Should You Dyno Your Engine Before Installation?
For this video I’m referencing performance engine applications, not everyday driver applications.
As of this posting I’ve built 2 vehicles, the #FairmontProject, and #ETCGDadsTruck. Both builds suffered engine damage after assembly. Looking back, I wish I had run the engines on a Dyno and tuned them before installation. I feel this would have prevented these costly failures.
So what’s your take on testing and tuning your engine on a dyno before installation? Have you done it? Have you not done it and been just fine? Or did you suffer engine damage like I did because of insufficient tuning before installation?
Looking forward to your input on this one.
