After running a zillion combo's on Desktop Dyno I'm wondering how accurate it is. So far most of it makes sense, I just don't want to waste too much time trying to find the ultimate combination. Anyone compared this thing to real world results? I'm using it more to compare cam a vs cam b, compression changes and other stuff, not really expecting to get the numbers it's spittin out.

In my experience, the numbers are overly optimistic.

I use Engine Analyzer and PipeMax now.

There's a lot of information on this and other boards about this...as it usually comes up every month or two. Use the search function. The info also includes some tricks to increase the accuracy. It's mostly good for helping map cam trends...if you realize there's a point where the torque is overly optomistic as DD 2000 doesn't allow for port velocity.
