Default MPS Dyno Progress Pics

UPDATE:
Finished wiring up all the fans today. All fans tested well.

Dyno room is waiting on the garage door, a few protective grills (over the fans) and a lot of mud/tape/paint.

Dyno was fired up on monday and the control module failed almost instantly. The module is being shipped back and they are replacing it. I should have it back by the first of next week. Hopefully if all goes well, I'll have a car on it by the 1st to do all the calibrations and shakedown.

Observation room is also waiting mud/tape/texture/paint/wallpaper/lightingfixtures/furniture/PS3/computermonitor/flooring.... *SIGH*

Please see updated photos!

What's behind this door?



Looks like the fans from Willy Wonka's factory...


Dyno and lift


something interesting about the van on the lift....



IT'S SUBARU POWERED!!


The car entrance:


one exhaust fan and plenum- there's a matching one on the other side


the 2nd exhaust fan- missing the plenum cover- removed for painting and sealing of the plenum. This brings the number of exhaust fans to 3



Dyno computer, printer and observation window

Looks great! I've never seen a fan set up like that, very unique idea...

Side note: That WRB STI is beautiful.

This whole thing is so awesome for me to see come to life. It has been my vision for years of what a real dyno room should look like. Now that I have an awesome group of people backing me up, it's an amazing opportunity for me to do things the right way. No more CO headaches and crappy tunes from a hot room with poor ventilation. I can tune a car with the hood shut and have a tune that is representative of the car as it will ACTUALLY perform.

that WRB STi was in Super Street and it's awesome!

not to sound like someone taking an award at the oscars or anything (I'm just really excited and very appreciative), but I really would like to publicly thank a few people at this time.

*John and Gwen Maxwell for giving me this opportunity
*Craig and Wes. My right hand man and my ass pimple.
*Eric and Mark- for knocking out a ton of drywall and framing
*Kevin Hill (seen in one photo hanging insulation) for a TON of work framing, insulating, anchoring etc etc. He has been instrumental.
*Aubrey and his roommate for wiring up the 220V panel

Have you measured the windspeed and flow produced by those fans?

How closely will they match *real* driving flows?

Can you adjust them based on car gear/rpm?

Looks good, I was just interested

Looks good guys! You should put the plane on the dyno and see what kind of numbers it puts down! I bet its a lot since it has to fly and all, lol.

They also have an engine dyno that they use for the airplane engines. It's N/A and puts out about 200hp.

There should be 50 to 60 mph winds from what I've herd but they don't have the garage door on the back of the room so they can't test the wind speed or flow yet.

the dyno does have an output for variable fan control (based on roller speed). Right now, getting it up and running is the priority. We can work out the little things later.

As silver said, we can't get true wind speeds until we get the rear door installed. The exhaust fans aren't sucking from the room enough to help guide the airflow and raise the wind speed by lowering pressure in the room.

Im not sure if I should accuse you of not getting the joke, or getting it but ruining my fun

Im aware of the engine dyno, I was trying to make a joke about a plane on a roller dyno, lol.

Sounds great, may convince me to pay for a pull after my road tune to get some numbers...

Edit, on that note have my 3x GS gasket sets and GS BCS shown up (Brent Hunsinger)? I should come up and pay you for those soon...

Which control module did they send you? A replacement for the one you had or the wireless unit?
