I'm fully aware of differences between the various dyno numbers. I've not seen anything that suggests a dynojet factors in 20% over factory crank numbers..... I know that there is usually a 10% diff between a SAE number and the dynojet number.. and have seen 15% differences between a dyno dynamics unit and the dynojet number. What engine dyno did BMW use to figure out their numbers ? Maybe my drivetrain losses are less than others because I use the magical super synth lube LOL... (just kidding btw)

either way..maybe not correct to compare to the factory crank numbers..but this was a baseline..from which I hope to optimize a few parameters...and then at some point..go back on the same dynojet see how it did...
