I think it is safe to say that Litos gets the readings that he does in the shop that he goes to because in Houston, the conditions are inherently biased toward warm, highly-humid air from the gulf, and they probably have some edict to test all cars in 3rd gear (or some such), instead of the typical 1:1 gear. So their readings are going to be on the low side of the average, but still technically "typical". Unfortunately, Litos does have difficulty understanding that a world does extend beyond Houston. You anger him when you in any way imply that different readings are possible than the ones he can get in Houston.

It's not that I really needed 370 hp...but having 150+ hp riding shotgun at a moment's bidding w/o a 6000 rpm moonshot is what makes me feel like I'm in the right car for me. The roar of a v8 seals the deal!

The Google keyword is "ethanol-free gas". The truth is coming to light. Check out http://pure-gas.org/

Actually they would have needed to dyno around 312ish to be what dodge claims the hp to be. I thought u read the article. Most ppl dyno 330 or higher

So sad for Litos...having to live with the notion that beyond the confines of Houston, a world of RT's exist that routinely dyno higher than he can ever get in his hometown with poor DA. His only recourse is to crash every single topic to establish that he visits the "dyno of all truth" and no other dyno reading shall contest that. He has an entire car club go to that same dyno so as to further reinforce the premise of this "dyno of all truth". It doesn't change the reality that if a dyno gives one car a low read, sending 10 cars through there will simply achieve 10 low reads...hence proving nothing other than he's got a dyno that reads low (whether it be stemming from process, DA, or just plain calibration).

Now you see the game he is playing. Now you see the motivation behind his obsession to establish that the RT couldn't possibly be underrated, when for all intents and purposes, it shouldn't even matter to him since he has moved on to an SRT8, anyway.

You all realize your aruging over 10hp right?? The DNYO is a tool used to tune cars, not to measure a cars performance. Track times and road courses are for that.

So it shouldn't matter if somebody declares "388 hp", right?...or does that bother you?

What a weak comeback. Per usual practices of a "politician", you parse words to build a premise that was never even suggested. You are dishonest at the very core.
