Trying to understand dyno
1 Attachment(s)
Hi i am after some help on what time on a 1/4 mile i could expect from a 1974 dodge challenger looking at the attached dyno print and also what comments on the bhp verses torque,

I dyno sheet will never tell you what your car will actually run on the drag strip. Understand although many people use the dyno to detemermine HP the dyno's actual purpose is to fine tune a motor.

You can go and use all these internet mph/ET conversion charts etc...and you will never know for sure until you run the car. Three are too many variables between a motor,tranny,converter ,chassis to give a straight out answer.

And the most variable, is the HUMAN element !
