How can you ensure that the changes you make to your car’s components and elsewhere are having the impact you want them to have? Just like anything else, you make sure that you measure the results you’re getting. The best way to do that is to let Excelerate Performance adjust your tune and put your car on the dynamometer.
What’s a Dynomometer?
If you’ve never heard of it before, a dynamometer can sound pretty intimidating. What it does is test and evaluate your car’s performance after making changes to either components or the engine tuning. The dynamometer simulates specific situations and returns results that help experienced technicians to be able to accurately let you know how your car’s engine and other components are performing. The dynamometer results can also help with dialing in a specific tune.
Tuning in Branford, CT
So, what’s tuning all about then? Engine tuning involves changing settings within the ECU, or Engine Control Unit, of your car. You can think of it as your car’s brain. Every car has a basic tune setting, but it might not give your car the best performance or the one you really want. By going in and adjusting those settings, experienced technicians are able to dial in specific settings like fuel to air ratios or other adjustments that make your car’s performance that much more impressive. You might even want to try different tunes for different situations, depending on your car’s performance needs.
Getting the Best Performance from Your Car
Ultimately getting the best performance from your car involves a lot of different variables. It starts with the right components, with maintenance, and with making mechanical adjustments wherever possible. But you have to follow up with dynamometer testing and tuning to confirm that you’re getting what you’re supposed to get out of your car and your components. It’s vital to understand what changes need to be made next and how those changes affect your car’s overall performance so you can get the results you want to get.
