Mustang Dyno TuningIn a continuing effort to provide a better driving experience for our customers, PickupsPlusCars as added new Mustang Dynamometer AWD-500-SE load bearing dyno to our shop.

This dyno was custom built for us by Mustang to fit a wide variety of needs and applications.  With an outer track width of 98" and the ability to do all-wheel-drive vehicles of up to 154" wheelbase it is the largest AWD-500-SE Mustang has ever built.

What is a load bearing dyno?  Most dynos measure how fast you spin the roller from a beginning rpm to an ending rpmDyno Turning Columbus, Cleveland, Toledo give a horsepower and torque reading from there.  No matter what the vehicle weighs, the rollers of the dyno always weigh the same amount.  A load bearing dyno works a little bit differently.  On our dyno we input the weight of the vehicle and also the aerodynamic factor of the vehicle being tested.  From there, through the use of an Eddy Current Power Absorption Unit, the rollers are loaded to simulate actual vehicle weight and even more load is added as the vehicle accelerates simulating wind resistance as well.  With a load bearing setup  the vehicle actually accelerates as it would on the street.  A load bearing dyno is also not limited to wide open throttle horsepower sweeps like the other dynos.  Low speed drivability, 0-60 runs, ¼ mile runs, inclines, and towing simulation are just a few of the tests that can only be done on a load bearing dyno like the AWD-500-SE.
