How to Get a Dyno Ready
Along with running the dyno at DYNOMotive, Eric Weinrich is an expert when it comes to carburetion and ignition systems. When he's finished tuning an engine, you know it's as good as it's going to get. But, as talented as Eric is, there is something that can be done to help the process and make the best use of the dyno time available--arrive prepared. It's not uncommon for first-timers to show up for a dyno session and then waste valuable time rounding up parts, su plies, and information. To help make the most of the opportunity, here are a few simple tips:
