What's the point of a Dyno?

Like the subject asks, I want to know what a Dyno is good for. Does it just give you a readout of how your truck performs under certain conditions? Or does it tune it to perform a certain way under certain conditions?

To get a torque and HP curve for the vehicle. With a modified vehicle, you can then tweak it to optimize performance for various situations.

Ok so you don't take a stock truck and put it on a Dyno then? Only when you're changing something up with exhaust, intake, so on?

You could put a stock truck on a dyno as a baseline, then you can see what affect any modifications had on your torque and HP by doing another dyno run.

You can put whatever you want on a dynamometer.

Most people won't spend the money to see if they gained the 7 hp the intake claims to give. lol

Usually only race vehicles or vehicles with forced induction really use a dyno to its full potential.

But yea, you can pay the $90 or whatever dollars to figure out that your truck has lost 15 horsepower since you bought it new a couple years ago. haha
