Big Daddy, what part of Asheville are you in? I am in Morganton, but used to work in Asheville at Volvo Construction on Hwy 25. Just curious. Also, let me know the prices and how your cars turn out! Thanks, and keep the roads hot!

That would be us!! But I don't think Isaac is going to make it now because of work. BUT I am going I have to know now if the dyno that True Blue uses is off what they are saying (30-40rwhp LOW)!

True Blue Proformance in Benson, NC? Don't they use a dynojet too? Seems weird to me that it would be off that much. You will have to post your results. I am intrested in if this is true or not. Of course the guys at True Blue seem to have several high performing cars frequenting thier dyno. It might need a little calibrating.

True Blue is in Benson, NC and they don't have use of the dyno that is in there shop right now (LONG story), so they are using Turbo Tune in Greensboro, NC. They have told myself and Isaac Price that the dyno there seems to be 30 to 40 hp low on it's readings. I personally don't believe it so I'm taking it to a NEW dyno to see what kind of numbers I put down. I suppose a dyno can get out of calibration but I don't really know how!

interpretive software, drum speed indicator, or user error (i.e. not pushing the pedal all the way down) Chassis Dynos work in a very simple fashion as you know. Accerlate a known mass as quickly as you can... So the "speedo", if you will, on the drum may be out of whack or the software may be for a different drum weight or something like that.... should be a one time fix. Not really an on going calibration routine. Either way I agree with you that there shouldn't be that big of a difference between two dynos of the same type. Let us know what you find out. I am curious...
