No I've not had the ranger on a dyno. I'll tell you this though. I agree with there being a HUGE DIFFERENCE. The stock timing curve is very conservative even for 87 octane.
And on 93shell I've got the curves (charts actually) tweaked based on knock sensor activity. Lets just say that in a few areas.. my timing for 93 octane is doubled. The increase in part throttle power is amazing. This ranger runs much stronger than a lot of the V8 1970s cars I grew up with.
btw, don't get caught up in power numbers. Making peak numbers on a dyno only get you into the ball park. And more importantly you don't spend much time at all at WOT and at those rpms. Daily drivers spend 99% of the time at lower rpms and part throttle. IMO thats far more important for the tune to make power and for the auto tranny to have just the right shift feel and TQ convertor lock up points.
