Dyno tuning measures engine output, including horsepower, torque and air fuel mixture. Your technician can adjust the air fuel mixture and timing to preferred settings based on your vehicle type. This type of tuning can occur for different engine loads and conditions. It is a special tune-up that enhances your ride and increases the efficiency and performance of your vehicle.
Main Reasons for Dyno Tuning
Dyno tuning helps to tune your vehicle so that you have a more cost-effective and smoother ride. This procedure also helps with common issues, such as poor gas mileage, surging, pinging, difficulty starting the vehicle or lack of power. If you need performance work done on your vehicle, you may consider getting a dyno tune to have optimum performance of your vehicle. A dyno tune can help resolve many of these problems.
A dyno tune uses the preferred settings that are matched to your vehicle and its equipment to enhance its performance to optimum levels. A dyno tune commonly provides for maximum power, better drivability, good fuel economy and a smoother ride. It increases the horse power of your vehicle and returns the vehicle to stock fuel economy. It also prevents or minimizes backfire.
Dyno tuning can also save you from costly repairs in the future. A dyno tuned engine does not have to work as hard as a vehicle that has not been dyno tuned. Additionally, dyno tuning reduces the wear and tear on the vehicle. The life of your engine is also extended.
Systematic Approach to Engine Tuning
The first step that a technician takes in dyno tuning is to conduct an interview with the vehicle owner. The technician will ask if there are any particular problems to look for, such as a lack of power, gas mileage, difficulty starting or surging.
A technician checks the engine compression for any potential problems and also performs a visual inspection for problems that may be causing the issue, such as burnt wires, a dirty carburetor or a broken vacuum line. The technician then determines the proper heat range for your vehicles based on how you use the vehicle.
The next step is for distributor is removed and placed in a special machine where it is tested thoroughly. This test monitors the distributor under actual operating conditions, providing us with a better idea of its mechanical soundness. After we determine if the distributor is mechanically sound, we modify the centrifugal advance rate and make other adjustments to match the vehicle’s optimum settings, including maximum gas mileage. We inspect the ignition components and replace these as necessary.
