Does extensive dynoing of the car have any negative effects on the engine due to the extended high revs or anything?
Thanks in advance for your responses...

no, there is no extended high revs either? you floor the car from a predetermined rpm until redline, and then the dyno's break slows the drums and wheels to a stop. actually, it is easier on the car then a full throttle run, because the drums on a dynojet dynamometer only weigh about 2900 pounds together, where as the actual car on the road is pushing near 3300 pounds plus wind resistance. on a mustang type dyno, it is different, as that works on resistance, but they aren't as accurate, and not that many people use them.
