does any out know much about this motor. the numbers seem rediculously high compared to my monster stock pro. I know number don't tell the whole story so i am after opinions on it from those who have used one and how it compares to the monster.

Haha, when I saw "PINNACLE GOLD" I thought you were talking about Golf Balls!!!

Yeah, different dynos different numbers. Heck, even different examples of the same brand/model dyno you'll get slightly different figures.

I think the current lot of Trinity motors (~50-60W) are done on a Fantom Facts machine. This is a flywheel-inertia machine, non-load.

The older Trinitys eg P2K have stickers that say ~110-120W+, I think they were done on a CE Turbo. This is a load-dyno using a slave motor.

That 78% efficiency is bit suss though... wonder how they worked that out.

Most stockers are only ~50%, they are very inefficient due to the huge timing but that's ok - we've got 3300 cells now. Even mods don't usually break 70% efficiency but.
