Well unfortunately it's looking as though I may have to bow out. My wife made other plans for us to be out of town. I'm still trying to negotiate that so I can at least pop out in the morning and get the car on the rollers but so far it doesn't look good :/

I did make a facebook event this morning though!

We shall see what happens. Have car going into body shop today for paint. So all depends on when she comes out and how long it has to sit for paint to cure.

Thanks to everyone who made it out, even those who came to spectate. We didn't have enough cars this time around, we only had about 5 of us that did dyno pulls, so next time we will need to get more committment.

It's worth noting that a part for reading RPM from the ODBII port didnt arrive in time from UPS so 3 diesel cars had to bow out last minute, and thats obviously not their fault. The good news is that next time it will be easier to get RPM and as long as you dont need your OBDII Port for datalogging then you wont have to remove engine covers to find a coil wire for RPM pickup.

I will likely personally need to get another dyno done this fall, so if there is demand we could arrange another one for maybe October, or we can simply wait until May to get another one in.

Thanks for setting it up Ryan! Had fun talking cars. Hope we get a few more next time. One guy showed up around 10:30 but we all left by then.
