Joe G (Miatanutz)
Bryan W (Cargasm)
RFlynn (Local)
Jim C (Miatanutz)
Neogenesis
*Shuiend
Wayne M

Newbsauce

(*) I think needs an hour. Mike and I definitely do.

And there are a few others I've spoken to who are coming as gawkers... should be a party. If we think we need one or two more... I can discretly PM a couple guys on my Mazdaspeed6 forum.

And I still think I have at least one bed open. I just found out I've got a damn dinner thing that night, so if we get done late, I might have to pass on drinks... but I'm still gonna open my place if anybody needs a bed.

EDIT: Got one more, Wayne is a local w/original BRP running ELF.

Totally fine to crash here on Friday.

That makes 4 of us down for an hour, everybody else for 3 pulls. I think if we get the 1hr people done first, and the 3pull types starting right after that... then if we start at 830 with the 1hr people, the others should be able to kick off shortly after 1200... which would be perfect time for pizza to arrive!

Sam,
I don't need an hour, in fact I don't need dyno time at all. My car has been on that dyno 6-8hrs in the last month. I think I am good for the time being. I will be there hanging out and helping out, but I see no need to waste time on the dyno. Let somebody else have my spot.

Sounds good. I may have one or two buddies at Mazda6Club who's interested and has a new ECU... I'll check with him.

Sam,
I've got one more person to add to the list. One of the local autocross guys, Robb in his Porsche 924s.

He just got the motor rebuilt and wants a comparison dyno. No tuning needed.

We'll have another stock '04 Mazdaspeed there for you watch!

It looks like we've got 3 guys looking for an hour of tuning time, and 5-6 for 3pulls.

THIS THING STARTS AT 8:30!!! BE THERE!!!


If you're coming from a distance and want to get started home early or whatever, the schedule isn't set in stone and we can work you in whenever is most convenient for you... just let me know.

Sam,
I'd swap the order around and run the 3 pulls 1st. That way the guys tuning are not rushed. I have seen it many times where an hour is just not enough time. I hate to see a bunch of people waiting around and getting irritated because they were scheduled for "X" time and didn't get to get on the dyno till "Y" time.

Also, you may want to contact Mike. I don't know if he still needs tuning time. I know he spent some time on Abacus's dyno last week.

Roger that, NEW ORDER OF EVENTS!!! Guys running 3pulls need to be there first thing in the morning. That's 0830. They should go pretty fast, so don't be late. I'll have donuts and coffee.

I think I'm going to pass on the tuning time till I work out a few bugs. Looks Like I just need 3 pulls.

Unforgently Sam I have to drop out. I just got my credit card bill in the mail and I definately spent to much money last month. I also am having a strange problem with boost cutting off randomly that I have to figure out this weekend.

I thought about getting up a little early to hit breakfast... but then I thought about sleeping in... guess which one won?

Lunch will be someplace close... either we can have stuff delivered, or if we're done early enough, hit Moes for burritos or sumthin?
