Sorry Paul, I didn't (don't) see any whp or wtq figures in Riff's message.
But, if you go with 195whp/0.80 -> for a possible 243.75 imputed flywheel
hp, wouldn't that put Riff in the realm of reasonable claims for a +1 car?
how much more were you expecting?

If it, the imputed bhp #'s, is slightly low, maybe it's a reflection of
something else wrong with the car that might also explain why he didn't pass
HC emissions?  Running too rich?  Can't that kill your power curve too.
What's the list claim for what a +1 car should do?

Personally I'm looking forward to a report on Hap's drive down to sea-level
altitude densities and what his blue denim's
http://www.mauihoney.com/Island%20Pants.htm  have to report for effect on
his spool up.

~Hmmm...  is it me the only one that finds Riff's recent dyno #'s
~of ~ 195whp
~/ 196wtq for a 1+ car a bit on da lower side of what is commonly
~advertised???  Does this more serve to say tuner's claims are in fact
~drastically optimistic?  In this case, I don't care if you're
~using a TCF of
~75-80% or whatever, it ain't gittin' anywhere NEAR MTM's claims of 280hp /
~While I agree with JuanPizzo, MikeyLP, etc. that you can get a
~dyno to say /
~mean anything, if these #s were true I'd hafta say it's waaaaaaaay
~past time
~to get my trusty buttdyno recalibrated...  'feels' more than 250-260 crank
~hp / tq to me fersure...
~-P it may really fan some flames and stir some pots but this is sorta
~intriguing K.
~P.S.  sorry Riff, no help here on your emissions flunkyflunk...
~I'll let the
~technogeeks have at that one, I'm merely a geekygeek...
