i probly woulda been expectin a bit more. 157 rwkw seems preety much standard.
but then again thers a whole argument about dynos only bein a tuning device not a perfect power rating instrument yada yada yada.. take it to a strip see how it goes.

Perhaps your tuner has one of those unfriendly dyno's giving lower power readings. If you take it somewhere else you may very well get a higher reading. Doesnt mean it makes more power, just dynos arent dynos. You really need a before and after reading for comparisons.

157 is pretty low, regardless of dyno for a BA manual with cams...

+1 for this, the fact that you have done cams should def be higher, i would take it somewhere else at least for a dyno run not necessarily for another tune

ive herd this alot dynos arent accurate, easiest way to really tell is before and after dyno runs and before and after quarter mile runs

You've got what, 180 fwkw? You'd be after about 150rwkw from a stock manual for the dyno to be somewhat accurate.....

i was just thinkin about the time topgear had to buy an old supercar eg,ferrari somthing like that for under a set price and one of the challenges was to dyno them and find out how much power their supercar had lost over the years and it was a rediculous amount, but chances are the cars were measured at the flywheel from new, and they measured at the rears on the show, so it was all s**t rite?

yes, it was an episode full of s**t - they compared bhp new to rwhp, and then said oh how crap, i've lost XX hps!! when it reality, they were pretty close to the mark.
