I still maintain that there is no 4 wheel dyno in the Americas.
These are my thoughts exactly... way too much cost involved... a two wheel dyno
would be much more plausible, but my friend is "positive"... (I am having less
and less faith in his "positivity"...)
Can anyone in CT positively support or refute this claim???

btw, the dyno which Powerhaus uses is a Dyno Jet Model 248E (two wheel)
on the AWD turbos they dyno, they remove the front drive and get the reading off
of the rear wheels...
