An essential part of the vehicle performance modification process involves the use of a dynamometer with an experienced technician making adjustments to your vehicle. Dyno tuning is the ability to make adjustments to your vehicle's ignition, fuel, and air supply to attain the greatest possible horse power and torque, while maintaining optimal air-fuel ratio. Make sure that you are not wasting your money or time when you upgrade your vehicle from factory settings and build to a higher standard of performance.
Dyno tuning should be performed after any upgrade, as to attain the best performance from the new modifications. While on a dyno, it is much easier to change components and perform a test after each adjustment. The greatest benefit to testing on a chassis dynamometer is that that test involves using the components that will be working with the upgraded equipment. The fuel system, ignition, wiring, and exhaust system, all work together to make up the vehicle's performance.
How many times have you doubted the power of a vehicle when listening to someone talk about their vehicle's performance? Do their numbers seem a little on the high side? A classic performance mistake is to confuse the results of the manufacturer's engine dyno with the results you receive on a chassis dyno. Using the engine dyno information and estimating the amount of performance change, can give you the appearance of not knowing what you are talking about.
There are many component variables that can change the power amount being quoted. The engine dyno is taking measurements at the flywheel. However, the chassis dyno indicates how much power is actually reaching the wheel. Each vehicle varies depending on its individual driveline. If you want to be confident of your vehicles performance numbers, contact us to schedule a chassis dyno test.
