Does the M5 have a dyno mode that you have to engage before you dyno the car? Somebody told me that this mode will --entirely-- disable traction control - He continued on to say that even if you turn DSC off the vehicle still has some amount of traction control which will reduce engine power.

I left without doing the dyno... What is this dyno mode ?? :dunno:

No such thing. Just DSC off, S6. If you dyno with the hood open, you'll need to trip the hood latches to make the car think it's closed (maybe that's what you were thinking of?)

I have never dyno'd a car before. This is a "mustang dyno" - how accurate are these?

Also, what is the benefit of keeping the hood open?

+1 although I generally dyno in S5. I don't think the gear changing
speed matters since you'll be dynoing in 4th or 5th throughout the
run.

One thing you should expect is for you car to light up light a Christmas
tree. You'll get to see all the errors possible. Don't worry though as
once you drive off the errors will go away.

I've never dynoed on a Mustang dyno but from my understanding they
are similar to the Dyno Dynamics dyno. It's load bearing vs an
inertial dyno (ala Dynojet). Because of this expect your numbers to
be much lower than a dynojet.

Sorry for my stupidity, but what lights would trip with running on a dyno?

Trans failure will come on... Brake light will come on... can't remember what else but your car will make you think it is going to explode.. :hihi::pedro: But once you drive off it will all go away.. Unless you did Dinan upgrades and your looking for Dyno results (NOT).. Then the fun has just started... cherrsagai

Pretty much every warning you've never heard of. I think
I even saw an airbag warning once. :dunno: :haha:
I don't get why though really...I can see if it was a mustang dyno where it hooks on to the hub instead of the drum style...maybe I'm just retarded:biggrinbounce:
