    I got a custum tune done on the Stang today at Dyno Tuned Performance in Chesapeake, VA.

    Old #'s (right after KB install 0n Sep 5th):
    392rwhp / 434rwtq

    New #'s (after oil change, new plugs, KB CAI, & dyno tune):
    420rwhp / 460rwtq

    I'm still very happy! :banana:

    (Once again, I could use an assist with posting the dyno sheet pic.)

    Oh yeah! Driveability is still the same but I can definitely feel the power increase once I get into it. She's still pretty smooth even though the tune is a little more aggressive.

    May be this is dumb question but I'm trying to learn here, how is the tune done? I know that it's done on a dyno, but did you have to re-burn your KB chip? If so, did you sent the chip back to KB for the re-burn? One more question, are you running the 9psi intercooled kit?

    No. The shop has the software and a chip burner. They start with a baseline program and then tweak the program by adding or subtracting fuel & timing (and I'm sure other things that I'm uneducated in). Then they throw the chip back in the car, dyno it, evaluate, and tweak again if need be.

    Nice. KB = :drool:

    I'm torn between getting a KB, and the T & J up comming single turbo kits. KB I'd get to keep my current exhaust that I absolutely love. In the meantime I'll just be jealous of everyone else. :(


    :D

    Oh OK, thanks for the quick reply and the info. I'm having my KB Kit installed this weekend. I only know of two dynos here in PR, but I'm not quite sure if they have the equipment/computer/knowledge to tweak my KB mono-chip. What options do you think I have to get the most Hp out of my KB kit? I guess my only option is to have the car dynoed and send the graphs to KB for a re-burn of my chip...is this about right?

    Heck, He'll smoke alot of cars with those numbers. I wouldn't want to race him for money....

    Great numbers. That torque is crazy on those KB's. I was at a dyno today and a viper with a KB made 750hp/950ft-lbs of torque...... Crazy
