Thanks. I thought that it might clear up some things up.
Now, there may need to be SOME correction factor for a turbo charged engine, but NOT the SAE correction factor. SAE Correction is designed to be applied to N/A engines. Tadd and Robert both have run faster 1/4 mile times at lower altitudes.
Our next Dyno event here in Idaho is in August. I will be running twice, once in the morning and then later in the day. I will get both SAE AND uncorrected graphs. I know that our last event varied the CF between 9 and 11% based on the time of day. I want to see if my Uncorrected changes as the temp outside increases. I'm willing to bet that it doesn't change much if at all. But say I am putting down 391 uncorrected. This last dyno event could have had me at 426 or 434 depending on when I dynoed that day.
I also know that the Dynojet we are using can't load us up very well. There was a cummins truck that was there with twins on it that only put down like 675 at our event. This same truck put down over 800 at an event in Washington earlier this year. I assume that the place in WA is pretty respectable because Maddog was there and took top honors at that event at over 1,000HP.
