Just curious who you guys are using for dynoing AWD vehicles? Pretty sure both dynos I saw on site are just 2WD. New car is in customs now, so it should be here in a week or two. Gonna do a quick 1,000 mile break in and then it needs a baseline dyno test. They may advertise 523hp, 553lb/ft, but I’d be shocked if it doesn’t make those at the wheels, given BMWs history of underrating.

theres an AWD dyno here...but its just never been fully functional. And, now, we are pulling it out and replacing it with a brand new Superflow AWD setup to go with our new emissions testing set up. Fun stuff. And expensive!!!

They have 2 or 3 AWD dynos in Opelika, where the BMW cal work is done for the most part.

Only AWD vehicle we really support is the GCSRT8/Trackhawk, and its easy enough to run them in 2WD.
