Believe nothing you hear and half of what you see.
Had to do the same with mine.
Yeah the excel thing was a rough thing to try and calculate some kind of torque number. It’s not perfect by any means but maybe gives some hint to what the torque might beyour PowerLogger file shows the run starting at 5100, like you said. The Excel data shows peak power and torque around 3800, so something doesn't jive.
what you're calling converter "capability" is misunderstood in my opinion (any additional (actual) info is invited from the peanut gallery). When the RPMs are not rising at WOT, the converter is using its stator to multiply torque, its not an inefficient mode of operating (or your MPH wouldnt climb like it does). Once the stator is "done" the sprag uncouples and you are left with whatever efficiency (actual 'slip') and the RPM's climb. The trick is to match this behavior with your power level and power band.
When did you lock it?Not sure if you can look at the log, but I’m thinking I’m about maxxed out on my converters capability. It flashes right to 5100 rpm and holds till the wheels catch up, then it takes a second or two to get to 5600 and done. I’m THINKING I’m overpowering the converter, but what say you?
I hope it's not the real curve
It’s rough. If you look at the Rpm’s. It was simple math to calculate like the dyno software normally would.I hope it's not the real curve
The lays overs way to early
It peaks up early and nice and loses power all through the rpm
Torque takes massive dive as well
70,000 to my knowledge. But it could be 170,000… Pedals and condition of the car say 70,000.Both my cars are identical to yours, 1 qt. between changes, excepting any ring ridge, checked that when I did the head gasket on the GN.
Been that way for 100K miles too, a quart of oil is cheap at walmartsky. My cars also leak a bit, heard that's a rare problem with these cars.
Well you seem to like taking them apart so go for it, with the heads and roller cam. you probably should keep the A/F back to the "insane" levels under 11.
Otherwise you could just drive it for another 100K.....
Nice shiny pistons and I will go out on a limb and say you won't be blowing it up any time soon, your wallet? oh yeah!
Any idea how many miles are on the motor?
