went to the Sydney MX5 hang MX5 mania today. Then decided to chuck the MX5 on the dyno.......expecting 65RW Kw......
to my astonishment.......76 RwKw. :shock: Which i thought was a bit eager but that how it is. All these years i thought i had a pretty stock standrad engine. With a few minor performance mods.
very ineresting part was......they ran it without the fan infront of the car. a massive 51Kw :lol: . then they stuck the fan in front. its a pretty powerfull fan too...76kw with what i thought was 189Nm of tourque....the mind boggles.

Now i understand all the riff raff about befoer & after, different day, balh blah blah. but thats just what it is. but i did question the higher read out which i personally a little too high. they recon its pretty acurate. I didnt have the cash to go elsewhere & get it cross referenced.

In my book MX5 mania do know what they are doing so until the next Dyno club day where i can do some serious comparing .....its 76rwKw.
And i'll just take thier word for it.

So what you're saying is that if you could find a way of bolting the fan to the front of your car you would have a permanent 25rwkw gain? :D Electric turbocharging taken to the extreme?
