Dyno Tuning

Dyno Tuning

National Speed is a new breed of automotive performance shop with the latest dyno facilities to be your one-stop dyno shop.

Dyno tuning gives us the ability to interact with every aspect of your engine’s power development.

At National Speed Richmond and Wilmington, we offer a complete dyno tuning solution for the ultimate domestic and import performance, servicing Richmond, the Tidewater area, Northern Virginia, Wilmington, Raleigh and Jacksonville. With the ability to simulate a variety of different driving situations – including elements as diverse as road type and elevation changes – you can evaluate how your tune stands up to the type of conditions that it will encounter in the real world and extract maximum performance from your engine.

  • Complete control over all engine setup parameters, including boost control, fuel delivery, ignition timing and air flow.
  • Detailed data captured and displayed in real-time to help you determine how effective your tuning changes are in terms of improving horsepower, torque and drivability.
  • Repeatable test driving scenarios, which are a serious advantage over using street and highway testing for tuning purposes where it is virtually impossible to replicate exact conditions on a regular basis.
  • Atmospheric pressure, air temperature, ambient temperature, simulated speeds – National Speed dyno tuning includes detailed environmental controls that can help reveal areas of your tune that require improvement or adjustment.
  • National Speed’s dyno tuning also includes full video coverage of each and every tuning session for advanced troubleshooting purposes.

Professional Tuning Staff Sets National Speed Apart

As with any tool, getting the most out of a dyno tuning session depends upon the skill and experience level of the technicians operating the dyno and making the necessary adjustments to your setup. National Speed is fortunate enough to have two of the best tuners in the industry on our team, Vlad Yevtushenko and Dan Steadman. Vlad joined the National Speed team in Wilmington armed with work experience with Texas big-power speed shops, certifications from EFI University, a Bachelors in Automotive Engineering Technology from Ferris State University, and a ton of industry experience building and tuning high horsepower street performers. Dan joined the National Speed team in Richmond armed with experience running the largest Subaru speed shop in Colorado, education in aerospace and mechanical engineering, and experience & expertise with a variety of systems, including COBB Tuning (certified Pro Tuner for Subaru/Nissan/BMW/Mazda/Mitsbuishi/Porsche/VW), HP Tuners, SCT handhelds & chip, EcuFlash (open source), AEM Infinity (Factory Certified) and V1/V2, Hondata S300/KPro/FlashPro, KTuner, UpRev, A’PEXi PowerFC, Haltech, EcuTek, MegaSquirt, MoTeC, Big Stuff 3, F.A.S.T. XFI, Accel-DFI, Holley EFI systems, ESL, W.A.R. Chip, and on the list goes. 

With the specialized know-how, systems, and tools, Vlad and Dan ensure that our customer’s vehicles achieve the best performance and efficiency possible. Whether it’s a nasty all motor Chevrolet Camaro SS on HP Tuners, or a big single-turbo Toyota Supra on AEM Infinity, or a bolt-on Subaru WRX STi on COBB Tuning’s AccessPORT, Vlad’s got it under control. Channeling his expertise in making reliable horsepower (and a lot of it), Vlad built his ultimate daily driver, his 1,034whp Quicksilver 1998 Toyota Supra 6-speed. Dan’s personal weapons of choice range from a built Pro Drive ’03 WRX to a twin-ProCharged E60 M5, and his calibration experience is just as broad as his background, including 1,500whp Corvettes, 1 of 424 Subaru Impreza 22Bs, original Group-B Audi S1 Quattro on VEMS (produced in ’86), 10+ class-winning SFWD Hondas, 727cid 900whp Holden Ute in Australia, TT Lamborghini, 1,000awhp Skyline GT-R Bee-R, 800whp Euro Spec S52 swapped E30, the first Subaru in the US to run on AEM Infinity – from street focused enthusiast cars, to calibrating bespoke racing vehicles for professional motorsport teams (drift, time attack, drag), and everything in between.
