You should get the DRF files and have a look at what the uncorrected figures are also.
The barometric pressure is of more of importance here.
The pressure is 28.76 in-Hg

Hum, maybe the conditions isn't perfect. I will put on my Pulley and dyno again in the spring maybe.

Is 5th gear better for DCT ?

Dyno numbers are pointless man. Your mods seem to work since you beat your buds stock M3. Only use em to compare YOUR stock baseline with the mods your doing. So many variables that if you do try to compare (like we all love to do lol) you just end up going mad eventually

Exactly.

There is too much dispute with dyno numbers. If it's not tuned on the dyno - the SAME day, SAME strap down, SAME fuel, SAME conditions, dynos are a simply a tool to get a "general idea". And there are even variables in this situation alone, such as rising IAT temperatures, heat soak, etc..

Too many variables, and too many people seeking out specific numbers. Very unrealistic. What matters is how that car performs on the road in real world conditions. Comparing one car to another via different dyno results is not technically a valid comparison.

I know mine is fast because I beat all of the DCT cars I run with my 6MT

It took a whole page for this answer to pop up Hahahaha that 370 means nothing without a baseline dyno

Well, I'm using analogy to strengthen your point; that being that one cannot quantitatively compare two M3s power output no matter how qualitatively similar they may seem.

The analogy, of course, being athletic performance (power output when deadlifting) between two qualitatively similar lifters.

In other words you see a version of OPs question on a lot of lifting forums.

It wouldn't cost you a lot to try a different tuner.

Looks close to what I had with AA tune, AA green filter, and gutted (catless) OEM x-pipe before I went boosted. I made 375hp and 283trq with similar mods.

I know i've explained this 10000X and i'm sure Mike has as well.

We use dyno's for tuning and a general Hp number only. A full Fbo only makes 350 Whp on our dyno anyway.. Try showing that number off on the internet lol.

I made 375 WHP on EAS's dyno with filter, pulley, HFC, axleback and a tune. It was hot that day.
