  • dyno question

    the builder will break in & set up the engine for my coupe on a dyno
    . so I am wondering if there is any reason that later on I have it chassis dynoed ?

    thanks, Keith

    it`s nice to be important but it is more important to be nice.

    Maybe just for bragging rights on having a legit number at the rear wheels?

      i agree, once the engine is set up a tuned on the engine dyno, there is no need to run it on a chassis dyno.

        Unless you want the exact RWHP number, you can get a reasonable estimate just by reducing the crank HP by 20% for a automatic or 15% for a manual.

        Chassis dynos are great for fine tuning your carb and timing, though.

          It will show you how much you are losing thru the drivetrain. The looser the converter, the more you lose to the wheels.
