Default 6th Annual NE Dyno Day poll

It's that time of year again to start planning for the 6th Annual NE Dyno Day! Woo! Pretty much will be similar to last year so cool cars, peeps, food, and fun. Pricing and details to follow, but this is to figure out the best date, so please vote so we can pick the date that most people can make it.

Location is in Newark, DE and we usually run from 8-9am to mid afternoon, but can go until 8pm if necessary. It is NOT a loading dyno, but the guys there are pretty flexible and let us do what we want. This is NOT a tuning day as proper tuning takes hours and we would only be able to run a few cars.

I was hoping to find a dyno that doesn't inflate the numbers so much.

Stop scaring off the noobs. We all know your 300hp was real. Just because everyone makes the power they should be making on the dyno and you go an put down "impossible" numbers. And if I remember correctly, probably the same peeps who said that it was impossible that I made more than 220rwhp with 1.8 injectors.

I didn't vote cause I can make it on either day. I missed the Paul birthday extravaganza, but I made it last year. I'm not sure if I'll have my clutch in the car by then, but it'll definately be running on the 460's and tuned.

I can't talk at the moment, I just took my head apart so I can drop it off at a machinist tomorrow. I had to touch it, freaking thing drove 9 months straight without a hiccup.

You can plan on me dynoing my CRX HF. If I put down over 50whp I'll get a boner!

PS - My car finally got its new PCV valve installed last week. Hopefully no more clouds of smoke and oil while dyno testing.

Does it need help getting the rollers going? Maybe hustler can send his pet gerbil over to start running on the rollers after we strap the CRX up?

Is this going to be strictly a Miata event? I told my friend about it, and he asked if he could bring his camaro. '02 LS1 6speed, with a few bolt ons.
