Dyno Service in Metro Phoenix

For anyone in the Phoenix area who needs to dyno his/her car, this is the place to go. They have the best Mustang Dyno in the state, and i got my 2000 323i (5-speed manual) reflashed at this place, car is pushing 181WHP (wheel horse power). The flash is pricey, but it included dyno time and tuning time, and i'm pleased with the results.

For some reason, I'm doubting they have a flash for 04+ BMWs.. do you know what brand software they're using? or is it their own tuning?

most of the AZ guys prefer to have our dynos done at Dynocomp.. actually.. we almost always have our dyno days there.. good fun..


also... check out


that's where must of us hang out.. bi-monthly meets..

you can also go to www.azeuro.org which will have links to the audi and vw groups in AZ as well..

Tuning in AZ

Yeah, i know Dynocomp, but most of the Mitsubitshi Evo guys i hang out with go to Mynes Performance b/c the tuner does Custom tunes to each individual car. Before i took my car to Mynes, i tried the Shark Injector and got only more 2 HP If i read the EvoTech tunes correctly, those are also generic maps (I'm only speculating based on what i see on the dynocomp site). I went to Mynes b/c they are the tuner for the Mini-USA race team, and that's what convinced me to go give them a try (even though i know that they are the go-to shop for the Evos). Mynes also has a BMW diagnostic tool that can run full scans on your ecu and turn off many error codes on the fly.

I had a passenger airbag light that had been on for over a year (passenger sensor went bad). The dealer can't turn it off b/c it's a hard fault. When i had the flash done, Jason at Mynes did a full scan on my ecu, turned off the airbag light (thank goodness) and it's been off ever since. I didn't want to change that sensor b/c the part was $150 but the labor to install was $300+; with that sensor being bad, the passenger airbag will go off in an accident regardless of whether or not there's someone sitting there - to me, that's not a bad thing If i was in an accident, i want all the airbags to go off so i get all the cushion

This is the system that they use:

I'll check out AZBMW.org and see what's there
