Default Dyno Questions

I am now enrolled at Wyo Tech(Wyoming Tech) and going to attend for about 12 months to complete the high performance engine, service management on on ........ so my friend and I are both going to return to Omaha NE upon graduating and hopefully open our own tuning shop. What are the pros and cons to having a dyno? Is the demand there? The closest dyno in the area thats awd is Kansas city I beleive. Any suggestions or advice will be appreciated.

Somehow you need to pay the lease on the 50-100k for the dyno. Thats the downside.

as we've seen in michigan it's who's operating the dyno, not who owns it

http://www.ayaracing.com/

This guy is local and has a 5 star clean shop with a very nice dyno and wheel alignment rack, but about as capable as a 5 year old. We baselined a stg2 wrx and it made 150whp/400tq, furthermore we were informed UTEC is junk and it's AEM EMS or nothin... also, he informed us you won't make power on a subaru unless you're tuned 12.5:1 on 93 (Is he going to buy me a new motor?!)

so yeah his business is a flop and he's never turned out any properly tuned cars regardless of the setup/engine... make sure you got the skills first

HINT: someone needs to buy this guy's shack and put this equipment to proper use

Also keep in mind that mobile dyno units can be extremely useful/profitable. There aren't that terribly many options for promoters and event organizers who wish to offer dyno services at their events.
It involves travel and the service of the unit becomes extremely important, but you'd be surprised how many guys will drop $40 bucks for a dyno pull.....or $100 for three. Once you get it loaded and strapped down your hard work is done.

Thanks for the advice. Yea definently depends on the experience, not the dyno. Money shouldn't be an issue. Have been saving for well ever since I can remember. I am just excited to bring the service to my local area to help out the suby's.
