How much can I expect to spend for chassis dyno time? I'm only looking to do a few pulls for the time being, probably just quick adjustments in between rounds, no major changes

Anything over $5 an hour is too much in my book!

I'll be next in line.
$5 wow the cheapest I've seen around here is $75 per hour.

Or are you saying thats how much you value them.

I've never used a Dyno myself. I'm not saying they aren't useful. It's just been too easy to go to the track for a little test N tune. I have a friend who breaks all his motors (SBC)in on a stand. It is a REALLY nice set-up. He tunes it, sets rocker arms,timing, breaks in springs and cams. Wonderful thing, I like it. He asked me why I don't have one. I pointed to my car and said I do have one.

Todd, I have a link that i'll have to find and it's basically a database of dyno shops around the world. Searchable by location.

I'll look it up and let you know.

Found it

Good luck.

I'm also not sure how up to date that database is. But I would also do a search on yahoo yellow pages on "dyno". You might get a lot of stuff to weed through, but it might be worth it.
