    04/30/2011 - Dyno Day - York Automotive, Mt Airy, MD

    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)?

    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.

    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.
