Getting onto Dyno

I'd like to get my car onto a Dyno to see how much power it's actually making, does anyone have a recomendation of where to get it done? Or alternatively the next FF/Club Dyno Day in Melbourne?

I recommend Herrods myself. I got dynoed at 180 ish RwKw and have done better times and trap speed than others that have been measured at 220+ RwKw .. so it seems that their dyno is somewhat more conservative and IMO anyway, realistic.

There are plenty of Dyno's around, some more accurate than others. Depends on what you want to spend and how far you want to travel.

What area are you in?

I'm in the Eastern Suburbs, I looked up Dyno Dynamics and there are a gazillion of them close but I'd be interested in Herrods because of his expertise etc, but that would of course come with a cost.

Any idea what it's worth to get onto Herrod's Dyno, just for a run no tune or anything.

Exactly,couldn't have said it better myself,especially about the final results compared to others(IMO).
