Default Motor Dyno ???

I would like to start tuning my own motors, "again, it's been a while". Can anyone point me in the right direction towards a good dyno?

CE turbo 45 and Facts Machine by Fantom are both industry standards.

Most of the top motor tuners perfer the Competition Electronics Turbo Dyno(30 amp model or 45 amp model).......It's no longer in production but you can usually find a good one for sale on here or ebay......they've been going anywhere between $600 and $1000......worth every penny

Get a CE Turbo Dyno if you can find one. They put a load on the motor and give a more accurate reading of how it will do once it's in the car. The Fantom is good as well, you just need to know what to look for on the dyno.

Unless you just gotta tinker and enjoy working the motors, I think
it's much cheaper to buy tuned motors from your favorite tuner (EA).

I bought all the tuning equipment - dyno, lathe - you name it.
For what I spent - (even used) I swear it's cheaper and faster
to buy zooted motors ready to go.

I have a brand new TurboDyno 45 with printer. I'd let it go for $1300.
