Shop shows off its dynamometer

Pete Stop Motor Co. had a recent grand opening for its new location, and gearheads showed up to put their cars on the dynamometer to get an idea of how fast their cars can go, the horsepower they're putting out and whether they're running properly. Lead technician Carter Taliaferro said the dynamometer is for "tuning computer systems on cars to get the best horsepower and air fuel ratios out of them, to find out the mixture going to the engines." The shop, 3991 Park Blvd., says its dynamometer is one of only two in Pinellas County.
