Not always, as you have shown. However, the mustang dyno is continuously applying load to the wheels... where as a dynojet is not once the rolllers have been put in motion. With all other factors the same, the mustang dyno should always read lower... but factors are never the same.

Computer settings account for Dyno numbers. You can only select certain settings which can vary the horsepower by 7-10whp from std, sae, uncorrected. Its not like you can just click and make the car Dyno at 200whp.

That and the way the load bearing dyno works is based of the entered vehicle weight, it calculates the amount of resistance that should be applied to the roller.... if you input an incorrect weight, you could very easily skew the results.

Another reason I like to see 1/4 mile numbers since if you can't get the ponies to the ground then horsepower numbers don't mean much.

Like the old joke: What do 500hp Supras and 900hp Supras have in common? 12 second 1/4 mile times.

LOL, back when I had my CRX with its stock D16A6 (108hp) and a SRI+cat-back I used to run mid 15's @ 88mph with 1.9-2 second 60' times. I would run against less skilled GSR and TypeR owners that had trouble keeping up and couldn't BELIEVE that I didn't have a motor swap.

What tires were you running since anything under 2.0 is pretty good with fwd.
My AWD Eclipse would nail 1.7s fairly consistently but the Type R was not easy to launch and was more in the 2.2 range.

I have to share...

Another local car shop with a dyno posted on their facebook wall a dyno graph of a stock 2013 Subaru BRZ....



Our Foci are more powerful (yes we have intake/exhaust or intake/exhaust/headers, but still.) I bet it weighs less but what would be the outcome in a drag race do you think?

Regarding the dyno graph, something is very strange (look at the dip in the torque curve). I would wait to see a few more dyno results before making any conclusions. Also, keep in mind that dyno numbers are not absolute by any means. FWIW, the BRZ likely has more drivetrain loss.

In general, I don't think comparing a modded car to an un-modded car has much meaning.

My goal is to be able to beat a stock BRZ in the quarter mile, and maybe give it run for the money on a road course that is abot 2 hours from me.
