Why would one give difference, better or worse over the other?

Does street have more real torque? What gives with HP on dyno not transfering as well to street as with tunnng in car on street?

ive had cars come off the dyno making awesome power but just being a pig to drive (flat spots etc..) i think dynos are great tools but you always need a final "tweak" out on the street to get it right...

I think there is a couple of problems with tuning on the street. First Its hard as hell to drive, watch guages/datalogs and other things and change settings at the same time. Second of all When you make a change on the street how do you know if it helped or not.



You can get real real close on the street.....don't get me wrong 90 % of my stuff is done on the street......day after day after day. Then go to the dyno and look at the power and torque and what not.....make adjustments and see exactly where improvements can be made.

The dyno is for bragging rights sorta. You have an actual document that says my car has X amount of horsepower.

I'm with Mike on this one, if it's fast then to hell with the dyno sheet.

yeah, lol dynos great to tune the 4000up ranges, thats hard on the street. i like the car to run hard, i'm just not super worried about the actual # that comes out of the dyno.
