DYNO Testing recommendation please

Hi guys,

Does anyone have any suggestions for good accurate independent performance testing companies based Guildford way or at least in the South, I'd like to get an accurate report on BHP/Torque on my R35?

Many Thanks

Great thanks, i remember it being suggested these dynos can somehow be potentially harmful to the car and inaccurate, any views on this?

Important to go to a place that has experience with R35s as strapping them down correctly is a tricky business.

Doing a couple of runs will not harm your car in any way whatsoever.

Or you could just go to abbey with their temperature controlled dyno room and have it strapped straight to the hubs without any wheels spin and inaccurate figures due to intake temps.

Fourthed. Used SRR a few times for various cars and seen them do an R35 with no probs. Charlie knows his stuff when it comes to dynos.

There is an interesting article in the NEWS section of this website that you should also read before going anywhere. It's very detailed but will give you a lot of insight and information before you go
