    have you checked the scales of the graph?
    if you want the curve to cross at 5252rpm, it has to be the same scale, I would imagine

    The botton axis is rpm, and this matches, from 2k to just over 6k, with the side axis being lb/ft and bhp respectively. My graphs actually cross at around 4500 rpm.

    Probably means nothing, I am far from an expert on dyno graphs.

    Dunc,
    What I meant was, the numbers on the y axis should be identical (the unit being the same as the formula) to be able to compare.
    For example 200bhp and 200lb-ft should be on the same horizontal lign. if not they're not gonna cross at the right point

    Just to add: if you do what I said above the curves definitely have to cross at 5252rpm as when I asked AMD they confirmed that they only measure the torque then calculate the bhp with the formula you mentionned above. If not then there is something wrong with the RR

    agreed, had my car been in the pics, i would be asking for the plates to be removed at least.

    its standard practice.

    Steph, you are quite right - bit of a blonde moment I'm afraid - the curves do cross at 5252 rpm /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    anyway. just catching up. thanks for organising the day Rich, and to all those I met - a few interesting discussions!

    good to see my RS4 is putting out near enough standard power/torque. Time for a few mods I think - the Nova/Saxo boys are beginning to catch me up!

    Some pics:

    @Ryanc - Not sure what level of boost I'm running - I would guess it's the standard remap amount for a BAM.

    if it helps dunc my car lost 59bhp through the transmission roughly 25% of estimated fwhp.silvers3 you're definetly running 1.5+ bar,it's a shame amd couldn't plot this on with the graphs as it does give a good indication of whats happening.

    Just out of interest rich,whats holding your car back from making more torque and bhp.Are you just being conservative with the boost?

    Mechanical sympathy! Id rather change bits when i please rather than when they break. When ive done this, there will be a hike in power again.

    I think xvw is doing a report for us. As soon as this is done, I will submit it to Audi Driver Magazine who said they may do a feature in their mag...
