This section is intended to give you a some information / feedback related to reported Dyno results. One has to keep in mind that test results are effected by a number of factors, and that results will vary from Dyno to Dyno. What is most usefull and meaningfull, are results taken on the same Dyno - on the same day using the same test procedures.

Subject:-all-  Dyno results

I recently mentioned that our club (Nissan Datsun Sports Owners
Club in Melbourne, Australia) held a Dyno Day.
For those interested, the results are below.

Prince Skyline GT    Standard           45   60       59     78

Unfortunately, the age of the vehicles was not recorded. 
However, both 300ZX's are the latest body style ie 90+.

To get the engine figures, I have added 30% to the rear wheel
measurements to allow for driveline losses.  The dyno owner gave
me this figure as the one to use for his dyno, based on his
experiences with engines measured on an engine dyno and then on
his chassis dyno.

The 300ZX owner was disappointed with his results, actually having
lost some 25 horsepower from stock.  The opinion was that the chip
was not suitable for the intake and exhaust changes he had made.

The Prince owner was also disappointed but, after correcting his cam
timing, he came back and recorded 11 more rear wheel kilowatts.

The 300ZXTT has what I would call a Stage 1 motor (changed 
air filter, chip and boost control).  The 408hp GTR is also "Stage 1"
but with changed cam timing.  Interestingly, the 375hp GTR is more
like a "Stage 2", also having bigger turbos and an extra injector.
Needless to say, the owner is now investigating his cam timing.
