Will book a session in a rolling road facility

It is apparent that road tests are not well regarded here. I've not considered running a test facility in the past, as I thought it would be expensive. Also I have done hundreds of road tests, with different vehicles, using the same roads and reasonably close conditions. But it will be good to get exact figures, and compare these against factory claims, and the cost is quite reasonable - much less than I had thought - about 40-50 ($64-$80) for a session. I would encourage more of you to consider it! It will also be good to see if there are any horsepower gains, as I have in the past relied on 0-60 times, which can be even more unreliable because of the number of variables. So I'm booking a session, and will show with pics, the results - mpg, power, and exhaust analysis. Thanks for the link, and the pfffft...
