Default Dyno Shop?

Does any of my Southern California Cruiser friends know of a good dyno shop where I can get my cruiser tuned?

Are you referring to and EFI/ECU calibration or just a standard engine 'tune up"?

If the first what ECU tool are you using? If you have not gotten one yet then using a Chassis Dyno is not the best money spent until you do have one? And if you did you should be data logging as much as you can before getting a run.
A baseline Dyno run is a very good idea so you can see improvement with other engine upgrades in the future to be able to see what actually worked and approximately by how much?
If you do this have the shop give you there Delta information so you can duplicate the set up. many do not and get questionable results with future runs.


As far as your first question goes I know a few shops but none are "PT" savoy they are just Performance shops. You need to make your own personal friends with the shop you choose if you plan on several returning runs so they can get to know you and your PT.

I recently put in a k&n cold air intake on my base cruiser and it has killed my gas mileage, I was wondering if this could be fixed by tweaking the ecu, i would prefer someone who has knowledge of doing these other than tackling it myself.

the only serious mods that would change the mileage are the cold air intake, a bigger exhaust (4 1/2 in) and bigger wheels (17s), before adding these I wouldnt get great mileage (around 18city 24highway) but since these its been down to about 14city and 20highway, so I was just curious if tweaking the ecu would make a difference or not. I was also looking at a jet performance chip, but was unsure if they work or not.

Did you actually mean to say that you installed a 4 1/2 inch exhaust?

Josh, what a co-inky-dink.

Maybe he meant his tip was 4.5 inches not his full exhaust

No pun intended

maybe your speedometer is wrong because of the larger wheels and you still get the same mileage.

looks like CA uses the same mileage killing winter blend gas they push in illinois. that costs you "a little" mpg as well

you were asking about a CA inspection a few months ago weren't you? what intake did you have before that? did that one affect the mileage? it should help, not hurt. -unless you're flooring it more. what did you do with the PCV hose? are the new rims wide and heavy?

IMO you're nuts if you want to dyno a stock NA automatic PT
