Jerry at Eurocharged is who tunes my E55. John is his tech and the only one I trust to work on my car. I typically do everything myself but I had him do some maintenance and mods a while back and it was a great experience.

Alright. I am installing a SC soon. I'll do the install myself, but plan on taking it for a dyno run. Do you know if their stand is Dynojet?

Garage List
I use Driver Source on 14750 Memorial Dr. They have a Dynojet and their price is reasonable.

EC has a Dyno dynamics dyno. I used to race karts with one of the guys at Driver Source. Been year but he always seemed like a good guy. My brother knows him better. I wouldn't be afraid to dyno my car at either place.

I think I'll go with the place which has a dynojet. I have my NA bolt-ons baseline on EAS dynojet. Wanna compare

The Driversource dyno reads lower than other dynojets so add about 10% to compare to your previous baseline similar to what you would do for Mustang/Dyno Dynamics dynos.

What makes you think this way? 10% is a huge error.
