[QUOTE=Zzz...Zzz;3203575]We have done a lot of engine simulations the last couple of years, and compared them to eral life dyno runs afterwards, and it is amazing how accurate the sim and reality is.
Saves us for a lot of time when in the dyno.

Here is the first simulation we did on the engine platform i use now, basicly this is a very mildly reworked 4.6 liter engine, runing 2 bar boost with std. cams.

The engine going into the granada is a heavilly reworked unit, with nothing even close to standard.

So, his test engine, which has standard cams is making 1350bhp in the simulator?
