Kiran,

The engine has arrived but not yet installed.

PS - @KS - Can you clarify what the below means taken from your website.

"Only minor adjustments can be done while the car is on the roller.
Minor adj means tuning the fuel maps, changing jets, ignition timing adjs, etc. should be done within 30 mins. "


Does it mean that a run comprises of 30 mins or what does the above refer to.

Viper

No one (atleast wrt to myself) is thinking twice about dynoing my car. Its just that I am trying to set my goals straight on what to expect and what not to.
I totally agree with the above view.

Dont get us wrong Karan, this is a huge investment by you, not only in terms of money, but time, and effort in making this happen. It is appreciated, and hopefully people and tuners will make the most of this tuning tool you have provided.

Isn't there some law or ARAI statute that says you cannot do a dyno run on a stock car without the manufacturer's consent? Remember reading it somewhere (maybe even on Team BHP)

There is a rule which is more viable by RTO that engine transplants are illegal without RTO consent but we still do it don't we?

Viper,
This means that if u would want to do any adjustment,it will have to be done within 30 mins if the car is still on the rollers.If it has to take longer than 30 mins,then the car has to be pulled off the rollers.

Thanks
Karan

I know I will never be able to recover the money by just doing dyno runs.This is a tool i will use to perfect my tunning capabilities.I have not got it to challenge any car manufacturer.It will be a tunners pleasure to use.
Thats the spirit! Well said.

Are you open to telling us what brand and model of dynamometer do you offer for use?

So how many people have relished the result of using the Dyno. I dont see many posts in that regard.

Any updates on this, as to how some car(s) figured? Or is it not yet been properly used for verification of modification effectiveness.

We should get readings of bone stock cars , we can use this as a baseline for understanding how much horsepower is actually being claimed by the manufacturers.
Im sure everyone will be shocked with the actual BHP figures as compared to the manufacturer claims.

chetanhanda - i hope you are considering the fact that manufacturers claim are from measurements made at the engine crank, while a rolling dyno measures at the wheels after all the transmission losses etc have taken place which is much lower. In some cases they make assumptions on losses and add the same to the wheel bhp number to get u to the final bhp. This may not be accurate, but yet can be used as a baseline, if all cars are being measured on the same dyno (in our case true because we have only one dyno ), as then the transmission losses assumption will be constant

Heres my earlier post on the same http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/503309-post83.html

and a good article Puma Race Engines Technical Guide - Measuring Engine power - engine dynos and rolling road dynos

Cheers,

duuuuuuuuude please , Im quite aware manufacturers like to state the power at the crank because it sounds good, but thanks for the interesting links.
What we are concerned is how much power the car delivers at the wheels so definately people will be shocked when they see how much power the dyno indicates.
