    Just thought I would post this up for anyone who may be interested. My local car club put on a benefit dyno day for a member whose wife has been diagnosed with cancer. Just doing my part to help out with the 360.

    I have to say I was a little disapointed in the numbers. This is a 99 Euro with test pipes and Tubi exhaust. Made 291 RWHP, only 40 more than my 90 348ts made last fall. There are a few bugs with the car that need to be worked out, possibly this led to a lower number. Another 2001 F1 360 made 301 RWHP. on a different day, and I am unaware of the exhaust system used on the other 360.

    Definitely something wrong there, my (Euro) 360 with Capristo 3 knocked out 393 BHP!

    Sounds like we are comparing two different figures. Some are posting wheel horsepower, others flywheel horsepower.

    Diferent dynos will read differently ....... the one the OP used seems to read conservatively. Comparing cars on the same dyno using the same 'correction' standard will give the best numbers to 'compare' with.

    Agree completely! The dyno controversy rages on all the hp-oriented forums I'm aware of. I would add same day to the above, since temperature, humidity, and barometric pressure all influence engine power. A knowledgeable dyno operator can correct for those, but even appropriate weather correction factors are debated.
