Dyno Info

Overview

We have one of the most powerful chassis dynos made. It is made by Mustang Dynomometer and its a MD-1750SE model. Its capable of measuring 1750 wheel hp, 1750 lb/ft of torque, and 225 mph.

We can do speedo checks, constant loading, vehicle smulation, passing tests and more.

Dyno Testing Environment 

Dyno Testing/Tuning, by its nature, is like a racing environment.

On our Mustang Chassis Dyno model MD-1750, we simulate as close to real world as possible. We must know the vehicle weight, to correctly calculate load that will be imposed onto the vehicle. This is one of the main reasons we feel that this is the most accurate way of tuning an internal combustion engine.

Running a car on the dyno is safer than racing at the track, and it's definitely safer than racing on the street. For example, you are racing down the track at 100 MPH speed and blow your engine you risk slipping in the oil and losing control of the vehicle. Same goes for blown tires etc.

Although the dyno is far safer, we realize that you don't race dyno numbers. Therefore using our dyno to tune as close to real world as possible, you can have confidence that your first trip down the track won't result in a catastrophe that was caused by tuning.

Under dyno testing/tuning situations the vehicle is exposed to extreme amounts of stress. That stress is equal to if not sometimes greater than what's experienced at the track, or on the street. Some of the stress may affect, but is not limited to; the engine, transmission, rear-end, chassis, and any restraint points. Usually if something goes wrong on the dyno, a blown engine or any other breakage, no one get hurts, and that's the most important thing.

There has been some argument, which is better, an engine or chassis dyno?? The answer depends on its use. Engine dynos that measure flywheel horsepower are not the best choice for base tuning an engine to a specific car, sure they work well and in fact are the dyno of choice for engine development, especially when changing anything internal like a camshaft, mainly because they are open, but they are of little use when it comes to tuning the engine to the car. One dyno will never replace the other, but typically the chassis dyno is better choice for the "Average Joe". The ultimate is to run your engine on both types of dynos. If your budget doesn't allow that, then I would choose the chassis dyno first. One reason is because you don't have to waste valuable time trying to get it started for the first time. You can get it started then bring it to the dyno, so you aren't paying for time just to get it to start and run.

It has been said that 2 hours on a chassis dyno is like a day at the track. When its time to test out that new combination, or you just want to see if that change you made to your engine really helped anything, the chassis dyno is a superb choice.
