w/ the Von Hep).
looks like your car, when was NA, has more power on 2nd cam then a stock Elise. Looks like the exhaust certainly helped.
