Wow. Good job. Mystery solved. Shiit nugga

Lesson for those who said "restriction" or "exhaust" or "ignition breakup" or whatever.

Restrictions do not cause a very sudden drop like that. Ignition doesn't also suddenly break up very consistently at a specific RPM.

When I first saw the graph "dyno smoothing" came to mind, and then "soft rev limiter". If the car hit a hard limiter during the pull, it tells me the smoothing algorithm on the Mustang dyno is aggressive and poor.
