I called Jan Dinan. She was a client of mine back when I worked at Marriott years ago. She was setting up banquet rooms for training back then where dealerships from around the US would come and Dinan would do training on their products for them.
Then I ended up talking to Chris in their Sales Dept, who invited me down to their headquarters in Morgan Hill. He gave me a tour of the facilities from the install bays, engine assebley area with their machines to hone blocks, their engine dyno room, exhaust assebly area, etc. It was all really cool! They are working on motors for Rolex 24hr races, Ferrari race motors, etc. They had some very cool cars in there including Steve Dinan's M3 and Jan's 335, all getting some cool stuff done to them.

Anyways, yea, they gave me the stickers.

If you just go down there, I'm sure they don't mind. Just act like a potential customer and they will show you around.

I saw a big shelf with about 20 superchargers on it. Too bad it was so warm yesterday and I wasn't wearing a shirt big enough
