Default Dyno Recommendations

does anyone know of a reputable shop that will strap a car on the dyno for for $75 with a/f monitored? i know i've seen that price point more so at open houses/events. upping the money a bit won't hurt, although i'm not sure what the going rate is these days. preferably somewhere in the nw suburbs or north.

Komet Motorsports in St Charles charges 100 for 3-4 pulls. Not sure if they charge extra for A/F. If you call over, ask for Kurt. Tell him Mike with the Golf R referred you.

Be warned tho, if you're looking for glory numbers, their dyno is a mustang and will NOT give you bragging rights.

Matt - Drew @ Dmarkperformance is pretty close to you being off of Oakton/Elmhurst in AH.

Give him a call and see what he would charge for 1-2 pulls with A/F.

He has a dynocom and it is calibrated extremely well, so, numbers should be very accurate.

Mustang dynos are more accurate than most other dynos. They sometimes hurt feelings though lol.

A Mustang dyno is an Eddy current dyno, whereas a Dynojet and I believe dynocom are inertia dynos.

The Mustang dyno uses a load cell to actually measure torque where a dynojet uses a known inertia to calculate the numbers. It works almost like an accelerometer.

I wouldn't let the dyno type determine which shop I go to. In the end, the only thing that matters is real life performance measured by track times. I've heard of some of the shadier tuning shops with dynojets, attracting ignorant customers who have previously had tuning done with a Mustang dyno. The tuner says he made some tune changes, then prints out a dyno sheet showing higher peak horsepower, when in reality nothing was changed. Fortunately we have some pretty reputable tuners in our area, but I've heard of that happening in other parts of the country.

Its the generation of FB. People dont want to share low numbers.

Ive seen guys literally argue to their blue in the face comparing dyno numbers to real world TRACK numbers @DanJoy

Matt, lemme know what you find out. I want to get my car on the dyno and would really like boost and A/F to be logged.
