hi guys, well after using yourdyno on my dynodynamics chassis dyno with good success. i would like to use yourdyno again. got some questions on using yourdyno on my 901 superflow engine dyno with water brake. can i use my fuel flow transducers and my land & sea air turbine hats with yourdyno and if so how would i calibrate them. i have a old MS DOS Stahl headers program at the moment and i want to upgrade without spending a fortune. thanks

Hi, Can you give some details on the fuel flow transducers and air turbine hats? 

YourDyno works very well on water brakes 🙂

Sensors with signals based on frequency (like the fuel flow one) is not currently supported. However, this is possible to do with the VM167 board if someone makes a small change to the plugin. The VM167 board has a pulse counter. It is planned to be supported also though the extra digital input/outputs on the YourDyno box, but it is not currently being worked on. 

For the valve you do not need that position feedback. Just use a stepper motor with built in position feedback, or select a stepper that is large enough so it does not skip pulses.

Yes, you can run 8 EGTs. You need to buy a USB CAN adapter, for example this one: https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/usb-to-dual-channel-can-bus_1892587602.html and then you can connect to the ECU Masters 8 channel thermocouple CAN module. With the YourDyno CANTool plugin it can be read directly in YourDyno.

ok thanks for the reply, is it also possible to use 8x o2 sensors if i need to?. can it data log things like this? on a seperate page, such as recording intake manifold pressure, or oil pressure etc. during a run. or do i need some type of data logger?

Hi Boz , Perth boy ?  Great to see another aussie on the forum Just get yourself one of these

Individual Cylinder Air/Fuel Ratio Tuning on Engines up to 12 Cylinders

https://www.innovatemotorsports.com/products/st12.php

Ideal for a engine dyno room logging information  and a VM167 board like the admin suggested.
