What's the difference in that and putting #'s from a Mustang and/or Dynojet? Absolutely nothing. I was doing this 4-5 years ago when I had my Evo (welcome to 2008 folks). There's already a huge # difference when comparing Mustang vs Dynojet, so that right there already tells you that there is no "set in stone" power numbers. Your hp/tq #'s are constantly changing with the weather and elevation, but I'm sure you already knew that, so in reality claiming any hp/tq is pointless. They are only reference #'s to yourself while in the process of tuning your car, to see the improvements you are making. I haven't gotten a chance to change my sig yet, but as you can see my VD #s are on there from my Evo. That car was remotely tuned because I didn't have the funds or the access to a dyno, so VD is all we had. It's a good tool to use. Once people stop worrying about whose horsepower is bigger...yeah right, that'll never happen, lol. It's their sig, so why should you care what it says?
LOL....SRS? Dynojets are the most reliable dynos in comparing #s from one station to another. They aren't manipulative, and so long as you arent in high elevation, they are accurate (dyno uncorrected in that instance). Mustang dynos? Take it to a trusted dyno shop, or ask for WCF to be OFF if you want real world numbers.
Yes it's been around for a while, and it was as controversial then as it is now.
Virtual dyno...exactly that. VIRTUAL. I can change my weight 100lb and itll change it 30hp. Wheel spin affects the #. Wavy roads affect the #. Slight downhill roads affect #s. Slight uphill roads affect #s. Not accounting for passengers, or random stuff in the car...affects #s.
My point? It is far more manipulative, and easier to do so, than an actual dyno, so credibility is iffy.
