How to read DYNO graphs.
Please note that the dyno graphs displayed in this next section are figures based on POWER AT THE WHEELS. Engine manufactures will always quote their power figures AT THE ENGINE.
They will do this because power measured at the engine are 30 - 40 % MORE than the figures measured at the wheels. However, what YOU the customer really need to know is what your engine is actually delivering to the wheels AFTER all the drive train losses.
Therefore, the figures quoted by the manufacturer need to be reduced by up to 40% to show TRUE power. Keep this in mind when viewing any dyno sheet.
NS and NT Pajero with Chip It Performance Module.
One of the dyno sheets attached show the 3.2 NS Pajero in a comparision between us and Spider Chip. The Spider was squashed!
Not surprisingly, these vehicles produce a ton of low down torque and great mid-range improvement when Chipped with our specialised Performance Modules. The added feature of extra Turbo Boosting is of great significance so that extra air is made available to the assist in the combustion process and help keep the Exhaust Gas Temperatures down. Additionally, we also have Exhaust Gas Temperature Controlled Chips which protect your engine as you drive. No other diesel chip has these extra features! This means free extra power and torque can be unlocked without sacrificing your power-plant. Gone is the lag, and in comes the joy from driving the Pajero in its highened altered state.
NT Pajero DynoStandard power of 124 hp at the wheels peaks at 3700 RPMsWith the Chip It Performance Module installed peak power of 165hp is now coming in 700 RPMs lower in the rev range. Great for towing and overtaking.
(Standard power at 3000RPMs was only 98hp)
The torque curve is boarder and holds flat right across the rev range. Again, towing or overtaking is now better and safer.
Peak torque goes from 180 foot pounds to 290 foot pounds.
The Pajero is a lot nicer to drive all round and power is a plenty.
Incidently, as suspected, Mitsubishi has revamped the PDF (diesel particulate filter) in the NT. The sorry excuse of a particulate filtering system which was used in the NS has now been replaced by a much larger filter core. Also noticable is that the DPF does not have sensors before and after the core. Instead, it seems Mitsubishi are not looking so much for a blocked state via pressure sensors but initiate a “post burn injection” (PBI) at a certain number of engine hours or kms. (i.e. every 400kms).
This means that removing the core will not gain the benefit of added fuel economy like we see in the NS since the NS initiates a PBI when the filter is partly blocked. A partly blocked filter is determined via the sensors before and after the core. Partially blocked filters may command a PBI at 100 kms which means extra diesel is used to burn off the soot and “regenerate” the filter. If there is no filter, the sensors will convey a clean filter state and no PBI will occur, thus the fuel economy increase. Interestingly to note, Mitsubishi have completely removed the DPF in the Series 2 NT. Adding our DPF Eliminator (Race Pipe) will enhance economy and performance and must be used when vying for good performance otherwise the rear O2 sensor can overheat. We do package deals when a customer buys a Chip It Performance Module and Race pipe together. The Race Pipe cost is reduced by 30% and we throw in a FREE EGR Blanking Plate.
