Default Homemade Motor Dyno

I've been interested in the idea but have not given myself the time to make it.

But... I've done some research and:
Performance Trends have some software,.
Here are calculations
Here are instruction for building a Inertia dyno.
Here is article descriping how to dyno a cart engine, lots of info.

It's not exactly what you asked, but I hope this helps.

basically a buds dyno
RC50 As you come into this world, something else is also born. You begin your life, and it begins a journey towards you. It moves slowly, but it never stops. Wherever you go, whatever path you take, it will follow never faster, never slower, always coming. You will run, it will walk. You will rest, it will not. One day, you will linger in the same place too long you will sit too still, or sleep too deep. And when, too late, you rise to go, you will notice a second shadow next to yours. Your life will then be over.
