I really wanna see what hp my car puts down but I am worried something might happen to my car.. Should I be worried to compete? Yes? No? Any stories? This is my DD by the way..
You should be fine, just make sure they dyno your car in 3rd gear... yes, i know 3rd gear is not optimal, but it will keep the car at a relatively safe MPH for the drive shaft.... we actually dyno'ed my car in 3rd and 4th and the numbers were the same...
Usually when you pop a motor on the dyno it's because they are also tuning the car and pushing the tune... Don't hear of a lot of NA 3.7 popping their motors just doing a couple of dyno pulls... But like anything there is always the possibility...
