    Taking the Boss to the dyno for the first time. Anybody have any advice? I have the track-key installed, otherwise I'm all stock. Thanks.

    Just like at the drag strip for the first time keep your expitations low and you won't be disappointed as much. Make sure your rear tires pressures are even. Make sure the guy in your drivers seat knows how to shift a manual transmission and knows what gear is 1:1. Make sure that you get a "clear" graph readings that make sense and you can read. Let them know up front if you have a certain item you are interested in like a maximum torque level for optimal shifting. Get your money's worth!
    Remember some dyno's operators get paid by the pull or by the hour (keep them off the phone so the pay more attention to the details regarding your baby.)

    See if they'll run it for both keys but don't expect a great difference.

    Have the operator provide you the results in SAE vice STD. Disengage the advance track so you can get a full run to the RPM redline. The most important thing? Post your results here when you get them!!!

    Make sure the car is fully warmed up before you run. On a stock B302 you should see somewhere between 385 and 400whp (SAE) depending on the car and the dyno.

    Already mentioned once but hold the TC button down while depressing the brake pedal until you get the advancetrac off notification.

    Thanks, the dyno days is at a local shop here, it the 2nd week in July. It's 65.00 for 3 pulls. I thought that would give me a chance to try out both keys. We have 93 octane here so we will see what happens.

    Wow, that's cheap. Please let us know the ambient temp at the times of the run.
