Dyno Conversation

Ok I have been talking to a local shop with a dyno. I been trying to find out what the cost is. They want 150 bucks for one hour and tell me it usually takes 1.5-2 hours to run a diesel on a dyno.

Then I get this in a response to one of my emails. I guess 6.0L are the only diesels ford makes. Can you say I am going to talk to other shops.


We don't typically "max out" 6L's because of the cylinder head gaskets,
bolts, and piston issues. We've never seen 140 hp out of a 6L - if you
want to try it, we can, but you're liable for all or any damages - not
us!


Uh I guess a 6.0L can not make 140hp even stock. If it does it may cause damage to the engine.

The real funny thing is I have a 2002 7.3L and I made that clear in my first email to this shop.

Think they know something. They are the owners of the shop with the dyno. I think I better find a different shop to go to. Heck 300 bucks just to put my truck on the dyno your crazy.

I got another reply back saying well we can schedule you on the dyno the week of Aug. 19th, or Sept. 9th.

My reply back was at 150 bucks an hour and your saying it takes 2 hours so for 300 dollars to run my truck. I will check with other shops around thank you.

I mean come one they think they are the only ones by me with a dyno. I guess they need to look in the yellow pages. I will check with other shops near my house. I am also trying to set up a dyno day at the shop I go to. But not if they are going to charge 300 bucks and take 2 hours to run a truck.

See I could do that. Put the chip on stock see what I get. Put it on extreme and see what the maxed hp and torq I have.

Stump I don't get it either I thought the 6.0L had more hp stock then what they are thinking.

I can understand not running a 6.0L maxed out on a SCT because of the possibillity of head bolts and gaskets going.

Maybe they need a diesel guy come work part time for them.

That's crazy!! It takes like 10 minutes from them strapping it down to undoing the straps to make 3 pulls on a dyno. I could see if you had a programmer it might take a while to load different tunes but with a flip chip it's over in no time!

But wait Mr. John they can't figure out even after I told them 3 times now that I have a 2002 7.3L. They still keep asking me questions about my 6.0L

I told them I do not own a 6.0L I own a 7.3L. I got a response back, "so which one are you wanting to run the 6L or 7.3L"

I am like don't worry about it. If your not listening to what I am saying or if your not reading the info I am giving you fully. I am not going to run my truck on your dyno. Unless you let me operate your dyno.

I think Rodslinger needs to come to Michigan. Prove to these people that Hp is made out of the 6.0L or even onefastgranny.

These people still are asking me when I am able to bring my 6L to run on there dyno. Can I borrow someones truck with a 6L in it please. Cause I don't have one.
