Reviews - What do customers think about Dyno Testing and Tuning (S-A Desi (Performance How-To)?
If you are looking to do any dyno work this is a must read! Jun 27, 2008
Lots of good info about dyno tuning using both a chassis and engine dyno. My favorite parts of the book were the formulas to check dyno numbers against track numbers and vice versa. I also really liked the part about the questions to ask when you interview a shop. I am in the process of finding a chassis dyno so this was really beneficial. There were two chapters that went over my head a bit but, overall a good read.
Dyno Testing and Tuning Jun 26, 2008
I believe this book should be mandatory reading for anyone operating a dynamometer or using dynamometer services. It provides a fundamental knowledge on what to expect from the dynamometer and how to get the most from your time spent using the dynamometer. The focus is on water brake engine dynamometers and chassis dynamometers using eddy current power absorption units. The book is not a scripted tuning session, specifying exactly what to do for each engine tuning anomally. It does provide a great foundation for where to begin and what to look for during a tuning session. In my job, I teach people how to use a dynamometer every week. I wish each dynamometer manufacturer would include this book with the purchase of their dyno, and then make it mandatory reading prior to my training session with the new customer.
Dyno testing! I don't think so! Jun 2, 2008
The book, I believe, did not live up to my expections. The author only just touches on spark timing (MBT), and a little on lambda. He does not go every deep into tuning. The type of information that I would like to have seen for example would be say, when you see the egt's start to go down and the cht's coming back up you need to re adjust the timing. No I do not think this book is that informative.

Not as informative as I had hoped. I can use much of the information, but I was hoping for more detail
