My SRT4 is the first performance car I've owned so my knowledge base is slim in this area. Can you describe / explain the procedure for me. Please. Cynthia

The type of dyno that was used was an in ground chassis dyno(2 or 4 wheel)this was a 2 wheel dyno.There are 2 giant rollers sticking out of the ground and you drive your car on to it with the drive wheels resting on top of the rollers you strap the car down so it will not move usually straps holding the front and rear with wheel blocks.Then you start the car and start going through the gears getting the rollers spinning i used 3rd gear for my run.I was in thrird gear and held it a 2000rpm and the technician said he was ready i put her to the floor and reved all the way to 6000rpm then let off the gas and put in the clutch and let the wheels coast to a stop.What you are doing is having the rollers measure how much force you are putting to the ground I.E HP/TQ there is a computer hooked up to the rollers and it measures all the info and calculates the numbers i did it 3 times to get a good baseline for my car.The numbers i got represent how much HP and TQ i am putting out at the wheels.Dodge rates the car at 230HP and 250TQ so i am happy with my runs because i am not losing very much power through the gearbox. I hope i was able to explain it ok,even though i was a bit longwinded :lol:

Good description of procedure...is it diagnostic? Something I might want to do before my warrantee is up?, make sure I'm getting the power I should be getting? Or is there a different purpose? C.

I used it to get baseline figures before i did any mods to my car and then when i install the mods i will put it back on the dyno and see what kind of gains i achieved with the new parts.I wouldnt call it a diagnostic it just measures the performance you are able to put to the ground. They have a air/fuel measuring device that is in the exhaust and a sensor that picks up engine rpm and links it all to a computer with a special program to get all your performance numbers.Check out tourquefreaks.com it has a picture and a description of their operation,good bunch of people.
