Folks, let me reiterate a few points once again:

1. Nobody is saying this was a "fair" comparison (stock versus modded setup)
2. I'm not looking for "easy" prey and picking on stock cars to slap around
3. This impromptu comparison was done very ad-hoc immediately after our dynos to validate or invalidate my dyno numbers because they are perplexing

Can we get off the topic of "a chevy/gm can be modded for $5 and pull out 100 rwhp" discussion. We all know this folks. I personally know Fubar will go and have his car modded by this coming weekend probably and bring an entirely new game face to the car meet next weekend and possibly show me a thing or two.

I'm not sure why, but whenever runs like this are posted the three most common comments are:

1. Congratulations to the winning car
2. How the losing car cannot be compared to the winning car because it was half price of the winning car + mods
3. For $5000 the losing car will be made into a NHRA drag qualifying funny car

Somehow this thread, which was meant to focus on the confusion and inadequacy of dynos for the stroker, turned into a pissing match and immature behaviour. I'm even amazed at how people from the same marque are getting shots in on each other and becoming defensive, rather than supportive.

Is this what the M5board has turned in to?

Always a gentleman... I do not plan on modding the CTS for a few weeks at least. I want to get the 5000 mile break-in put to bed. However, I would like to run again soon. Hopefully with a little more experience under my belt I will be able to manage the transmission better.

It would also be nice to see you run against a stock M5 (if such a thing exists in DFW).

Call me crazy (or for this matter... anything else if you would like) but I think vbox 60-130mph times and 1/4 mile track times are both relevant in testing the performance of cars.

The 60-130mph times are a great simulation of a highway roll-on. It is more precise given that it takes away the advantage of someone who jumps/better reaction time and for the most part isolates the car against the clock.

The 1/4 mile track times are a great simulation for the old stoplight drag. This would heavily rely on traction and skill getting off the line. But it is also great for demonstrating the impact of torque (provided you have enough traction). The 1/4 mile trap speed also will show you how much power a car is putting down.

Here is my prediction.... Stroker M5 will run a lower ET on drag radials than the ASR NOS M5...but the ASR NOS M5 will trap higher. ET is primarily a function of the launch...and the ASR M5 is not hitting the bottle until it is down the track.

RaceMX-M3, please let the ASR vs Stroker discussion go: we've been there already and it is going nowhere.

My guess is your car wasn't measured properly on the dyno. If you have a Dinan stroker engine rated at something over 600 hp, then you should be putting at least 500 horsepower to the wheels. That would be the number that would explain the video results.

Agreed dynos does not makes sense but mostly real world tests do.

455 rwhp: 2006 Silver Grey M5 (my previous fully modded M5)
457 rwhp: 2008 Dinan Stroked M5 (mine)
466 rwhp: 2008 Dinan Stroked M5 (mine)

So as you can see it makes no sense. I obviously have way more than 11 rwhp compared to even my previous 2006 Silver Grey M5 and way more than 456 rwhp which I dyno'd Saturday along with the CTS-V.

You just cannot compare dynos, even from the same manufacturer, at different locations. In addition, I guess you need decent airflow for my stroker setup to show it's true numbers.

If my setup is predicated on using larger intakes, MAFs, throttle bodies, and displacement to make power, then it would stand to reason I need better airflow to see the true numbers on a dyno. Just my speculation.

Regards,

Darren

The delta in airflow pumping capacity would then be the difference in the volume of air moved at the 8200 rpm red line of the S85 and the 7200 rpm red line of the S62. That works out to about 14% if I've done the math correctly
