For my 1000th post, here are my dyno results:

First of all, conditions weren't as good as I expected them to be. The temps were hovering around 85 degrees with 31% humidity. The fans were a mix of household and light industrial fans so the airflow was an issue which I'm sure Chrisk can confirm.

My numbers were around 320hp, 340 tq. SAE on 93 octane. I forgot to get the DRF files but will post them with SAE & STD correction once they email them to me. Had the airflow been better, I'm sure I would have been closer to 350+. The cool down time between runs was not sufficient either. The oil temps were running warmer than they should have been. Did I mention the guy who dyno'd the car works strictly on STI's?!

Anyway, turns out this place is known for low numbers. As previously mentioned, a bunch of local 335i folks participated in a dyno day and just about every single one of them turned out lower than expected numbers.

On another note, I hear there's an 80mph dyno fan in the area. I'm currently seeking this place out & will certainly run her again.
