Dyno an xdrive on a rwd dyno?

Sorry if this has been discussed before. I searched and could not find much info about it. I want to baseline my 2020 M340ix and a friend of mine has a 2wd dynojet in his home garage (cool, right?). I have always dynoed all my vehicles at his house for free through their various stages of modification. This includes my awd Infiniti Q50 which we just had to unplug a connector in the trunk to disable the fwd. I realize that there is a dyno mode we can put our cars in but I believe that it may not put the vehicle in rwd only. Does anyone know for sure if you can only dyno this car on an awd dyno or if there is a way to convert it temporarily to rwd to safely dyno it on a 2wd dyno? Thanks for any help and info!

There is no easy way to do this and unlike on the F30 chassis neither Mission Performance or xDelete have brought an easy on/off solution to market yet.

That said I have seen MP do this but it was for their own testing purposes and is not something they sell (might want to give Alex a call)

On a related and cool note MP did just launch selectable 2WD via idrive screen for the X3M....how nice would that be.

ps- while I've seen plenty of lifts in home garages I have never seen a dyno in a home garage....that's next level sh*t right there

Thanks for your response. It seems I will have to wait for a solution or spend the money to dyno on an awd dyno elsewhere. I may just do before and after with a draggy since that is probably a better metric then dyno figures anyway.

ps- It definitely is next level, he also has a 1400hp GTR and 500+hp Q50 daily. Its good to know smart and successful people!
