I always figured they were a bit optimistic. I've seen some other questionable dynos from them around.

pretty funny Tom, that's why I wanted to dyno at tune tech so bad :)

I originally thought the answer might be those new covers you're working on!

BPP uses a Mustang dyno, not a Dynojet. Mustang Dynos are well known to be "optimistic" because of the way they measure rear wheel power.

It is not a BPP issue, it is a Mustang dyno issue. A very pricey euro car dealer around here is also installing the Mustang unit. When I asked them why, they responded that it was less expensive to purchase and they were only interested in using it for tuning purposes.

Personally, I will only dyno test on Dynojet units that are running the latest software and operated by trained, and experienced folks...

As you can see in my sig the dyno jet is what I use also, I was not getting on Ernie infact I wound up in the drivers seat for a few other cars on the dyno, he was short handed and I got drafted.
I also gave him one of our cards an asked him to check in with us.
You might see him soon with his own vendor topic.

Mine was 330/330 on a dynojet, stock. I'm going back to the same dyno this Saturday with Corsa Indys, Vortex, BPP Powerduct, and hopefully the Corsa X-Pipe and GMS 5% MAF (if they arrive in time).

CraigK and Netjunkie, thanks for the info on your dynos. Two very mildly '01s dynoed up at Carlisle and both registered 337-338 rear wheel. So, it appears that your numbers are in the ballpark.

I guess i am hoping my '02 will measure in the 350's at least considering the Vortex system. Yes, I should have baselined first, but I just brought the car up from BG in time for Sat Carlisle and i had a great deal going with the Vortex pieces and install - so I went for it. Since the car needed to do a relearn for at least 50-75 miles, even the dyno operator said wait.

So, I do have a copy of '02 numbers, some from the Corvette forum and one from Jim Hall's test. Jim's car was running on California crap fuel in undoubted hot weather, so I think his 337 rear wheel is a little low. If accurately rated at 405, the '02s should be making 345 or so rear wheel, and other prelim tests show they are making this on some other '02s.

I will be running Sunoco 94 always, and especially on 9/22 Dyno Day! Hope we can get some Z06vette.com turnout that day - let me know. BadAssZ06 is already coming...

If I know Jim, I doubt he was running on straight Cali Crap Gas....:) Then again, he's very meticulous with the numbers so maybe he was.......

BLEUBYU, You definitely should be in the 350s rwhp on your 02 with the Vortex. I hung around the Dyno at Carlisle much of Saturday afternoon. I watched three 01 Z06s make their pulls.

One bone stock made 331 rwhp (SAE). Car belonged to a guy who said he drove it conservatively.

Mine with only a Halltech Tric made SAE 347 rwhp. On this same dyno last year it had made 336 bone stock.

The last Z06 I saw had a Halltech Tric, a ported throttle body and a set of B&B shorty headers. Its owner said he drove it conservatively; one year old and 1200 miles. It made SAE 347 rwhp.

So, assuming you're getting on the throttle to teach the PCM who's boss, 350+ should be achieved.

Let us know.
