This graph looks very similars to my friends. did you by any chance dyno'd this at all jap in sunrise? if you did, im sorry to tell you but you are not making no where near the power you think you are.
i went to one of their dyno events a few weeks back and realized that that dyno produces some real bullshit numbers. as a matter of fact eveyone of my friends said that dyno adds atleast 30+hp's.
take a look at my friends dyno sheet both dynos were done in the same day with the same psi. this is a Probe GT.

Yea well thats the thing, you might not even be around 230... Realisticly you are between 212 - 218. As my friends results show a 42 hp discrepancy. I wish you had another dyno comparison, perhaps in the same dyno you origanally posted. Then we would trully get some accurate comparisons.

Try a percentage discrepancy...not a "42 hp" discrepancy. The 10% difference your friend lost is only 26hp for Jared, putting him at 234.

OH...and...stop threadcrapping. This is the kind of **** that should be in PMs...otherwise it makes you look like an *******. I understand you're probably trying to help, but you're being a jerk doing it. The first post might have been warranted, the second one is derailing a FS thread

Godspeed, i didnt mean to come off as a jerk and i was unaware of a FS thread. I think leatherface24 setup is awesome and my hat is off to him for his innovation spirit, however to warrant the gains, a valid dyno is needed as to not to mislead others who may want to do this in the future.

Btw tyson, I live in lauderhill and think i have seen your car before in previous meets.

I'll make it more clear for the less intelligent....




look how that dyno added in all the extra torque past 5.5K

Maybe your friend with teh Probe GT needs to fix his boost issues the occurred between dynos before calling BS on the first dyno.

It's all freaking relative. He made more TQ on the dynojet....but less HP....it's apparent why...go die.

Im going to head back to where I did my first Dyno run so theres more of a definitive idea of what the cars doing now. at least i can say i bested Flyin Miatas 228rwhp max lol

On a side note, I have my new turbo and all the fittings and lines and flanges and all that jazz. The new manifold should be bitchin and help me out with spool. The EWG should help that too. I wont have it all done until next month, hopefully the first week. We'll see

My bad...this isn't the FS thread, he's got one by almost the same name.

Damn right, he's done a LOT with a turbo most people write off as worthless. I used to be in that crowd.



I think Brainy addressed the dyno part...
