Welcome to Dyno-Plot, the home of power runs
If you've ever looked at modifying the power output of your vehicle you'll know that there are a multitude of companies offering all sorts of different packages in exchange for your hard earned cash.
Finding the correct modifications to suit your requirements and budget is never easy as there are so many options from so many tuning companies.
The idea behind Dyno-Plot is to give you access to a large collection of engine performance data, some tools to make sense of this data and allow easy comparison of the tuning kits and parts and a place to discuss the modifications. All of these should help you make an informed decision and help get the biggest bang for your buck.
Power run graphs / Dyno plots
The main thing you want to know about modifications is what they will do to your vehicle. Engine tuners and performance parts suppliers often quote just a peak horsepower and torque figure. Now while this is useful it only describes the engines output at specific points of the rev range.
A graph from a power run or a dyno plot can tell you a lot more than just a single figure because it shows you an engines output across it's entire rev range.
At Dyno-Plot we collect details of power runs from people like yourselves who've taken their vehicle to a rolling road or have had their engine on an engine dynameter. This large collection of power runs from both standard and modified engines can be viewed and easily compared to each other allowing you to easily see what difference performance modifications have made. It's even possible to compare different types of engines.
