Dyno

Hey guys I'm a noob to this stuff
I was wondering what's so good about having your car do a dyno test do you get any benefits? If so what are they

A couple of things good about it IMO. If you plan do to mods to your Pony then having one as a baseline is good. As you mod the Pony you can see how those mods actually affect the performance. The HP advertised for your Mustang is not actually true; you actually have a loss of about 15% (if I remember correctly).

What avengnd said is true. But the dynos main function is that of a tool. Numbers don't mean squat because every dyno is different. A dyno is mainly used by tuners to datalog changes they make in the tune. Thus allowing them to make more changes and refine the tune without ever actually taking the car on the road. Think of it as a rolling road. Some dynos can even be load bearing to simulate factors such as drag, friction, and rolling resistance. In a ideal world you would have a baseline done at a reputable dyno and tuning shop. Then have mods done that require tuning and redyno. These numbers, given climatic changes weren't too severe, will show you how the changes that were made truly have made a difference. All while safely being able to monitor air/fuel ratios and take the variable of Johnny Law and his speed restrictions out of the equation. Advertised hp numbers are shown from the manufacturers at the crank. A dyno will show you the number at the tire. Numbers are decreased due to parasitic loss from the drivetrain. Automatics suffer from this greater then manual transmissions. Ford claims that modern drivetrains are more efficient than those of the past and says that it equates to a 10-12% loss for manuals and a 15-18% loss for automatics. Hope this helps.

Nope. Not much different than you flooring it to redline every chance you get.

Really...I know you call yourself a noob. But that's what you took from that explanation? A dyno by itself could take off your warranty as much as driving to the store would. And people wonder why most of the time my comments are not that of sharing technical help, but just the opposite. This place can be quite comical.

Gotta chill out man, everybody has to start somewhere. When I first started in this forum I knew even less. Don't take things so personal it's all in fun.

You'll learn one day that overachieving just gets you an attitude and poor people skills.

Overachieving gets you anywhere you want to be. And I never said I'm better than anyone else. In fact I said I was a noob.

A dyno is only a measurement tool and nothing else. That's about as simple as you can make it man.

Needs to be in a simpler form. Apparently he only wants yes or no answers. So.......... Yes.

yeah if a small tiny paragraph is an Essay then I agree. Plus the attitude isn't needed here. Should be thankful people here try and give real answers and not just yes and no answers. I prefer the kind of answers he gives because I like too know how things work not just be told that they work.

plus the comment about researching yourself, you are going to find the information produced in many more words and paragraphs than was presented too you. Plus the ungratefulness of your responses, wouldn't be surprised if you last long here. A lot of us won't stand for that.
