      So now that I have my APR tune broken in, I would like to get a dyno of my car to see how much hp and torque I have.... Any suggestions?

      This is probably your best bet: http://www.ddynopower.com/dyno.html

      Unless you did a baseline though it's probably not going to tell you much.

      No I haven't dyno'd the car before, but wanna see if it stands up to the claimed gains from APR and then the difference from stock claimed ratings. Plus it just let's me know what I'm running lol.. Thanks for the advice!

      Without a baseline on the same dyno the results would be somewhat arbitrary though. Dyno's all read differently.

      a baseline is just that, its the base...with no mods or anything done, its the power you make

      right. it allows you to objectively look at any mods to see what they produce (or take away in some cases).

      example. we dyno'd the wife's porsche @ doug's and it baseline 219 whp, we pulled the factory airbox and just left the maf on the TB, and it LOST 5 whp.

      or stock, my car put down 172 whp, no mods; but with the VF kit it put down 289 whp.

      ...I dont see why anyone would dyno a stock/unmodified car...

      I want to see what kind of power my mods are making today, not the difference between stock and modde.
      Only supercharged vr6's reduce power/under-deliver on the dyno @ larry

      It's called the scientific method. If your car supposedly made 200hp stock and it pulled 220hp on the dyno then did you gain 20hp or was the dyno reading a bit high and you gained only 10hp? Maybe it was off 30hp and you lost 10hp? A dyno is a tool, not dick waving machine.

      This is was the main reason that I never dynoed mine.... Now that I'm APR stage 2 and some mods added I want to see if that famed 270 hp is true.... Hopefully more, definitely not less lol

      FYI Rob the wife's Porsche should of only had ~200 whp (236 X 0.85), but put down 219 whp; and this on a notoriously low reading Mustang dyno. In this case it show's Porsche underestimates the power their cars produce.

      and FWIW the SC has gone as far as it can on a VR...on to bigger and better snails.

      I used to measure my dick with a ruler as a young child but then I started growing and the yardstick wasn't enough, now I use a dyno.

      If anything that is crank hp, which a wheel dyno can't tell you

      Some dynos can supposedly calculate crank horsepower by measuring the drag when you coast back down after the pull. I wouldn't be surprised if some might reference that number rather than an actual engine dyno number.

      Well according to the website and what I was sold on, stage 2 is 270hp and 323tq.... http://www.goapr.com/products/ecu_up...fsi_trans.html even the website shows it....
      If it's true that you only get 240 then I want my money back, to me that's a waste....
