Product Testing at RS*R: RAN*UP

I know I haven’t talked about my personal car on here much but I’ve been keeping it low key. Total “budget build” meaning if it ain’t a hook up, free or “sponsored” it ain’t happening on my car haha. An luckily it’s been working out and i’m happy with the results.
RS*R contacted me and talked about testing their product RAN*UP and at first i was like hell yah! Of course who would turn down anything from RS*R!? But when i found out that it was a oil additive i was a little weary at first. Staff there told me more about the product and totally sold me on the benefits of running RAN*UP in any car. Enhancing engine efficiency and reducing friction through out all the lubricated parts of the engine while increasing power…  When he said he can prove all this with dyno runs and numbers. I was in for sure.

While i was at their facility who wouldn’t want to take pics. So here’s some random shots before we got started.

After talking about specifics with the engine and what not.. We got to adding fresh oil in the car and started preping the car for the base run on dyno.

After fresh oil and everything was looked at and good to go they proceeded to load the car on the the coolest dyno i’ve ever seen. 4 wheel, length adjustable and super hi-tech.

Baseline dyno started now! 

After a few runs and getting the average of the runs they determined the RWHP making sure the numbers were not chosen from the highest pull or lowest. Which was pretty cool. Coming from the IS build we always went with peak RWHP. But, anyway. After the base run we break’d for lunch, let the car cool and restart the dyno runs to get more consistent numbers.

After Lunch was time for RAN*UP !!! (darn blurry pic)

Back to work on the dyno…

Dyno graph showed 3HP gain and I was stoked to hear that the product worked that well. Below you see the TRQ increase and HP increase from the orginal runs. (note the car has been set up with a lower compression for boost “someday” in the far far away future)

End result RAN*UP is proven! Definitely worth it and something worth trying.
