  • Dyno Prep/Advice ?

    Alright guys Im going to the dyno tomorrow, Tuesday Feb 19, 2002, around lunchtime. $50 for 3 runs, and here's what I plan on doing with the 3 runs.

    Run 1 - Normal
    Run 2 - Normal
    Run 3 - Remove MAF screen

    Hopefully I'll see a significant change in hp/tq numbers by removing the screen on the last run - I'm guessing it will be lower because of what I saw at the track.

    My questions are as follows:
    • Are there any preperations I need to make to the car before going?
    • Is there anything I need to know about while being ON the dyno itself?
    • Is it worth going?
    • I heard about bad spark responses throwing off torque curves for the dyno, is this common? Can I do anything to prevent this? I run stock wires.
    • Does anyone have any idea what kind of numbers I should expect to pull with a 9.7second 1/8 mile time?

    Thanks guys - I would like responses to be quick if possible, I'll be leaving tomorrow - wish me luck...

    I would say anywhere from 155-175 max. I couldn't get a torque reading on mine either when it was dynoed. Good luck! Make sure to post your numbers!

          Are cars mere machines used for transport from one place to another? Are they just a way of satisfying your social hunger? I am sure passionate car owners would feel otherwise. Don’t you love the freedom you experience when you explore the sensations that go through your body. It is not possible to experience the speed the swiftness without being in a car.

          But when it comes to caring, do you maintain your car in a good manner? Even though the answer might be yes, I am...
