Default Any dyno around here?

I want to dyno my car in the spring time after I install my guru stage 2 map kit. Is there any around here in the Toronto area?

I recall that Lenny at Automega in Toronto was planning on installing one but that was about 4 yrs ago and I haven't been back there. Ph#414-201-0102. If he doesn't have one he'll know who does

There's also a great one at ADP Motorsport in Ajax. It's even 4 wheel - so you can do your rally car there too!

Give Brad a call at 905-426-7035.

ADP Motorsport is frequent by alot of Subaru guys. From your handle you look to be a rally enthusiast, do you own a subaru as well Rally Guy?
btw, there's lots of places that have 2 wheel dynos. mind you not all dynos are the same....

If we get a few guys together, maybe we could do a dyno day and get a deal. Anyone else?

Sounds like a good idea. I think we should set it up sometime in the spring time after i buy my MAP.

Agreed, let's say Saturday May 1. Anyone who might be interested, post here. I'll follow up next April.

I'll probably ask for a deposit to reserve a spot, depending on what numbers the tuner needs to give us a deal. The deposit would be non-refundable, unless there happens to be a waiting list or we already have the minimum number.

I've heard of one guy with a mobile unit that charges $100, maybe we could get a deal with him. Apparently the PCA UCR chapter has used him, so I will follow up next year when we have a better idea of numbers and where most people are located.

So, in the meantime, just leave a post here.

Be very carful when using Mobile Dyno facilities, the large number of road miles,bumps, and bangs..can do a Dyno in in no time. These units have very sensitive brake-out boards, that are extremely sensitive to vibrations, and banging. As well im curious as to the insurace issue, i recently had to sell, my in ground DynoJet because of insurance rates, 1000% increase.

Better to stick with a well maintained facility like :


D.L. Motorsports, who has a properly calibrated chassis dyno, with proportunate brake for load tuning, and a 5-gas analyzer, to see A/F ratios.

These mobile guys, do they just provide a service, or are they acredited tuners, with mobile facilities.

I'll keep that in mind, thanks.

I know Mantis took their's out to put in an emissions dyno, maybe the insurance factor helped their decision.

I don't even know the name of the mobile guy yet, but we'll have lots of time to find out what's available by April.
