Umm you know dyno numbers mean nothin for comparison purposes right?

It's not a dick measuring stick.

You were better off doing a before and after. If you want high numbers any dyno can be rigged to give you that.

OP - I think you need to contact Phil at the Houston M Club or bring it to the track at MSRH, TWS or MSR Cresson. I think there are more modded M3's running around than you saw. We'd love to see you at the track.

+1.........I would say it's hard to find a stock M3 in Houston. I'm not sure where you live or hangout but the M scene in H-Town is alive and well. Holla at me.......Phil

They all drive AMG’s and are not used to over 8K redline and he kept cutting it off at 7700 or something.
Eurocharged is legit, they aren't just an AMG shop. They are use to dealing with cars that have more than three times the hp of your M3. They are partners with UGR. One of Eurocharged shop cars is a UGR Gallardo Superleggera. A couple guys there drive a 135i and E60 M5. Wonder who they put on your car?

You were better off doing a before and after. If you want high numbers any dyno can be rigged to give you that.
For me to do before and after in the same place would be a hassle since I was removing my other mods to install the SC (pulleys, tune and intake).

I still think the dyno should give you more or less accurate number, I am not the specialist and not sure if there is a way to calibrate it, but it just doesn't make a lot of sense if it is way off even for comparison purposes.

I wanted to know if my car was running well after the install and Eurocharged dyno confirmed it, while DS dyno made me concerned.

Yes, I need to. As soon as I get my living situation here straight (garage and all), where I can work on the car and wash it properly, I plan on bringing it to the track just like I was doing in Cali on occasion.

It was a joke since I saw two modded AMG cars parked outside. I do think they are legit, don't get me wrong.
