Aside from that, I get a boner everytime I go there as there is usually 20+ 3rd gen RX-7's there, some with LS swaps. They tune everything. My friend has a 98 C5 vette, and he dropped it off to get long tune headers a catless x pipe, and a dyno tune. They called him back 2 days later and said, "pick you car up cause it's done." I can't remember what they charged, but it was PENNIES.
It's pretty central located.
Philly guys would take 476 to northeast extension towards allentown, then I-78 is like 15 minutes to Speed 1.
MD guys could take I-83 to Harrisburg, then I-81 to I-78, then it's like 45 minutes to Speed 1.

Ugh. Nobody from VA would show up and I want to see Scott make 230hp for the fourth time in a row.


This is my dyno day and it's gonna either be in MD or NOVA.


Again, who here would be willing to prepay? Wherever we do it, we can probably get a much better rate AND/OR more time on the dyno if we rent it out for the day.

I used to cut Rt 125 every Sunday that it was nice out when I had my Ducati 916. Shamokin is about 1 hour from Speed 1, but there are a pile of other decent roads to cruise on that are closer.

You guys would kill me if you met at Speed1! My house is in Hershey, PA (so close) but I go to school in Blacksburg, VA (so far). Would be a good reason for a trip home though, so you might get one to show from VA haha. Granted, all you would see is a 1.6 in all its 175k mile stock glory. I would like to see some shmexy turbo miatas for once.

I think they do some sort of dyno day in the spring to start off the season, we could probably hop on that.

Would anyone come up to Pittsburgh?

Mach 5 is expensive. They told me $100 for a baseline (i'm guessing 3 pulls) and $20 more if I want AFR printout (REALLY?)

They have dyno days for $75 a pop, which is still pretty expensive.

It's a nice, neat place though!

Moore's has a decent setup. AWD load bearing dynojet. I have dynoed on it previously at a dyno day back in 09. I know they do semi regular dyno days. I will talk to one of my friends who is close with them about what it takes to setup a day.

AWD ? Great!

Since this is a Miata dyno day I guess it would make sense for me to dyno my subaru.

Well? Where's it at boyz? I am getting anxious on wasting a whole Saturday to drive to a dyno that I'm not gonna strap my car to.
I'm gonna say...if It's anything south of Mt. Airy or the place where we used to dyno in DE, then I most likely won't be making the drive.

Getting in touch with the Andrewtech guys up in Gaithersburg, they might be able to make it happen for us.
