+1. No 2 engines are the same. Not to mention, I saw a difference of 7whp between my 3 runs. So its really hard to tell if (A) the exhaust made any difference at all (B) the exhaust is making more than 4whp on a motor that is less powerful than tut's, since there's no baseline to dispute that or (C) our motors put out identical stock numbers, and the exhaust is truly making 4whp

We had to use the tail pipe sniffing method, which isn't the most reliable. I couldn't get my A/F because the operator didn't want to clamp it too tight onto my tips. He was afraid it might damage them, and the car kept blowing the sensor out of the pipe.

SAE correction factor. It was a nice cool day, which resulted in almost 20whp I guess you could do the math. Both cars put 340-345whp down, and stock they are rated at 414. At 340whp, thats a 18% loss. A loose rule of thumb is 15% 2wd, 20% awd. I'm sure you can throw a +/- 5% in there with that loose rule of thumb. At 18%, I'd say its about right, but nothing close to under-rated.
