Agreed, I want to see two bone stock Si's go at it on a dyno, independant of any Enthusiast sites. (TOV)When we dyno'd a bone stock 07 FA5, it made 182 whp and 134 lbs/ft of torque. This was on a Dynojet chassis dynamometer. I'm curious to see what a stock FB6 would make.
While I agree that the added torque would be nice for daily driving, it would not be useful in a race. (aside from the launch)I agree. :eusa_clap:
The EP3 was a total POS... this is hardly that. Don't get what's with all the 9th gen Si haters? :banghead:That torque increase doesn't make up for the lack of dual cam vtec and loss of 1000 rpm. This is the ep3 rev. 2
The dyno he used was one that you take off the wheels and connect directly to the hub. That's why the 8th's plot seems a little on the high side. So that would mean the 9th's are a bit higher as well. He mentions it, and that there is a 6-7% numerical increase on the plot. I don't fully agree with this method (I don't deny it either) because of this. It is accurately close but am still hoping for a true(?) dyno testing on the rollers.Yeah I know cus the con the dyno is most likely moded and that's why it made 197 whp. But they dont make that much stock
Yeah by around 50 pounds. Lol. That may help with drag, but the 8ths ability to rev 1000 rpm's higher means it will eventually speed up faster than the 9th, considering all things equal. It's hard to say who takes the cake, but what I can say is: it would be a close match. End performance is relatively the same between the two cars, it just might end up being a generation long stalemate.Isn't the 9th lighter than the 8th? That would easily turn the tables in favor of the 9th in a drag
the 2012 Si sprints to 60 mph in 6.5 seconds and runs the quarter mile in 15 seconds flat, two-tenths faster than its predecessor.
