There definitely will be some variances on everyone's dyno numbers using the same kit. You have variables like current day's ambient temperature, type of dyno used (dynojet in Uli's case so higher than if you used a Mustang dyno), and condition of engine. I'd use dynos more of a relative measure.
I didnt bother to have a compression test done. It wouldnt leak oil but it sure did like to drink it. I was just using the dyno numbers i got for a base reference as to what one might expect with that many km on a motor.
