Post Dyno Simulation Programs

I am interested in purchasing a engine dyno simulation program and am wondering which one would be best. I am interested in building street engines in the 300 to 600 HP range. I have seen a lot of post with people using DeskTop Dyno, some Virtual Engine 2000, and some others. I have checked out the web site of Engine Analyzer from Performance Trends, and it looks pretty cool. Any advise on which one is the most accurate and which has the best features would be much appriciated. Thank you for your help.

I have desk top dyno 2000 and I like it. I havent used any others but it claims to be accurate to 5% of accual dyno readings. It has tons of options to customize engines and can do all engines you would need to do. good luck.

I would say that the best one out there is the performance trends engine analyzer pro, but it costs 450 bucks, I wouls say to get the plus version it pretymuch covers what i thing you would need.

I Downloaded a copy of Dyno2000 and it is a neat little program but i found it to basic in its inputs.. btw. check your e-mail

Desktop Dyno is an excellent starter program and will give fairly good results, considering the fact that all input information is very basic. For a real professional computer simulation program, go with the Performance Trends or Lockheed programs. Be prepared to spend a few hundred bucks, but they are well worth the money.
