Anyone got a dyno?

I've been thinking: can't we just kick the *** off all the variables in testing by using a dyno? Does anyone work for a shop or have a friend? Someone must somewhere, now wouldn't that just be awesome? I might think about shelling out the money if I think some mod is worth it or mehbe making a group pool to buy a few hours for someone to dyno test **** for all of us. I dunno, just brainstorming.

correct me if I'm wrong, but

correct me if I'm wrong, but how will a dyno really help? It measures horse power, correct?

The idea is that you hop on

The idea is that you hop on the dyno stock, then with the mod, for say 60 miles at 60 mph, then you weigh or do whatev you want to determine fuel gone.

Dyno is pointless unless you

Dyno is pointless unless you go all out. I think I'll dyno in the 120-125 range

It's not for measuring

It's not for measuring horsepower damnit, so the point isn't to go all out, the point it to control conditions like traffic and wind and road grade.

I know what you are saying.

I know what you are saying. You want perfect conditions so your tests are always accurate.

Still a lot of money to get dynoed every time to do that.

That's why I was saying to

That's why I was saying to pitch in and have someone like larry go out there and test things like wai, different fuel mixes, blah blah blah.

or just do the same test a

or just do the same test a couple of times to get rid of the errors, still cheaper than a dyno.

Well that's why I asked if

Well that's why I asked if anyone worked in a shop or knew someone! I know a few people that get free dyno time but they don't give a crap about gas mileage, so I figured mehbe someone who did might have one.
