I knew that Dodge cars rated their HP very close to the wheel HP (i.e. SRT-4 actually do dyno down to the wheels of their stated HP). However, I wasn't sure if Chrysler did the same practice (Parent company of Dodge).

I knew my deep down my heart that my 04 5-Speed dynoed close to the stated HP [] (Well, at least now I know for sure ).
Hey PTGT Boy, did you read the HotRod link I posted. Pretty amazing what they did internally in our motors,(crank scraper, forged connecting rods etc.) And as they said, same motor as the SRT4.

Don't try to read too much into dyno numbers for different cars, run on different dynos, with different technicians, under different ambient temp & humidity. You will potentially see rather large differences in HP and Torque numbers.

I believe it was Sport Compact Magazine that recently did a test of dyno's (as opposed to a dyno test) where they took the same vehicle to 7 different dyno's, all different manufacturers, and got 7 different HP numbers. Remember, this was using the SAME VEHICLE, and the high to low swing was over 50HP! Yep, you read that right, the same vehicle on different dyno's showed as much as a 50HP difference.

The only time I trust, or would really even use, dyno numbers would be when comparing mods to a given vehicle. Even then I'd want to see a series of pulls in stock or "before" configuration to make sure things are consistent, and then a series of "after" pulls to judge the benefits of the mod.

Thanks, but I'm just reading as much as I can, trying to learn and cut through all the BS that's out there.
