Dyno Checklist

Fresh engine oil and filter

Please make sure you have changed the engine oil and filter within the last 500-1000 KM 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 25,000 KM's if equipped

Nothing worse than diagnosing fuel pressure drop during pulls.

Fix all leaks

Please make sure you car is well maintained and not leaking oil everywhere. Oil leaks are a fire hazard and leave 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 need to monitor the AFR. If your exhaust system is leaking, the AFR reading will be inconsistent leading to an 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 it is tuned with a leak. 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 these issues are resolved before your dyno session. Prior to arriving, let us know what the codes are. We will 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 lowest octane fuel you plan on using in the car. Please don't put a higher octane fuel in for the tune if you plan on running lower octane afterwards. 

Clutch is 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, however, you must be able to fit four fingers between the front lip and the ground. Please adjust the vehicle height prior to coming in if needed.

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

The dyno shop is not as well equipped as our shop so if the car needs work, let us know before hand. We are happy to do the repairs. We recommend a pre-dyno inspection at our shop to ensure the tuning session goes smoothly.
