Default Looking for a steady state dyno (and/or tuner) in the NoVA area

Ideally to rent time on, but a tuner that's willing to leave my map unlocked would also suffice.

Mach V is an Awesome shop. I got my 2.5 hybrid build done by them, my tune by them, and I Also by alot of parts from them. Good people, and they know what they are doing with out a doubt.

I don't know if that's up to date or not, but that's a good starting point.

I had to google steady state - but if Mustang is one of the options for you, CBRD in York PA has a Mustang dyno. They have done all the ECU tuning on my Evo and they work on Subarus as well. It's PA but it's a pretty short drive.

Diebold Autosport has a Dyno Dynamics. Not sure if he's willing to rent time on it but worth a phone call. http://www.dieboldautosport.com/

You know who I am :P I didn't think you had a steady state though.. I have AVCS and cruising timing to play with, hence the desire to rent dyno time on a steady state.

Yes, A++ for MachV - they do much of my service work. Now that Zach moved though, I'm sad :C

99% of "Tuning" shops have inertial dynos - good really only for measuring power, and tuning for open loop/acceleration. A steady state is used for holding constant load, so I can tune for "cruising" and "normal driving" conditions

Inertia dynos w/load controllers can perform step tests for loaded partial throttle tuning. Dynojets with WinPep 8 are pretty good at it.

You could update that thread with that information for future folks.

I would also contend that 99% of "tuning" shops don't let customers use their dynos

can you tell us more about this (setup details, driving impressions, output, etc.)... does Mach V have a standard recipe for getting this done? I've got a VF30/vishnu stage 2 (stage 4) setup that has run great for years with 145K on the clock with piston slap and a misfire code that I fear is about to go pop! I love this damn car, it has an AndrewTech-built LGT gearset transmission/center diff still going strong.

I did search for your build thread but didn't find.

I'm considering my options...
