CA Low HP on stock seq

This was from about a year ago, tuned by Karack (great guy btw) the car is faster than before but my numbers are pretty low. The dyno we were using is known to read lower than a Mustang or DynoJet. I was running stock seq twins, hks intake, hks twin ign amplifier, 3" dp, mp, catback, 850cc primary&secondary, tuned to 13psi. That day I suffered major heat soak though because of my incomplete v-mount(radiator and ducting wasn't installed in time), also had stock rubber intercooler pipes so boost was unstable at high rpm...btw this was on a stock motor with 120***miles, but good compression.

Now I've upgraded the pipes to aluminum pipes, installed radiator+ducts, and installed aem water/meth kit...looking to go for another re-tune after I street port the motor.

Go to a dynojet so you really know what the numbers are.

Just remember, A person who just looks at a dyno sheet and looks at the final number is a fool... A dyno is a great tuning tool, but the actual numbers should be used to see the power gain/loss on the same dyno.

Yeah, it's just hard to find time to drive all the way back to the bay area to do a dyno pull on the same dyno.
