Dyno a C2 Tiptronic problem


Recommended Posts

This weekend I went to a speed shop as they were having a "Dyno Day". Three pulls for $35. A group of friends went which consisted of 3 -60's vintage Mustangs, a 95 993 and my '00 C2 Tiptronic. None of the Mustangs were really hopped up so I figured I would end up with the best horsepower number for the day. However, when they started my run the manual shift mode shut down as the ABS warning light came on. He shut the car down but manual shift control was not restored. The horsepower only showed 220. The '95 993 came up with 233 (his was a stick). I was kind of embarrased. The car would not shift with manual mode until I had driven the car ~4 times (I guess it cleared the "limp mode"). When I got home I hooked up my Durametric scanner and there were several codes for the engine and a couple for the Tiptronic. Essentially, these were all ABS sensor malfunctions.

My question is, has anyone dynoed a Tiptronic?

Yes, I had my Tip dyno'd. Are you asking to find out if it is possible? Or are you asking to find out if anyone else has had any error lights pop up? Or are you wanting to know what RWHP tips put out?

My car was dyno'd (dynamics dyno) and no CELs came on at all. It was held in 3rd gear in manual mode. The number was 260 RWHP. Seemed low to me, but TIPS have more loss in HP than sticks. It is a fact we live with, which is why I SC'd my car. I have not done another dyno yet though..

ABS warning light will always come on when you dyno a car as the wheel sensors are telling the computer that the front wheels aren't moving while the rears are. I have no idea how this affects a tiptronic. On a manual car it is not an issues as the light clears as soon as you drive it.

I didn't have the CEL light come on, only the ABS light. It went out as soon as I drove off from the speed shop. We tried to get the car to shift in manual mode but as soon as the ABS light came on it did not work. Even after I drove away manual control did not work until car was started 4 times after the dyno run. I was shooting for 260 RWHP but surprised by the 220 I saw.
