Re: Dyno power run after engine rebuild?
OK first things first...
1 you dont need to run a roller cam in
2 Mate if it takes 5-6 hrs to run an engine on a dyno then they saw you comming a mile away
3 Power runs are done to try to extract every last drop of horsepower from an engine by adjusting timing,fuel,spark This doesnt really apply to an EECV unless you are running sometype of adjustable engine management system.
4 Come dont charge $600 to "Run" an engine in on the dyno, THEY charge $600 to set up that engine for the best power output it can get by changing fuel,spark etc for what running gear it has ie exhaust system etc.
Personally I had mine "Run In" on the dyno inwhich was done in 1 hr Yes mate read that 1 hour, once it was in the car I was able to give it $hit so to speak. It was done how you stated under varying loads & rpm, once done the engine oil was dumped & the engine fitted to my car.
Chiptorque had done the "Power Runs" on a dyno inwhich i got 321 rwhp/455 nm torque.
