One needs to see the huge power supply for this sucker to believe it, it is huge! When the fan kicks on all the lights in Torrance and Gardena dim. This fan can create wind speeds of over 140 mph and is linked to the dyno to duplicate the road speed of the dyno’s rollers.
There are many other fans that also provide air exchange in the dyno room and keep a strong breeze around the main airflow. This keeps the air constitution of the dyno room consistent and also helps control the overall temperature.
We used the AEM Electronics CD-5 to monitor the engine’s AFR and self-learning parameters to make sure the ECU was jiving with the headers so the engine could be run hard without leaning out or anything dangerous like that. The logging dash will also be used to log and view in real-time important engine info coming through the CAN stream such as fluid temps, ignition timing, intake air temp, throttle position and manifold pressure.
We ran our car with 8 consecutive power pulls to collect our baseline data. With the World Motorsports Dyno’s killer airflow and temperature control it was easy to get the car’s power to stabilize after only two pulls and the car ran very consistently after that. Our average baseline power was 368 whp and 346 lb-ft of torque.
