Historically, PWR's engine development/tuning has consisted of three distinct phases for new engine configurations: initial base fuel/ignition map tuning on an engine dynometer, followed by road/track drivability refinement and, finally, test time on a standard inertia chassis dyno to address any remaining map issues if applicable and determine final horsepower and torque.

A now extensive archive of engine configuration data and base maps has decreased PWR's reliance on the engine dyno and purchasing SuperFlow's new Autodyne 30 Eddy current chassis dynometer has virtually eliminated the need for it by combining all three development phases into one very sophisticated function that is better than those individual phases it replaces. As we develop this site, we'll explain how the following attributes in Eddy current absorber operating mode will benefit you with a more efficiently tuned, accurately measured and superior operating street, DE or race car.

In Standard Inertia Operation
Wide open throttle single gear performance runs.
Wide open all gear performance runs.

Under Eddy Current Absorber Operation
Controlled acceleration.
Speed Step.
Drive Cycle.
Track Simulation.

Follow along as we construct, setup and make functional a dedicated test cell that will be used as a template by SuperFlow in their instructional material as the recommended installation/operational setup for this particular model. We'll post pictures sequentially by category as we go, INITIAL CONSTRUCTION then SETUP & TESTING and finally DYNO RESULTS. The latter will become our online archive for publishing dyno results along with video of more noteworthy and interesting power plants like the latest 2.61litre twin turbo on schedule for completion in the spring.
