We did this months ago but nice to see Automobile get with the program. They used a dynojet which is nice to see and they admit it is a higher reading dyno. They also used a manual, as they state: "The DCT could experience greater loss due to its hydraulic pump and different gear ratios." Sounds like something else we did months ago. Automobile reaches the conclusion that the N55 suffers from less turbo lag than the N54 and it puts down less power, quite interesting. Our results showed the N55 with more peak power, much more than the 266 whp they hit. Dyno Graphs are below.
