"Holy shit" is right.  Any body should be proud of that.  That should quiet down some of the people who say you can't make horsepower from these engines.

Great googly moogly. You are destined to embarrass quite a few people at the track.

That dyno sheet wouldn't quite down anybody I know cuz it clearly says "uncorrected"
I was initially really impressed by the 230hp number, but now that I've seen the sheet and the conditions the numbers were obtainded.....not so much.

I would throw that narrowband O2 setup in the garbage, the only thing helpful that it'll show you is how it's idling....LOL

It's a turbo car so conditions like altitude have less effect than a NA motor. Not really needing to "correct" those runs.

While the altitude will percentage wise be smaller for a turbo vs N/A, the total hp reduction would still be higher due to the fact each percentage will be worth more hp. Turbo cars will also be affected more by temps too.

Without "correction" you have no "baseline standard" to even try to compare to other dynos, it's bad enough when one dyno will give a 10% different reading then another one.

When I first read the OP original post saying "230 front wheel horsepower", I thought he meant he had 230WHP....LOL
In a later post, he says he's using a VJ11/Tbird turbo which means he was talking flywheel hp. Factor in SAE correction, I'd say he's got about 215-220hp at the crank.
