If you are worried about a certain tuner specifically you shouldn't go to that tuner and find a reputable one.

If you are worried about problems on the dyno engine related, you shouldn't be modding cars in the first place.

I keep seeing these videos of people having accidents while driving on the roads. Do you guys know any roads I can drive on where nothing will happen to me?

Since it appears that you have a high aversion to risk, you should not tune your car.

I know MANY Subaru oriented dyno shops who still dont understand you cant use the rear lateral links to strap a Subaru down onto the dyno.

There are still alternatives. An AP will do well if you stick like glue to the parts that they have a tune for. You also can do a road tune. The result of either of these is a well tuned car without knowing a direct power/torque number. If I were to tune my car, it's the route I would take personally. I've had modified cars and when people ask me how much power it has (with that kind of tone where you know they're a jerk looking to 1 up you), I'll tell them 1.21 Jiggawatts or 12 thousand horsepower or 13 horsepower or "I don't have any idea". The real answer was that I didn't have an accurate idea....I had some idea but it's not worth spending money to me to know what that number is.

If you're that worried don't do it. It's the same thing as doing a couple pulls on the road and actually safer since you are on a dyno. Your car is improperly strapped then you can sue the company or car shop, because it is their negligence that caused it. You can get a compression test etc to make sure your car is up to par. I don't know what you are so afraid of. If your tuner is good and you are going to a good shop and your car is running strong then I see it no different as doing a couple pulls on the road. In actuality getting a proper tune makes your car run better and more reliable in the long run. Stop being a little baby and go get your car dyno'd and post the video on youtube if it falls off so I can laugh at you.

I've had issues every time I've put a car on a dyno. My car fell off the dyno 3 times and one time it was intentional. Two times after that my engine spun a bearing. After that I was rapped by 3 hot women. You take the good with the bad.

I have had cars on the dyno, and never worried about it. But I don't stand next to the car either. Not scared doesn't mean stupid.

Think about it.

But look, here's a story for you. A Guy on another forum has a MORBID fear of flying. Has had it his whole life. Other forum members talk him into taking a flight to ''cure'' his fear. Plane crashes, everyone dies.

TRUE STORY.

And the moral ? If it REALLY doesn't feel right, DON'T DO IT !!!

No, I am not kidding, I'm trying to be helpful. Now move along.
