Talk to some local colleges. I know most of them have the machines, and some will let you do a test (for a fee). Other than that, look up high performance shops.

If you know anyone that graded from Kwantlen Community College (mechanics course), they can get it done for free.

Are you looking for information on who can burn a chip or who can do a dyno test?

If its engine only you can take it to First Class Automotive in Abbotsford.

Valley Fuel Injection in Abbotsford has a chassis dyno.



Dyno testing is Really Freakin Expensive. Actually Chassis dyno testing is not that bad but to do just the engine its really expensive due to the setup time to hook your engine to the dyno, engine mounts, flywheel adapters etc.

But trust me, you dont want to experience your engine screaming on a dyno at peak horsepower, you have no idea how horrible of a feeling it is to hear the engine scream as every last horsepower is squeezed out of it, you'll cringe expecting critical components to come flying out at any second, you'll swear you've suffered permanent engine damage.

I run into so many people that claim "yeah I had this engine dyno'd and its makin over 500 ponies" I guarantee you most of them are lying, they never put their engine on a dyno, cause after you run your engine up on a dyno you get this uneasy feeling that its been hurt and an overwhelming desire to tear the engine down and rebuild it.

I have that feeling everytime a tool from Aircare gets in my truck.


You mean every small block chev from Surrey and Abbotsford does not have 500 HP minimum?:rolleyes:

The GM TBI systems shouldn't need a chip to match your engine.... just get the injectors from an engine that has similar displacement. (like a 4.3 v6 for example)
in fact the entire system from a 4.3 would be a close match (seeing as how the 2F is a 4.2L)

Oh of course every primered fullsize chevy on bald 36" tires with a cracked frame driven by a bald headed guy with way too big pants and a cellphone stuck to his ear has 500 hp, cause after all he must've spent all his money on the engine and dyno testing since the rest of his truck is completely unsafe at any speed.

I thought that would be ok too. But most people that have done this swap need a custom chip:(
