Dyno for Tiptronic is possible!

Recommended Posts

Just got back from my dyno trip today and settled my lingering doubts on whether a tiptronic transmission can be dynoed without complications. And yes, it certainly can

This is a baseline run before I put in mods like sports cats and Evo air filter. These will probably be done the next few days and I'll have a seperate thread to report on the results. I already have the Dansk exhaust headers on the car though and didn't bother removing them for a before/after.

224.9bhp (6,500rpm) at the wheels with 192.6 ft/lb (4,900rpm)of torque. I don't really care much about these numbers by themselves as dyno are known to vary from one to another. But it's comforting to know that assuming a drivetrain loss of 15%, the flywheel numbers are about 258bhp which is pretty much on target

Important point to note is TRACTION CONTROL WAS DISABLED prior to the dyno run and the run itself was done in 3rd gear under manual tiptronic mode (obviously).

This is not a traditional roller dyno but one that bolts directly onto the wheel hub... So the car is effectively suspended on the dyno and there's no need to strap the car down.
