I think this statement has more to do with answering your question in this thread.

As much as most like to think the 3.3L TURBO motor is a high performance race motor it really is more a torque monster like a tractor. Where was the racing program based on this motor – there wasn’t one. His formula appears to be the factory’s basic tractor engine configuration to an extreme. How? His site tells and shows you, with good old bore out and smooth out everything impacting fuel flow and mass airflow.

I see him observing years of factory performance development (plus adding his own) in exhaust and intake flowing, fueling and ignition that was established before today’s electronic controls made tuning ”easy”. Add that to boosting the engine to its knock limits everywhere. You can see his instrumentation and it suggests he monitors and optimizes each cylinder.

Concerning his claims based on an engine dyno, I’d go for engine dyno data over chassis any day.
