Well fiddlesticks....but hey, judging from the pic of the FIST, you got in some quality stretching time for those bothersome hamstrings !

Haha, that's not me as I'm behind the camera.

I spent all day trying to console myself over the low numbers, but I know a few factors came into play-

-It was a Mustang dyno
-It was hot and humid, both of which hurt power individually (let alone combined)
-I know that both tunes still have some wiggle-room in them
-I had the AP3 plugged into the OBDII port which made them have to calibrate the dyno for rpm, and while that shouldn't result in a huge change it does add in some human-factor into the equation. This could obviously skew things in either direction-good or bad.
-It was a dyno day and the dyno was seeing work that it's not exactly set up for. Yes, it's supposed to be able to do dyno pulls, but doing them in such rapid succession was putting serious strain on it. A 500 rwhp Mustang nearly caught it on fire once it was his turn. That was fun to watch.

Not trying to make excuses, simply over-analyzing the situation. I know that the tune that I'm working on is already making more power in the FoST and that I still have a long ways left to go with it, so I spent about half of the day reading and over-analyzing different components of the tune and established a few different things that I would like to try out and experiment with in ATR. I'll probably take it out for a few hours later on today, but I'm still punching in changes from my last batch of logs from Friday.

I also talked to them about renting dyno time, which I may schedule once it comes time to make VE adjustments. If I do then I'll probably log a couple of pulls on my tune, which should show a little bit better numbers even in it's current state of incompletion.

tl;dr-Analyzing excuses to formulate a plan.

Definitely not racing dyno's. If anything, this is a baseline for which I can compare against later. Even the dyno operator had commented that that was good hp for a car as light as the FiST on a Mustang dyno. For comparison, a stock Dart had logged 20hp less-and that's a car with comparable weight to the FoST. Essentially, I have 20 more whp in a car that weighs nearly 500 lbs less, and nearly 70 more whp in a vehicle of comparable weight. That's ok in my book.

I really wish I had gotten baseline dyno's before messing with the cars. I always say I'm going to with 'the next' car, and I always end up saying that 'I wish I had' with the current...

I'm the same way, right after you buy it= modifying the vehicle before the week is out.

Still not bad numbers.

I only dynoed my AWD Eclipse a few times because it was a bit of a PITA to setup and AWD dynos were rare and I had to drive a while to get to one. Before I sold it I was laying down 329awhp which was good for a mid 12 asl and 12.99999-13.2s@103mph up here at 5800ft asl. Still could hold off a Viper GTS in the 1/4.
