Yesterday i joined Dan Turner & colleague, Lamont at Advanced Motorsport for the dyno runs on our Suzuki Swift Sport.
As the engine has only just been built and not really tested, this was the perfect opportunity to get the motor ran in, and keep an eye out for any teething issues.
The full process of “engine run in” was completed smoothly, after a minor modification was made to the rocker cover. Engine run in consisted of different RPM’s for short periods of time, based over a 500 mile journey.
The Dynapack direct couples to the wheel hubs and applies a precisely controlled hydraulic load. This method of direct coupling plus its built-in strength means the Dynapack is always in control of the vehicle. Very impressive stuff!
After the running in process was completed, a short 10 minute coffee break was required – while we had the break, the engine was left running, ready for its power runs.
Here’s a YouTube link to the third gear power runs. She sounds glorious!
Power is not what we’d hoped for, but it is early days, and there is still more fettling to do with the car, so we will get the car back on the dyno at a later date for some more power runs. Hoping for bigger figures next time!
