[DML] Horsepower update

Hi Gang - I had an interesting experience today, spending the entire 
day with Winged1 on a chassis dyno.  I can't tell you why, because 
of a non-disclosure agreement that I had to sign.  If I told you, 
I'd have to ... well, you know.  In any event, after a bit of 
troubleshooting and tuning, Winged1 turned out a consistent series 
of full power runs, making 110.1 horsepower at the rear wheels (5750 
rpm), and  130.2 lb-ft of torque (3000 rpm).  Of note, the shop was 
quite warm (around 90 degrees in the sun), and the full power runs 
ran the entire spectrum from redline to near idle.  With the DPNW 
High Performance Fans and the three-row brass radiator, we didn't 
have even a slight tendency towards heating up.  The temperature 
stayed rock-soild throughout the day.  Got just a hint of detonation 
near the maximum torque part of the curve.  The A/F readings showed 
a bit of a drop-off in fuel delivery right in there, with good ratio 
readings on either side of that point.  The dyno technician felt 
that it was due to inherent limitations in the Bosch CIS.  
Thoughts?  Just another day in paradise.
