The best way:

Car goes on a dyno, the tuner does dyno runs modifying parameters until you have a tune for the best power curve possible.

The other way:

contact a tuner, tell him what year/model and what mods you have. He can build a tune that takes advantage of your mods and also reduce the 'unusual attributes' that the OEM tune can have (eg. 06 Saleen extreme tune running super rich)

No offense to anyone but through history the trend in the automotive industry has to been to fudge on horsepower numbers, Ie. derating in the 60's to fool ins companies through now inflating numbers to promote betters sales in a very competitive market. Lets just go old school establish our own baselines and then modify the hell out of cars to our hearts content

you have got to be kidding me. Who are YOU to question MY credibility ???

Ask anyone on this forum who has been to my shop. I don't "fudge" anything.

The numbers produced on my Dyno are 100% legit numbers, whether you like them or NOT is not my problem. If a car doesn't make the power you are expecting, that is not my issue, UNLESS i told you it will make X amount. Now if an auto mfg says it will make X amount and it doesn't. Then you look at what others are making with same car. If EVERYONE is making less power, then you have a legit issue. You have to look at the big picture when it comes to auto mfg marketing HP.

Also there are a lot of people who fudge numbers and make numbers look higher than they really are. I won't get into that....I do not participate in that and do not condone that type of behavior.

So the owners manual always says take it easy on the motor for the first 500 miles. But when you dyno these new Saleens they are run up to Redline a few times on virtually a brand new motor? So is the 500 mile break in needed?

Yes because it helps the pistons "seat" properly and breaks in the motor gradually. Will the car not run properly if you start beating on it sooner maybe. Its one of those "its better to be safe than sorry."

Some people subscribe to the "beat it hard" method of engine break in. I have to say that the best engine we had in a road race car had zero break in before we ran in it in a 12 hour endurance race. It was a new stock engine in a 300zx turbo that we got in the car just in time to start the race. We blew up the old motor the day before the race and put in our new "zero hour" spare in. We ran that same engine for 2 more years before we rebuilt in a higher horsepower monster. I am not recommending this method, but it does make you think.

Interesting reading on the "beat it hard" method:

^+1 I didn't say I "agreed" with the method just that its better to be safe and sorry. My original stock E motor popped a piston with 2400 miles on it. The motor has almost twice the power with 500 miles and we were beating on it since day one. I'm 100% sure it will last 10X longer.
