I agree with the general chorus sung here.

That's about 40HP higher than the "norm," all things considered. It just triggers everyone's BS meter almost instantly. Nature of the beast.

In saying that hover, neither myself or anyone else here has any credible reason to doubt your claims, so, I'm calling a user error or a calibration issue with the dyno [or some other type of abnormality], as opposed to you blowing smoke up everyone's arse.

Absolutely, there are manufacturing tolerances to take into consideration here as they do happen because no two vehicles' HP and/or TQ readings are a mirror image of one another [and they shouldn't be]; however, something like a 40HP elevation over the "norm" is a considerable gain that should raise question marks with the methods used to achieve such numbers.

Best wishes.

Do you have the 6 speed or new 8 speed transmission.

I wonder if the new 8 speed is more efficient and absorbs less horsepower due to less frictional losses.

I think you're maybe mistaken somehow. If it were true you'd have the most powerful virgin 4'th gen known. That is why most are suspect of the numbers. I'd like to see you show us wrong. That would be awesome, but you need to show some pics.

Well, those Dyno #'s do seem to be high considering what others are coming up with and your truck is near stock. One factor is a shop Dyno will probably be more accurate than one that gets toted around to car shows. Being in Orlando, as I am - there is Titan Motorsports near the airport that does all custom performance and has a shop dyno. http://www.titanmotorsports.com/

I used them once for my 2003 Corvette that I had a Pro Charger & long tube headers on and it appeared to be right on. 3 Dyno runs cost me $75.

A drag slip will show the real results i dont read into dyno numbers that much they are just numbers. Its not that hard to post pics or even vids on here for everyone too see, as most are baffled by your results... Not trying to hate just wanting more info thats all.

But doesn't the drag slip show...numbers?

Just messing with ya.


But I agree with the general consensus here in that the dyno was the determining factor.

After all, isn't HP just a theoretical number based off of torque anyways?
