 Dynojet 224xLC Dyno Testing

Our in-house Dynojet 224xLC dyno is the perfect tool to benchmark your BMW. Based on the 224x dyno, the 224xLC offers the simplicity and ease of use of an “inertia only dyno”, along with advanced testing capabilities of a Eddy Current load style dyno. Perform A-to-B comparison tests to quantify gains from various performance products, or enable the load control feature to perform step, sweep, or road load simulations, being much more effecting than "street tuning".

When performing loaded testing, the Eddy Current Load Absorption Unit option utilizes an integrated Torque Cell to quantify power absorption in an ultra precise and consistent manner. The eddy current unit attaches to the roller drum by way of a splined shaft, for the utmost in reliability, consistency and repeatability.

After a dyno session, we will provide you with highly detailed feedback and information about your car's performance. Accurate readings such as horsepower, torque, boost pressure, exhaust temperature, air/fuel ratio and more will allow you to see your cars improved performance when your new modifications are installed.

Model 224xLC Specifications:
- Maximum Horsepower: 2000 HP
- Maximum Speed: 200 MPH
- Maximum Torque: 2000 ft/lbs
- Eddy Current Load Absorption Unit, Torque Cell, and dynamic load control software.
- Capable of performing loaded tests, including step, sweep, and wind drag simulation.

The Dynojet 224xLC can perform load tests including step, sweep and loaded roll-on.

Atmospheric Sensing Module
The Atmospheric Sensing Module measures absolute pressure, air temperature, and relative humidity. These measurements are used by the WinPEP dynamometer software to correct power and torque measurements to standard atmospheric conditions according to an SAE, Standard, DIN, JIS, or EEC formula.

WideBand Air/Fuel Ratio System
Tuning with a Dynojet dynamometer has never been easier! With the addition of our WideBand Air/Fuel Ratio System, every dyno run can show you horsepower and torque, and the exact air/
fuel ratio. This system is one of the most insightful tuning tools available today! You can easily identify lean or rich trends from idle to redline. Whether tuning a naturally aspirated “all motor” car, or a forced induction screamer, you will know the tune is right.

Eddy Current Load Absorption Unit
When performing loaded testing, the Eddy Current Load Absorption Unit option utilizes an integrated Torque Cell to quantify power absorption in an ultra precise and consistent manner. Loaded test files are then available for review and analysis in the Dynojet software. During a steady state test the dynamometer operator can view torque in “real time”, a great feature when performing live ECM tuning. Additional highlights of this system include a quick and effective calibration routine that can be accomplished in under a minute.

4 Channel Analog Module
The analog module allows (4) additional 0-5v based sensors to be logged during dyno runs. This allows you to display data such as boost and fuel pressure, along side the HP / TRQ channels. Dynojet has a built in sensor calibration routine that makes the set up simple. You can choose from various supported sensors, or input the data from any 0-5v sensor on the market.

Thermocouple Amp
Enhancing the capabilities of the Analog module, the new Dynojet Thermocouple Amp Module is able to convert any Type K Thermocouple into a 0-5v based analog signal and has a range of 0-2000 degree F version.

OBDII Datalink Module
This new device, (DJ-DLM) provides real time data from the OBDII port on all 1996 and newer vehicles. This data is available to be viewed live in the dynamometer software, and is also recorded into the dyno run. Imagine being able to review OBDII data, such as spark advance, throttle position, engine coolant temperatures, inlet air temperature, calculated load, and numerous other parameters right along side your dyno results. In order to see the full spectrum when it comes to tuning a vehicle, your results are only as good as your data. The data from a Dynojet dyno is the baseline against which all other results must be measured. Powertrain management systems in modern vehicles are very complex and can make it difficult to attain repeatable results. Luckily, thanks to another industry first innovation, Dynojet has a solution to give you confidence in your test results. The Dynojet Datalink Module (DJ-DLM) for OBDII applications will allow you to monitor and record critical channels from a test vehicle at speeds up to 200 times per second. This isn’t just a typical OBDII datalogger, but rather a device that covers all 1996+ vehicles and protocols with unparalleled speed.

Alignment & Corner Balancing

It is a fact that most vehicles on the roads today have incorrectly setup wheel alignment or are not aligned at all after suspension and/or wheel & tire changes. When upgrading and lowering the suspension on your car, it is highly recommended that you get the suspension geometry setup correctly - not only to ensure the suspension works properly but also for your safety. Incorrectly setup suspension can be detrimental to the car's handling and become dangerous especially in poor road conditions.

Services Provided
- Camber, Caster and Toe for each front wheel
- Camber/Toe for each rear wheel
- Performance Alignment for dedicated weekend warrior or dedicated track setups
- Corner Balancing
- Headlight realignment (for those with lowered setups)

This can help solve problems with:
- Steering - car pulls to one side, poor tracking
- Suspension - damaged or worn
- Inconsistent handling
- Premature tire wear

If you would like further information or would like to schedule your alignment/corner balancing service, please call us at 866.669.0705.

E46 Rear Subframe Reinforcement

One of the common problems that arises in the E46 3-Series & M3 is the weakening or cracking of the rear subframe mounting points in the sheet metal chassis. Over time the loading and unloading of the rear subframe will cause the sheet metal to fail, negatively affecting the handling and power delivery.

By welding a set of steel reinforcement plates onto the chassis the subframe load is distributed over a stronger and larger surface area, thus preventing future failure. This is strongly recommended as a preventative maintenance item for all E46 cars.

Our full subframe reinforcement service involves dissembling the rear subframe, suspension and drive-train components, and prepping, welding and painting reinforcement plates onto the chassis.

Note: This service requires that your car is present at our facility for 3 days. A necessary subframe inspection must be performed to determine it's condition prior to service. Please call us ahead of time to schedule your appointment. Damage repair is an additional cost.
