Dynoperformance.com is a site devoted to automotive performance and is
currently maintained by Tanner Schlientz, Thanos Pantazis and Dean Hantzis.
Its purpose is to provide a central data base of real
world performance parameters and information, not potentially
false or misleading manufacturer’s claims. Founded
in 2001 by Dean Hantzis and Thanos Pantazis, the site
has been completely re-designed and we are working with
dyno shops across the country to obtain high quality,
consistent, and accurate dyno runs offering an unprecedented
amount of information and capability. Dynoperformance
provides our visitors with real world information. All
our data comes straight off the dyno and directly into
our d-base, so there is not one person in the path to
tamper with it. After all, it’s what’s hitting
the pavement that matters.
The Data Base: Horse Power, Torque, and More…
The central feature of Dynoperformance is its unique horse
power and torque data base. This d-base is populated
by dyno results supplied by The Dyno Shop in Santee California,
Swanson Performance in Torrance California, New England
Dyno and Tuning in Worcester Massachusetts, and Main
Street Speed and Sound in Maryland. The important thing
is that these are real world numbers, not manufacturer’s
claims. We have collected them ourselves. This is what
your car actually puts down to the pavement. What also
makes this d-base unique is that it does not just list
the max horse power and torque. The entire curves are
displayed over the whole RPM range using our newly redesigned
graphs. The consistency and accuracy of the dyno runs
is critical. Since we get our data from top notch facilities
that all use the same model dyno, we are able to provide
consistent, repeatable, and reliable data that is complete
with environmental parameters and advanced information
like air/fuel ratios for the whole RPM range. The user
has complete flexibility in searching and can even compare
two runs on the same graph, either from the same car
or completely different cars. All data is presented in
the same, clear, easy to use format, so there is no converting
back and forth. To make comparisons easier, you can display
the plots in either bar or line graph formats.

Message Board Community Forum
Dynoperformance is pleased to offer registered users access
to the message board. This community forum is an ideal
place to discuss and debate dyno results, new cars on
the market, performance parts, and technical issues.
Within the forum the message board displays members'
auto profiles. If you have a question, this is the perfect
place to ask it because our members share a wealth of
knowledge and experience. Get ready for some heated debates,
because you will hear all opinions in these forums.
The Article section is designed to give visitors a more
detailed look into modifications and their impact on
dyno results. They typically revolve around dyno runs
taken before and after a modification and analyze what
that mod actually did for performance and whether that
gain (or loss) was worth the money. All articles are
carefully reviewed to include only the facts about the
dyno runs and mods. You get results, not speculation.
A new series of articles are now being released that
discuss the technical aspects of performance (e.g. relationship
between horse power and torque) and are a great reference.
Check this section frequently, because new articles appear
Dynoperformance.com: It’s Free and Fun!
Dynoperformance will tell you what your car can really
do and what to realistically expect from a particular
modification. Remember, an aftermarket supplier can claim
a particular horse power and torque increase, but will
you actually see it? That’s why Dynoperformance
is a critical resource, it’s your auto performance
watchdog. We have no affiliation with any after market
or auto manufacturer, so all information provided to
you is unbiased and accurate.
Although any visitor can search the data base and read
the articles, only members can tap the knowledge of our
community forum participants. If you have not joined already,
do it now and share your experience with what is becoming
the stop on the net for automotive performance.
