Just got back from the DYNO
So next to my work the new garage that opened up had a grand opening today and had a DYNO there from 12-8pm. i was there all day and saw some pretty crazy vehicales. 95% were all diesel trucks 'cause that's the area I live in but regardless, the highest car there was a 2013 5.0 Mustang. Was brand spankin new and put down 336rwhp. Now this was a 'mustang' dyno, or the rolling loaded chassis ones. Basically just the back wheels got backed up onto ramps and yadda yadda. I was told these were more accurate but generally because of that, put down lower numbers than most people predict or that they'd get on say, a dynojet.
Regardless, I got a 2002 WS6. I have done these exact things,
K&N filter, Lid, smooth bellow, p&p TB with the bump stop mod, all free mods, 3" catback exhaust with no muffler, eibach coil springs, relocating brackets for the LCAs, UMI PHB, Hypertech Max Eneregy Tune, and 4.10s. I'll be getting the chart emailed to me in a day or so and didn;'t see the torque, but I got 327.1rwhp. I felt like if I changed my plugs (which I purchased but didn't get around to, it's got 70k on the odo and idk if they've every been changed) and cleaned the filter (which I haven't in 25kmiles) then maybe it'd be a little higher but for no headers (also have purchased but not installed yet) or a proper tune i was pretty pleased. The guy said he dyno's these exact things all the time and guessed it'd say 285. He was extremely impressed. I know he was familiar with them because he pointed out even all the tiny free mods like the TB bump stop and TB bypass and stuff. Sorry for raving on, I was just stoked. I'll post the chart when i get it

Thanks bud, I appreciate that. It was at least 80 degrees out too, and in ohio so probably pretty humid too. I think the high was 86. normally my car is detailed every single couple days but it's been raining literally every other day so it was pretty dirty haha. Everyone there who knew me knows that's odd :P. It's usually spotless.

Good job, now you have a benchmark to go against. Thanks for the info on the 5.0. I had my car dynod when I first got it to see that all was working as it was supposed to. It was stock except for the TB bypass, descreen, and lid, and it put down 324 rwhp, 338 rwtq. I think it is about 360 now. Mods in sig. And I like the blacked out lights.

Thanks bud. Yeah that'd be a good starting base. And every light on my car is blacked out :P. EVERY light.

I guess the dyno I was on was a Dyno Dynamics one. But its basically a mustang dyno. Much more conservative than most DynoJets.
