Chassis Dyno FAQ's. Frequently asked Questions about Car
Q: What is the difference between tuning on the street
and tuning on a dyno?
A: Tuning on a dyno will provide you with accurate
data in a controlled enviroment. With traffic, street
lights and the road varying the conditions, it would
be near impossible for you to hold a steady load on
a vehicle for an extended amount of time. On a dyno
dynamic dynamometer you can hold, as an example 5000
rpm @ 120 kpa for as long or short as you need. This
speeds up the tuning or troubleshooting process.
Q: Does the dyno have a AFR UEGO input?
A: Yes, the dyno comes with a AFR Wideband Meter of
high quality. You have the option of using a NTK wideband
02 sensor or a Bosch 02 sensor.
Q: I have a race car that has well over 700 Horsepower
and I will be Dyno
Tuning my car, will the mobile dyno 450 standard
A: Yes it will, the mobile 450 Standard will handle
up to 900 horsepower without a problem. If you feel
you need more than 900 horsepower you can order a twin
retarder dyno with is the same dyno, but with and additional
retarder system that will allow you to tune up to 1800
Q: Can I control the dyno's load and other functions
while I am in a car tuning it?
A: Yes, you can. Each Chassis
Dyno comes with an Handheld device that will allow
you to control everything from the load to the remote
fans. You can even take snapshots at high rpms to see
where your power or torque is at.
Q: Can I use the Mobile dyno as a Smog
A: You will have to check with the SMOG
Check Advisory board, but I doubt you will be able
to use the Mobile Dyno for smog certification.
