Kevin,
     I just spoke to David and am going to give up one of my spots for you.  The headache of getting two cars there is just too much (plus we can't get a sitter).  So David please remove one of mine and add Kevin's chump car... Looking forward to it!

Thanks

I made the change. I deleted Mike's Trailblazer and substituted the Chump Car.

Any idea what you are expecting for hp, Kevin?

Right now, you are second on the waiting list. I suspect you will be fine but we will make the call the middle of next week.

If anyone is signed up and you cannot come, PLEASE let me know.

Thanks MikeDe. David, we should have about 215 at the wheels. I think a new motor is rated at 260 at the crank. This motor probably has about 200K on it, but compression tests were very respectable.

So its been a rough week for me and cars. Was going to bring the audi and its now having fuel flooding issues. So i was going to bring  the Rover mini instead but today its water pump blew. So we are now playing it safe. Still going to bring the veloster but instead of the audi i am going to bring a 1996 BMW 328i Automatic with the 2.8l stright 6. I dont see any problems with both these cars making it this weekend. Just sad that i wont see a classic audi of mini on the dyno.

I am also disappointed to miss seeing the Audi. 
Hopefully you'll have another opportunity to bring it out sometime.

I agree with Beth. I think a lot of us, including Kevin, were looking forward to seeing the Audi.

I hate to do this but I'm going to have to drop out.  My MGB has developed a massive oil leak between engine and bellhousing.  About a qt every 50 miles.

Engine is going to have to come out as I can't remove the transmission separately.  I doubt seriously I will have it back together in time.

Please give my slot to someone else.

Snow is forecast for Thursday night-Friday morning. While we hope it will not be a problem on Saturday, please check here or on the VMSC page on FB before you leave Saturday morning to make sure Dyno Day is not cancelled. We will make the call in concert with Kevin no later than 8:00 Satuday morning.

I got my son to come over yesterday afternoon and we pulled it.  I must have made a mistake putting the gasket in the oil pan.  It extruded out from under the rear main.

We did not drain engine oil before pulling the engine.  I was shocked when we made the pull and oil started POURING out of the bellhousing as we tilted the engine to miss the front apron.

Gasket is on order for delivery Monday.  I guess I'll take some time now to redo the engine compartment and seriously try to clear up that wiring nightmare you commented about.

David as of right now with the forecast with the snow up there I'm going to have to pull out. Just too far for me to drive and chance with the snow if it does accumulate. If you do decide to cancel will there be a make up date?

The threat of snow was greatly overblown. We are a go for tomorrow morning. Shane, do you want to reconsider?

Had an awesome time at Dyno Day.  Thanks David and everyone else who put this together.  Got to see and hear approximately 5000 horses (total) running down Laburnum! I think I may have made the least hp at 112hp and 104tq (top speed 114mph) all which I am thrilled with.  Stock my car had approx 90whp.....26 years and many miles ago.  I'll take it! My son and I have put many hours in this thing over the winter (so did Jeff and Audie before me) and we got 22 more than stock.  That's 9 more horses and 2 ftlbs more than my estimation.  Good Isht!

Just curious, of those who brought thumb drives today, what kind of file(s)
did you get?  Mine is just a jpg of the graph I also got on paper.

Last time I brought a thumb drive I actually got drf files, i.e. dyno data.
I had to download a (free) viewer to plot a graph from them, but it was
nice to know I had the actual data and not just a picture.
