Hey all you cool cats and kittens the local dyno shop is running a COVID Special for baseline pulls. Curiosity got the best of me so I'm signed up for Monday (4/27) at 4pm.

What kind of numbers do you think she will put down? Car has 80,200 miles on the odometer as it sits and we will be using a Dynojet.

Engine / Trans Mods:
1 Forge Motorsports FMLOTRAD All Aluminum Radiator
2 Snorkel Delete
3 Green Filters 2319 Air Filter
4 BOE Torque 200 Tune (ECU)
5 GPan3 Baffled Oil Pan
6 ACT HDSS Clutch
7 MWR Lightweight Flywheel
8 InoKinetic Trans cables (Gear and Cross Gate shift cables)
9 InoKinetic Short Shift Kit
10 Larini 'Silenced' Race Testpipe
11 2bular 6x24 Exhaust

My guess is 176hp/139tq

1261947

I got 178 hp when I did mine. I don’t
Have a tune but have custom exhaust
And port matched intake.Get air temp
atmospheric pressure and humidity.
You will find information on line to
Compensate for these.My A/F was lean
So curious to see yours.You can put extra
pressure in tires to reduce friction.Go for
a good highway run to get transmission
hot and your oil temp up.If you have tires
With little tread that’s a small help.I had
Worn R888R. I will guess you get 179hp

All dynos read differently so unless the one above was done on the same dyno?

OP - have you done a baseline on the same dyno?

Thanks for the tips @hvymtlmcn I will also be running pretty worn R888Rs, Ill bump the PSI up a bit. I'll report back with temp/humidity and AFRs. Im curious to see where they land as well. What type of dyno did you use for your pulls?

Agreed, these numbers are just another data point not back to back comparison on the same dyno. This will also be my "baseline" I didn't get the chance to run a true baseline before I added the exhaust and tune. All for fun!

RESULTS ARE IN! Fun day on the dyno running baseline pulls on my Elise and a friends Honda Insight Lemons car.

We each did 3 runs on a Dynojet to establish a baseline.
Air Temp: 75F
Humidity: 46%

2005 Lotus Elise (NA)
Mileage: 80,400
Tire Pressure: 28psi cold

Engine mods:
  • Intake - Snorkel Delete and Green Filters 2319 Air Filter Tune
  • BOE Torque 200 Tune (ECU)
  • Exhaust - Oem exhaust manifold, Larini 'Silenced' Race Testpipe, and 2bular 6x24 Exhaust
1262287

1262288

1262289

Dyno Results:
Peak Power – 183hp/132tq
Average – 182hp/131tq


We ended up running 4 pulls because the wideband sensors fell off mid pull to record AFRs. Speaking of AFRs, any insight as to what they should be reading at the tailpipe? Mine were at ~13.5.

Youtube footage time stamps:
Lotus Pulls:
  • 1st pull – 1:38
  • Exhaust sounds – 3:14
  • 2nd pull – 3:48
  • 3rd pull – 4:46
Bob’s Insight Pulls:
  • 1st pull – 5:33
  • 2nd pull – 6:54
  • 3rd pull – 7:38
Victory Lotus Donuts! – 8:50



I don’t have all the details on Bob’s car, but it’s the most expensive Lemons car ever and the engine is stock. He ended up making 60hp/60tq. It’s a baseline, I see a Kswap in its future.

Check out the end of the youtube video and subscribe for more fun. I was worth spending my R888R's for this shot!

Thanks for posting this. Looks like David was about right on his guesstimate of what you would throw down. Great Job!

Very similar numbers. Different day and different dyno, here are my results:
Peak Power – 183hp/132tq
Average – 182hp/131tq
Well if I match change my units from SAE to STD with smoothing 5 this is what I have. Note the cam changeover since this was 2006 and I didn't have the luxury of BOE's Torque 200 tune ;)

Pretty damn close!

Stock elise will pull ~170whp on a dynojet (STD)

Usually it's 167-170. 167 is probably with SAE

So 182whp is pretty good and as advertised. Around 203 hp.
