I read with interest the articles in the March and April issues on installing a pro charger in an o5 C6.  I was somewhat surprised with the dyno results of 519 rwhp with 11 lb boost.  However the very next issue the C6 pumped out 565 rwhp which I thought would be more in line with that much boost.  I can't help but wonder where the extra 46 rwhp came from?

Two different dynos. The 565-rwhp was on our in-house Dynojet, which consistently reads higher than many other brands including the Mustang dynamometer we used at Torq. Most likely you are used to Dynojet numbers rather than Mustang, Land & Sea, etc. So we didn't gain any power per say, it was just a different measurement. Also keep in mind that on supercharged cars, the boost will increase the cooler the air gets. And that is something that SAE correction can not account for.
