2008 Dinan Stroker M5 versus 2009 Cadillac CTS-V
+ YouTube Video
ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.

Both cars dyno'd 456rwhp on Classic BMW's dynodynamics this Saturday. The CTS-V showed 450+ rwtq though and my stroker only posted 330+ rwtq.

Watch the video and we can discuss afterwards...

Darren, you kill'ed him:M5thumbs: thanks for posting.

Thanks Gustav. Has nothing to do with aerodynamics though since we started at 45 mph. I believe it comes down to the fact that the Dinan Stroker is making power when there's proper air flow.

Wow. Apparently numbers dont tell the whole story. Darren your car is awesome! Great win. Thanks for the video!

Nice run, Darren; thanks for the vid! I think this might actually support Dinan's argument that a high flow fan is necessary for accurate dyno readings when looking at some of their mods. There is absolutely no way that your car is producing only 456rwhp. I am a bit concerned, however, as the stroker has dynoed much higher than that in the past.

Anyway, this does go to show that real world results are ultimately those that really matter.
