SAE J1349 Revision JUN90 corrections are preferred to STD and uncorrected.  
bullet

SAE corrects the run to the following atmospheric conditions:
bullet

29.235" Hg, 77 deg F, 0 % relative humidity, 0 altitude

bullet

Cf = 1.18 * (29.235 / (BP - Vp) * (T + 460) ^ 1/2 / 537) - 0.18
bullet

Cf = correction factor, BP = barometric pressure, Vp = vapor pressure, T = temperature in degrees Fahrenheit?

bullet

SAE can return a lower rwhp than uncorrect (or sometimes STD)  For example, if the run is made in colder than standard temps and/or at higher than standard pressure someone might try to avoid SAE correction and report a higher number to thereby increase the boast factor and/or mislead their clients.

bullet

the bottom line: choose SAE correction for your dyno runs to try to remove environmental factors from the data and make your data useful in comparisons with others

Problem Notes:  
bullet

T62-1: at high boost pressures (>~26 psi) it requires a larger flow of air than the 2JZ can support to avoid surge according to calculations.

bullet

T64: seems to require a larger flow of air than the 2JZ can support to avoid surge according to calculations.  However this turbo is used by several people with manual transmissions with success (shorter gears = less rpm drop on the 1-2 shift to help avoid the problematic high 3k, low 4k range when airflow is low).

bullet

T68-1: requires a larger flow of air than the 2JZ can support to avoid surge according to calculations.

bullet

T70: requires a larger flow of air than the 2JZ can support to avoid surge according to calculations.   In fact, this turbo is so far from being usable according to calcs that I cannot imagine anyone trying it.

bullet

T76: at high boost pressures it requires a *much* larger flow of air than the 2JZ can support to avoid surge according to calculations.  The surge line, max supported PR, and max flow of the T72 is superior to the T76.

bullet

T88: at high boost pressures it requires a *much* larger flow of air than the 2JZ can support to avoid surge according to calculations.  Of course this isn't a problem if the turbo doesn't spool until 8k rpms.  ;)
