Default itchy

i finally received my link. i bought pitlab's old mk1 a few months back. i had a friend of mine add the updated circuits. i now have everything i need to to install the system.

unfortunately, this weekend is pillow biters at the gap weekend and my wife wants to go. i'll begin next week and should hopefully be completed by next weekend.

friend of mine with a SBB FM2 on a '94 (gt25r) had his dyno tuned at p1 auto near charlotte this week. stock motor, he made a conservative 212hp and 229 ft lbs of torque at 12psi. they told him to come back in the fall for a little better fine tuning. i hope to join him with mine. $100/hr on wbo2 dyno tuning. i figure 2 hours will do it. i only plan to run upto 10 psi.

Loki... sounds like you are talking to sound performance or something. Chat with me if you want to find some better dyno rates. I have a few people that will get me on for personal tuning ALOT cheaper.

When Im ready Ill definitly come to you. It was AMS that told me that for their price and they are booked till OCT! They do dyno pulls for 100/hr

I wouldnt go there cause of how espensive they are, was just there to pick up a gasket.

PBATG weekend huh? Sounds epic.

AMS has quite the reputation, but at 225 an hr, they can go spend the weekend at (see above).

standard in ATL is $100/hr and getting a group together for a day always brings price down as it's guaranteed biz for the shop.

The dude that BEGI uses is in New Braunfels. I can't recall their name, but I'm sure if you call Stephanie could give you the name.
