 Engine Dyno & Jet boat engine Tuning Facilities

 Our engine dyno facilities cater for engine development work along with jet boat engine tuning. Many modern engines used in jet boats today incorperate advanced features such as continuously variable valve timing & turbo charging which simply can not be optimised by tuning the boat on the water. The only way to optimise & fully tune these features (& in fact ignition timing for that mater) is to ustilise a dyno where gains & losses at each operating point can be measured.

Our engine dyno's frame is made to suit the common jet boat mounting bearer widths & utilises the comon Spicer drive shaft which means that what ever engine fits in a boat it will fit in our engine dyno - eg Nissan VQ35, LS V8, Toyota Lexus 1UZ etc. We also have drive couplings taylor made to suit Mazda rotary engines (13B, 20B, 26B) which we have used for development work with customer engines.
