VF installed their stage 2 supercharger package on my 2006 Elise.
I have no substantive complaints, neither does the car presumably.:rolleyes:
The power is always there, no matter what gear.
The tune is so good that more power is to be made beyond 8500,
but that is someone else's odyssey.

The '06 Elise went from essentially stock to 292whp and 186wtq.

Drivetrain/exhaust configuration:
-fidanza flywheel
-fidanza 3.2 kevlar clutch
-oem header
-larini sport cat (2.5" pipe)
-larini 8" can (2.5" throughout)
-walbro 255 (is it lpm or gpm?)
-manly's motor mounts (mandatory really unless you like being jostled)

Good dyno Robert. It's lph for liters per hour... THey have two versions of that pump. One is the HP for high pressure and the other standard. Not sure which one VF uses. I presume it's the HP...

Best,

Phil

where's the before dyno?
VF didn't have time I guess.

Before the sc I had a Reverie intake, larini exhaust and sport cat.
(miss the reverie and the sound of an exhaust)
The sc wine above 4000 rpm's drowns it out.

Has anyone put sound deadener on their firewall or directly over the sc/pipes/etc.

292 whp is roughly 340 at the flywheel.

I can't see how stock engine internals are going to handle that type of power for long. From what I've read 300 at the flywheel is deemed to be the safe figure for stock internals?

The Lotus GT3 Cadena team couldn't stop the engine from going bang and they were shooting for 350 at the flywheel. The Cadena team ended up switching to a DB9R for the rest of the season.

300rwhp is the limit not bhp.

the cadena team runs a much more aggressive tune too and is considerably harder on the car.


There isn't much difference between the walboro 255HP vs 255 at the kinds of flow and fuel pressures we're running on the cars, unless you're just increasing the pressure at the injectors to accomodate for poor ecu control, you'll never see that sort of fuel pressure.

The dyno graph was produced using dynapack type dynamometers, so the flywheel numbers would be much lower than 340.

yes I know...I rarely need to go beyond 6500 for a good time now.

Before, as na, I would routinely wring her out past 8000.
Sorta miss those days...ummmmm rotfl
