SA Tuning has a fully equipped 4wd linked Dyno in its own Dyno Cell. This is a chance for you to see exactly what BHP your car is running. A graph is produced after each Dyno run and a copy will be supplied to you. We can also perform before and after Dyno runs when you have a remap with us.
Some brief information about our dyno
A chassis dynamometer, sometimes referred to as a rolling road, measures power delivered to the surface of the drive roller by the drive wheels. Power and torque using a chassis dyno can be measured in three ways – inertial measurement (during acceleration), measurement in load mode (during acceleration) and measurement with a balance of forces (braked).
To obtain an inertial measurement, a car is accelerated to its maximum revs on the dyno, declutched and allowed to slow to a stop naturally on the roller (without using the brake). Therefore, the true losses can be calculated through the drivetrain of the vehicle.
The inertial measurement has the following advantages:
It is more accurate
It is safer for the engine
Excessive cooling methods are not necessary
Our inertia dyno uses new technology, originally intended for laboratory use. The methodology applied is based on TrueForce™, which allows for a smooth measurement of torque. Considering the speed of the force changes on the dyno, the measurement is made in real time and with unbelievable accuracy.
