Dyno instructions

I am going to dyno my car this Friday to get a baseline before installing test pipes & a tune. I have a DCT, is there anything else I need to worry about besides putting it in 4th gear and having the DSC off? I searched and this is all I found, just want to make sure I am not leaving anything off. This is the first time I've ever taken a car to get dyno'd so sorry for the noob question, thanks guys.

DCT should be dynoed in 5th. You dyno operator should know the routine for everything else, which is standard operation.

What tune are you going with?

Thanks Tom. I am leaning towards the BPM tune.

What the reason for 5th gear? What happen if it done in 3rd or 4th?

It's the closest gear to a 1:1 ratio, proving the most accurate readings.
