I was randomly selected, only one of 6 in California for the 2.0 testing, they likely will be doing the same for the 3.0 when a fix is approved.

Miles on a Dyno don't necessarily equate to more stress than road miles, it depends on what the technicians are having the car do during the test. This is not like the usual Dyno test where you are running the engine to max revs and loads to measure maximum horsepower, but rather running it thru a number of speed & load scenarios while hooked up to diagnostics tools to measure the impact on emissions. Totally different situation.

Did the OP end up doing the testing deal? I just got my letter in the mail for my '15 GSW this and am considering it, but trying to find out more info on the deal.

He did, but hasn't reported yet on the state of his car when he got it back.
If it works, take it apart and find out why!
