What is Dyno Tuning?
Dyno tuning is when you take what you have and make the most of it by tweaking the ignition system and then the carburetor or fuel injection system. The purpose of super tuning is to achieve maximum performance. Since factory engineers need to balance performance with emissions, noise and fuel economy, the car isn’t initially setup for maximum performance.
A Brief History in Dyno Tuning
In the beginning, before the advent of dynamometers and data logging equipment, performance tuning was accomplished at the track by utilizing one’s understanding of the fundamentals of internal combustion engines and lots of trial and error. Over the years, many “rules of thumb” were developed to guide tuners in their efforts to set up various combinations. For a given combination, tuners would begin with a conservative setup and then sneak up on the optimum fuel and spark requirements by analyzing what little information was available and by using “rules of thumb” to make changes to the setup.
Due to the lack of accurate, meaningful information, tuners inevitably made changes to the system that degraded horsepower and/or damaged the equipment.
Today, with the advent of the information system and the proliferation of silicon-based electronics, many meaningful attributes can be measured and manipulated to optimize the performance of an internal engine.
Sensors that measure temperature, pressure, acceleration, velocity, distance, gas, electromagnetic frequency, and intensity can be utilized to record exhaust gas temperature, blower boost, engine torque, engine speed, ignition timing, and exhaust gas oxygen content.
