Preparing for Dyno: exactly which fuses clear adaptives?

I need to know EXACTLY which fuses I'm to pull to clear the adaptives for tomorrow. What would you guys say is the best method for head to head testing of the intakes? I have a full hour...maybe more if I bring Tim (shop owner) some beers

BTW this is going to be an AWD Mustang Dyno, since I know most people don't drive around 24/7 in 2WD.


What would the recommended method of testing be for you guys? I want to limit the number of complaints and whines from users saying I did this wrong, or that wrong.

I am interested in this also. I have only been successful on a two wheel. For the two wheel. I will tell you what i did for this.

Remove the ABS fuse.
Remove the Ediff Fuse.
Remove the Transfercase plug.
You have to jump on the throttle and get it moving quick in first. Otherwise it goes into limp mode.

Good luck, Looking forward to your #'s

JT,
The thing is, even if you clear the PCM on the dyno you need to take it off the rollers and beat on it for it to relearn WOT/closed loop. So dyno with volant, remove it and install the Bwoody intake while clearing the PCM. Drive around and hammer on it for a bit, then strap her down again and redyno. Yes it's a PITA but that's how it should be done.

Or BOTH!

I already spoke to the shop owner, he's excited about this and suggested I only do two units this time, and come back next week for another two. He has some new type of intake he wants to test as well.

Maybe I should ask for donations to pay for another dyno hour! $125!!

Almost easier to test on the strip.
Dyno's are fun, but I prefer real times at the strip.


BTW, I notice that when parking, I sometimes have the wheels turned hard (on purpose)....nice to see the bright yellow sway bar links.

Bill,

I'm totally with you man. Dyno #'s are not the end all/be all but unfortunately people place A LOT of faith in them. I myself prefer real world times also.

Like right now, I just got done doing 0 to 60 runs on my "test strip", did 8 runs.

0 to 60 in 4.46 avg. of all 8, in 91*F Ambient with 49% humidity. Not bad! Yesterday in VERY similar conditions with my volant my best average was 4.66.
