Of course its your job you lazy bastard. Why else would you be on the forum? You can't expect people to search through posts to find useful information. Jesus, why don't you stop being a whiny ***** about it. That guys question seems perfectly reasonable, no one on here has ever covered those questions.

here's an equally stupid comment from the local board in response for me asking to use his dyno:

Quote:
I can put you in contact with my tuner, he would be wiling to rent out his Dynojet 224C. It's no Dyno Dynamics, but you probably wouldn't steady state MS anyhow.

Let me know if your interested and I'll forward you his info.
I asked him why I don't want to "steady-state" MS, lol. I guess if it doesn't cost $8000 its not worthy of a modern dyno and belongs on the budget rollers.

I'm going to start a thread in the mod section about putting hustler's phone number as a page header on the site so that the n00bs will be able to quickly get help swapping their bolt ons from their 2JZ to their BP without junking up the forums.

I'm pretty sure I've said this before, but searching is a whole lot easier when other people do it for you.

Wow is that dude going to be disappointed to find out he can't turn his miata into a 10000000000000hp dyno queen with the stock motor.
