I would of figured more also
Lol, yeah... not much I can do about that... I mean with the TC off it can spin the tires through first gear when it was stock...Whoa, hold the phone-that's WITH an intake as well?
You need to take your car back to stock and have your dealership fix whatever is wrong with it.
The VP of FSWerks was one of many who have said to dyno at 1:1, in a post called "How to dyno your Focus ST properly". Of course we don't have ST's, but still.Mainly because your doing the runs on the street , second if there is something wrong the chances of damaging your engine is less because it goes through the RPM quicker
Who ever said you need to dyno on only 1:1 gear is mistaken
Dyno charts are rarely misleading. They can be done improperly or lied about, but a line is a line. It is only showing what it reads based on the inputs. Either you can read it or you can't.That dyno is a little misleading. If the trans was in Sport, and manually shifted, the stock tune probably would have made 140-145hp, and the tuned line, revved to 7k+ probably would have made 160-165. I'm impressed. When I get the chance, I'll definitely be getting this tune.
Let me explain to you now why you are being argumentative and closed minded instead of reading what I wrote and understanding.Dyno charts are rarely misleading.

The transmission has absolutely nothing to do with the power the engine is delivering, at least not in the terms you're explaining. Engaging Sport mode won't cause it to have more power, and you don't shift when doing a dyno run. Considering the fact that this is a discussion about a dyno run then I can assure you that he was in S+ if his car has it equipped.
And we can speculate power to whatever random rpm range we want (not logically, but just for fun) but that has nothing to do with the tune. His car made X power at Y rpm-period. You are literally already looking at what he got with the tune; you can't just add more tune.
Nobody is saying anything bad about the tune anyways so there no real reason to come and try to defend it. What we're talking about are how low the numbers are comparatively to other modded Mk3's, both before and after. If people were bashing the tune they would only be discussing the after.
No, it wasn't-you don't shift on a dyno. You are wrong.Let me explain to you now why you are being argumentative and closed minded instead of reading what I wrote and understanding.
THE PEAK HORSEPOWER NUMBERS on that dyno chart are misleading.
The car was short shifted. PERIOD.
