Dyno Checklist
R/T Tuning would like to make your tuning experience as pleasant as possible. We know you can’t wait to have your car running great and tuned to its maximum. To help us efficiently tune your car please look over this basic check list before your dyno appointment. Eliminating any potential problems prior to your appointment ensures that you will get the most tuning for your money! If you have any issues that cannot be resolved prior to your appointment, please let us know in advance so that we can make the appropriate arrangements to get the car dyno ready for you.
R/T Tuning Dyno Tuning Checklist
If you are experiencing any major running issues after the installation of aftermarket parts, please make us aware of that as well. These drive-ability issues may be related to something other than the need for a tune. If so, we would like to make you aware of any issues before your car is on the dyno.
R/T Tuning Dyno Tuning Checklist
Equals Success.
  • If your motor and/or clutch are new, make sure they are properly broken in prior to putting your car on the dyno.
  • Make sure you have a relatively fresh oil change, within approximately 1,000 miles
  • Check oil level. Bring an extra quart with you in case we need to top off the level.
  • If your car has over 50,000 miles replace your fuel filter.
  • Make sure you have a clean air filter. If you use an oiled air filter, make sure the filter is not over oiled.
  • Install a fresh set of spark plugs gapped to no more than .032” for boosted applications.
  • Make sure your car is not leaking any fluids. If your car leaks fluids on the dyno, you will be charged a $300 cleanup fee.
  • Pressure test your intake system prior to your appointment to eliminate vacuum leaks that may adversely affect your tuning. This includes testing all vacuum lines and intercooler pipe connections with compressed air.
  • Check vacuum/boost lines, make sure they are secure, as short as possible, and do not have any changes in diameter.
  • Tires should be in good shape, no belts showing etc. There should be no more than a 4/32” difference in tread depth between drive wheels.
  • Check tire pressures, to make sure there is no more than 2 psi difference between tires.
  • Make sure the axle, driveshaft, and carrier bearings, seals, and bushings are in a good state of repair.
  • Bring the car to your appointment with the grade of fuel that you intend to run with normally. If you intend to run race gas please bring the fuel with you. If you have recently run the car on high octane race fuel and would like a pump gas tune please run at least 2 full tanks of gas through the car prior to your tuning appointment.
Any service work performed on the vehicle to get it ready for the dyno appointment is subject to our normal labor rate of $129 per hour.
We require that vehicles that are 10 years or older be dropped off 24 hours prior to tuning appointments, no exceptions. This is to ensure that we have enough time to identify and repair any issues that older vehicles may have prior to dyno tuning.
If we are installing any parts the day of your appointment that relate to the questions below, please note them as if they are installed already. (IE if we are installing a cold air intake the day of your tuning appointment, you should list that intake on this form) If you have any questions, please call us 215-855-5565 ext. 1

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us no less then 48 hours before your dyno appointment.
