Sonic Tester Equipment

Dakota sonic tester for verification of block and head wall thickness.

Sonic tester, used by our machine shop staff to check wall thicknesses on vintage engine blocks and cylinder heads prior to porting.

Muscle car engines and high powered racing engines create lots of heat along with other internal engine pressures. Using the sonic tester, we can accurately verify current wall thicknesses and ensure planned machine work will not reduce the remaining wall thicknesses beyond acceptable engine specifications. Ignoring engine specifications may allow for getting to close to water jets or oil passages, later causing overheating and other costly engine repairs.
