Can you feel the +50 HP? How many miles do you have the car at the new tune?

Given the calabration of the HP baseline is lower than the reported 580, is the increase of +57 HP actually a greater number?

yes 57 horsepower at the wheels is about 65 HP at the engine so it is making more like 645 HP now.

I was thinking that at first because mine came in at 443rwhp and after letting it cool it dyno'd at 483rwhp so that sounds about right. I've heard numbers anywhere from 440 to 500 rwhp it just depends on the conditions and type of dyno.

Interesting that there are such large variances in HP ratings when it comes to different Dyno setups.. If it was me, I would base-line the car at the dragstrip and see what the best times you could get, add your mods then do some runs again.....See what the added parts actually did, forget about the numbers on the dyno,,,,, real world results are what you wanna see....

That is the plan. I am waiting for a "run what you brung" night here in Phx. To come up. Plus I made a deal with the owner of Performance Motor Sports to get me some track time if I let him drive it too.
