Maybe this is a dumb question, but is there any tuning benefit if one were to brake boost on the dyno?

I would imagine the only difference is it could possibly alter the graph to show power sooner because of decreased spool time. Although, you NEVER want to touch the brakes on the dyno. The weight of the drums will want to push the car off. I understand what your trying to do but in the end, no, it's a bad idea.

Bad idea. 4th gear, 3000lb+ rollers and inertia will make quick work out of your back brakes. Plus it won't accomplish anything.

So...it WAS a dumb question. The sort of question that one would ask who has never been near a dyno.

Who cares if it was dumb or not? It was out there, was answered, and many have learned from it. Congrats to you for asking.

actually its not really a stupid question, dynos such as mustang dynos and dynapacks actually have brakes built into the dyno to put a load on the engine so they can create a higher load than the standard roller dyno can and allows for much more accurate tuning
