This week we had a number of dyno tunes at our facility in Louisville, KY, including a Honda S2000 and a Honda Civic Si. The S2000 was looking to get the most out of his naturally aspirated setup, and so a Haltech Platinum Pro Plug-In standalone ecu was selected. The Honda Civic Si’s K20A3 motor had been upgraded with a Jackson Racing Supercharger kit as well as intake and exhaust. Dynosty installed an AEM Series 2 EMS in it and proceeded to dyno tune it for drivability, maximum power, and reliability.
Dynosty is proud to be a sponsor of the Lutz Performance / Kenny Kenneth Moen Nissan 350Z competing in the 2012 Formula Drift series. Late last night we identified and corrected a few problems and put a proper dyno tune in the AEM in preparation for the Seattle WA FormulaD event. The VQ35 featured a Brian Crower stroker kit combined with twin Garrett turbos, which yielded great power to 8000+rpm on E85. Best of luck to Kenny Moen and the Lutz Performance team this weekend!
Smooth sounds came from the twin-turbo inline 6 cylinder Nissan on the dyno today. HKS twin turbos fed a built RB26DETT transplanted from an R32 GTR into a Nissan 240SX. With Tomei, Greddy and Apexi parts found throughout the engine bay, power came on smooth and strong. Hal was able to dial in the AEM EMS nicely and took the car from barely-running upon arrival to 450+whp on 93octane pump gas. Looking forward to future updates from this car on the road course.

This right hand drive Supra landed at the shop unable to idle and with detonation and misfire issues from a prior tune on the AEM V2 box. Within a few hours we had the plugs gapped properly and the AEM EMS tune dialed in where it starts, idles, and makes 481whp on 93octane pump gas! Looking forward to possible E85 tune in the future to take full advantage of the Precision 6755 turbo.
