If I'm happy, Yeah! I might dyno the new setup. I might not! I will take it to the drag strip though.

If you are going to do this you need to tune your current setup correctly and then dyno it. Then put on the new setup, get it tuned, and then dyno it again.

He doesn't have to support his claims - he can say whatever he wants.

I can say whatever I want. It is my opinion the car had about 350whp. Ish, see the plus or minus 50whp as I noted. I'm sure it was somewhere between 300-400whp. Whether or not you believe my estimates are valid means nothing.

I might not dyno this setup either! And if it rips better than before, I'll tell people it has about XXX hp. Hell I might just dyno it just to see what it makes to post on the internet to impress people and let them know how awesome I am and so they know I'm a good engine builder and I know what I'm doing and I'm just awesome!!!1

(fast car = happy, numbers = whatever)

I remember thinking my car felt fast one day. I took it to the dyno, it was making 175rwhp.

With the complexity of his setup there is about a 0% chance that it will ever be optimized without dyno tuning. Pat is free to not give a **** of course, but we are also free to make fun of him for this fact.

This thread has got to be heading for some sort of record.

I think its the "MOST JIMMIES RUSTLED IN A BUILD THREAD" record.
