Perth Dyno Comparisons

I had a quick skim through the new perth street car mag at a newsagent while waiting for someone today,

One article - they stuck a commo ute on 9 different dyno's around perth.

There was IIRC around 70 or 80 hp difference between the lowest and highest figure, which just goes to show how inaccurate the readings really are. I know west racing had the second lowest figure, but i didnt have time to read the whole article.

If anyone has the mag - wanna post those results? Did they mention which one was the closest result to what they expected?

Re: Perth Dyno Comparisons

Yup I've heard there is a few very dodge dynos in Perth.. There is one place that a big reputation of being optimistic with the figures - one of the genie outlets I believe

Re: Perth Dyno Comparisons

so who is right and who is wrong.

and what was the expected figure and how did they determine this was correct?

doesnt sound like very good journalism or was it just something one of Perth Street Car advertisers dreamed up to poo poo some of the competition

to the black top dyno >

Someone asked which was closest to the mark....

Well, this obviously isnt totaly fool proof (because what if like, 5 of them are wrong, and the highest was right? but meh, this will do)

Take away the lowest and highest and average out the rest....
It had about 352..... Thats about the fairest way to work it out.
