Chassis Dynamometers

MD-IMP Series

42" Rolls, 225-mph, 2,750-hp, 1,200-hp Peak Absorption

MD-IMP - The perfect machine for testing powerful lightweight imports

In anticipation of the growth in the sport compact segment, Mustang engineered the first and only low inertia, large roll dynamometer designed to handle the highest horsepower sport compact cars on the planet.

The IMP Series is capable of measuring up to 2,750-hp in power sweep mode and for tuning purposes, the SE model provides 600-hp absorption capabilities. With low inertia rolls, the MD-IMP Series is designed for testing lightweight vehicles that make big horsepower numbers. The key behind the IMP Series is its ability to accurately simulate road-load on vehicle-driver combinations weighing as little as 1,600 lbs via its modest inertia properties and Mustang’s patented Virtual Inertia™ Technology. Professionals specializing in import market niches can take advantage of all of the benefits of an advanced eddy current chassis dynamometer; 1/4 mile runs and 0-60 runs, both from a standstill, can be performed on the SE model with precise accuracy – regardless of how much weight you’ve managed to shave off the stock set-up or how much power you have added to the engine.
