Preparing Your Vehicle for Dyno Testing: A Step-by-Step Guide by Supercharged Performance

Introduction: Optimizing Performance Testing

At Supercharged Performance, we specialize in fine-tuning your vehicle to achieve optimal performance. A key part of this process is using our state-of-the-art 1200BHP 2WD dyno. This blog post will guide you through how we prepare vehicles for dyno testing, ensuring accurate and reliable results every time.

Step 1: Driving On – FWD and RWD Considerations

The first step in dyno testing is correctly positioning the vehicle. For front-wheel-drive (FWD) vehicles, we drive straight onto the dyno to align the driving wheels with the rollers. For rear-wheel-drive (RWD) vehicles, we reverse them onto the dyno. This alignment is crucial for accurate readings and safety.

Step 2: Securing the Vehicle – Strapping Down

Once the car is in position, the next critical step is securing it. We use robust straps to fasten the vehicle tightly to the dyno. This prevents any movement that could affect the precision of our tests or compromise safety.

Step 3: Simulating Driving Conditions – Extraction and Cooling

To replicate real-world driving conditions, we employ powerful extraction and cooling fans during the dyno test. The extraction system removes exhaust gases, while the cooling fans simulate the airflow a car would experience on the road, helping to keep engine and air temperatures stable throughout the test.

Step 4: Vehicle Setup – Dyno Mode and Traction Control

Depending on the make and model of the car, we either engage a specific dyno mode or disable traction control. This setup is vital for eliminating any electronic interference that could skew the test results, allowing us to gather accurate data on the car’s performance.

Step 5: Synchronizing Engine RPM with Dyno Software

An essential part of preparing for dyno testing is synchronizing the engine RPM with the dyno software. This process ensures that the dyno accurately captures all relevant data as the vehicle is tested. Precise synchronization allows us to monitor the engine’s performance in real-time, adjusting parameters as needed to obtain the most accurate results.

Routine Day, Rare Car: Dyno Testing the Seat Ibiza Cupra R Mk2 at Supercharged

Hey folks, Josh here from Supercharged Performance. Today, I’m excited to share something pretty special – a story about the Seat Ibiza Cupra R Mk2. It’s not just any car; it’s one of only 15 left on UK roads, and it holds a special place in my heart as it reminds me of my first car, a Seat Ibiza 1.4 SE.

With only 15 left in the UK, the Seat Ibiza Cupra R Mk2 is more than a car; it’s a cherished piece of automotive history, especially among car enthusiasts and collectors.


So, we strapped this beauty onto our dyno, and guess what? It cranked out a whopping 335BHP and 350NM of torque. For a car that’s more of a legend than a daily driver, these numbers are insane! It’s like reliving my first drive, but with way more kick.


You know, working on cars isn’t just a job for me; it’s a passion. Every car that rolls into our shop has its own story, its own character. And getting to enhance that, to make these machines perform even better, is an absolute blast. It’s like bonding with each car, ensuring it delivers that consistent, exhilarating driving experience every time.


This Ibiza Cupra R Mk2 represents what I love about cars – they’re more than just machines. They’re memories on wheels, adventures waiting to happen. And this little beast? It’s a reminder of where I started and how far we’ve come at Supercharged Performance.
