The Dynojet 248 is the industry
standard and the dyno choice of Speed Engineering.
What Is a Dyno?
An automotive chassis dyno is a tool that is used to measure the Horsepower and Torque of a given vehicle at the tires. The most common uses for a chassis dyno are finding out the amount of power you are putting to the ground and tuning a performance vehicle as we do here.
How Does The Dyno Work?
First The Computer Must Calculate The Force Force = Mass x Acceleration
"The force required to accelerate an object is proportional to the mass of the object and the acceleration given it."
LAW OF MOTION
Second The Computer
Has To Calculate The Work
Work = Force x Distance
Third The Computer
Can Calculate The Power
Power = Work / Time
The truth meter
The Dynojet Chassis Dyno is the truth meter
that blazed the trail for making the aftermarket performance world more
honest about power claims. Before Dynojet the average guy couldn't
afford to check the claims made by the performance companies when he felt
like the power he paid for wasn't there. Now it is just a matter of
finding the nearest Dynojet and spending an hour learning exactly where and
how the power was changed. This shouldn't be too difficult since
Dynojet is the most widely used Dyno in the country.
Why Use a Dynojet?
Our Dynojet Research 248 Dynamometer is the industry standard in chassis dynos. It will support up to 1200 RWHP and 200 MPH pulls. It also features a 48" Drum Diameter and a 26" Drum Width. This makes it possible for us to dyno vehicles with axle widths ranging from 29.5" to 81.5". The factory calibrated balanced drums and precision electronics make it possible to have timing accuracy to +/-1 microsecond, drum speed accuracy to +/-1/100th MPH , and an RPM accuracy to +/-1/10th RPM. This results in perfect, repeatable horsepower and torque every pull. It is easy to see why Dynojet has gotten the reputation as being the industry standard and the top performer in the dyno world. Dynojet has also became the officially licensed NASCAR dynamometer, where even the smallest detail does not go unnoticed.
The other chassis dyno brands make all sorts of claims but the bottom line is this... There is simply no other chassis dyno more accurate, more reliable, or more repeatable than the Dynojet. All the others compare themselves to Dynojet because of this. Also don't be fooled by the other brands "dynojet mode" as it has proven to be inaccurate and inconsistent every time we have done a direct comparison. Stick with the dyno that will provide you with true horsepower, because true horsepower equals true performance.
