Here is the full version of #DarkMatterPikachu on the dyno. If you want to skip to the good part, here's the video.

Also thanks to Kevin Frische and Nate Mailhot.

As you can see, things didn't quite go as planned. It seems to be the way with this engine. It fought us at every turn it seems. However, at the end of the day, this is one heck of an engine. Had we had the entire day to play with the tuning, I'm sure we could have gotten even better numbers.

No worries because once I finish the car I plan to go back and put it on their chassis dyno to see what kind of power it makes at the wheels. We should have plenty of time to dial in the max power of this set up.

So kick back and watch us struggle as we try to make this engine produce some power on the dyno.

The final #'s: 574.7hp @5500 622.8lbft @4400 7.8psi boost
