During our week in Mooresville, NC, we couldn’t leave town before visiting Pete Harrell and his shop, Harrell Engine & Dyno. We stopped by to see what engines Pete was building, what cars he was tuning and what other cool things he was working on. He was kind enough to give us the full tour.
Being able to see the horsepower and the direct correlation to what is lost in the driveline is invaluable – dynos offer a myriad of benefits for the modern engine shop.
Dynojet’s 424xLC2 chassis dyno measures up to 2,000 hp / 2,000 ft.-lbs. of torque and 200 mph for all popular AWD vehicles today.
There are a ton of different reasons engine builders would want a hub, chassis or engine dyno, so we looked into why you might opt for a particular dyno over another, or why you may want multiple dynos.
We join Steve in his shop as he puts this twin 66mm turbo LQ9 through the paces on the chassis dyno. The customer is looking to get some more horsepower out of it for Drag Week.
