Come join us for our annual Dyno Day at Performance Autosport on Saturday, 2-26 at 9am. Three pulls with air-fuel ratio for $60 and the price drops to $50 if we can get 10+ cars. Come see Performance Autosport's new shop, complete with a showroom full of Saleen Mustangs, at 2179 Tomlyn St. in Richmond.

Please let me know who is coming by signing up here.

You saw it on the calendar, but I edited the post to show the date as well. It wasn't meant to be a hunt. Hope you can join us.

Count me in.  I'll be bringing the E30 just to get some baselines.  Looking forward to it!

I'll be there with the prelude.

Do you know if there is any one there who can do a tune on a hondata setup?

I'd call them up and ask.  They specialize in American cars, but I've definitely seen a 4th gen Supra in there as well.

When you call, ask for Kevin. I know he has tuned a supercharged NSX as well.

We have 3 cars and a couple of spectators for next Saturday, 2-26. Anyone else planning to come? I need to give Kevin a count on Monday.

David, Bernard an I may want 2 slots, but we won't know for sure until Sunday.  We need to install a header/exhaust sys, upgrade the Megasquirt, move the radiator and water pump and rework the fuel sys to accomodate the radiator...  We will keep the one slot that we have now and try to let you know about the second by Sunday afternoon.

David, we would like 2 slots, back to back if possible to avoid moving the car between pulls.  We can work with whatever times are available during the day.

We are set for Saturday at 9 at Performance Autosport. 3 cars (Jeff & Audie's, Steven's, and Gene & Bernard's)/4 slots. I am sure we can fit another couple in if someone wants to show up.

See you Saturday.

Don't forget to bring a thumb drive if you want an electronic copy of your dyno charts.

I'm also interested in getting my car corner weighted. Does anyone know if performance autosport can do that as well?  Thanks.

Steen,

I don't know the answer. I suggest you call Kevin at Performance Autosport (3five8-twenty-five05) and ask. If he can't do it, Courtney Cormier probably can. You can email Courtney at his full name with no dots or spaces @verizon.net. Courtney did mine.

Many thanks to David and all those who helped organize this. I had a lot of fun and gained a lot of confidence in my car.  Anyone curious about what kind of numbers thier car is actually making, you should be sure to take advantage of this day if it happens again next year.

Also thanks to the 350z owner for the video of my pulls.

See everyone on march 27th!
