Default 2010 Northeast Dyno Day Date Poll!

Since no one else can pickup a god damn phone (<cough>Artie<cough>)and make one phone call, I'll do it.

A poll for the best date for the most people to attend and then I'll set it up and details to follow. FWIW, the later in the fall we go, usually the colder it is, but also gives more time for people to get things done. We always seem to get a overcast/sprinkle day in the spring, and colder than usual in the fall so keep it in mind while you vote bitches.

Location will be in Newark, Delaware at the usual dyno place that we go to that has always been accommodating.

Bad news. ACA Performance sold their dyno because they were not making enough money off it so if this goes down, we'll need to find a new place. I know of some other local places that might work with us in terms of being flexible like ACA so not sure if people would be up for something in PA, outside of Philadelphia.

How far is York Automotive in Md from everyone? They are a miata shop and have a load bearing dyno.

For those who don't know, that would be York Automotive in Mt. Airy, MD.

Not York Automotive in Myersville, MD or any of the numerous automotive establishments in York, PA which is what would turn up if you simply googled "York Automotive."

I didn't talk to this guy, but I can. KDRotary. It's easily accessed from I78. It's in Lenhartsville, PA, and they have a dyno and probably will hook us up. I think the web site is www.KDRotary.com ?

Here's the address too:

300 South Main Street
Mt Airy, MD 21771-5389

That's my vote for a location. Ed owes my a dyno pull too so...

From our last dyno day there, we can start pulls around 9/10 oclock and go until around 5. Costs are $50/participant. 3-5 dyno pulls are included for that price (depending on time and amount of participants). AFR, torque/hp readout is provided.

Positive on the shop- the last dyno day, nobody blew a motor!

If you look at the US as a whole, the NorthEast is more than just CT and Mass.

Yep, and even parts of Maryland were south of the Mason-Dixon line.

This is like the discussion we always have in Jersey about what's North, Central, and South. If you cut Jersey in 3 parts its different than what people assume as north, central, and south. If you look at a map of the US and had to cut it into North and South without knowing any history, you may or may not include Virginia. The state can swing both ways.

Whoever made that map forgot to yellow out northern maine.

Everything south of Jersey is the 'south' to me.
