On The Dyno

Hands down, our two-day dyno extravaganza at Extreme Automotive was one of the most-exciting power sessions we have ever had with Project T-top Coupe.

We evaluated the coupe on Extreme's Dynapak Evolution 4000 chassis dyno using two intercooled superchargers (Paxton's Novi 2000 and all-new Novi 2500) in a back-to-back comparison test to see how the two Novis will affect the same engine. Of course, we also were on a mission to make 1,000 hp at the project Pony's rear wheels.

The data presented here, in graph and numerical chart form, detail all of the results from our extensive testing. While in the chart we begin with the inclusion of results from previous tests we made with a non-intercooled Novi 2000 (2), the difference between the two intercooled Novis (2000 II and 2500) is the data that is published.

While our rear-wheel-goal was not reached, it's estimated the coupe's new Novi 2500 combination is producing approximately 1,106 hp at the flywheel. We're sure you want to see that type of number at the feet--as do we--so our plan is to keep plugging away with this project until we finally make it to the four-digit promised land, a land we never thought to achieve when this project started back in 2006.
