Oh, oops, I was under the impression the ProDyne was a Mustang.

Again, call me a skeptic, but these dyno sheets don't give any indication of what settings were put into the dyno. They look to be tuning runs. If you want to highlight the power of this engine, in a way comparable to other cars, shoot out mode on the dyno dynamics.

I have no knowledge of the mustang to be honest, I think they are both eddy current, but as far as whether they are made by the same manufacturer I don't know. I had access to a prodyne in my late teens, used to tune the XY sedan and GT Capri on it lol.

You are correct E46 coupe, dyne systems do make the mustang dyno, it's been 19 years since I played with the prodyne lol

if the sky is called blue, there will be skeptics, fact of life. There are about 5 million places you can discuss dyno characteristics where everyone is a big mad dyno engineer expert.

The best advice i can give is when tuning or playing with your own car, no matter what dyno, your looking for delta difference improvement, before and after under as close as possible conditions, ideally same day which obviously sometimes isnt possible. That's exactly what i did and started with the typical 250 rwhp, hence can be certain of the improvements and tune.


Obviously s54 owners can tune there own cars as specified before.

m52, m52tu and m54 owners also have a good solution running stock ms41, ms42 and ms43 computers.
ive personally used the below and it works very well.

Anyone who has spent good coin on aftermarket blowers/turbos etc and has loaded the base mail tune provided by them, you will be loosing significantly. Besides ess and vf kits (i cant comment on ones i have not seen HPF etc) which deliver a hell of a lot less than the 4 million HP they promise on the box. If i had a blower the first thing i would do is throw any software which came with it and get to work on tuning the kit for your car and our conditions specifically.

Not only will the gains be significant but you will be in full control of your own tune for future mods.

The skies aren't blue in Melbourne today, I can assure you of that

I understand the delta difference etc, but you have not shown proof of a delta difference by showing the dyno sheets you have. I am even more skeptical because of the dyno sheet in your for sale thread for the wrecked car. I am not doubting your abilities to achieve this, but your data supporting your claims is very inconclusive. Hell, if you proved to me that you can custom tune as well as you say you can, I would be asking if your willing to come to melbourne for a weekend and tune mine!!!

and i would politely decline. i'm not a commercial operator nor do i offer any services whatsoever. Besides free advice from my own experience to members who i can and feel like helping, and that's a daily occurrence.

yeah sweet, i haven't been able to find a decent XDF file for my version - so i need to get into WinOLS and start identifying maps. Never used it before but had a quick go at it and it seems straightforward enough, provided you know what you are looking for. That m3f table is very handy.

Nice graph!

My stock CS put down same power on Mainline Dyno (the real "heartbreaker") in March 2012 and March 2010.

If you ran it on a dynojet, you would be around 310whp jimmy.

A friend of mine owns a twin retarder Mainline and yes they are absolute heartbreakers.

A very fresh S54 put down around the same numbers on it.
For reference a CSL put down 311 on a Mainline.
