The Midget’s First Dyno Run at Forged Performance

Sunday, March 24th, 2013
This past weekend we took the Midget down to Forged Performance to get a baseline horsepower number for our 2JZ-GE running the stock ECU. We found the engine was producing 145 WHP. This number is much lower than expected, but that only means one thing, room for improvement! We have a long way to go before reaching our power goal, but with the help of our friends at Forged, an ECU tune, and a little forced induction we should be able reach our design specifications in no time. Again thanks Forged Performance for all your help.
