I'd like to have a nice dyno graph just like any other guy, so it can stroke my ego and make my man land bigger. However I realistically know that dyno numbers do not hold much credibility. A while ago I was at an event where they showed how dynos can be manipulated. They took a car and made a pull, then changed some inputs on the dyno and it had an 80 hp swing. Once I saw that I no longer bought into any performance claims shown by dynos

Plus I drive my car on the street and not the dyno, so I'm more concerned with how it performs there. I will say though, that the dyno serves as a great safe environment tuning opportunity.

Anyways just my .02
