Exactly. Therein lies the problem. In order to do an accurate comparison, you would need the following:

Same car
Same dyno
Same ambient temps
Same fuel
Probably some other variables I'm not considering.

You don't need the same car, as long as they are both S60Rs, with the same filter/DP/exhaust you are fine.

But the big problem here is that dynos don't really mean anything, because they are just PREDICTIONS of real world performance. And we KNOW that how our cars perform on the dyno doesn't necessarily translate to how they perform in the real world (especially with inability to control Haldex variable). Everyone from Richard to Johann has talked about that.

What you really need is each of the cars with the same wheels/tires at a 1/4 mile track or at least with a G-Tech, run multiple acceleration runs with same driver and average results.

Or even if someone was to do what we did here, do multiple runs 1/4 mile runs in both directions with stock ECU tune on G-Tech, hit the "magic" button on the BSR PPC and do multiple runs again. Take an average and say - This tune showed an improvement of ... seconds 0-60 and ... seconds 1/4 mile with increase of ... mph trap speed.

I was quite satisified with BSRs results:



Problem is BSR is only one with a "magic button", so it would need to be people who are local to a tuner with a G-Tech. Do a couple of runs, take it into tuner, come out and do a couple of runs again.

The only problem with that is there would be a clear winner and the would hurt the competiton probably to the point the winner could hike up their price, or on the other hand make the competiton step it up.

If someone is better, they should be able to charge more...


What we have now is fairly large price discrepancies, with no objective comparison testing done...

But, at the Nurburgring will will have two stage 2 RICA V70Rs (+ FMICs), a Full Evolve/Powerchips Power Pack (3.5" DP, exhaust), and a BSR with Filter/DP/Exhaust.

BSR has already edged out the Evolve tune here, even with the BSR carrying 100 extra pounds more weight...

To much a driver thing at the Ring.

Oh, I was referring to doing autobahn races on the way there or back home...
