Default NOVA pre-Summer Tuning Day

Ummmm so Brainy, Newb, and I want to go to a load based dyno. I'm thinking something along the lines of P-Tuning or F-tuning or some [email protected]#$%-tuning shop. I bet we'd each need a solid hour of work to get a good tune done.

Lets get a list of names and shops to start and then pick a day.

I wouldn't put your car on the dyno but you can definitely come hang. no sense tuning for 100/hour if you got nothin to tune....

my gf wouldn't come if I asked.

Haha, well she might not this time, she was enticed by the karting but I don't think was very disappointed with the day. June 2nd I go with her to a MR2 Dyno Day so I guess she's not exactly typical.

I think you really ought to get a 3" exhaust on your car before you take it back to a dyno.

hmmmm you guys treat me to dyno time and provide the raw materials (gas, wire, etc) and we can work something out maybe... a lift would be good.
