If what you are saying is semi correct,then the chassis dyno is the best place for the car to come unglued
dont have to worry about pole vaulting a driveshaft
$500.00 is a very cheap ball park tune,especially where knock might be present.
getting exact a/f readings under power. This also gives you the ability to choose an A/F ratio to start with and then road test with a real number to start with.
street tune and race tune can both be tested on the same day.write down the results in a jounal,now knowing what a jet/air bleed chainge will do for your engine

If you build a very mild street engine then all this information will be moot
