What to look for on a dyno graph?



  Clio 172 mk2
Hey guys, pick my car up on Sunday now not yesterday as I hoped I would be :( first thing I'm going to get done is a dyno reading. Now I know all dyno results will vary but what results should I be looking for from a 172 mk2 with no mods? It has done 75k but I'm hoping I could still reach the 160bhp Mark with some decent torque, what you guys think it should reach if it's healthy?

what do you mean not as hoped for ?

these aren't 700hp F1 cars .. they are 2 litre n/a'd french girls cars which make about 160-165 at the fly normally, if standard.

if it's really slow, perhaps the cambelt has been done recently ? if so, who by ? was it timed properly with the right tools ?!

You need glasses mate, He said he's picking his car up on Sunday and not yesterday as he'd hoped!.

The rolling road is good for other things such as how well the car is running ie fuel air ratios etc so ask the operator as much daft questions as you can don't just get hung up on the power readings.
