The Elite Auto Sports dyno was in 4th gear. Though the Numbers are great, until they are able to get 5th and 6th gear runs in, the Numbers wont be considered accurate. In about 2 weeks i should dyno higher though :)

What all have you done to your car? Oh and btw we did get over 550 in 5th gear but the tuning runs were done on the dyno in 4th gear so you didnt have to run the car to 120 + mph

Thats great then. Your car should be the #1 when it comes to power.

Currently i have inake and exhaust. Simple
But the parts in my closet will go on my car as soon as i get the time. The car is going to make around 570-590whp and at race weight be somewhere in the 35xxlbs ballpark.

We did do one run in 5th and the numbers were the same. That was at a lower boost though. The number was relative to other 4th gear pulls. The problem with doing 6th gear pulls is the amount of stress it puts on the car. Doing a pull to 165mph like in the chart above is WAY over kill. I understand that you guys want a 1 to 1 ratio but 165mph pull 1 after another is a little much when you are tuning. Neither I or my tuner will tune that way. Plus you don't get an accurate account of what 165mph air flow would do to the intercooler. So it is my and my tuners opinion that 4th is better because they are shorter. Just to make the number stand the next time it is on the dyno we will do a 6th gear run for proof.

I owned a Dynojet for 6+ years with thousands of runs performed. While we pretty much always ran cars in whatever gear was 1:1, I would not call the HP figures inaccurate when/if running a car in a different gear then what would be 1:1.

The current dyno we use to tune our projects is a Dyno Dynamics AWD with load/eddie current. Just to verify information, we asked him(the tuner) today about HP numbers on his dyno in different gears. His reply was it doesn't make that much of a difference.

That's some collection of parts. Please let us all know when it makes the power and if possible let us all know details. Good luck.


Looks like good power, but still less then the 552whp he is asking about.

Will do. When everything is worked out ill post a thread... The N20 is only going to be temporary. Boost Coming soon :D (probably after next semesters midterms lol)

And ya its a N20 Dyno. The car made 330whp stock so i think higher numbers would be the result of a dyno change.

Things are starting to get interesting with the introduction of better forced induction options for the ISF. I am curious to see if there are any major weak links in the drivetrain when people start to drive 550+ whp ISFs in a "spirited" manner. Toyota products are typically build conservatively, so hopefully the drivetrain should hold up to the abuse fairly well...especially the transmission. I can't imagine that the 8spd is cheap to fix, or upgrade.

Dyno Dynamics is the way to go for tuning. I can't wait to see the numbers for your single turbo set up!

Well i put the money down to order the single turbo set up today. I'm sure it will take most of the winter to redo everything. If anyone is interested in my twin turbo set up im selling it for under half of what I paid for it. This car is sick fast with this kit making over 550 whp. I'm aslo going to be switching to e85 and all new exhaust.
