Car made 318 at 6200 non-locked with the auto..is that about right?
Seems low, and at 6200 with a n-91. Did you not want to take rpm any higher

You should lock it, it usually shows a more accurate number and usually higher on a Dynojet .. I used to own one.

91 LX Hatchback, 3.73 gears, heavily worked over 65mm TB, 14* timing, CAI, ported upper/lower (grinding now), 3" Flows dumped, carpet mod and removed all deadener. 3000 stall edge, shift kit and H/C/I coming soon...

Post the dyno graph, thats the only way to tell... as for the trans, i thought you said it was a switched lockup? That usually means you flip a switch to lock it...

It's switched over drive but i can tell you from the dyno graph it didn't want to stop pulling..I know from experience it's the super turbo mufflers holding me back ! But next week sometime I'm going to put a pair of magnflow's on it(straight through)

Yes, please post after numbers with no tuning changes with the new muffs! I am torn between the two myself!

AOD cars with non-lockup converters won't show as much on a dyno. I think your numbers look pretty good. Take it to the track to see how it does, especially in the mph department. If your after big dyno numbers, you'll need to switch to a 5-speed.

My car made 339 rwhp at 6,000 rpm and 325 rwhp at 5,000 rpm. That's when I had TW 170 heads and Systemax intake. Same transmission set up as you except my stall was 4,000. This combo ran consistent 11.4-11.5's at 115-116 mph with a best of 11.37 at 117.

It's a lockup, just not electric so i can't lock it up in 3rd gear and Was those track number with the same weight in your signature?

Yes, everything was the same as my current signature except back then I had TW 170 heads, Systemax intake, 2.5" exhaust, and Jay Allen custom cam for that combo.

With the assumption that your tires and the track allow you to hook well off the line, I expect you would be close to my numbers. You should be well into the 11's and I expect you should run at least 11.6's at 114-115 mph. Of course that also depends on the weather conditions. I see around 1 tenth difference in ET per 10-15 degrees of outside temperature.

Regardless, don't worry about your actual dyno numbers. They're just a byproduct of having your car tuned on a dyno. Run it at the track and that will tell you how your combo is doing. The best use for the dyno numbers is to see how much power you gain (or possibly lose) as you do upgrades in the future. The key to that is to go to the same dyno each time.

AOD's are locked up in 3rd unless you have a non-locking converter and input shaft.
