    Longboarder's M3 w/ ESS-VT2 600 5 psi on 91 octane - 543 wheel STD

    Not bad for 5 psi on pump. Still thinking this dyno reads high:

    Hey Sticky. I'm gonna dyno tomorrow as well with ~ 95 octane...hoping to get to at least 550 on this particular dyno. I will also be hooking up a mechanical boost gauge as it's strange that I'm only getting 5.0 psi. EAS just installed an ESS VT2 600 today and it's making 6-7 psi tapping the same vaccum line as they did with mine.

    I will be doing a build thread soon.

    Odd, 180hp over stock with just 5 psi?

    I am looking forward to your build thread! Hopefully you find out why you were logging just 5psi. Click here to enlarge

    Why not just post your graphs here?

    5 psi but should be 7?

    'cause I'm lazy today...just lounging in my pool as it's like 90 deg. lol. Yeah I will make a thread. Boost is a mystery at only 5psi. EAS hooked up a mechanical boost gauge to verify.

    I did 5 pulls on Friday...the first two were done back-to-back, and then about 10 minutes between pulls thereafter. The 570 STD / 567 uncorrected run was the last pull of the morning and every pull got a bit better as the car adapted to the higher octane so who knows where it would have peaked. I can't even imagine with 100 octane and 1-2 more psi?!?!?!?!

    Well for whatever reason your attached graphs there just aren't displaying right.

    I took a vid of the dyno run with the mechanical boost gauge hooked up as well. Same thing...5psi peak at 8,300 RPM (it spikes at the end of the run with throttle closure)...but i will post that one up.

    I'm going to have Malek hook up his mechanical gauge on Tuesday for final verification. His gauge is calibrated perfectly and it's what he used to build/monitor his 300is.
