Dyno Tuning

All Dyno tuning is done in our purpose built dyno cell housing our 4wd Dynapack Dynamometer – installed with two 1.5meter diameter extraction fans and .7m diameter radiator cooling fan to maximize engine cooling and engine power repeatability as well as technician safety due to the rapid change of air in the dyno cell.

Dyno Check List:

When you bring your car to be tuned it can be a big investment of both your time and money. We want this to be a positive experience for you therefore have come up with a check list that can help you save time and money.

  • Does the engine have the correct level of oil & the oil is fresh with new oil filter?
  • Have all other fluid levels have been checked (ie coolant, gearbox, diff)?
  • Is the fuel in your vehicle what you intend to run and is there at least 20l in the tank
  • Does the vehicle have a suitable 02 sensor bung fitted for our wideband sensor to be installed into? If one is not fitted this can be organized prior to vehicle being fitted to the dyno.
  • Have you checked that there are no fuel, oil or water leaks on the vehicle
  • Is the fuel system cabable of supporting expected power levels ie fuel pump, injectors, fuel filter and fuel lines.
  • Have you checked your spark plugs? We highly recommend placing a new set of spark plug into your vehicle before the tune
  • Is the air filter clean or does it need replacing?
  • Have you checked intercooler piping & joiners – insure all hose clamps are tight?

The above checklist covers the most common issues which seem to pop up when a car is on the dyno. When your vehicle is dropped off one of our technicians will have a look over your vehicle before it is fitted to the dyno. However if the above checklist is taken into account before the vehicle is dropped off this will help with the final results.

It is also a good idea to let us know some history of the motor (if known), ie: what internals it is running (standard/forged etc?) so we have an idea of what it can handle.

Another thing which is sometimes overlooked is the condition of your clutch. If your clutch is older and getting near replacement time, then it is advisable to fit a new clutch before your car is dyno tuned as a slipping clutch will halt your tuning! If you are aiming for decent power out of your car, then look into fitting an upgraded clutch that can handle more than a factory item. Just ask and we can advise on what best will suit your vehicle, as well as supply and fit the new clutch so you are all ready for tuning.
