First time on a dyno..

I'm taking my stock '03 6.0 to a dyno on the 17th and had a question. Since there is no way (that I know of) to hold the transmission in 4th, do I dyno the truck in 3rd?

Any other advise for a first time dynoer would appreciated...

I got two pulls, we first tried to fool the trans into down shifting into 4th after shifting into 5th, but that didn't work. So I did end up dynoing in 3rd.

It made 239 hp and 418 ft-lb of torque on the first pull and 239 hp and 420 ft-lb of torque on the second pull. This was on a Mustang Dyno.

Thanks fellas. Hopefully I can add a few mods and go back next year.

The dyno is located in Neosho, MO., about 15 miles south of Joplin. It's called Casey's Road & Race. Darrel and the fellas are great to deal with. We had a group of different cars that day, everything from a low 9 second El Camino to my big ugly truck...

We have a dyno at Diesel Power here in Paducah, KY and Russ says that if you can get 70% power to the ground you are doing good. Unless I am mistaken aren't 6.0's supposed to be in the 325hp range? So 70% to the ground would be 227.5 HP so really 239 are good numbers for stock. I am going to get mine dyno'd after the air intake, exhaust, and tuner mods are done. Russ @ Diesel Power says you are wasting your money dynoing before your mods are done, they all run fairly close together.

I'll probably never do anything to this truck, I was just curious what kind of power it made.
