Default Dyno tuning question

I am currently running a UTEC and due to lack of time I am thinking about selling it and switching to a full stand alone such as the AEM EMS. I have a lot of plans for the spring such as new turbo, FMIC, fuel stuff, getting the head ported and other internal engine parts. Anyways with the EMS I would want to have it tuned professionally and there is a guy here in Omaha who can do it and is very good with the EMS but his dyno is not AWD. I have heard of AWD DSM's being tuned as front wheel drive but, I was curious if anyone out there has heard of any Subies being tuned as FWD or RWD and if so the results. I guess overall the question is it possible to do this? Any insight into this will be greatly appreciated!

That's a bad idea. Talk to him about doing a road tune.

Wouldn't doing a dyno run off only one set of wheels give faulty numbers though? I know you'ld still have drivetrain loss, but probably less right? That in turn would give you better "dyno queen" numbers ... Guess all would be relative though as long as you did some stock/prior modding pulls ...

If he can tune EMS he can tune a Hydra, and with a little education and a good base map to start with he could probably tune a UTEC. I'll bet you can get pretty close with some of the UTEC users maps or even TurboXS's maps, from there its adjustment, not really tuning, but.......

The tuning fork ain't your problem, drive to KC if you want to get on a AWD dyno (I don't know if there are ones there, I know theirs one in St. Louis and Chicago.).

http://www.imagineauto.com/index2.htm Mustang AWD dyno Lenexa, KS (Might look down their nose at you Jap car)
http://www.diemanmotorsports.com/ ditto Lee's Summit, MO (they are Suby friendly)

Axis Racing in St. Louis (Belleville, IL) is great. Good places in ChicagoLand too. If Chicago, I'd contact RiftsWRX directly.
