Big Fish Tuning has a brand new state of the art Dyno Developments 2WD rolling road installed in a dedicated area of our 3500sqFT workshops.
Dyno Developments is a new state-of-the-art rolling road, developed by Mike Gurney who is well respected in the dyno industry having previously sold and worked with the Dyno Dynamics systems. Mike installed the majority of all Dyno Dynamics machines in the UK today up until 2011. The DD Precision dyno is known for the abilty to run small and large Horsepower vehicles on the same equipment, the Dynamometer control systems use new technology are the fastest and most stable in the Industry, with very fine load control and update speeds of 50,000 times a second.
The DD Precision 2WD as being installed at Big Fish Tuning offers the following:
1. Can run very low power up to 1200 Horsepower at the wheels
2. Able to test Cars, Trucks, RV, Go Karts, Quad Bikes and Motorcycles
3. Measure HP, Torque, Tractive effort, RPM etc.
4. Measure AFR/Lambda
5. Automatic weather station Air Temperature Correction
6. Measure vacuum/boost levels
7. Thermocouple/EGT channels
8. Built in Knock detection
9. Measure RPM direct from engine/Roller speed
10. Ramp Mode for Power Graphing
11. Steady State mode for fine engine tuning
We can provide a power run before remapping, and after to show you the true gains achieved from your remap. In addition we monitor and log a wide variety of engine parameters to ensure your engine is in peak health. By using dealer-level diagnostic tools we can check a variety of outputs from the engine, in addition to using the latest in knock detection and wideband lambda systems.

Some of our previous work on our old Dyno:
We remapped this 11 plate Astra 1.9 CDTi 150bhp using the benefit of the Sport button installed in the car. The car produced 151bhp as standard and 234lb-s of torque on our rolling road. After remapping this was proven to output 208bhp and 320lb-s torque on the Sport Button. The benefit of the Sport button is we can essential have a lower powered tune with the Sport button off, and a higher powered map with the Sport button on.
The Zafira was brought to us with a blocked DPF (Diesel particle filter) and we had a full custom exhaust fitted to the car. Big Fish Tuning removed the DPF from the software, removing engine lights and stopping any regeneration cycles. The car was then put on the rollers for a standard run. Upon pushing the car as it was remapped the airflow meter was starting to read low at higher rpm. The airflow meter was replaced and the car checked and tuned to the optimum level. The customer requested we keep the torque limited at approximately 300lb-s due to the cars mileage of 125k.
This VW Beetle with the 150bhp 1.8T engine was brought to us for a remap, having had a rolling road result elsewhere of 180bhp with a decat exhaust and front mount intercooler. The customer had known the car from 6 months old and assumed the car was standard, and the improved breathing and exhaust modifications contributed to this. When we are unable to read the standard file from the ECU, it was removed and it was found to of been physically chipped.
Big Fish Tuning removed the chip from the ECU and restored it back to OEM standard by soldering a new AMD 29F800 chip back in. This now allowed us to flash the ECU with our custom remaps. The car was placed on the rollers and produced 157bhp as standard. As we started to remap the ECU, the car struggled to hold boost at the mid to high rpm ranges under full throttle. Looking at the diagnostics and logging information we were able to determine the boost solenoid valve was faulty.
