Dyno runs, or dynamometer tests, are used to measure the power output of an engine. By placing a vehicle on a dynamometer and running it at different speeds and loads, engineers and mechanics can measure horsepower and torque output and evaluate the engine’s performance.
It’s not only a way to measure the power output but also can be used to check the engine’s health and performance, and also to make adjustments or tuning on the engine to improve the power output. Dyno runs are widely used by car enthusiasts, racers and mechanics to fine tune their engines and get the most out of them.
