Below is an image from a recent dyno'ing of my stock 2007 Lotus Exige S (black, in case you're wondering) on a DynoJet. Here were the conditions:

Location = Atlanta (Batlground Engineering)
Dyno = DynoJet 424x
Temp = 90F
Elevation = ~1000 ft
Correction = SAE
Smoothing = 0

We did 3 runs back-to-back with fans pointed at the radiator and over the engine (lid up). The runs were consistently 200whp, which surprised me as I was expecting heatsoak to take a toll.



The numbers are higher than I would have expected for a bone stock Exige S. If this is hitting stock numbers, that would imply about a 10% drivetrain loss.

other people have had similar high readings on the '07 Exige S. there were a few threads/posts about this when that car was first released.
