I have seen postings of tuners that do a road tune after a dyno session. My question is if you had a Dynojet with eddy current load capability, would this represent more of a real world driving situation and therefore be able to perform the "road tune" on the dyno? If not, what is the purpose of the eddy current load option? Thanks, TODD

Load bearing dynos do allow you to do a much better driveability tune. However, dyno time is usually much more expensive than just driving around to fine tune driveability.

What would be the point of spending the extra 15k for the eddy current load module on a Dynojet then?
I'm not saying its not a good tool to use, but from what I seen with MY car the air flow was WAY different on the street then is was on the dyno. So i'll do all my fine tuning on the street..

Cool, I didn't know. I was just asking 'cause I assumed that for 15k add on there must be some reason to have it. Thanks.

a lot of tuners like it because its a lot easier to set in one spot and fine tune each cell.. try going 25 mph in 2nd gear for a length on time on the street.. it's way easier to do it on a dyno..then move to the next rpm and tune and so on and so on till you have it dailed in.
