Engine Code Scan

Providing of course your engine is fitted with an injection or ignition ECU we will use one of our dealer or dealer level tools to communicate with the engine ECU, obtain any error codes and access the serial live data.

Included With: Basic Checkover Full Checkover

Saftey Checks

We will check your vehicle over before loading it on the dyno. We will check things like the Tyres, Oil Level, Water Levels, check for oil leaks etc. No we aren't performing a vehicle service, but making sure the vehicle is fit for going on the rolling road

Included With: Basic Checkover Full Checkover

Inital Power Run

An inital power run will help identify the current horsepower and torque being generated by the engine. We will use this as an inital benchmark

Included With: Basic Checkover Full Checkover

5 Gas Emissions

We will use our AVL 5 Gas Analyser to obtain the emission readings for the vehicle. AVL making in our opinion the very best emission test equipment. AVL being the same make you will find in most vehicle manufacturer R&D facilities not to mention goverment test labs.

Included With: Basic Checkover Full Checkover

AFR Checks

Multipble Bosch Wideband O2 Sensors are used to determine the vehicle AFR ratio at different loads and different RPM settings

  • AFR at Idle
  • AFR at Fast Idle
  • AFR at High RPM
  • AFR underload
Included With: Basic Checkover Full Checkover

Carb Balance Check

We will check each carb to see if its inbalance with the others. We have multipble flow meters so we can check multipble ports at the same time. We also have older Crpton style units for SU carbs. Checking the carb balance is essential to ensure all carbs are balaned.

  • Balance Check at Idle
  • Balance Check at Fast Idle
Included With: Basic Checkover Full Checkover

Carb Jet/Needle Blueprinting

Carb Jet Blueprinting. We will remove the main fuel jets and or needles and document what we find. On SU carbs we will document the main needle taper size, on webers we will look at the sizing of the emulusion tubes, fuel jets, air opening etc

Included With: Charged at £15 per carb with Full package

Carb Refurbishment

Llandow Tuning and our sister company (Carburettors works) specialise in the cleaning and refurbishment of all types of carb.

  • Carb wear Check > Replace worn parts
  • Service Kit Install
  • Vapour blasting
  • Ultrasonic cleaning blasting
  • New Zinc coating on steel parts
  • Carbs will be in as close to possible as new condition
Included With: Prices from £150 per carb

MAF Test

Check the MAF sensor is reporting via the engine ECU the correct airflow at idle. Sometimes sensors drift

Included With: Basic Checkover Full Checkover

Induction Leak Check

Checking the inlet and induction system for leaks is essential in ensuring the engine doesn't run lean becuase of incorrect data being fed to the ECU or even the carbs not being able exposed to full engine vacumn

Included With: Basic Checkover Full Checkover

Fuel Pressure Check

We will install a fuel pressure guage on the low pressure side (up to 100psi) and check that the fuel pump is supply pressure. We can also check that any variable fuel pressure units are outputing what they claim.

Included With: Basic Checkover Full Checkover

Compare Fuel Pressure Data

Compare what any serial live data sensor says about pressure pressure to actual fuel pressure. Quite often the low pressure sensor isn't reporting to the ECU the fuel that is being delivered

Included With: Basic Checkover Full Checkover

Compression Test

Checking the engines condition via a compression test is essential to ensure that each cylinder is performing equally. If a cylinder is more than 15% out of tolerance there is certainly a major issue. 15% I think most people would struggle to detect by ear.

Included With: Basic Checkover Full Checkover

Spark Plug Check and Clean

An examination of a vehicles spark plugs gives a real insight to in cylinder performance. Not just the colour but the difference in colour between cylinders can help pinpoint undesierable running conditions. All plugs will be cleaned with a sand blaster

Included With: Basic Checkover Full Checkover

Boost Pressure Check

Boost pressure will be checked, the MAP sensor checker and logged during numerous dyno runs. If needed we will use a turbo system leakage tester

Included With: Basic Checkover Full Checkover

Diesel High PRessure Test

We'll check the output of the High Pressure Fuel Pump and the High Pressure Sensor Calibration against a physical gauge. If you've changed sensors to a higher pressure gauge this is an idea service to ensure your rescaled sensor map is correct

Chargable: at £180 plus with full check

Diesel Fuel Anaylisis

Our Delphi Fuel Anayliser will be used to check the condition of your engines diesel

Chargable: at £50 plus with full check

Ignition Angle Check

Using an in cylinder testing method we will check your engines ignition angle at idle. We will determine as closly as possible the actual point the ignition is fired in degrees.

  • Ignition Angle at Idle
  • Ignition Angle at Fast Idle
Included With: Basic Checkover Full Checkover

Coil Test

We will check the main coil, coils or each COP and compare peak voltage. We will be able to detect bad plugs or poor combustion on any cylinder.
