Most dyno video looks about the same, but of course it’s a big deal for the owner!  There’s a couple parts of the video where you can hear it being loaded down, the boost building up, hearing the turbo whistle, and of course the blowoff valve 🙂 The Dynopack is perfect for doing partial-throttle variable loads. Because the entire tuning session was so long, the video is of course just a sample of various runs. Sorry I didn’t record “the” run; I forgot to have him signal me ahead of time.

Okay, time to announce the “guess the horsepower” winners! The rules were that the three closest guesses would win a copy of the (future) book. There was a tie for the closest two, 425 hp by JR Crosby, and 394 hp by Bob Callaway. Second closest guesses were also tied, 426 hp by Chris Poglitsch and Nick Schultz. While I said only three would win, it seems fair to give these four a win. Now I have to finish the book…

I must give a big thanks to Jeremy of Drag Cartel for building an awesome engine, and to Daniel at Church Automotive for his hard working getting the car tuned so well and putting up with my nonsense. Oh, and Jeremy just e-mailed me, saying that he has new cams coming out that should push it over the 500 hp mark…
