Does anyone know of an AWD dyno in the Long Island NY area?? I'm hopefully picking up an R this weekend, and am def. going to do some mods to it, and want to find a local dyno so I can get some accurate HP numbers.
There is a AWD DynoJet over in Milford, CT and better yet an AWD DynaPack in East Hartford, CT. When I was looking for an AWD dyno, I went to the DynoJet web site and found a local tuner there. But, in my opinion, the DynaPack dyno is more accurate if you can find one.<p> The Milford tuner is Pruven Performance and the East Hartford tuner is XX Tuning. They both specialize in Ricers but can handle your R. They both also have web sites if you want to check them out.
For dyno runs I use ICS Performance in Stamford which is less than a mile off of I95 North (exit 8):<p><A HREF="http://www.icsperformance.com/dynoserv.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://www.icsperformance.com/dynoserv.htm</A><p>(Home of the 1,000+WHP M3 featured in this month's European Car)<p>BTW, even though they have an AWD dyno, I still do my runs in FWD (you simply need to pull the Haldex fuse), per recommendations from this board.<p>Enjoy that R!<p>Regards,<p>Derek<br>
