Default Just got back from the dyno!!

I decided to take my car the dyno today to see what I was putting down stock. I have an '05 auto and I was prepared for lower power numbers, but I was still bummed to see that I was putting down only 245.11 rwhp and 251.1 rwt. Right there I bought an SCT 2 and had them do a custom tune for me. After the tune I dynoed at 260.94 rwph and 285.37 rwt. I was amazed at how much the torque jumped. The car is soo much more responsive now. It was so awesome when I chirped 2nd for the first time!!

Auto's are always off on dyno's if done wrong. Glad you're happy with the tune though. Makes the car a whole new beast.

Not sure on the gear...I'll have to give them a call and ask. What would be the difference? The dyno was a dynojet btw.

glad to hear you like how it drives, IMO how it drives is more important than numbers. my nimbers seem low to me too, but i like how mine drives better than the numbers. numbers only matter on paper, but how it makes you feel when you drive it is what counts.
