I have a 2006 S40 T5 AWD (stock 218hp) and have added a K&N Cold Air Intake, Heico Sport Exhaust, and a Rica ECU tune. How many horsepower do I have now? Also, if I add a downpipe what will that give me? Thanks!

Re: Horsepower Question (toga989)

I don't know, to be honest all I could say is dyno it and find out, and when you do let me know since I have basically the same setup, and plan on getting that tune as well... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Horsepower Question (carreragt7)

I would say ~248 now maybe 255 with down pipe, but you really need a dyno so throw down some cash and get a run done and then post it!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Horsepower Question (slrising)

Realistically, to the wheels? Maybe 10-15 extra. The downpipe will come to life with a tune.

240 HP Maybe On a Good Cool Day , with Down Pipe Total<br>265 Hp with Proper ECU - Up Date .<p>It's all about the Torque which will be way up there . <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Horsepower Question (toga989)

I have a K&N intake, ATP intercooler, and 3inch downpipe. I had the CAT still on the car when did a dyno. The stock s40 T5 is about 168 to the wheel. With my mods I was at 210 to the wheel. You could probably add 25 to 45 with a tune. Depends on which company and what gas you run.

Re: Horsepower Question (toga989)

I also have the intake, an Evolve exhaust and RICA tune (for downpipe). I also have an ATP downpipe, no cat, Bell intercooler, and I dyno'd on a 22 degree F day with tons of air flowing through the garage. I put down 288 max whp and 303 ft*lb torque max. 11-12psi from about 3800rpm to red line (it held 11+ the entire way).<p>Here's my spreadsheet smoothing:<br><IMG SRC="http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/cc5/mattdocs40/DynoT5.png" BORDER="0"><p>And the raw data with added lines/data points<br><IMG SRC="http://i212.photobucket.com/albums/cc5/mattdocs40/DynorunDec08edited-1.png" BORDER="0">

Re: Horsepower Question (mattdoc)

Starting to think that the Head Really Needs some Larger Exhaust Valves<p>or a Good Porting and a 4 Grind on the Valve .<p>The Euro-RS , I Believe also has Better Cams .<p>Looks Like that Bell is Helping Out.<p>Speaking of InterCoolers , I Wonder How all the Evolve Guys are Running?

Re: Horsepower Question (mattdoc)

288 (horsepower) to the wheels... just with bolt-ons..... That is very impressive... Nice job <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: Horsepower Question (mattdoc)

Wow those are some great numbers. The only problem I've run into is that I have an AWD, so it's very hard to find a downpipe that will fit. Do you have suggestions? Also, is the Bell intercooler actually worth the money?<br>

Re: Horsepower Question (toga989)

Phuz is in the works for making an AWD S40 downpipe so hopefully it will be a good, viable option. Probably similarly priced to his S60R ones...

What do you need to have them make a custom tune again

Re: Horsepower Question (kpsingh0)

I thought stage 3 was meant for a turbo upgrade ?<p>Also does having the cat really cause a huge difference ?

Without a cat, the exhaust sounds more poppy and burbly. I love it. <p>For a custom tune, I think you need a log of rpm, hp, tq, boost, a/f, and speed. Intake air temp wouldn't hurt but probably isn't necessary.

Re: (mattdoc)

My ONLY concern about removing cat would be emissions in NY state anyone know it will cause it to fail ?

Re: (jdsr917)

Without being familiar with NY emissions, I can 99.9% guarantee you will fail without a cat. Bolt it on for your testing, then take it off until you have to test again.

Re: (jdsr917)

It more than likely wont pass. Your HC and CO would fail for sure... i actually managed to pass an emmissions test at idle with my turbo integra lol. However bombed at the low RPM rev, shows that with the right tune it can be clean but still wont pass state law.
