The dyno measures output and not acceleration, right? So would 19" wheels affect the numbers? Thanks.

wouldnt the added weight of the wheels affect the drivetrain loss? and all dyno #'s are based on whats at the rear wheels, so yes

but i am no pro

Heavier weight in rear + larger wheel = rwhp loss (I am also not a pro)

just slap ur 68M's back on in the rear, and have them off when ur done dynoing, u will get better #'s

but thats sorta cheating, if ur gonna be a baller and run the 19's, might as well take the hit in the power department, couldnt reduce #'s by that much...
