Hello to all dear Huracan owners.
I own a 19 Huracan Performante and I'm potentially exploring some bolt-on mods, excluding for now any forced induction kit.
After some research, it seems the most common mods where we can really extract some ponies are:
- ECU tune (VF claims 24whp with dyno sheet and other vendors claim similar figures - this translates into a 4.8% increase from their dyno baseline)
- Less restrictive exhaust (fabspeed h-pipe non-valved claims 16whp with dyno sheet - 2.83% increase from their baseline). Another advantage of these exhaust systems is weight reduction of about 12-17kg which, in terms of weight-power ratio, has the same effect as increasing power by 5-8hp at the crank on a Performante
- Reid intake hoses (claims 13whp with dyno sheet - 3% from their baseline)
All these summed up would translate into a very considerable 10.63% power increase, not counting with the weight reduction effect from the exhaust of course. Of course that without dynoing all of them together we don't know if they really sum up linearly.
Thus, my questions are:
1. Has anyone here done some or all of these mods? If yes, did you dynoed it, what are your impressions?
2. Having the Performante an already factory less restrictive exhaust (and in corsa and sport gases go "straight"), is it still plausible to extract a bit more power with a simpler h-pipe design like the fabspeed or soul exhausts?
3. What could really lead to exhaust gains in the performante system? The absense of the valves themselves inside the pipes allows for slightly bigger gas volume going out? the absense of the muffler reduces any marginal gases that could still try passing through it instead of going straight through the valves?
4. How realistic are these claimed gains?
5. Is it realistic to expect a +- 50whp (about 60hp at the crank) increase with these mods, bumping the Perf from 630hp (or 640ps if you prefer) to about 690hp (700ps)?
We'd like to hear your experiences and inputs.
Thank you in advance.
