Desktop Dyno 6

I am thinking of picking up DynoSim6 from Pro Racing Sim. I am wanting to play a bit with some parts for the TCoupe and figured it would be a good package to experiment with on The 351W. I looked at engine analyzer pro but that is a monumental budget buster. If I were doing engines for racing or whatever I think it would be a good investment. Investment is not what I am looking at just something I can bounce ideas off of and see how combinations work or not work together.

If ya have any experience with this companies software let me know what you think of it.. Thanks

I used an older version many years ago. Here's what I'll say about it. The numbers were off quite a bit from actual, but the power curves were very close. If at all possible, get the most advanced program. With the right input and information, it actually gets very close. I'd consider something like that to be an investment and would save up the extra cash to get it......

All in all it's a fun program that easily lets you try different things to see how they would work, but just remember it's not an end all be all......

They had a deal on their website last year for the engine/drag/road race dynos for like a $100. These were version 5 but while I understand getting the latest - the thing is if you can get the program in-line with what you are actually seeing real world, then changes made in the program might have a closer chance of reflecting reality.

I got my disk but it would not run till registered. I went through the process and it refused to complete the install. I got hold of the company and they told me how to fix the problem and it was as simple as entering the letter R when the registration failure came up.

So I got it installed and have played with it a bit and it is a neet program. I read on their site people had complained it was off in accuracy so according to them they made some big changes and the accuracy has improved. I put a 351W stock in and it was real close to the real numbers. It is a little complicated at first as it has a million variables you can adjust and change. I am continuing to work with it and am becoming more comfortable and it is a blast to play with. Once I get comfortable with it I think it will be a good program for building my 351W with out first spending a lot of money. So far I would recommend it. I may change my mind after a while but until then I will keep learning about it. Thanks for the input guys..
