It's not bad for me....but then I wouldn't be able to stay over at brgracer's house.

Plus, no karting?

The only thing I can think of in or near Mt. Airy are:

1) J&P's pizza (gotta try the bacon and french fry pizza and use ranch dressing or marinara to dip it in!)

2) 75/80 drag strip. Maybe Friday night? I ran a 16.2 with my Toyota Sienna minivan and my son in the baby seat! They weren't too happy when they found out that he was in the van on my 2nd attempt.

1 hour and a half at most for me...once I see a list of who all is going, I'll make up my mind. I'm still not dynoing though.

Here's the deal with most local places. They don't want to block out a day unless they are certain a good number of cars are coming and of course people don't commit until they know where it is so, it's a whole chicken/egg situation. Long story short, I need to know how many people really plan to DYNO assuming it's $50 for four pulls with wideband. The other assumption is that the dyno place is within twenty minutes of Philadelphia as a location. Let me know.

I'd be down if it's near Philly or NJ and most those days work for me. York is too far for me.

Philly area is full of win for me, and I might even think about dynoing just for ***** and gigs. I'm on stock injectors, so I'm keepin it under 8psi, but if I'm dynoing, then I'm supportin the cause, right? I would just like to see how close my MS-2 standalone on roughly 8psi gets to my previous MS-1 parallel with CAS 209whp at 11.9psi.

Yeah but will we have time between the 4 pulls to do things like turbo swaps?!

Erm I would be dynoing. I might not have my VVT set up so I may try a few VVT maps for fun.

My car is running the best management setup I've ever had on it. It won't even blow smoke all over the place on the dyno again, maybe just stink a little...but yeah, count me in for dynoing. If it's near Philly I might be able to get 1 or 2 friends to dyno also so we can keep the group discount as low as possible.

It can't be a coincidence that I am riding in your car 3x a week. It is absorbing my sweat which some scientists classify as a universal miracle tonic.
