High Performance Systems Lab


High Performance Systems Lab imageThe primary function of the High Performance Systems Lab is to provide a clean workspace for the measurement of sensitive engine and suspension components. The key components of the lab are three SuperFlow flowbenches, two of which are computer controlled. Various sizes of engine components can be evaluated using this equipment, from single cylinder Kart engines to Pro Stock cylinder heads.

In addition, a Roehirg computer-controlled shock dynamometer that is the same one used by the NASCAR and Champ Car teams allows students to measure the characteristics of shock absorbers to predict their in-use performance. Finally, the lab includes various engine measurement and blueprinting tools, camshaft analysis equipment, and a fuel injector flow test bench.
