Proper rolling road / dyno tune


Is there any company in the U.K. that does proper, old school USA style rolling road/dyno tuning on classic cars? I'm talking about a service where they spend a few hours doing runs and rejetting, adjusting carburation, ignition timing, distributor re-curving etc.etc. and you leave with a car that is more powerfull and sweeter running than when you went in.

John Sleath at Doncaster has both engine dyno and rolling road - he build my engine and dyno'd it and has build/dyno'd some serious cars.

I do that on classic American carb'd v8 cars for a bottle of my favourite scotch. I don't have a rolling road. I just need to take the car out for a straight run up and down a few times.

I understand there is a place in Newcastle (where i live) now that has a modern, quality rolling road. But only for modern computer controlled cars. And it isn't cheap.

Re: Proper rolling road / dyno tune


Thanks for the replies men.

Geordie, much as I'd like to meet up with you and take advantage of your knowledge and experience for a bottle of decent whiskey it would be a 500 mile round trip for me so a no-go Sad

Just checked out the John Sleath website and he looks like he could definately do what I'm looking for.

Thanks again
