Calibrate butt dyno

Can someone explain to me the difference the butt dyno picks up between better throttle response and more horsepower. My truck has been driving incredibly smoothly recently with a bit more pep, but I want to know if it is due to more power, or better throttle response.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Butt dynos are a VERY unaccurate device. I have had many people think they had gains in their vehicles, only to find out that their vehicle LOST power, once it was thromn on the rollers. The only thing I have found, that the butt dyno can accurately gauge, is a fart....nothing more. They can even confuse a fart with a shit..They shoul dnot be trusted.

But the thing is I have backed off my driving habits. I take things real slow but the throttle is much peppier. I think tacoholic needs to recalibrate his...
