Nice! Time to get some photos of the car with the new exterior touches.
I will be working on this and updating/adding stuff, just figured it was time to start one.
The dyno numbers are just based off a software called Virtual Dyno which has been proven to be fairly accurate, I simply use the software as a tuning tool and compare component changes not just for the numbers. The Kia intake manifold made a noticeable improvement for the top end power level and torque across the RPM range. The second power chart showing the BHM tune and a stock tune is from November of 2012, I have yet to get another chart up for the latest component changes made. I have a couple more items that will be going on here soon and will also document that data, but I do expect to see even more mid-range and top end improvements with those specific items.
I have an extensive bit of information for this platform and specifically the 6g7X series engines which are being put to use, all of which is also being thoroughly documented. If you are curious more or want to follow along I will try to keep this up to date and share as much as I am willing, but you can also follow me on Facebook under "BlackHeart Motors"
Just a brief update since I have made more progress with some engine components. This past month I pulled the motor to do some maintenance, cleaning, and install a different set of camshafts to document this engine further. Below is a quick pull using Virtual Dyno after the cams were installed, blue line is a run from February of 2012 when the engine was mostly stock. As you can see there has been a major improvement with the cams, and I still need to dial in the tune more for the change.
The car pulls a lot stronger now and keeps pulling to rev limit whereas before you could feel the power dropping off a bit before hitting the rev limit. A lot more fun to drive now, fuel economy may get a little bump also. After the first fill up it came out to about 27mpg, heavy thrashing, city/highway driving, data logging...once the tune is dialed in I anticipate seeing anywhere from 30-32mpg highway (OEM was rated at 26 highway so that gives you an idea how much it has improved)
