MD-500 Series

12.625" Rolls, 190-mph, 1,500-hp, 2WD Upgradeable to AWD-500

MD-500 - Perfect if you plan to upgrade to an AWD dyne

For those shops that wish to ease into the dynamometer performance tuning market one step at a time, Mustang offers a perfect solution. The MD-500 dyno. An excellent 2WD performance dyno in and of itself, the MD-500 is simply one-half of the MD-AWD-500 system. The MD-500’s multiple upgrade paths allow it to accept Mustang’s AWD upgrade in the future and also enable it to accept a second eddy current PAU for increased loading capability should you ever feel the need to expand your testing capabilities.

The MD-500 is also a low inertia dynamometer, which means it has enhanced sensitivity to minor and rapid changes in torque and power being applied by your cars – making it ideal for precision steady state tuning.

With 1,500-hp measurement capacity, the MD-500 can handle high performance front wheel and rear wheel drive vehicles. If your shop caters to the motorcycle market too, the MD-500 series can be purchased with the optional motorcycle adaptor kit.

Mustang’s PowerDyne PC Software is Windows based, and offers the user the ability to test and tune vehicles using the industry’s most expansive software program. In addition to steady state tuning, PowerDyne allows the user to perform Power Pulls, Drive-cycle Emulation, 1/4 and 1/8 mile Sprint Tests, Emulated Emissions Tests, and General Road-Testing. A full graphing and report utility is available to the user for post-analysis of individual runs.
