    Had my car dyno'ed today

    And it sucked. Guy at the dyno shop didn't know what he was doing. my rpm didn't match the rev on dyno graph and he kept doing dyno pulls from 1st or 2nd gear until i told him that he needs to run at a gear that is close to 1:1 ratio.
    Anyways it was like 161hp at the first/second gear and 221rwhp at peak of the horsepower graph on last.


    also i spiked 660lbft on one of the pulls.

    Dyno was free of charge since it was inconsistent.
    conclusion
    1. Don't ever go to crappy dyno place
    2. 3.6l has more torque than v owners cars. :drinker

    on a side note: I found another problem with my cts.
    When pushed hard, it makes a zinging noise. It literally goes ~ziing~.
