Engine Dynamometer Power Check - $511 per hour

Use this basic performance test at the engine's rated conditions (speed and MAP) to verify the engine's power output meets rated specifications. This test typically includes:

  • Power check
  • Short run-in (approximately 30 minutes)
  • One hour oil consumption test 
  • Engine installation and setup in dynamometer test cell
Engine Dynamometer Full Power Run - $511 per hour

This is a comprehensive full-load performance test across the engine's normal speed range, and typically includes:

  • Engine Dynamometer Power Check tests
  • Full throttle mixture distribution performed at fixed speed and MAP to verify proper engine operation
  • Bare carburetor/injector full-load speed sweep (for data correction purposes) 
  • Full-load performance test across the engine speed range (typically at best power fuel-air mixture setting)
Engine Dynamometer Calibration Test - $511 per hour

This is a comprehensive engine performance test across the engine’s normal operating range, and typically includes:

  • Engine Dynamometer Full Power Run tests
  • Engine performance sweeps across all operating speeds and manifold pressure points to map the engine performance for fuel consumption and power output.
Test Cell Services - $511 per hour
