Power Run: – This consists of carrying out a full throttle power test to determine bhp and torque at the wheels and calculated flywheel figures, at the same time where possible we will monitor boost, fuelling using wideband lambda sensor and knock with Phormula or HKS Knock detection.
Full Dyno Session: – Checks carried out to ignition operation, fuelling system, engine management fault codes and live data, adjustments made where possible .Carry out a full throttle power test to determine bhp and torque at the wheels and calculated flywheel figures, at the same time where possible we will monitor boost, fuelling using wideband lambda sensor and knock with Phormula or HKS Knock detection.
Pre Test Conditions: – The customer must make sure the vehicle is in a fit state to dyno test: – fluid levels are topped up oil, water, tyres are in good condition and correctly inflated, the cooling system must be free from defects and functioning correctly, the exhaust must be gas tight as we need to take samples from the tail pipe and leaks will dilute these readings.
Please ensure an adequate level of fuel of the type that you would normally use in the vehicle especially where the vehicle is booked in for mapping as large quantities’ can be consumed.
For the purposes of accurate performance testing and best results you must be satisfied that all relevant components are in sound condition , for example , spark plugs, injectors, turbochargers, ignition system should all be sound otherwise the results may not represent the true performance of the vehicle. The rolling road may of course be used to establish the cause or source of the problem.
Securing the car: – There must be means to attach securing straps to the vehicle if not we may not be able to power test it .In these circumstances where we have spent the normal time on the rolling road the agreed charges will still apply. Please note cars that are extremely low or with body kits fitted may have problems with clearance if you think your car may be a problem please consult us first.
Safety:– The customer must conform to the safety instructions given by Clive Atthowe Tuning personnel, particularly regarding safe distances and noise protection , please observe safety notices and no entry signs. Failure to adhere to safety instructions will result in immediate cessation of any rolling road testing until the testing area has been made safe.
