Eurocharged Dyno-tune Day - Atlanta *results*
I had posted the following to the original "ecu tuning feeler" thread, but
since you opened this thread specifically for the results posts, I thought
I'd place it here as well...
Just got back from the dyno tuning session with Eurocharged! Wow, what
a morning. Got to see some great cars and meet some fantastic people. A
special high-five to Tony and Jerry. Nicer guys I've not met. And both
seem to have a lot of knowledge of the 3.2 Liter S/C Merceded motor. Also
met Jason from Buckhead Imports (local Eurocharged affiliate), another fine
man, whom I may be doing some business with in the near future. And,
of course a big thanks to 32Krazy for getting this together.
Anyway, it was cold, cold this morning (good for the cars, bad for the
shivering folks). But the excitement was infectious and soon had everyone
a little bit warmer. Everything went smoothly, and cars were moving on
and off the dyno in about an hours time. Mine took just a little longer, as
the ECU crashed during tuning, and had to be removed to the bench for
a re-flash. Then, back in the car, adjust the tune, and wow! What a
So, here are my numbers...
Pre-tune: 299.9 whp
Post-tune: 331.7 whp
So, basically a 31 whp and 43 ft/lbs. increase over just adding
the C3 pulley and SL55 intake. I was actually making just a little more
HP and Torque than the C32 that was on the dyno ahead of me. Guess
I'll need to invest in rubber stock. Anyone know a good rubber tree
plantation for sale?
Thank you ZAHANAMA, Eurocharged and Krazy House Kustoms...
I will admit (and I am sure most of you know...) I have been super frustrated with my current LET/Eurocharged "tune", but I will say that Matt/Jerry/Tony from Eurocharged and Brandon from Krazy House Kustoms are doing everything they can in order for this situation to be right. We arrived last night at Krazy House Kustoms around 7:15pm (after hours!) and strapped my car down and did some dyno pulls to try and dial it in. Long story short, the tune I currently had was a mess. A/F was rich (except at the top) and the timing was all over the map. I still managed a decent 340hp and 377tq to the wheels on a Mustang Dyno.....Anyway, I was still going way lean at the top of 3rd and 4th. Few tweaked tunes later we were able to get a decent A/F throughout the RPM band except it kept leaning out at the top still. Hmmmmm, at this point we didn't think my BAP was working so......We put a fuel pressure gauge on the fuel rail to see what the fuel pressure was doing at that point. Low and behold, soon as the car reached the top of 3rd, the needle "fluttered". What that means, I am not sure as it still did have what looked like, decent fuel pressure. The owner of the shop, Brandon (who was a super nice guy) said it is possible I was running out of injector, but more a fuel pump issue. Not sure....
I have decided to go the SL55 fuel pump route and be done with it. After all, my current pump does have 52k miles on it so it wouldn't hurt to change it.....I am praying this solves the lean conditions on top. The car has more in it and the current tune definitely needs to be tweaked as I am running higher octane and meth. We should see some nice numbers once we can get the lean condition to subside, add a bit of timing etc.....
I just felt it was necessary to thank all of these people that are going out of their way to help me out. Thanks guy! We are not there, but we will get this right eventually
Ok guys, I just got in and it was a great day. I am glad I made the drive down and enjoyed meeting all of you.Jerry, Tony, Jason and all of the support group were excellent.I enjoyed watching each of you get the results of your tunes. I think everyone left with big grins on their faces
After you all left, they let that beautiful SL 55 AMG cool fo 20 minutes and it posted 498 whp on the last pull. Then the M3 made 381 whp on it's pull.
So, after watching all of you all day long........I just had to find out what #'s my car would make. Drum roll please:
Before: 351.1 whp 336.1 torque
After: 364.0 whp 357.1 torque
Thanks again everyone for a great day!

First I want to thank Everyone at Eurocharged! I'm very satisfied with the quality of work I received and the dedication of Tony to insure that I had the best tune(s). My roadster is now officially a monster (without the NOS) They took the time to create two different files for my computer and after 1/2 a tank of gas and 2 1/2 10# bottles of NOS later all I have to do is send the computer back to have it partitioned they will be able to load both files without having to retune on a Dyno.
It was great meeting everyone at the shop Saturday. Matt I have a new friend!
It's 104F and 80% humidity in New Orleans so I think I'll just go back to bed and get some rest. I got back to New Orleans around 6AM this morning.
