Agreed. I know that if my next setup makes more/less/same power than a previous setup, it's not likely to be due to a different dyno or operator or whatever. Plus the Delaware place lets us do simple tweaks between runs, lets us run our own car, and is cheap. People have done 5-6 pulls with major tweaks between runs and it's still the same price.

Somehow I missed the fact that there was a second blown motor that day. Or are you saying it happened more recently? My recollection is that Jes' car had clearly audible knock on the dyno.
