Can you put a Punto evo on a dyno?

Just wondering if you can get the actual bhp your car is producing for my sporting on a dyno? Im sure i read on here that it's hard to do this with the Punto evo, due to something to do with the traction control?

More than possible, you simply turn the ASR off.

It'll throw up ABS warnings etc when on the rolling road as the rear wheels are not turning, but after half a mile with all 4 wheels on the ground again, all will be good
