Want to find out what power your BMW makes? I'm organizing another dyno day for you to find out!

Where:

York Automotive
300 South Main Street
Mount Airy, MD 21771

When:

April 30, 2011
9am - ???

Details:


$50.00 for most vehicles (unless your car is a "pain in the ass" like mine) - payment by cash (always preferred), check, or credit card;
Minimum of 3 runs to get a reliable reading;
Air-Fuel Ratio, Horsepower, and Torque measured;
Printouts for bragging rights;
DynoDynamics Dynometer (regarded as the most accurate in the industry);
10 spots available (but flexible if we have extras).

Please post here if you would like to attend - please post Year, Make, Model, Anticipated WHP/WTQ - we will laugh later. I'll keep it informal, so just let me know if your plans change. Also, please spread the word on other forums, etc.

NOTE: I'm the organizer of this event, not York Automotive. Please post any questions here.

Can I do this in my Miata? If so, do I get a discount for comic relief (when I estimate WHP and WTQ)?

No discount for comic relief, but definitely a-ok for a miata to attend! Let me know what slot you want and the info.

I'll take the 9AM slot if still available. Guessing 85whp and 80 wtq.

Sounds great. What's your tq / hp estimate (you may consult with Mark for guidance)? 2002 correct? 2:15 slot okay?

Can you sign me up for the '89 325is? I can do any time slot because I live about a block away.

Any spots still available?

What kind of cars do you guys have? Modified? I'll need to talk to the shop owner to see what he thinks. If they are easy to dyno, we might just be able to squeeze you in.

I think we should be able to get you in - would you like to come in the AM or PM? I put you down for around 2:15 pm. You'll just need to be patient as we squeeze you in.

PM is better. I'll show up a little early and wait until time is available. Thanks!

Do you want me to remove you or are you just giving it up if someone else wants to attend?

Just found out I have a conflict from 1 to 4. Can you work me in earlier instead?

Shouldn't be a problem. What about first thing in the AM?

No problem. Just tell me when to be there.

Shoot to be there first thing at 9:00 am and we will work you in as soon as we can. Should go relatively smoothly and fast until the "PITA" cars.

We have plenty of spots - you don't have to give yours away. See you on Saturday.

I'll be over in Frederick AutoXing with CDC in the morning. I'm running first heat in morning and afternoon so I should be done hopefully no later than 1. My dad should be able to be at the dyno at any time but I figure he might hang around the AutoX with me. We'll be over to the dyno as soon as we can though. If we get there early and there's a spot open, I wouldn't mind getting on the dyno as soon as possible. If not, the slotted time we have is fine. Can't wait to see the numbers!

Sounds good AJ. Everyone in the past has been really relaxed, so it's a good chance you can sneak in whenever.
