    A question about the GT3 dyno chart

    For those of you more technically apt, why does the torque curve of the GT3 look so "wavy"? Is it a product of the boxer layout, cam setup, what?

    Re: A question about the GT3 dyno chart

    I'm just guessing, but it is my belief that torque is calculated (using HP), so if the hp curve is "wavey" then the torque curve will be as well.

    During dyno testing it is the torque which is actually measured, and the power is then calculated from the torque figure by factoring in the engine speed at which that torque was measured.

    The "discontinuities" referred to by Crash will be the switching points for the VarioCam Plus system.

    I realized after I had posted the reply that I had a 50/50 chance of getting this wrong....
