I also read that the Dyno Dynamics numbers can be inflated with manual correction factors. Not saying that this is what happens at the particular shop you speak of, just that it is possible. I just emailed the dyno shop (Fast Enough Performance) inquiring about the correction factors, if any, used Saturday.

The cars were accelerated on the dyno, not loaded down once up to speed - inertia mode IIRC?

Nice numbers are good for bragging rights, and franky, I would have like to see some higher numbers at 'fest. But it seems the better use is for gathering empirical feedback in the tuning process. Fortunate for me, Fast Enough Performance is only an hour from home. I can go back and chart my progress as I get the car tuned in.
