Supercharger Dyno'd - 2003 Acura CLS 6speed

Wednesday, Feb. 18th, I got my 2003 CLS 6speed back from Acura of Pleasanton with the CompTech S/C installed. On Friday of same week, I made a trip to CompTech to have them inspect the installation of the S/C and do a dyno.


Here's what's installed:
  • CT Intake and S/C (Boost: 3.6 PSI Max)
  • CT Headers
  • CT B-pipe
  • CT Axle-back exhaust
  • CT Quiet Tips (they were removed after the first two dyno runs and will remain that way unless the exhaust noise starts bugging me)

Results:[list=1][*]Feb. 20th dyno with the S/C installed and without quiet tips: 305 WHP, 262 FT-LBS TQ[*]Feb. 20th dyno with the S/C installed and with quiet tips: 296 WHP, 256 FT-LBS TQ[*]Original dyno back in October 2003 without the S/C but with I/H/BP/E: 236 WHP, 201 FT-LBS TQ[/list=1]



I haven't had much road time yet in the car with the S/C installed, so I don't have much to report on yet except to say... I can't believe how much torque and power is available at just about any RPM. It's now a whole different driving experience.

Acura of Pleasanton has done all my mods up to this point and so far they have done excellent work.

Nice #s, you have got to take it to the track and see what kind of 1/4 mile times you can put down. Good luck on traction. I love the way the s/c makes power all the way to the rev limiter. It makes you wonder what kind of #s you could put down with another 500 rpms!!!

Nice mods dude!!! I mean the power you put down to the ground is just awesome!!! Keep it up and keep it clean! Anyway, just a question, Acura still honor your warranty since you have them install your aftermarket parts? Do you mind if I ask you how much these things run you when you buy them at the dealer? Also, how much do they charge you for installation? It would just be great having a FI car, put down great HP/TQ numbers, push the car real hard, and still have warranty... Lol! Congratulations man!!!

Traction is an issue for sure... but I'm not much into drag strip racing... more of a roadracer... but then again... if I'm at a light and somebody pulls up next to me...

The service department said if there is an engine failure related to crank shaft, connecting rods or pistons and there is evidence of excessive wear, then there may be a problem with the warranty. Otherwise, everything should be covered. I was basically told not to worry too. They said I would only have to worry if there was strong evidence that the car was abused - meaning that if an ECU dump show redline at 150 MPH or shifting into the wrong gear at high speed.

As for prices, the parts dept. sold me most of the stuff at cost. In some cases, the installed price with tax was less than what was listed on CompTech's website.

Before the S/C, the car was lots of fun to drive. But now; it's a whole new driving experience. What's really amasing, is how much power is available at just about any RPM and in any gear. Taken into account losses to the wheels, I'm guessing that the crank HP must be around 370.

Nice, but 3.6psi? are you serious?
Up it to atleast 7, I'm pretty sure Comptech makes the high boost pulley for your ride, cause some av6ers are using it!

Then you'll be ready for the competition!

Na, I'd rather keep it as it is for the sake of engine longevity and reliability. I've got plenty of HP for my needs. I'm more of a road racer, not a drag stripper. Although, I do enjoy an occasional quick express way straight line race.

I guess to each their own, still not bad at all for the small amount of boost its pushing, I'm guessing it can take a few more pounds reliably if tuned correctly.

Get us some timeslips and vids of it on the road!
