engine (NOT chassis) dyno shop rec in Texas

Guys,

I'm looking to have my freshly rebuilt 350/350hp from my 69 vette engine dyno'd prior to install. Looking for a rec on an engine dyno shop in the central TX area (San Antonio, Austin preferred but can go to Houston or Dallas.

Also, what is the name of the device the dyno shop can put on the oiling system to make inspection for metal easier during the break-in period?

Thanks for any help you can give.

Mike

the dyno I use replaces a conventional oil filter with a spin on adapter that goes to an Oberg-style filter and then to an water to oil cooler that maintains constant oil temps during a dyno session. The Oberg is one of a few different filters devices that can be disassembled to clean and check for any debris.

Kim Barr Racing Engines in Garland Texas has a 1500 HP Super Flo Dynometer and they do engine machine work and assembly. I have used Kim Barr for my engine machine work since 1970. I assemble my own engines at home so I have never had a engine on their dyno. Last time I discussed it with them, Kim Barr wanted $350 to dyno a engine.

However, Garland Texas is about 300 miles from San Antonio, Texas. That is a long way to haul a engine just or dyno work. I am sure you could find a shop in San Antonio that has a engine Dynometer.

I spoke to my associate who had his 454 Chevrolet engine rebuilt and dynoed at Janke Engines in San Antonio.

Jerry Janke has been in the business for about 40 years. He had a stroke a few years ago and his automobile engine preparation has went down hill. However, he still does good engine dyno evaluation.
