The diesel side is a whole different ballgame, but there is a pretty cool old dyne that can handle a tandem wheel coalburner, and it's pretty interesting to watch a tandem dump or tractor spool that thing up. Less the noise, and the smell, and all the rest that's associated with those pigs.
I retired from a Chevy dealer last year. I did IM 240 testing on around 6000 cars until California switched to static IM testing on everything 2000 and newer.
We never put a diesel on the dyno.
