    I would like to get my car dyno tested, hasn't been done since revo upgrade, called a mechanic(lotus) friend for location of nearest place. He indicated that, as my car has a turbo, he would be concerned that there would not be sufficient air flow to keep the turbo cool, so that the test would be at best inaccurate and at worst damaging........is he right?

    Thanks

    Bollox. Damage? Maybe if you ran it for an hour. RR results are at best a guide but will never be exactly what you would get on the road.

    Your turbo uses water from the engine to cool it.

    Um, sorry for that out burst. Just cant be doing with people who give silly, misleading 'off the top of their head', make believe information. RR damaging to your car... I mean come on!

    Is the best way to ensure your car is running ok.

    Cheers,
