Only issue we had was we could not get past 2nd gear for the dyno runs. SMG was being a pain.

DynaPack from what i researched and talking to the shop owner is actually a better way to get numbers. Example is if someone straps one side of the car down harder than the other side you can get some discrepancies. Maybe only 2 hp but it is not perfect. Neither is the DynaPack but for my car it works.
Nice!! Sounds like you found a good shop. Hopefully you sort everything out with the SMG.

I have been told, as well, that DynaPacks are the best to tune on simply because of how consistent they are as you said. After seeing that you decided to use a DynaPack, I am actually strongly considering using one for the time being to see what I gain with a couple mods I have planned up. Then ultimately heading to a DynoJet to compare to my original baseline results.

So when's the plan to get everything installed and tuned?
