Dyno Checklist

Fresh engine oil and filter

Please make sure you have changed the engine oil and filter within the last 500-1000km depending on horsepower level.

New spark plugs

New spark plugs are very important to avoid diagnosing misfires on the dyno.

Fuel filter with less than 25000km's if equipped

Nothing worse than diagnosing fuel pressure drop during pulls

Fix those leaks

Please make sure you car is well maintained and not leaking oil everywhere. Not only can it be a fire hazard but leaves a mess behind.

Tires in good condition and at proper pressure

Tires on the dyno heat up a lot more than the road and can blow very easily causing damage to your wheel and the dyno.

Exhaust system in good condition

While tuning we sometimes need to measure the AFR's if vehicle is not equipped with it from factory. If your exhaust system is leaking the AFR reading will be inconsistent leading to a inconsistent tune.

Boost/vacuum leak check

Make sure the car has no boost/vacuum leaks. You can leave a lot of power on the table if tuned with one. Even worse the car will not run as well as it could.

Check engine light

If the check engine light is on for any mechanical or electrical issues please make sure they are resolved before dyno session. Let us know prior to arriving what the codes are and we can let you know if it will effect the tune.

Fresh fuel

Make sure you have at least 1/4 to 1/2 a tank of the fuel you plan on using on the car. No point in filling the car with a higher octane level for the tune the running lower octane afterwards. 

Clutch in good working condition

Please make sure the clutch is in good condition and is capable of handling the power you are aiming for.

Suspension height

Our ramps are low profile but if you you can't fit 4 fingers between the front lip and the ground adjust the vehicle height prior to coming in.

If car needs a bit of work let us know prior to the dyno session so that we can repair them at our shop

The dyno shop is not as well equipped as our shop so if the car needs work let us know and we will be happy to make all the repairs prior to. We recommend a pre dyno inspection at our shop to ensure the tuning session goes smoothly.
