Rolling Road Dyno

Rolling Road Dyno

Basic power runs: Ideal for those who simply wish to discover the output of their vehicle’s engine. A number of non-adjustment runs are completed and a print-out providing all the important figures is given at the end of the test. This is a basic strap down power test and will show wheel BHP, torque, run down losses, flywheel BHP and corrected flywheel BHP to desired industry standard. Other data includes ignition timing, AFR, intake temps and more.

We can plot all these variables against each other, giving you a clear picture of how your car is running.

The air fuel setting is taken from a wide band lambda sensor placed in the exhaust and gives both us and you a clear idea of how the car is running on the rollers, it also enables us to stop the session if we think damage could be done by continuing.

Power runs take about 60 minutes and are priced at £80. Some big power/rare cars require extra time to set up on the rollers, we may charge more than standard for these cars, but if this is the case we will advise you when you book.

What does it do?

With a competent & highly experienced operator, a good dyno allows for the scientific evaluation of systematic and subsequent changes to an ECU (engine control unit). The dyno gives a vast amount of managed data back to the operator whom then uses this information to make calculated changes to the maps.

This is what professional remap development involves.

A controlled process with an accurate machine to get the best results while keeping the engine within safe operating parameters.

There are many different brands and types of engine controller. Each requires a specific approach and interface. Lookout for future articles on this topic

Why use a dyno?

We are the only company in Telford who can offer a full custom remap/tune as we have our own onsite dyno rolling road where our work can be carried out safely and 100% within the law and not out on the roads where your vehicle is risk due to insurance being void when on the public highways.

If a company is performing this “on road” its dangerous and also voids yours and THEIR insurance. If they have an accident your vehicle is not covered.
