Dyno Tuning Services
At Impulse Performance we offer complete chassis dyno tuning services for both street and race vehicles. We utilize the very best dynamometers from Dynapack for in-house tuning services. Rated over 1,300 horsepower, our dynamometer gives us the ultimate in control for engine mapping and development with precision RPM and load changes. Most importantly, our dynanometer provides accurate, repeatable and consistent data so that we can offer the best calibrations for our customers and their vehicles.
We offer dyno tuning services for a number of factory and aftermarket engine control systems. Whether you're looking for a simple flash calibration for your street vehicle or a complete standalone ECU solution for your race vehicle, we are here to help your vehicle run properly, efficiently and maximize power output.
All of our chassis dyno tuning services start off with an appointment. Please gather as much information as possible on your vehicle, the engine setup, all the modifications and details on your engine management setup to start the process.
Here are some things that we may need to know:
- Vehicle's year, make and model
- Engine specifications, especially if it has been rebuilt
- Injector data (if they are not the original factory injectors)
- Turbocharger/supercharger model, size, trim, etc.
- List of additional sensors (if they are not the original factory sensors)
- Any previous or current issues with the vehicle/engine
- And more...
Baseline runs are perfect for determining your car's starting point before you begin with any modifications and any additional calibration. Once you have your baseline power and torque numbers you can get an accurate measurement of the gains from additional modifications and calibration.
Pre-Dyno Tune Inspection
For some vehicles, we require a pre-dyno tune inspection to ensure that it is ready for the dyno tuning process. (No pre-dyno tune inspection is needed for dyno baseline pulls.) There is no charge for an inspection. During the inspection, we will ensure that your vehicle is safe and ready for a dyno tune. If there are any issues we find during inspection, we can address the issues before making an appointment for a tune.
Please note that although pre-dyno inspections are free of charge, any additional diagnostics, repair or related services may incur additional service charges.
Vehicles that require a pre-dyno tune inspection:
- The vehicle is over 10-years old
- The engine has non-factory forced induction (ie, turbocharged, supercharged, nitrous, etc.)
- The vehicle has a non-factory engine (ie, engine swapped)
- The vehicle is unable to be driven at street limit speeds (30mph+)
- The vehicle has a standalone ECU
A pre-dyno tune inspection is not a vehicle diagnostic session. Passing a pre-dyno inspection does not garuntee that you will not have issues while we are tuning. There may be underlying issues that we cannot determine until tuning is in progress. If you are having issues with your vehicle or you have further questions, please contact us for a proper diagnostic session.
A $100 non-refundable deposit must be paid at the time of scheduling a dyno tune appointment. Appointments may be rescheduled up to 72-hours in advance of your appointment. If you do not give us 72-hours notice or do show for your appointment you forfeit your deposit in full.
Once tuning is completed, the deposit is applied towards your total balance due for services. Deposits are valid up to 90-days and then forfeited if not used.

Vehicle Warranty and Emissions
Use or installation of performance parts and tuning may adversely affect the drivability and reliability of your vehicle, and may also affect or eliminate your insurance coverage, factory warranty and new OEM part warranty. Performance parts and services are sold as is without any warranty of any type. There is no warranty stated or implied due to the stress placed on your vehicle by performance parts and our inability to monitor its use, tuning or modification.
Vehicle testing and/or tuning on our dynamometer will push your vehicle to its mechanical limits. Making sure your vehicle is in proper working condition is your responsibility. If your vehicle is not mechanically sound, it may be necessary to pull it off the dyno to diagnose and repair problems. Any diagnostic labor needed in order to safely tune the car to maximum potential will be additional costs not included in your dyno tuning fees.
A vehicle modified by the use of performance parts and tuning may not meet the legal requirements for use on public roads. It is your responsibility to check and comply with all local, state and federal laws prior to operating vehicle on public roads.
We will not disable any emissions control or modify any Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). Our tuning services will not help you pass emissions if your vehicle is modified or has existing emissions associated problems. Dyno tuning is not a substitute for improper, missing or disabled emissions equipment.
