A New Dyno In Calgary!
It’s a great thing to be able to offer our customers something that not many other companies can – but in a city as big as Calgary, it’s difficult to be a pioneer in the market. But, with that said, it’s not impossible if you’re as dedicated as we are at Lakeview Automotive.
With all this in mind, we are excited to announce some big news for our shop, and we are proud to bring something new to our customers when they need vehicle repairs in Calgary. We will be one of the very few shops in the city to own a dynamometer!
A dynamometer – or simply just a “Dyno” – is a device that allows technicians to measure torque, horsepower, and drive power in a vehicle. While they come in many different forms and have dozens of different applications, we have done our research and thought about what would work best for us, and are proud to be the new owners of a Mustang Dyno AWD 150 SE!
Not just for the Ford cars, the Mustang Dyno AWD 150 SE is a floor-mounted, full-size traction device with independent roller systems that fit below each wheel. This allows measurements to be performed on each of the vehicle’s four wheels as they spin, separately from each other, which is important for accuracy and precision. With all four wheels engaged by the drivetrain, different conditions can be simulated in order to ensure that torque and horsepower remains consistent – both in the test, and out on the road. With this Dyno machine, we can be certain that any chassis, engine, or powertrain repairs have worked as they should, and that you will not run into any problems later on with unbalanced power. This, in turn, helps minimize odd wear patterns, unresponsive controls, and other issues that arise from the AWD not performing up to its full potential.
And the best part about us getting a new awd dynamometer? They are exceedingly rare in Calgary – there are less than five in the city, and possibly only three, including this one. And that means we can now offer our customers a fuller and more complete experience when they bring their vehicles to us, continuing our mission of delivering incredible customer service and gaining repeat business. Bringing innovation and integrity to the forefront of our operations is one of the reasons we have been around for more than 50 years, and why our customers rank us the best auto repair shop in Calgary, Alberta.
Whether you need a major repair or just general service, come visit us and our new Mustang Dyno at our shop at 425 58 Ave SE, just a few blocks away from Chinook Centre. We’ll be happy to help you get back on the road, with your car or truck in better shape than ever!
