View Full Version : DYNOED the yellow st215 swapped celica!!!

04-21-2010, 11:26 PM
had the yellow celica dynoed the other day. im impressed with the numbers. these runs were on a stock st215 engine. there is still some flaws in the engine itself such as vacuum leaks from manifold to break booster, slight crack in a 90 degree bend silicon coupler, completely shot motor mounts (speedsource mounts are coming in YAY!!!), and restrictive 2.5" exhaust to 2.25" axleback muffler. not to mention full interior, full size spare tire, and subs in the trunk. enjoy...

Peak HP:
- stock boost(8psi) run#1 198.4 hp @5850 rpm
- boost @ 10psi run#2 221.2 hp @6000 rpm
- boost @ 12psi run#3 239.8 hp @5950 rpm
Peak Torque:
- run#1 185 ft/lb @ 4500 rpm
- run#2 230 ft/lb @ 5000 rpm
- run#3 241 ft/lb @ 4250 rpm
Type of Dyno: 2WD
Brand of Dyno: DYNOmite
Engine Displacement: stock 2.0 liter
Engine Compression: stock 9.0:1 *CALDINA ST215 3SGTE*
Camshafts: stock
Turbo: stock ct20b - ct15b (which ever you want to call it)
Turbo Pressure: 8psi, 10psi, 12 psi

Nice numbers!

Are you running a boost controller? I thought the stock boost levels on the 215 were just shy of 20psi?

04-22-2010, 12:11 AM
i believe so, but i remember reading somewhere that boost levels on the st215 were vsv dependent. also, something about the speedsensor being hooked up and working with the vsv. my speed sensor is not hooked up because my st184 had the cable driven speedo. i do believe so because even running at 12 psi and spiking at times to 15 psi with the old manual boost controller, the engine has never hit fuel cut before. at 12 psi, im making 239 to the wheels, then at 15 psi i should be putting close to 260 to the wheels. it seems to jump about 10 hp for ever psi i turn up. hows the swap coming along? cant wait to see it running man. the st162 would be so much lighter than the st184, so the car should be pretty fast.. any updates?

I'm getting close..very f*ing close.

I just gave my wife a shopping list of my items I need still so we can work on buying them. I took the week off for the dragon I was supposed to goto, and I'll take that week to install the beast in Jasmine.

I'm having some issues with vacuum routing & shit, but hopefully I get that squared away soon (I hope..) I need to figure out where to connect small things (charcoal canister, etc). But all in all, once the engine is in the biggest task is over and it's just small stuff from there (intercooler, fuel pump, axles, radiator).

04-22-2010, 12:35 AM
koo... i'm not to sure of how the charcoal canister is hooked up, but i just hooked it up to a vacuum port on the manifold. if im correct, there should be a vsv type thing in between those vacuum lines. i guess it is turned on by the ecu itself. plus, i answered alot of your questions in your other post bout tachometer, cel lights, and speedo.

Yes you did, thanks! I may have some vacuum routing questions, I can't seem to follow the EPC diagrams for a few parts.

Thanks for your help!

Nice! Getting some great HP/psi there. Looks like the 215 motor is pretty potent.

Never heard of a DYNOmite before, any thoughts on it?

the DYNOmite seems to be really accurate. the only thing i didnt like about it is that the car sat at an incline. the place i had it dynoed at was a honda specialist place. i was there with my bro in law getting his turbo'd 97 integra tuned. i asked about the dyno'ing and they only charged 50 bucks for three runs. i was like, what the heck man. heres there website http://www.importautopros.com/iap2/

Nice numbers!

Do you have any wideband AFR values with these runs?

thanks, no i don't have afr values because when import auto pro only dynoed it, they just slapped it onto the dyno. they made no adjustments to the car. plus, they didn't see the point of it because i had a narrowband gauge in the car. i should of asked them to use their wideband at the tailpipe, but im a noob at dyno's lolz...

also, when driving the car and hitting boost on the highways, it dips into the 10's and 11's. so im guessing it should of been somewhere around there.
