1-not all dynos give accurate readouts
2-motor could be down on compression (rings or valves)
3-air filter needs change?
4-any number of things
How many k's has the car done, and what condition the motor is in will be the major factors

hmm that was quick thanks for ur help. the car has done 225,000kms and i am the 3rd owner of the car and its got a bit of a rough idle in park but in drive its a bit better so im guessing it could be a valve not seating right or something
