    Well the pros would be that you could work with more cars.

    The downside would be how those numbers look with rear wheel drive cars.

    Everyone feels the dyno dynamics is one of the best in the world although comparing numbers from this dyno to other dynos is problematic.

    The MAHA I don't have much experience with but is very popular overseas.

    The Mustang I really like as well.

    You would be good with any of these. A dyno is a HUGE investment so you should definitely get feedback from as many people here as you can. Maybe speak to @BrenM3 as well.

    I use all these machines on a regular basis.

    Dynojet:

    Pros: Numbers - price - support

    Cons: Non load bearing - can suck for tuning or steady state. Mostly for power pulls. The loaded (load bearing) new dynojets are kind of inconsistent. And considering their lack of options they are EXPENSIVE for what they are (75+ awd)

    Mustang: (MY CHOICE MD-500-AWD)

    Pros: The best, the cheapest (55k+ AWD), GREAT US support, the most popularly used dyno, no maintenance, dyno database software. Linked rollers means traction control, M3/M5/M6/GTR cars can be done no problem. Same with bikes/atv/dualie trucks all on the SAME rollers.

    Cons: No adjustable bed length depending on the size of the car you are either on top or in the rollers (After using a dyno dynamics, i prefer being in the roller better), lower numbers, software is kind of confusing to use and hard to read from a tuners standpoint.

    Dyno Dynamics:

    Pros: Adjustable bed length to suit vehicle, world class software and steady state tuning. Linked rollers extra cost $$$$ (Cant do GTR or traction controlled system without this upgrade), amazing steady state load tuning, along with full driving simulation and use of every gear

    Cons: Overseas support, the most expensive (130k+), and seems to break often from my experience, low numbers.

    Dynapack:

    Pros: Takes up no space, literally moved around in minutes. EXTREMELY consistent as no wheels or straps. NO BS. Easy drum non maintenance setup, store anywhere. Easy setup for 2WD. Amazing steady state.

    Cons: Pain in the ass to setup 4WD, overseas support, floor needs to be perfectly flat or AWD cars rattle. Expensive $100k +, can only do one gear at a time under load.

    Exactly what i was looking for, well written!

    Now i need to think hehe, but a full option MUSTANG seems also tempting.

    Anyone here with MAHA experience?

    Unfortunately, no, as it seems to be mostly an overseas dyno.

    The shop I'm at ordered a DYNOCOM dyno, this is a name I haven't really heard of until they ordered it, we just started breaking ground at the shop since the dyno should be here very shortly

    Will try and provide some info as soon as possible with some numbers as well
