05 Sportivo Dyno Run


emc

Recommended Posts

I took my Corolla Sportivo 2005 (all stock) on a dyno last month.

Manual says the power output is 141kW @ 7800 (at the flywheel of the 1.8L VVTL-i)

It got 120kW @ 7250 in 5th gear at the wheels. The bloke testing it didn't go to 7800, even though I had said to. I'm yet to receive the papers with the graphs, but I'm not sure I'll ever get them. The power is great for such a small engine without using any modifications (intake, turbo, whatever). No idea what the torque is, sorry.

The speed got to 200km/h in 5th, so in 6th I have no doubt it'd reach 225-230. Note this has no wind resistance, so on a track it'd only get to 200 or so, depending on wind speed/direction etc.

A high quality video was recorded too, but I haven't got that yet (will soon).

Here's a few dodgy photos in the meantime, one of the graph output :)

120kw at the wheels stock? you gotta be kidding me. Where did you get your car Dyno'd at? Maybe we should all go there.

A comparison to my reading. Also an 05 sportivo stock got 106.9kw at the front wheels

different dyno's different results.. shouldn't he be doing it in 4th gear anyway?

you got that right there all dynos i have ever been to have only been in 4th gear and its all about the dynos some read higher then others and some read lower also with different weather temps air temps aswell but in the end no point being a dyno queen i say =P but good to have a result none the less

He went to 5th because 4th 'cut out' or something. I've never encountered it cutting out except for when the engine was cold and you crazily go over 6200rpm - and the engine was warm before the run. I asked why he didn't go into 6th (never been to a dyno :P )and he said the power output would be pretty much the same. Shame he didn't go to 7800 though. The dyno was some place in Seaford, Victoria.

Have a look at the graph picture to see the massive effect the lift has (at around 170km/h)!

You're not supposed to use 6th gear because it's an overdrive gear. To achieve the most accurate dyno result you use the gear which has the cloest gear ratio to 1:1.

Nice result though :)

Sportivo 6 spds dont have a 1:1 ratio from memory

DRIVETRAIN - TOYOTA COROLLA SPORTIVO 4D Hatchback - 6 man

Driven Wheels Front

Transmission description Six speed manual

- Transmission code C64

Gear Ratios

- 1st 3.166:1

- 2nd Gear 2.050:1

- 3rd Gear 1.481:1

- 4th Gear 1.166:1

- 5th Gear 0.916:1

- 6th Gear 0.815:1

- Reverse Gear 3.250:1

The dyno should be run on the gear ratio that is closest to 1 which makes the 5th gear on sportivo.

In doing that, it actually will give it a lower KW reading than in 4th (supposingly).

But every dyno is different and yes, open to manipulation. So ..... whatever ...

I got some more info from the place and it turns out I got it wrong. The graph shows horsepower, not kilowatts. Thus the power at the wheels is only about 90kW or so, rather than 120. Seems to make a bit more sense though :)

hmmmmm even though as stated dyno readings will vary this sounds like a bit 2 much of a variance on the low side ...... last 3 cars that read in the low 90's all had issues ..... 1 needed the ECU reset, 1 needed a new ECU and 1 needed a new MAF.

I'd suggest clean the MAF, reset the ECU & run it hard during the learning period and go back for a 2nd round

that sounds a tad low... but the best dyno to use is the 1/4 mile dyno ;) The MPH doesn't lie...

:o :o :o :o :o JASE ..... thats blasphemy ..... U mean people would actually have to drive their cars to prove how good they are ...... OMFG :blink: :blink: :blink: u cant ask ppl to do that ...... surely a tool not fit for the purpose its being used for is a FAR better way [/end sarcasm]
