What is Dyno Tuning?

A Dyno or Dynamometer is a piece of equipment used to measure the power output to the wheels on your vehicle. The car is strapped down to the dyno drum and various sensors are hooked up for monitoring purposes. Typically Wide Open Throttle (WOT) pulls are done to measure power output while datalogging what the computer is doing at the same time. This information is then used to edit the tune on the vehicle until it is running properly and power output is as expected.

Although Remote Tuning has been a great advancement in late model tuning, the Palm Beach Dyno Dynojet 224x is a critical piece of equipment that has a huge impact on all of our tuning, not just the car sitting on the dyno at the time. This is where the magic happens! Our successful remote tuning customers benefit from the amount of R&D we do on the dyno with local customers and people who decide to make the trip. Our dyno room is set up more like a lab, with a full suite of data logging equipment that allows us to be very critical of the tuning in a controlled environment.

While it's usually best to drop the car off at our facility so we have the proper time to not only dyno it but also take it out for some road tuning, that is not always possible for customers that are traveling. For those customers, we have a very comfortable air conditioned waiting room with a television, live video feed from the dyno room and dyno gauges and horsepower readout.
