Scott's numbers in Chicago do not equal ASW's numbers
in CO, or Gary's in CA...or any of the above on
different days, conditions, etc.

The best way to test a modification IMO is to have a
baseline, make one change and check your baseline,
whether that's on a dyno, down a 1/4 mile track with a
consistent driver, datalogging certain parameters or
looking at a bunch of needles jumping around.
