    Re: dyno runs

    Make sure the tires are up to the challenge. I've seen what happens when an S/T/H rated tires goes on a dyno. And be careful dyno'ing a stock truck. I've seen quite a few blow the diff, or twist an axle on a dyno. The forces exerted on the components of the drivetrain are substancially different on a dyno, than on the street.

    Say what you will, just a warning. Most of the time everything's ok, but I've grown up around cars... Really fast cars... I've seen what happens when everything is NOT ok.

    lol, if a stock vehicle is going to break things, then you arent even going to be able to drive it, or it will probably break

    Re: dyno runs

    you will be fine. ive dynoed quite a few cars, as well as some in the 500hp range (no not ungodly fast but still quick). i wouldnt worry about it. you will be doing your run in 3rd gear or so anyways, and the drums will be rolling fairly quickly already, so i wouldnt worry about a **** thing as far as "extra stress" goes. if the cars are strapped to the dyno right everything will be ok.

    your car will be different so take this with a grain of salt but i dont believe in throttle body spacers. as far as throttle bodies...you cant just put them on you have to grind it down to actually let more air in. for example....

    mustang GT + k&n intake + throttle body = 1 hp gain to the wheels.....saw it with my own eyes . biggest waste of cash ive seen.
