If you have
modified your engine, you will need to have it properly set
up. This includes the fuelling, ignition advance and cam timing.
The only way to do this is on a rolling road, where the engine
can be set up at various load and speed levels. You will also
be able to see how much power your engine is making and identify
any areas for future improvement.
You may just want to know that your standard engine is making
standard power and that there are no problems to sort out.
Prepare Your Car
Rolling roads normally charge
by the hour, so being as prepared as possible will save you
money. Make sure everything on your car works properly:
1. Fill up with petrol
2. Check tyre pressures (rolling roads can wear tyres quickly,
especially if the pressures are low)
3. Check oil and coolant levels
4. Make sure the rolling road is familiar with and has the equipment
to handle your cars ECU
