For those who haven't left yet, I snipped this from the May dyno day thread so you can save $4 by hopping off 95 one exit early (from the south).

From Elkton Road, you can either take Otts Chapel Road to Old Baltimore Pike, or go up to Route 4 (Christina Parkway/Chestnut Hill Road) to Rt. 72 to Old Baltimore Pike.
Here, I drew a map.

assuming it is downpouring, are they going to still run it? Last dyno day I got 1/2 way there and got a call from Paul saying they were butfuks and scared of running the dyno, only to let us on after a half our.

(yea sometimes it pays to sleep in)

EDIT: Meg isn't coming...she only thinks it's interesting if I dyno something. Ha.

Braineack and shui... sheu... shiu... Lars. When I caught back up after taking the scenic Harbor Tunnel (thought it would be faster, wasn't) I noticed you were a man down. Did you leave neogenesis on the side of the highway in Baltimore? And is he armed?

So on the way home from the dyno. About mile marker 103 on 95 South in Maryland. Brians motor blew. We had just gotten on 95 and he was in boost and I saw some white smoke coming out his exhaust. I called him to let him know. He said it was probably just running rich. A few minutes later a ton of smoke started pouring out. We pulled over and his engine bay was covered in oil. It was shooting out the valve cover whenever he would get into boost. So he believes the rings are gone. He decided to keep going and to stay out of boost. I am hoping he made it home ok.

He split off on 295 or something because it was quicker for him to get home.

Brian (neogenisis) made something like 250hp. Scott will prob post the graphs later. He thinks the rings went from the extra 6 degrees of spark he added in on the dyno.

On the bright side of things. I did give him a set of rings today for a 1.6.
