Dyno'd the car today and everything ran smooth and power was smooth till about 5500rpms then it flat lines.
Same thing happened on my hx35 setup last year, and now with the hx40 so I know I have a restriction somewhere. Only thing I can think of is the muffler causing back pressure, 02 housing, Cyclone mani, or exhaust manifold but should'nt be the last two. Both setups I hit this "400HP" Wall, something is restricting me. Click on my signature for full spec.
What am I missing here? Has to be something small or stupid I'm over looking. I'll attach my log from the dyno with the dyno run.
Run #1 was from today. HX40 (35PSI & 19*)
Run #2 was last year. HX35.
*Had to snippet the dyno sheet, file too large but shows the HP flat line well.
Dropped the DP and pulled the gasket, did a pull on the same road and all variables the same and HP jumped and gradually climbs as it should and TQ flatlines vs tapering down now. Also increase air flow by 15LBS/min, yes I know its off but its a base line for reference.
So I know its in the exhaust, now to test without the muffler.
