Re-visit Dynamometer

There was a problem with the last power plot I did last year as the throttle body butterfly was not opening fully. This visit back to Sitech Racing was to validate the update to the throttle body linkage. Here is the plot from my visit in August 2013:

The standard engine produces 125bhp at the flywheel so no increase in power was observed in August. Since then I have fixed the butterfly versus pedal position.

You can clearly see the maximum power has increased by 43bhp to 155bhp @ 6700rpm a most agreeable result for the cost of a sift in pivot point in the throttle linkage.
