    Dynojet dynos in most cases read WAY higher then true WHP to begin with anyway (about 15% higher).

    Focus on your overall gains, comparing or debating peak power numbers for any mod is pointless at best.

    No one cares about +3 HP at 100 RPMs before redline... If a mod just makes redline power increases but costs you a few HP for most of the utilized power band its ultimately a waste of money. But if a mod produces 3 HP throughout the entire rev range it is more significant.

    No matter how high or low a dyno reads, the only numbers you should be looking at are how much you have gained or lost over the entire curve.

    Its important to understand that its very easy for a 380 HP car to beat a 400 HP car of the exact same type (depending on how its curve looks), it all depends....

    Just because you have less peak power then the other guy doesn't mean you are slower....

    I can make an X-runner put down 500 HP legitimately on a dyno but it could still be slower then a 300 HP X-Runner....

    I hate to say this, but all I keep seeing is that people are repetatively repeating themselves, on the same topic, in slightly different words. All for the point of one thing. Unfortunately, it will take time(knowledge) and reflection, sans emotion, for all of that to sink in the way it has all been intended.

    Hopefully your ambient temps will be better than Butter's and mine were. His being at 97* and mine being at 101*. Lol. If we made good numbers in those temps, imagine what it would do in 80* weather.

    I haven't been able to get a 40-90 but did spank a mustang in san antonio at the track there is a video of it but its in the southwest meet section somewhere when I ran my truck I had street tires qa1's on 7 and 35 psi in my tires 13.7 @ 107 so yea I can say that the truck would have done better if I had made adjustments to it .....here's the link
