why would they have to divide by pi if those were the readings from the computer.

It was a joke. Something is obviously not working right. IIRC, dynos only measure torque vs. rpm, and it calculates HP. Or vice-versa. The problem may lie there.

probably a tcf setting error.

if you want to know your actual torque (assuming thats your actual hp) multiply your hp by 5252 and divide by the rpm you want.

Why does that dyno only go to 87mph? Did you dyno your car in like 2nd gear or something?

you need rpm to calculate torque.
