    Dissapointed kind of on dyno results any input?/

    So had my 06 sts-v taken to dyno shop to be dynoed and tuned now was a mustang dyno and he said it reads low but he told me it put down 270 on the ground and car has magnaflow mufflers and resonator along with stage 1 and 2 spectre intake. Said after he got done tuning it put down 330 on ground along with putting shift tables out of a 13 vette for better shift response anybody kind of ran into same issue i figured numbers would have been way higher stock lol

    Stock v's put down 360 370 hp your tuner is a moron. Give jesse at wait4me a call he'll wake up your car big time.

    Do you have a Dyno sheet? Post the name of the shop and the tuner who did the work. Any photos of your car?

    The numbers are irrelevant. There could be any number of factors that scale the HP number. The important part is that you've gained quite a bit of power from the tune. If you're worried, dyno at another location to verify numbers.

    I ran on a mustang dyno then the following week on a dynojet and it was a 34hp difference between the two. you are putting way to much on the number and not what a dyno is. a dyno is used as a tool to tune your car and make it all things are good in a controlled environment. if you saw a 50+hp gain from only a tune, your doing more than great.

    Re: Dissapointed kind of on dyno results any input?/

    The biggest indicator that something isn't right is the 60rwhp gain from a tune. That is not possible. Go somewhere else to verify that the tune he put on there is decent and to get another set of numbers. Your car should make the 360-380 that was previously mentioned and it should pick up 15-20rwhp with a tune. There aren't that many factors that affect wide open throttle. Timing and air/fuel ratio. That's it. Both would have to be way, way off to pick up that much power.

    Re: Dissapointed kind of on dyno results any input?/

    Yea they were doing some thing with the dyno to pick up that much. My 06 stock made 368. Last weekend the new owner dynoed it and it made 389 with a tune no cats magnaflow x-pipe and mufflers. And the custom intake. with 100k now on it. And no before any one asks I have yet to put the 08 on the dyno but It just out runs the 06 so the 412 I was told it makes might be right. But any way you should go to some one else for tuning and a deferent dyno. I hope the did not charge you much.

    Beautiful. What's the best way to paint calipers? Longest lasting, best look. Are there certain shops I should go to? I'd probably not be doing this myself. I'm thinking red.
