Default SE (Atlanta) Dyno Day?

I'd like to do this before the heat arrives and before my transmission grenades. What's the odds of doing this in the next month with reasonable participation? I know some of y'all are getting close to putting the cars on the ground - right?

I'm down for the dyno day. Gotta few new things to install first though
If I could recommend a dyno, BPM in Sugar Hill has an awesome facility with a dynojet in its own heavily air conditioned room. Other places are fine too.

Maybe a Saturday or three before the dyno day we could also hook up at my dad's shop and get some tweaking done. Ben (Atlanta93LE) has a lot of turbo bits that would look good on his car.

So you'd be ready mid-May? What kind of deal should would wager with "the shop" based on turn-out? I know Ron at BPM so I'm sure he'd work with us. Some racers might have an issue with sunbelt right next door- since they don't have a sunbelt engine. We'll see.

I think mid-May would be pushing it for me. More realistically, I'm thinking I'll be more like mid-June, and it might be pretty hot by then. So, unless I really get cracking, you guys should plan on me not having a car there.

A few of us could have you boosting before the sun sets on a Saturday...

I might be interested to check out my megasquirt tune. Depends on how long it takes me to get it put together.

Hard not to notice, it's like I diarrheaed on the for sale section. I'm selling some parts off the miata I just purchased to off set its purchase price.

The standard "group" rate seems to be $50 for 3 pulls, but a bit lax if someone needs to take an extra pull or needs to get off the dyno for some tweaks between pulls. IIRC BPM charged me $150 for an hour, but I went 20 minutes over and took 25 or so pulls and they didn't charge extra. They were real cool.

What? The GTO isn't quick enough to drive here?
It would be cool to get this going May 12 - ya know - North vs. South.

Ben93LE - what's your "to do" list look like?

Well, I'll start with what is already done:

bipes
boost gauge
fmu

Things I can get done quick before final install committal:

get injectors cleaned and installed w/ diy dual-feed rail (I have an extra rail)
install Pierburg

So that leaves:

install bung on dp for wideband
actual turbo/mani/dp install
adjust rad. and squeeze in intercooler for quick over-the-rad setup (2" pipes)
route bov
tap pan
install torsen setup
tune

I drove a viper from ATL to Las Vegas... I would have rather flown.

Ben- I guess this is your DD? I was up in duluth/alpharetta Sunday welding up an exhaust for an ITA Miata- could have done your O2 bung then (you're up there right?).

I don't like driving. Car only has 10k on it and I'm not wrapping up another 2400 by driving it there when it won't even be enjoyable.

I'll kick around going

I've been watching this thread. I'd come on down but I go back to Alaska on May 10th for 4 months and the car is going into storage. If it was in the fall or something I'd be down but I can't make it this time around. Last final exam is May 4th. Travel to Florida on May 5th. Come back to TN, fly to Alaska on the 10th to start operating for AIC doing some good ol' road construction for the summer.

Well, not just the time. I also don't have the tools to tap the pan, and I've been taking my sweet time accumulating parts when the deals come up.
