In Ed's defense he held out for true numbers more than most did, and people around this forum are starting to call their local dynojets and 'wheels-off' variants "heart breakers".

The last people I knew of using real mustang type numbers were Akuma, EQ, and STM. Pretty sure Akuma is on the dynojet calibration now too for the same reason.... I guess, though, if other shops are using the inflated numbers it makes it harder to compete when you say they can make "300" and the other place is saying they can make "350".

Ah well.
Yep that's exactly right. I was tired of explaining how dyno's read and why mine is lower blah blah. I'm also tuning a lot of different platforms lately and all those guys just want the big numbers they're used to seeing. At the end of the day I don't care about the absolute numbers, and the bigger numbers make the customers happy. Ultimately my job is to make customers happy, so I finally gave in and changed with the times. It seems there are only 1-2 shops clinging on to the low reading calibrations. I held off long enough and finally decided to make the switch with the new year.
