Ah Dinan cars....beautifully engineered but the numbers were ALWAYS optimistic. OK sure, I'd rather trade some bhp for a car that actually runs right, but the dyno sheets were consistently generous.
For example, in their old literature they always listed horsepower as "Dinan Horsepower" and torque as "Dinan Torque". That Dinan torque saw a full 100 lb/ft. per liter on their naturally aspirated E30 M3 stroker.
Go ahead. Show me any naturally aspirated car, street or race, that makes 100 lb/ft. per liter on pump gas. Church Automotive sheets on K-series Hondas/Acuras will not be accepted.
