To help keep this area a little cleaner and information easier to find I set up an area just for kspz3 to post information and for people to ask questions about the site here.

That is true but most pull 106-109 at the rear wheel on most dyno's but each dyno is different and it should only be used as a base measurement. Some pipes like the bub pipes have been known to take a few ponies out as well.

Don't forget the heat. Ocala in July is not optimal dyno weather........ Also look at your readout and make sure they ran it all the way to 9000 rpm. I've seen some dyno operators wimp out at 8000 because they are used to TC88 motors and don't trust anything above 6K.
