At Simpson Racing Solutions, we offer a number of services to maintain and improve your vehicle’s performance. Here are some frequently asked questions about one of our popular procedures, dyno tuning.
Dyno tuning is a procedure that will greatly increase the efficiency and performance of your vehicle. The process of dyno tuning consists of adjusting your engine’s management parameters to maximize torque and horsepower.
Our SuperFlow AUTODYN 30 Eddy Current Dynamometer is capable of measuring and holding 1100HP (Single Eddy Current) with load control and peak power of 2500 HP . The AUTODYN 30 has the ability to simulate real world conditions without ever leaving the shop.
We do not just provide horsepower numbers, we give objective results and we strive to achieve the very best results in dyno tuning and testing. With dual channel wide band O2 sensing capabilities, you can be sure you are receiving accurate and reliable data on each dyno pull to help dial in your combination.
Dyno tuning your vehicle can maximize the potential of your combination. The procedure can also help with the diagnosis of possible engine problems, identification of potential drivetrain issues, and assist in troubleshooting drivability issues.
Furthermore, dyno tuning can remedy common issues such as subpar gas mileage, surging, pinging, difficulty starting your vehicle, or a lack of power.
Dyno tuning is no more dangerous than riding your vehicle on a race track within a similar RPM range.
That being said, if your vehicle’s engine is using oil, smoking heavily, pushing out water, or in overall poor condition, it is best to correct those issues first before deciding on a trip to the dyno.
Dyno testing in its simplest form is used to measure the horsepower and torque output of a vehicle. Using this consistent and objective measuring technique, we can apply changes to the engine's tune and record the results. This is an ideal process for anyone looking to improve the performance and/or drivability of their vehicle.
No, dyno testing is no harder on your vehicle than running your vehicle at the dragstrip or on the street.
While dyno tuning, your vehicle’s engine is going to be put under the same type of stress you would expect to experience on a race track. Prepare your engine in a similar way. Make sure all your fluids are topped up, and check the condition of all your spark plugs.
If your car is equipped with a manual gearbox, you should also make sure your clutch is in a healthy condition and working as it should. Fill your gas tank with the same fuel that you intend to use under wide open throttle conditions.
At Simpson Racing Solutions, we use the SuperFlow AUTODYN 30 Eddy Current Dynamometer. This dynamometer is capable of measuring and holding up to 1100 HP (single eddy current) with load control and peak power of 2500 HP.
The AUTODYN 30 also has the ability to simulate conditions you would experience out in the real world without ever having to leave our shop. With dual channel wide band O2 sensing capabilities, the AUTODYN 30 ensures accurate and reliable data for you and your vehicle. Learn more about our performance engine builders now!
Yes, dyno tuning can save you and your wallet from costly repairs in the future. After dyno tuning, your vehicle’s engine does not have to work as hard as it did previously.
This can extend the life of your engine greatly. Moreover, dyno tuning will reduce the overall wear and tear on your vehicle by reducing the time it takes to dial in an optimal tune.
Absolutely! Just keep in mind that if you have a drag racing car with an automatic transmission and high stall converter, the dyno data will be inaccurate below converter stall speed. Having said that, we break-in new parts, test, and tune the 7-second SRS altered on our in-house chassis dyno. We have also tested and tuned 900+ horsepower supercharged dragsters on our chassis dyno.
If you would like to book a dyno tuning appointment with Simpson Racing Solutions, you can give us a call at (236) 422-1180. Our trained technicians are happy to answer any questions you have about the dyno tuning process. We look forward to hearing from you!
