Thanks for all the information. Now you bring up dyno's, what is the most accurate?
Don't trust a dyno to be "accurate". It is just a tuning tool; you do a baseline, then you make changes, and you use the dyno to determine if your changes worked and then optimise the tune based on what the dyno is telling you. Its a TOOL, not a precision instrument.

A dyno will not "correctly" show which car is faster down the strip in any way. HP numbers are for the braggers not the runners! Give me a good driver with a few bolt ons and a good tune and I will bet my money on the car he's driving, not the numbers shown from a dyno chart! Besides, the dyno can't show how good a car shifts or the correct amount of air/tempatures an engine gets going down the strip. track/road conditions, tires, to many other obsticles. It takes a lot of HP to make up the difference between the above factors, so 20, 30, or even 50HP just does not mean much in my eyes!

I'm gonna like this place.......:friday::beer-fresh:

Dynos are just another tool, not a scale. I've seen people pick up .5 sec on the track, by tweaking their suspension. There's a wholistic approach to setting up a car, and about 30% of that comes off the dyno.
