I was asking a company to give me a torque reading on a dyno run but said it wasn't possible to get an accurate figure since it was an auto. Is this the case and if so how do you know how near you are to the 300 limit that's claimed for a 9000 aero. I hope I've made some sense.

It does depend on the dyno, and autos are a bit more awkward to get readins from due to the torque convertor.
Most dynos aeem to be dynamic dynos, which are not really much help for autos, as they involve a full power run to get the figures.
What you would need is to find a static dyno, which operates by applying a load to matian certain revs, whoch gives the auto time to lock up to achieve mechanical drive so you can get your readings.

I think I got that right
