    HUH???? I'm not following you on this one??? Low front tire pressure affects HP on a rear wheel dyno???

    Actually, the simplest formula to figure flywheel horsepower off of a chassis dyno for a 5-speed car assuming a 15% loss is: RWHP /.85 = FWHP

    OK I guess I worded it wrong. I meant rear wheel pressure affects the dyno. Front wheel preessure affects rolling resistance in the quarter.

    You're right TR03Mach1. Only one calculation this way, I guess I was thinking of doing it in my head. It's easy for me to figure out 15% of say 320 (48) and subtract that from 320 as opposed to dividing 272 by .85 in my head, but then again I may not be the smartest apple on the tree lol..

    I was also there on March 6th. I thought the 5spd were averaging about 271 rwhp bone stock, but I wasn't keeping that close of tabs on things. Don't be shocked if you actually drop a couple points on the dyno with the O/R X pipe. Many people have for some reason. I guess the Mach likes at least a little back pressure.

    I have a set of the Flows welded into my stock cat-back with 3 1/2 inch tips. Sounds really good, no drone. I just ordered the Prochamber today...if anybody wants the Prochamber Nino Sport is offering it Jet-Hot coated, and at a good price for the first 5 orders!!! I can't wait to get mine.

    Hey where are you at in Naperville?? Just wondering b/c I have not seen another mach on the street in our area. I live in South Naperville and work at Washington and Diehl. I think it would be cool to pass another mach on the street!

    I live off of Eola and N. Aurora Rd. I live on the border of Naperville and Aurora. I don't drive the Mach much during the week, I have an every day car, but if it's nice on the weekends I'll take it out. I've had it 2 months now and it only has 830 miles on it.

    EDIT: I work off of Diehl too....this summer I'm sure you'll see me.

Well mine is an 03Azure blue so I will be sure to wave if I see ya out and about! I am sure I will run into you one of these days!

    I just wanted to get a good idea for price shopping- What have you all been charged for installation of your new exhaust. I'm looking to get a Magnapack exhaust (about $600) and wanted to know what it would cost to have it installed????
