Custom Dyno Tuning – At DaSilva Racing, we have made an investment in training courses to bring you the very best that the custom tuning world has to offer. Matt has been through the training program and is an SCT Certified Custom Tune Specialist who puts his heart and soul into getting the very best performance out of each and every vehicle that comes through our door.
Dyno Pulls – Measure your vehicle’s horsepower, torque and air/fuel on our Dynojet system. Printed dyno sheets are handed to each customer once complete. Stop wondering and know for sure!
NOTICE TO PUBLIC: Dyno tuning is NOT a quick fix for all vehicle faults and failures. This is not a cure for: faulty fuel pumps, misfires, ticks, blow by, tired motor, leaking injectors, bad wiring, poor workmanship, plugged catalytic converters, old/incorrect spark plugs or gaps, vacuum leaks, blow off valve installation and placement, mass air location, etc. These are things that will give poor results to a dyno session. We do not have access to the “Magic Wand” which fixes all these components while tuning your vehicle. PLEASE make sure your vehicle has the proper components and is running correctly prior to booking your appointment. We can certainly get your vehicle prepared, however a separate appointment will have to be made. We require clear, detailed pictures of the engine compartment to be sent in before we can book the appointment.
Additionally, we have noticed a trend in ailing components for older model vehicles. Please be aware that vehicles built in or before the 1998 model year have been delivered to us with rotting wires, bad grounds, faulty sensors and other similar glitches. We do our best to eliminate surprises and unexpected expenditures but these are issues that need to be resolved prior to putting your vehicle on the Dyno. We have also received many Tuning devices that need to be updated. Please ensure that your device is updated prior to your appointment and be advised, should we need to update your device, there will be an additional fee associated with this process.
– Dyno Tuning Information Sheet – To be completed in full prior to setting up an appointment. $50 Cancellation fee if 4 day notice is not met.

Q: Can I watch my car being tuned?
A: Yes! We encourage our customers to stay and observe the process, ask questions and get familiar with the operations and functionality of their vehicle.
Q: Can you run my car if it’s a Front Wheel Drive?
A: Yes! As long as your vehicle operates on a two-wheel drive basis, we can run it on the dyno. We can not run AWD vehicles on our Dyno. The only other vehicle we have not been able to run on our machine is the Ford Raptor due to is wide wheel base, however we are working on a solution for this.
Q: Can you tune anything other than Ford?
A: No, our software only allows us to tune Ford vehicles.
Q: How long will it take to tune my vehicle?
A: Times will vary depending on applications and upgrades, however most initial custom tunes will be a minimum of 1.5 – 2 hours.
Q: How much notice do you need to tune my car?
A: During the winter months, we can accommodate lead times of 2 weeks. During our busy season in the Summer, we generally need about 3-4 weeks advance notice for dyno tuning appointments.
Q: Can you tune Diesel Vehicles?
A: No, we keep a very clean shop and the smoke makes a big mess.
Q: I did all the mechanical work myself, can you still tune my vehicle?
A: Yes, we reserve Fridays for tuning of any vehicle that was not built by DaSilva Racing. Please note: we do not guarantee the mechanical work on any vehicle built outside our shop. We have no way of knowing what was done to the vehicle aside from what we are told. Please be sure to provide in-depth information regarding your vehicle when planning your dyno session. Dyno Tuning sessions for outside tuning are billed at $250/hr.
