It’s cool to get a baseline before you start doing mods. Nice work!

Nice baseline. I was tempted to get one done before I did my Stage 1, but wasn't patient enough :lol:

Do we know the rough drive-train loss on these? I heard 15% before, but that would mean you're only making 197 at the crank. Which could be right for an aged engine, but I'd expect more.

Did you use the android Torque app for the other reading? I'd think that would be fairly accurate as well--provided all the weights were entered correctly.

Thanks for sharing!

Mustang dynos typically read low. Definitely lower than dynojet. In the end it's just a tool. Interested to see post tune delta.

Noice!! Tuning these cars apparently releases a beast from a tiny box, lol.

I just went with a BCB stage 3. Drivability is excellent. Car is still docile around 1000 to 2500 rpm, so cruising around town is no different to stock, except it seems to have more torque down low, so it drive's more like a small 6 cylinder.

We don't have MPG in Australia we do Litres per 100 klm.

Stock Highway 6 to 7 Litres per 100klm
Stage 3 Highway 5 to 7 Litres per 100klm

Stock City 8 to 10 Litres per 100klm
Stage 3 City 8 to 15 Litres per 100klm.

Keep in mind that the 15 litres per 100klm is maximum boost and me mashing the pedal to the floor. It's worse case scenario. Over all, fuel economy has improved a little, but is way out the window when you get stuck into it (which you'd expect with an extra 70hp)

How is driveability and mileage post tune?
I have a relatively aggressive Stage 1 tune on my 2.0T (265hp/275lb-ft) and driving around town I average about 21-22mpg. This is city driving, with some fast and some moderate acceleration, and a roof rack (I've noticed the roof rack lowers my average about 1 mpg even on slower city speeds).

As PeteyBoPetey said, the lower end below 2500 rpm or so feels a bit more 'tourqey' than stock, but the biggest difference is above that where the turbo really kicks in.
