Well since I am from Salinas as well. There is only one shop in Salinas

Ralph Willis Automotive on Sherwood Dr. He has a dyno, but is not familiar with megasquirt, and wants to learn. He has seen a few on V8s, but no one has let him play with one yet.

Other wise the next shop that I found that openly advertises they tune Megasquirts is Dyno Spot Racing (DSR) in San Jose. They use a Dynojet dyno though.

Now if you can convince some one from here to tune your Megasquirt. There is Full Function Technology in Hayward. They have a Mustang Dyno that seems to be the preferred dyno, due to it being a load holding dyno. Also I understand the Mustang has truer HP, and torque numbers.

trackspeed. There are two people on the planet who I'd let "tune" my car and trust, Andrew Kidd, Nick Salyer (NS-Fab), and myself.

I tried emailing Trackspeed but it bounces back. There's no other contact info on their site other than email.

I need to get some dyno time soon, preferably with someone familiar with MS.

Please PM me if you know how to reach them by phone or alternate email. Thx
