If you want to compare to most everyone elses dyno numbers, then choose a Dynojet.
I personally believe a Mustang Dyno or any other eddy current dyno is a better choice for tuning although you will see lower numbers.
Every dyno brand will show different numbers. Which one is most accurate? I have no idea. I do know that a Dynojet will show more power that the car really puts down to the wheels, but it is very repeatable, and that is really all that matters.
When the Dynojet was desgined, they were not seeing the power numbers that they wanted to see so they added a correction factor to boost the numbers. They did not realize that they were probably not seeing the correct numbers because the Motorcycle they were using was over-rated from the factory.
Any Dyno should be good. Just stick with the same brand if you are going to mod your car or you may be shocked to see that you lost 50hp after a cam swap!

You want the highest numbers??? DynoJet.
You want the most accurate??? 1/4 mile strip.

That's really not what they are for; they ar ejust a tool for tuning.
You made 288rwhp pre-mod, and went back and put down 317. That's a 10% increase. If you had dyno'd 300-305rwhp on a dynojet you'd be at 330-335rwhp going by the % increase. The numbers are meaningless except to show that you found a gain. Don't let them get you hung up.

Frost is right it is just a tunning tool, If you had two mechanics lets say John Lingenfellter everyone knows that name, and say John Ogden (who) and you gave Lingenfellter craftmans tools and you gave Ogden Snap on tools.
Who would you want working on your car same thing with a Dyno its the guy running and tunning it, if you had 100hp then tunned and left with 30 more hp and ran great he did his job. Just my 2 cents on dyno discussions.
