All those who live in Wisconsin and the U.P. of Mich.

I'm kicking the Idea around about buying a Engine dyno for my shop ..
My biggest question is will I get enough business to keep it busy and help to pay it off ...

I've been looking at the Super flow SF902 and also the DTS Powermark system.

Anyone have input on this Dream....
Or should I wake up ...

Also Land And Sea has a few differant pakages too ..

Little more info

If I was to get this Dyno I'd opt. for the 1600 H.p. model.. the nearest dyno is 60 miles away but will only handle 800 H.P. the and I think there's a 1600 model in Oshkosh WI and they are 120 miles away .
And I'm in the heart of circle track racers with tracks in a doz. or so city and Drag racing in Kaukauna WI and Off road racing in 4 towns near by.
and a doz. or so Truck Pullers just in my area.

So I know there's a few engines that would need to be dyno'ed just don't know if you can get some of them to do it ...

ShaZam,

I voted for the DTS on your poll, because that's what we use and I'm naturally biased towards them.

Lem and I just got through dynoing Bobby Z's 588 CID engine yesterday and took it off the dyno this morning. The unusual thing about his engine, is that he bought the A-460 heads, old style single 4 intake manifold, cam and valvetrain from Phillip Oakley back in 2002. At that time in 2001, when we dynoed Phillip's engine it we made 935 or so Hp with a 572 CID. Yesterday we used the same dyno headers and dynoed Bobby's engine in worse air/humidity but still corrected for, and made 940-942 Hp. So the DTS is not worn out after 5 years of service and the data is repeatable.

Personally I think the only other choice would be the SuperFlow and I actually started dynoing on them back in 1994 at other people's shops.

The guys down at Holley Carbs have one of each, (SuperFlow and DTS) in their R&D department. I asked their dyno operator which one he preferred and he said the DTS.

I do know one shop in Indiana that has a little Land & Sea and their are sick of it. They have pretty much had to plow their own ground in terms of tech support, computer programs and etc.

Hope this helps,

Charlie Evans
