Frisii is on a distinguished road

I'm working on using dynamic meshing and testing it's performance. To do this would like to run a simulation of a von karman street like in this tutorial.[simflow].html

But the thing is that dynamic meshing only works in 3D. my supervisor told me that I should look into using symmetry planes. All fine up until this point. But my question is:

Would the usage of a symmetry plane to make a pseudo-3D environment have an effect on the results? i.e. would it look exactly the same to the real 2D rendition, not counting the effects dynamic meshing will have in the other 2 dimensions.

If I should clarify this further please tell me, I'm new to the whole CFD field
