Every dyno is different. Its a tuning device. Impossible to compare one car to another on different dynos.

Why would a dynojet reads a lower number than a mustang dyno?

The operator can make whatever number you want to be on the sheet.
One car will read 290 on one dyno will read 335 on another.

Actually the HP on that LS was on a Mustang Dyno. And you are correct, the mustang dyno reads lower than a dynojet or any other dyno. The dyno op. can fudge the dyno numbers messing with correction factor. You dyno a car on a dynojet, never mind a dyna pack then go to a mustang dyno, you will feel like shooting yourself in the head.

I've operated a mustang dyno for 6 years. i know how they work. but i also know that 1/4 mile calculators are very inaccurate. and that is what you were implying to use "do the numbers" it also not uncommon for a ls1 motor to pick up 50-80 hp and a 1/2 second with headers tune and a cam. most inconsistent readings you see are from different dyno companies. dyna pak, dyno dynamics, mustang, dyno-jet and so on. they all read differently. so going from one dyno to the other will greatly effect final #'s but if you stick to the same brand dyno the numbers should be alot closer on average. we would get 825 from the civic on the ,mustang dyno and take it down to a local dynojet and get 905 but its 2 different brand/style dynos.

I guess its the short wheelbase?
Is the R1 engine lighter than the stock engine?

That thing is awesome and completely insane.

So you know then that dyno numbers are pointless without a baseline.
50-80 hp with headers, tune and CAM.
LT's and a tune on average is a gain of 25-30hp.
Ask any speedshop or go to a website and check out the numbers.
They'll show you baseline and the change.

As far as the calculator.. It will be more accurate than the Dyno Dynamics running in Shootout mode with no correction factor. They are known to read high.

Well...almost every time I go through a drive through with my hot rod I usually draw a crowd of people looking out the window wanting to catch a glimpse of my car. It really isn't that old or isn't that fancy but they still want to grab a glimpse. Every once in a while someone will ask me if I want to sell it. I politely tell them not right now. My car? It is a black 2000 Honda Civic Coupe with a factory spoiler on the back. The kids just love it. It is my daily driver and today it just turned 220k miles. I keep it around because I drive 110 miles a day to and from work and it gets good gas mileage. It has served me well and definitely isn't as nice as some of the cars that have been posted here.

Sorry lord Jaggededge, knower of all things mechanical...............

All I can do is show the dyno read out, what you choose to believe or claim to know is up to you.
I did get the motor second hand so maybe had a cam swap, although the guy who did teh tune advised he suspected factory cam judging by vacuum readings.

I have only had it at the drags once, and that was before the dyno tune and with a faulty air temp sensor (it was in limp mode at minus 55 degrees)
And 7 year old tyres that would spin in 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th.
The car weighs 1210kg with me in it.

I managed 13.85 1/4 @ 104mph.




And this may give you an idea of the gearing, the below pic is in 5th gear (sorry it is only with a phone camera)

Nice bike Dan. Reminded me that I have one.
Wish I made it out to the track when I was in California.
Here's my RZ after the last "build" I did.

Nuttn wrong with that. I don't know how many '32 fords I've seen with chevy big blocks in them over the years. The LS swaps bring in the dough too. I'm thinking about shelving my 496 and putting a LS in my chevelle to sell it. Mo' munny!
