Is there a Mopar friendly engine dyno shop near Sacramento? Really just looking for oil leaks on a fresh rebuild so I could modify my storage stand into a run stand as Plan B.

Putting an engine on a dyno and making a few pulls is going to cost you at least $1000 and probably closer to $2000 these days. That is a lot of money just to check for oil leaks.

THIS^^^^^. Find a good dyno shop and learn things. You’d be surprised what you can find with some careful testing.


Just because you think it won't make it true. Horsepower is KING. To dispute this is stupid. C. Alston

I used Vintage Hot Rod in Chico Ca. It cost me $750 for as many pulls as I wanted. Great group of guys. They do not have a website, but are on Facebook …

Thanks, I will give Vintage Hot Rod a call. Its bit far, but I see modifying my storage stand won't work. I don't have any 4 speed stuff so would have to mount a 727 on the back for the starter provisions.
I might have to modify a friend's run stand that last had a 1275cc Mini Cooper engine on it.

I guess it’s all perspective.......

Looks like Chico is about 1-1/2hrs from Sacto.

To me, that seems like a very reasonable drive to have access to a known decent test facility that’s set up to run the type of engine you need tested.
