It'll be accurate...for your front two wheels. Then when you put it back to awd you have to factor in drivetrain losses.

Use it to gauge the progress you make with each mods. And use the numbers for your car only.

I've done it, but only to see how much power I'm making with turbo, with my current NA setup, etc.. I don't compare it with anyone else's numbers.

Id be VERY carefull...

As far as I know the AWD fuse controls the electirc clutch mechanism which lock up the rear wheels. The default power split is still 90/10 which means the clutch will be draging while you do it, and could possibly damage it. You could drive the car like that, since the rear wheels will be moving, but when one side rotates and the other doesn't... could be trouble.

It's the same reason you can't tow the car with the rear wheels on the ground.

If you look in the owner manual you will see directions on how to use the fuse to make your car FWD.

Right under that is another paragraph warning you that although you can do it, you really really really shouldn't unless it is for emergency/short short distances.

Or unless you want to replace bits of your drivetrain.
