If you read my post about having my car dynoed this weekend in BG, you'll see that on a competitor's dyno I had some great #s. Should I use them in the sig. or use the #s from DRM?

Ron, I am glad you asked this cause I did not want to burst any bubbles.
That Mustang Dyno was puttin out high #s.
I would believe Doug's numbers.

Tom, I know their #s are high, but the question remains, should I use them. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif After all, they are from an independent dyno (I don't have any of their parts on my car). I do think DRM's dyno yeilds lower #s than most. Most Z06s they've tested stock read in the 320s rwhp which is much lower than most others. Truth may be somewhere in the middle. So what is a poor Z06 owner to do?

Thanks Frank, I read that too, but I'm not sure it helps much. We have hp #s that are 15 rwhp apart (3%) and we have torque #s that are 30 rwt apart(7%). One dyno seems to measure high and the other seems to measure low. I suppose I should just use the ones I like best. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif

Ron,

I really don't hold a lot of faith in dyno #'s. The true test is at the track, and you have already proved yourself many times with that Silver beast of yours!! What really counts is who gets to the finish line first, and you seem to be doing quite well at that!! /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_cool.gif

The only numbers that matter Ron are the ones on the track and you and your wife are great drivers.
I saw you leave the Museum on Sat. when you were playing with that coupe, you have one bad ass Z06. Nice color too /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif
