I know those numbers means nothing without baseline. I just was wondering if those gains is sufficien enough. Bcause the guy in dyno shop (know him for a while) he rather make car safe than "top of power".
As well i was a litle surprized how unsuficient COBB maps are, if car pulled 248whp with stage 2 map ,
Lets say dyno is mistaken by 10hp so car makes 260whp with stage 2 map. And this map gives 20hp gain (i hope at least 20hp ) , so stock car will show 240whp , WHAT ??! 305hp on crank and it lost 65hp in powertrain ?!
Well .... Whatever car is fast.
AWD system are around 20-25% drivetrain loss. this number can change due to mods done.

Cobbs maps are a "one size fits all" deal. It is better to get a fitted cap than a one size fits all cap. Same thing for cars.
