Its about 4th gear, which is 0.975. Thats closest to 1:1 ratio.

That would mean most of us are cheaters, lol.

But seriously, it's up to the dyno operator to decide which gear to use. It's all about the sampling rate. A very high power turbo car would use a higher gear like 4th or even 5th gear because they go through the gear so fast. The longer sampling time the more accurate it will be.

Okay, I'll ask him to do runs in 3rd and 4th gear.

Hit a snag today, the belt for the water pump pulley slipped off somehow and the motor started to overheat. As in, the temp needle at the H. Had no idea what was going on seeing as it's 12 degrees out, pulled over and the coolant was boiling, totally stumped, looked over everything, and then I noticed the belt had slipped off the pulley. Let it cool off for an hour, froze in the car, then drove back. Going to fix it tomorrow.

Dont know, for my personal cars, 3rd in NA would make the best power, 4th always a joke losing power. Turbo, 3rd is a joke and 4th makes the power.

Maybe Im a cheat, but since I always do it like this, numbers are comparable between runs...
