Yeah the mustang dyno uses real road compensation, assuming the shop has that enabled. This shop does have it enabled. As the car builds speed, it's loaded even more, matching what happens on the road. 3rd or 4th gear, it shouldn't be much difference.
Usually you want to run in the gear that's closest to 1:1
On my car, 3rd gear is the closest 1:1 gear (tall gearing ftw)

I'm planning to do more pulls and simulate a 1/4 mile run on the dyno to check for knock.
I'll also do separate pulls in 3rd and 4th gear to compare the numbers Smile

why didnt you ever get tuned on e85, those hybrid turbos like mine really seem to wake up when you throw some corn at em.

My original plan was to run E85. Then I moved to Waukesha. Hardly any stations around.
Plus, I take my car out to road courses regularly, and there are no E85 stations around. Considering I go through over a tank of gas on track, I would need to bring 30 gallons of E85 to the track, which is more hassle than it's worth for me right now, since I'm renting and no good place to store a bunch of fuel cans. lol

It's a bummer because our E85 tunes have turned out awesome on Clint's and Cody's car.

Great numbers. Sucks about the e85. I'm seeing quiet a bit of it around here in Madison now. Excited to get my tune in. That shop looks pretty legit. What's the next mod then?

Yea for the type of racing you do I think running E85 would be extremely hard to keep the tank filled. I probably got about 5-7 mpg when I did that lapping day.

Next mod is some brake ducts and then just having fun on-track making people go "wtf was that red thing"
Also one of my good friends agreed to let me co-drive his 400+ whp STI for track days. So that will be fun.
