Also depends on the "accuracy" of the dyno (if there's any such thing) :)

No idiot forumula at all.
I ran a 14.73 with 147 rwkws on the same dyno .Before those mods a few years and 10 dyno runs I got 141 rwkws on each run.This dyno is very reliable. Now with mods I got to 170.1.

From the 14.7 run I now have 20 more rwkws.

Southy.It was a slippery night that night.I got 3 runs .2 with no traction and then this one.14.773 92.71 MOH.

A few weeks later me and fordfreak went racing.He can confirm that I did run 1 14.9 and around 5 more 14.8"s back to back with nearly full tank of fuel.Why what is unusual about my time?
