Nice runs
It's a mystery...just guesses at this point. The measurement seem to be correct as they are consistent (over 25 dyno's) and have been confirmed by the installation of a mechanical boost guage. Mike is right in that less boost and more power is a good thing

What kind of numbers does this translate to SAE wise? I was under the impression that SAE was the industry standard for dyno data but please correct me if I'm wrong as I am a little new to the dyno world.

That 8600rpm redline must be fun!
Thx yeah I need to pull up the charts but yes SAE is a tad bit lower. Uncorrected was about the same as STD. Not sure about what is considered industry "standard" but I thought STD is "standard"
