Dyno Testing

Avoid costly downtime and prolonged installation by having your engine tested. Carter Power Systems has two dynamometers available for testing engines ranging from 300 to 4,000 horsepower. By testing your engine, you get the opportunity to certify fuel consumption, assure rebuild quality, confirm horsepower and output, and make adjustments during the initial break in.

Our dyno has a wide range of engine testing capabilities, such as 24-hour and continuous testing, military testing, and by the hour or by the job options. We can test many makes and models including Cat®, Cummins, Detroit, EMD, Alco, Paxman, and more.
