Sceptical about dynoing

Hey there guys, next weekend down in ennis at the world finals they are having a dyno there and I kinda would like to see what my truck puts down. I just had the head gaskets replaced for the 2nd time back in july. The first time I went with bo gaskets and with with oems this time around. All the mods are in my sig. I just don't wanna blow the head gaskets again because I dont have the cash or time to have them fixed right now. Should I go for it or not do it? I'd run erics extreme race, TSD spd, and maybe a dyno tune. What do yall think? It would be my first time to dyno it. Thanks guys.

i wouldn't be worried about it. there is no way you can possibly blow hg with arp's and ford gaskets. I just dyno'd mine for the first time 2 weeks ago.

never say there is no possible way lol... weirder stuff has happened... it also depends on how good the machine shop did at surfacing the heads and how well the op got the block mating surface cleaned

If you had the heads checked for flatness and you are using OEM gaskets this time then there is absolutely nothing to be worried about. I say go for it or else your always going to be wondering what it would have done. But I will speak from experience, if it dyno's a low number don't be too upset. See what times it does at the track and compare trap speed and dyno numbers to get a more accurate idea of what kind of power numbers your making.

The place where I had my truck worked on took the heads to a shop here in town and they checked them and the heads had no cracks in them. I've pulled 16-18k a numerous amount of times since I've had it fixed and its been running great. I can see 25-28psi on a good hill in overdrive. Im thinking I might dyno it, because like you said, I'll be wondering what it could of made.

And when do I get out of the throttle? At a certain rpm, speed, or what?

It says there is going to be one on the Texas Motorplex website. Says it starts at 10am and ends at 4. $75 for 3 pulls.
