    Damn 112 mph is good, but your ETs are high. this weekend i ran 12.23@112mph. also emailed you back the prices..

    never asked me for money. I did register...but if I recall money is only for the more advanced calculators. The lesser ones (1/4 mile et, trap speed vs. hp, etc.) are free I think?

    I had mine set at 4000 vs. your 4100. I'm sure it makes a difference. Also in my LPE dyno thread, Bill posted that having weight in your trunk will give you better traction and will produce better numbers.

    Bottom line is there are so many factors in this, it's really hard to compare. Just go to the same shope each time, and use the same perameters. At least that way you cut out as many variables as possible, and should be able to compare to your older runs. As I said earlier, I always compare my 3rd hot run, as it tends to be the most consistant (and matches real world driving anyway). If you do this, and then go DOWN on your HP/TQ ratings, I'd start pointing fingers at the mods you made , and not the dyno

    I dunno, I tried the 1/8 mile one but couldnt get it to work. Maybe you could run the numbers for me.

    3150lbs 102mph in the 1/8 15% loss in driveline. Was currious what it would spit out.

    I guess I should be happy!
    I have the same mods as you except for the volant cai and headers with no resonators and cats. I was expecting 390-400rwhp.

    Black Beast, I bet if you dyno the car in these cooler temps. You might just be around 390-400 HP. I was thinking of going back to the dyno just for the hell of it.
    I know my car feels faster now than in the summer.

    But they dont get any respect from the league! It's not a "us vs them" situation, that's how it's been this whole season.

    Re: Dyno #'s ????

    I was a dyno operator a couple years ago and I ran a mustang dyno. I can tell you without a doubt the 4-4100 lb rating that the tech puts in is going to make a world of difference. It also depends on what correction factor that the tech has loaded for the dyno to look at.

    A/C systems shut off at WOT anyways so nothing lost there. But all other parasitic losses can attribute. Sometimes the traction control will reduce power as well and play tricks on the dyno. Also the days, No two readings are comparable unless everything about the weather is the same.

    I would hope that tech had a fan on the car.

    When I was running the dyno an 04 Maggied, long tubes, corsa, intake, and tune from us put down like 460 range. But that was cooling the car down and trying for peak numbers. Our dyno was notorious for reading on the low side as well. I felt it was much more real world then some of the HP readings of others.

    Back when this post was originally written dyno's used rubber bands and flintstone rollers. Scientific advancements like electricity have been made since then.
