    Anyone recommend any shops around Northeast Indiana that have an AWD Dyno? Want to get a baseline run before doing mods, inter-cooler, MAP, tune etc. Nothing extravagant as I drive my 2018 SHO daily. Willing to drive a bit to get to a dyno. 100 miles is no big deal to me.

    Thanks for any help

    LMS is in Michigan right? Not sure with them not being your tuner but might be worth reaching out

    LMS is 2 1/2 hours from me. Anyone had any experience with Force Engineering in Plainwell MI? They are 90 minutes from me

    For the most part any AWD Dyno shop will work. Sounds like will you not be doing any tuning, only base lining the car. Call, make an apt., and keep an eye on the strap down, let them do their thing, get your numbers then go home and purchase the go faster stuff.

    Oh I've been through the madness before with my 05 Jetta TDI (diesel) that I purchased new, lots of mods on that one, and I sold it with 505,875 miles. But I keep them reliable since I put about 30,000 miles a year on my car.
    Girlfriend just shakes her head and says I'm crazy.....

    Are you sure the rollers were linked? Makes sense if FWD, but I am no expert :D

    They said they were linked, all 4 were rolling during test. Suppose it's possible belts slipped.

    Got the Gearhead Auto Octane tune installed, colder plugs, 3 Bar MAP. Shout out to Matt from Gear head for adjusting shift point for 6th gear to my preference :) I appreciate it.

    Installed the Gear Head Inter cooler today. Went pretty easy, followed GH youtube video install. Only difference was I had to remove headlights and front bracing to get enough room to remove the radiator.

    Some differences in size, OEM is 1.2" thick and 8.6lbs, GH intercooler is 1.66" thick and 30.2lbs! Definitely heavy duty!

    Driving was a different experience than I was expecting. 55mph cruise, intake temps were about 45 degrees above ambient, (same as OEM intercooler) Which was not what I was expecting, I thought GH intercooler would be more efficient. Then I did a couple of full throttle runs to 60 mph, WOW what a difference, the temps went down! I was not expecting that, so I was giggling like a 5 year old on Christmas morning. Temps even go down on throttle at highway speeds.

    I am going to have fun!

    Next will be Dyno run again to measure the changes!

    100lb ft is interesting and only 18-19 hp. Weird how that torque spikes so high. Wonder what the before and after 1/4 would have looked like.
