:::::: More About Us ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

InnovativeMotorWorks is the motorsports division of "Sound Innovations" in Carlisle, PA, formed in 2008. Born from a passion for creating beautiful, yet performance-oriented Honda/Acura automobiles, InnovativeMotorWorks sets out to raise the bar for EFI tuning facilities in the Northeast.


InnovativeMotorWorks specializes in Honda and Acura tuning and performance. All work performed by IMW takes place in the 1,800 square-foot shop, complete with a ten-thousand pound two-post lift paired with a separate dyno bay featuring two in-house dynamometers; a DynaPack Evolution 3000 2WD dyno and  Mustang MD-150-AWD dyno.

While primarily focused on recalibration of engine management systems, we do bring in traditional performance upgrade work such as engine building services, diagnostic work, and some fabrication.  These projects are taken on as a case-by-case basis.

 

 




The chassis dyno at InnovativeMotorWorks once more is a DynaPack Evolution 3000 model that supports up to 3,000nM of actual torque with two-wheel drive vehicles (FWD/RWD). The DynaPack is unique from nearly every other chassis dynamometer on the market for many reasons. The first and foremost difference is the lack of "rollers." The large, weighted rollers of many other dynamometers tend to provide a "smoothing" of sort to the power readings. The DynaPack has no such rollers. Instead, the drive wheels of the vehicle being tested are removed, and replaced with special spline-driven hub adapters that are inserted into proprietary power absorbtion "pods." With the DynaPack, there is no need to strap down the car being tested, since the car cannot move forward, backward, or side-to-side when the drive wheels are removed and replaced with the pods. This makes for the absolute SAFEST operating dynamometer on the market, without rival.

For AWD models, we use a Mustang MD-150-AWD dyno that can provide variable loading characteristics and allow for testing of cars that are traditionally harder to test on the DynaPack (automatics with loose converters, high-torque applications, cars with more than a 5-lug bolt pattern, etc).
