Wierd Dyno

Hey all,
I just got back from the LPG place after they're "attempt" at tuning my LPG. I know find out that i "may" need a balancer between the mixer and converter? . Anywho, when they ran it on the dyno it got 58kw according to the computer, then 78, then 58, back and forward, etc ,etc , etc This to me is really wierd, i mean, People with stockish EA's are getting around 100rwkw! I have my suspicions that this dyno is screwed. Also they only ran the car for like 1/2 a minute, how long are they suppose to run it to find out?

Re: Wierd Dyno

Also, I noticed today my spark plugs in the EA are the EB XR6 style ones. Is this good or bad? the lpg place fitted them last time i got major work done.

Re: Wierd Dyno

Slayer, Well then i guess 78 is close to correct, which is good, but bad at the same time.
