<<<I suspect that without a Davtron installed to evaluate and watch the IC
temps, this variance could be considered normal.  I can say that the 5ktq
that was
tested, didn't have the fan installed in front of the IC, and was put on the

dyno hot.  He pulled a 213 at the wheels that day, and I know that he
whacked a
13 sec quarter (published) which would put him off by about 20 on that dyno

IME at dynos, you need a dedicated fan on the radiator, and a dedicated fan
on the IC.  You also need to stabilize the IC temps (I used ice water in a
plant sprayer).  IC's on S cars can heat soak on the first run and NEVER
stabilize.  Especially k24 equipped cars.

Further IMO, the stage 1+ is capable of putting out 280 under optimal
conditions.  IME, a  k24 putting out that kind of power needs optimal
conditions to
put out "up to" 280hp.

Ahhhh, precisely the reason I posted my Q, diggin' the responses,
intelligible info.  Thanks.

Gots to remount that belly pan off since last oil change.  And to get off my
arse and Frankenliner the suckah...  all bandaids and stitches until the
miraculous day a FMIC dumps itself into my lap I s'pose (year 2457).  And
also time to get off my arse, put down the beeahs, and finally log some AC22
runs with Rossato & Rich etc., we've got a fair variety of cars to sample
around these here parts.  Good data points indeed, Dave.
