    Yes, they can, and yes, many do this very thing. Some engine assemblers that don't have their own dyno will purposely use a dyno facility that will "fudge" the numbers. This is more common place then most racers realize. My dyno guy took our best pull, and then showed me the way to do this. It's quite interesting.

    bring us the #'s we will tell you if they are close or not ..

    I've dyno'd a few motors, one was on a happy dyno the other not so happy. Both made same HP .. one is a full 2 tenths faster then other.

    ALWAYS ask what the correctiuon factor is! I was dynoing my RR car befor & after every race, All @ the same dyno. well one day it was reading some great post race numbers, then the guy remebered he was dynoing some car club & jacked up the correction factor so they wouldnt bitch!

    The one Big thing that has been missed here is the real purpose of a dyno and why it was created. Its purpose was to fine tune a motor NOT to find max HP and TQ...This day and time i understand this is why many people dyno motors but it was not the intended purpose of its design.



    the HP and TQ readings are the reported Numbers where the engine is tuned at its maximum (optimal) performance.....its normally not the highest HP and TQ the engine could make

    a perfect example of what i am saying here is that you can lean the $hit out of an engine and literally burn it down on the dyno and its gonna make more HP and TQ on the Dyno right before it becomes a 500lb ash tray.. .

    so with that said you want to find MAX HP and TQ readings or have a properly tuned dynoed engine ? :roll:



    My 2 cents..
