That is good value! It’s interesting to go straight to hybrid, I would be intrigued what the stock turbo can do with an uprated intercooler first.
Does the power last more than one run?
My original turbo blew so my hand was forced 😈 I think they could get a couple of runs on their Dyno then it struggles due to heat. On the road I haven’t felt a noticeable decrease in power after a good long run on country roads seem pretty solid.

Is this wheel HP or estimated crank HP.
Any idea what stock 4C does on this dyno.
Not sure whether it’s Wheel HP or estimated crank HP will ask. Please see below a print out of their stage 1 map from their website which shows a standard run of 246bhp so hopefully their dyno is a realistic one and not a magic number machine.

@engine SAE J1349 I screen grabbed the image from their Instagram post that’s why the quality is rubbish.

Yes still running the original CAT.
This makes me wanting to hybrid mine as well... I did it once on my Giulietta QV with a 3inch exhaust, intercooler upgrade, etc. Did about 335hp.
On the other side, I'm at 296hp at the moment and always tell myself: it's far more than enough.

I ordered one of these: Dragy Motorsports
I think these Dragy devices may solve a lot of our questions....and determine what mods really do ON THE SAME CAR compared to stock. The price is right also so if they prove to be as accurate as they claim and durable....might get one myself.

Would be fruitless to compare different cars as there are so many variables....but on the same car and same location, surface, temperature, humidity, etc. they could be very useful.
