    As Mooser and A20 RYM stated, acurracy would be a big stumbling point in truly knowing if your motor produced more BHP, but it would still be nice to give it a try and hear the growl of my motor as it redlines inside the shop!!!
    Yeahhh!! Give it a go! I would love to see the results!!

    Is your car standard?

    there's a lot of variables on a rolling road that can contribute to the power output given

    a lot of it is to do with how the operator sets it up for the car

    i witnessed an 110,000 mile 1.2 16v corsa with a stainless backbox making 93bhp on the rollers....an 18bhp increase over standard :

    1999 Civic Coupe 2.2VTEC Conversion - Sold!
    2002 Astra SRi 2.2 - Sold!
    1991 Celica GT-Four ST185 - Sold!
    1997 BMW 316i Compact Winter Beater!

    We had a RR day with our Mazda MPS's and the variance between what should have been near-identical cars was marked. Some of the variances were done to service state, fuelling (i.e. brand of fuel) and the mechanical sympathy with which the car had been driven. I think the variance with the dyno is outwith your control, so probably the best thing you can do is try to keep your car in the same state when you get it rolled (e.g. freshly serviced, fresh plugs and leads etc) and get tested at the same location by the same tech to give you as menaingful comparison as possible.
