I thought that you said that such a mod is not possible????
Reason (according to you) was it would not be a FWD/RWD even if diffs
locked. You are not very consistant in your reasoning, Scott.

Very consistant actually. If you read the thread to which you refer, it was
in reference to suspension and "equalization" argument on a TRACK. I don't
argue physics. If you disconnect the rear driveshaft you will get 100% of
the power to the front wheels with the center diff locked. For a dyno test a
simple and logical, and physics argument. What would be inconsistant, is if
I said this procedure was to equal the driving properties of awd and fwd/rwd.
Quoting the archives doesn't really bother me, you will find me consitant
for 3+ years here Randall. I do encourage you to finish the thread though.
So, let me repeat. The owners manual documents that disconnecting the rear
driveshaft for dyno testing is recommended on a 2 wheel dyno.
