I have talked with several shops, it is up to Jerry as to which Dyno he wants to use! It could be a dynojet or a Mustang Dyno!

I think he said he would run it for free, on the Dyno or the track. Didn't you say he could drive it for the weekend he was here?

see if he'll do it at Triangle Speed Shop in Orange...that is a true Mustang dyno...you will see "real" numbers as compared to a dynojet internet numbers...and the tune will be better b/c it's tuned under a real load.

plus Daniel and those guys are great and will shoot you straight w/ anything you ask them.

Sorry, I know Daniel is a good guy but some of the folks getting tunes done when he comes don't want to drive to the LA border to use a Dyno. Scott, Dynojet has also incorporated the Eddy Current on their models as well so they can be "loaded" as well.
It will be local most likely.

just thought i would throw that out b/c they are a very good shop and do very good work.

when you say they can be loaded, what do you mean? they add resistance on the dyno or can you just enter the weight of the car? from what i understand and have read, getting it tuned on a true mustang dyno is the closest thing to getting it tuned on the street w/ a wideband.

i just question a lot of the numbers you see around on these dynos. of course the true test is to take it to the track and see if the times can back up the big numbers.

anyway, getting jerry down to tune it would be very cool no matter what dyno is chosen.

NO, he said if I bought a GT he would tune it for free :p
He is not allowed to come down untill I can get all the mods done to the GT :D :doubt:

Scott, this is off of Dynojet's website.
EDDY CURRENT LOAD CONTROL
Includes the Eddy Current Load Absorption Unit, Torque Cell, and Dynamic Load Control software. Perform loaded tests, including step, sweep, and wind drag simulation (pit or above ground).



This is the exact same thing Mustang uses to "load" the car and make the car spin the drums by adding a sort of "brake" to the drums till it sees the actual weight of the vechile entered.
In the past Dynojet Dynos Were "unloaded" meaning you were only spinning the 2500lb. Drums and not the entire weight of the vechile. This is where the Mustang Dyno was better as it made the car spin the drums to the entire weight of the car on the dyno. This is why Dynojet Dyno's always showed higher numbers and tuners would have to set A/F a 1/2 to a full piint lower than what they wanted. this way if on the dyno the set it at 11.0 when the full weight of the car hit the street is usually Leaned out to the 11.5-12.0 A/F that the tuner wanted to. On A Mustang Dyno you could set A/F where you wanted it and that intern would transfer to the street as it was tuned with the full weight of the vechile.
Hope this helps.

Considering most parts are on back order :mad: , I will not be spending any money :cool: .

Now get your ar$$ over here and get to work :rotf: :rotf: :rotf: I just had 20 yards of mulch delivered from Louisiana. I want you to shift through it and pull out the Formosa termites one by one before you spread it. Oh yeah, I also had them stop by the dairy and add some fertilizer to it :eek: , smells really good :thumbsup:

That'll cost you twice what I charge as I'll be turning the mulch which is in bank cubic yards into LOOSE cubic yards and therefore you have to add in the SWELL percentage. Because it swells it makes my job harder so I get to charge more. :D :p

I charge $300 for 10 yards of mulch.....so let me know. :thumbsup:

I'm interested in the tune. I just need exact date, price and a SCT tuner. I have a wedding to be in on April 22nd and I'm busy April 8th.

That is cool that the dynojet is incorporating this, BUT, is this a feature that can be just turned on, or does a shop need to buy a new dynojet or the additional parts? Logic would lead me to believe that if this is a new feature, every existing dynojet shop in town will NOT have this unless they are buying a new dynojet or additional parts.

I would totally jump in on this deal of getting a tune from Jerry if I had mods worthy of it.

Forgot the quote, sorry.
All this sounds like a load of **** to me. :p


Joey when are you going to move from secretary to getting your own dyno. :rotf:

thanks for the info...i wonder if any of the local tuners have installed this software or not.

and i would still like to see someone dyno on a dynojet w/ this software and then take it to a mustang dyno and see the difference.

i am going back to Triangle Speed Shop next friday to adjust my tune b/c of the install of the LT's. i'll bring those numbers to whatever shop Jerry chooses and then i'll strap it on their dyno and see the difference.

Depending on cost, I would like a spot.
