probably gonna go with a 39. will it hurt anything to go with a 44mm WG and with a turbo that is JUST big enough to get me to 450 on boost alone, or maybe 500 if i push it? because i am thinking really hard about just spraying to make up the difference on those rare occasions.

i would like to get there on a mustang dyno just because i know they read lower than the dynojets.

44/46mm is for the lower boost levels. the lower the boost the more waste gate you need. so yes you will need on or it will creep boost like chris car.

also do it on a dynojet. you can make a mustang dyno read hi or low, all depends on the operator

Because double the fittings, 2 or 3 pumps, surge tank, hat plus the same needed for a return. That being said it will be good and safe to have it and hope is feasable.

Mustang dyno are eddy current dynos which dynojet aren't excep the new lcx models that just came out. But then again you really can't use a dyno to measure power since every dyno is different. All you are looking for is an improvement.

yea we know this, but mustang dyno also use calculations entered by the user for the eddy current to apply a certain load. you mess up calculations you mess up the graph etc. all dyno ready different but when most of the high hp guys use dynojets, then use a dynojet to compare numbers.

If the shop doesn't know how to use a dyno then they shouldn't have one.
But tuning on a dynojet vs mustang dyno is night and day difference. But that's my experience.
