I voted for the DTS on your poll, because that's what we use and I'm naturally biased towards them.
Lem and I just got through dynoing Bobby Z's 588 CID engine yesterday and took it off the dyno this morning. The unusual thing about his engine, is that he bought the A-460 heads, old style single 4 intake manifold, cam and valvetrain from Phillip Oakley back in 2002. At that time in 2001, when we dynoed Phillip's engine it we made 935 or so Hp with a 572 CID. Yesterday we used the same dyno headers and dynoed Bobby's engine in worse air/humidity but still corrected for, and made 940-942 Hp. So the DTS is not worn out after 5 years of service and the data is repeatable.
Personally I think the only other choice would be the SuperFlow and I actually started dynoing on them back in 1994 at other people's shops.
The guys down at Holley Carbs have one of each, (SuperFlow and DTS) in their R&D department. I asked their dyno operator which one he preferred and he said the DTS.
I do know one shop in Indiana that has a little Land & Sea and their are sick of it. They have pretty much had to plow their own ground in terms of tech support, computer programs and etc.
Hope this helps,
