We had a Amazon dyno day in New Orleans yesterday. Started off rough.
car 1: Harley Truck: broken intercooler pump. 220* intake temps
car 2: 03 Cobra: Bad O2 sensor. unmetered air problem
car 3: my 03 cobra: bad spark plugs. was misfiring

Started at 9:00. By 2:00 my car was still sitting on the dyno waiting for the new spark plugs to be installed. Prior to me. No one had been able to run a full run yet. Car 2 was on a lift and the harley was being worked on the side. Rick has the patience of a saint. Then things turned around quickly. My plugs were in. Got 475rwhp 516 torque. A whippled cobra got 650ish hp. An insane twin turbo cobra got 850ish hp which melted the straps holding it down and evantually needed 2 people in the trunk and one holding the air inlet tube before the throttle body so it wouldn't fly off again. But by the end of the day (8:00pm) everyone was very happy. 6 cars done. My car is running smooth as ever and feels so much stronger. What a difference a good tune makes!

Did the twin turbo happen to be a GT with a 4V swap? Im pretty sure it's a guy who posts over on SVTP and MPH did his work...car puts down great power...glad you got things worked out, sounds like a long spark plug change :D

EDIT: just saw the guys post over on ModFords, so it was a cobra, my bad...734rwhp on a Mustang dyno isnt too bad

It was 734 but they had to adjust the numbers because the dyno was not calibrated correctly. It was reading way low hp for everyone across the board. About 15-20% low from what Rick was saying.

Well, it looks about right from what I know...it took another '03 22lbs and 19* timing to make 811rwhp, so those numbers with that boost look right...and that was on a dynojet...good numbers nonetheless :thumbsup:
