What SRT said (ie you'll make 40 hp less than a manual would) is what I've been hearing also for the 4r70w and 4r75w autos so keep that in mind when you get your numbers.
This is with the converter locked, I'm assuming yours is locked at WOT in 3rd.
Good luck, I think I'd be too nervous to ever put my car on a dyno.
I'd want to do it like they do a space shot, with 50 guys sitting watching monitors of very possible thing you can measure, including the pilots rectal tension so they can immediately shut down on every possible "oh shit" occurrence.
Right, which is why I'm hoping for 400-410 at the max. If srt10ram can keep his alive at 440rwhp for a year, I should be good at around 410 with an auto hopefully.
And you are correct. Dyno will be done locked in 3rd.
Nice. Honestly, I would rather flog it on the dyno than the street. When doing datalogs, I was sliding all over the road, and the pull only lasted a few seconds. Plus there was issues with police, idiot pedestrians, and deer on the road. I was really maxing my comfort zone try to keep one eye on my wideband, one on the laptop, one on the tach, one on the boost gauge, and one on the road. This is also an opportunity to hold it at WOT for several seconds. On the road, within 4-5 seconds I'm hitting 6000rpms in 2nd and have to let off. Plus, even though this guy isn't tuning the car, he is still a professional and is very skilled at listening for detonation. If anything goes wrong, it will be in a controlled environment at least.

Gonna try my best to get off work and ride up there to watch. You should definitely hang around till that evening and head to the drag strip and we will run em. Should be close especially since I'll have the upper hand off the launch but you should pull hard on the big end. Then if u wanna have some fun we'll slap my slick on her and see what she's mad of.

Awesome! I'll hang around, but I'm not sure what I will do until the test-n-tune. That will be a lot of time to kill, haha.
Man if we actually line them up with me having street tires, it's going to be a shit show lol. I'm down if you are though!
