: Paul:

: I tend to quote dyno numbers vs. crank hp as that gives a WAY better idea of how much power a particular mod will give.

: For example: Import tuner say their x-intake makes 5-7 hp at the crank. But on a dyno, that intake as a bolt-on makes 1-2 hp.

: Of course, which set of numbers sells better?

: So I can agree your numbers for the CAI/Software are close for flywheel quotes. But that not what I would tell me friends.

: Luxo M3

say that 1-2 hp at the wheel is 5-7 hp at the crank? Where?!!! Actually, 1 hp is more like 1.21 hp, and 2 hp is more like 2.4, using an 18% drive loss factor. I think in your post, you stated that you think you gained from 240 to at least 268, which, whether its wheel or crank, is 28 hp, not 18 hp, which was my only point.
