I surmise I would be at 436-440 whp with the Cobb race map if I were on this dyno. I dynoed 373whp STD on Cobb stage2+FMIC aggressive on this low reading dynojet which would be around 403-405 whp on this dyno in Cali.

Hotrods secret is weight reduction through seat removal, unsprung weight drop through lightweight wheels and favorable conditions. No secret behind that.

We NY/NJ guys may be at sea level or better, but we routinely see 40-100% humidity, something the west coast guys almost never see.
I'm near sea level. But only a few miles from the ocean, so humidity is definitely not considered low here. Foggy very often, dew on the car in the morning leaving it soaking wet. Many of my tests were done on fairly damp surfaces from the fog/humidity. But definitely the best conditions are on the lower humidity days. But I also have record breaking numbers in ~90% humidity. Also, as I have shown, my stock numbers were right in line with magazine times.
