Dynod my bro's BMW 1997 e39

so the car is 15 yrs old, 240k km.. has precisely 0 issues,and it costed 4000$,( it was grey when he got it,it also looked like crap, and the car wasnt even running since the clutch was non existent, so this car was a gamble, we had no ideea what was wrong with it until after we bought it)

its supposed to have 282hp and it got clocked at 303hp on the dyno, with no mods to the engine. If thats not a good example of German engineering, idk what is.

Fixed that for you. Is that Miller's dyno?

i did a lot of research before going to the dyno, and this one is the best vancouver has, unless you have a better one. The car also has the exact same 0-60 time as factory spec, these cars are well known for going over 300hp all over the world, so i wouldnt be too surprized.Thanks for the helpful addition though

definitely not Miller's dyno.

Not sure what type of dyno this is, but Miller has a mustang dyno. A car like this will probably do somewhere around 260rwhp (give or take) if its in healthy shape.

You will have 300hp crank out of this motor with some software or bolt ons, maybe the drivetrain loss is already counted for in the claimed HP.

Actually... as a guy who has had three race cars, two of which had extensive custom dyno tuning done, I can tell you that there is no actually useful research that would help you determine which dyno is the best. Most race shops across the country would agree that there are positives and negatives to each type.

It is simply not industry standard to estimate flywheel hp for one good reason... it's impossible to measure flywheel hp without removing the engine from the car. The only way you can get to flywheel hp from measuring at the wheels is simply to estimate the percentage of driveline loss. By incorrectly estimating this as too low of a number, you end up with too high of a flywheel hp number which is precisely what happens at Miller.

If you were for real, you'd know that wheel hp is the only halfway reliable and repeatable number and even that is not an absolute thing since there are other adjustables that can affect those numbers.

yeah it looks great, i came up with the ideea for the fake exhaust since they estimated him 2,000$ for a real one, with exactly 0 performence difference besides an extra 50lb of tubes under the car haha.

maybe you should lift the original exhaust so its not that visible under the car.. you can still kind of see it.
