I seem totally lost.
What I'm reasonably certain about: Dyno day is Saturday May 12th.
What I don't know is where!

Is it back at York?

You gotta stop implying things. Once your brain reaches age 30 or so, even details that are spelled out precisely are hard to figure out. Anything that requires reasoning is beyond us!

Just dropping my new/old engine in, swapping heads etc. Hopefully back to drivable by the 12th. Then I'm in.

if they are like the mustang shops down here in VA, they wont want to hook up a silly import car to their dyno, and want to charge crazy prices, and make you submit to a total car inspection before hand, that they also charge for.

They have a v8 swapped miata on their facebook page and one of their track cars is a Hyundai Accent hatch....

So I think our silly import cars will be ok.

I have a feeling I'll have gone back to N/A and then build a new set up, then maybe blow my motor and rebuild it, before this happens.

OK I just talked with Andrew @ Adrenaline.

To rent out the dyno:
$1100 8am-3pm

Or for individual cars:
Hour for $90 per car.
or
3 pulls $85

dynojet

They could do 4 people in an evening. Or Saturday if scheduled in advance. He would prefer evenings.

So renting it for 7 hours (8:00 AM to 3:00 PM) is $1100, but renting it for 7 individual hours is 7*$90 = $560?

WTF?

Looks like my prediction is not that far off, as I have started building my new manifold.

my local dyno/fabrication place is having a dyno day on June 23
https://www.facebook.com/events/351443404911663/

However, it's expensive and I'll probably be at a track day that weekend.
