Smile MD/VA Spring Dyno Day and Meet '11

Woot

To occur in the month of May. The objective of the dyno day is to determine if Lars and I can make: HP > Zero

The weather should be nice and the roads warm enough for a fun rally among the foothills of ye old Appalachia. Seriously, there are some very nice driving roads in the area.

So far, this dyno day has a perfect record with no engine deaths in transit to, or on the dyno. Last Fall's turnout was pretty good with various boosted miatae, an LS3 Miata, some starquests, and some nice N/A miatas.

Put a post up here if you want to reserve a slot and I will update the list.

INFORMATIONSESES



PRICESES

$50/car ~ 3 pulls with some cool down time between pulls if you want to **** around with your .msq or quickly swap out a part. The dyno owner is a nat-aspirated miata racer so if you have some interesting part to test he might be interested in spending a little more time on it. No guarantees.

DATESES

MAY 28TH, CATURDAY

LOCATIONSESS

York Automotive
300 South Main Street
Mt Airy, MD 21771-5389

TIMELESES

9AM UNTIL 5PMISH OR UNTIL EVERYONE HAS DONE THEIR PULLS

DIRECTIONSES

Take I70 to route 27. Go straight through the traffic light and around the bend and you will be on Main street. Go down main street about a mile until you reach an "old town" area. About as soon as you reach the "old town" area, you will see a tiny sign for "York Automotive" on the left. Turn in alley and park in the gravel parking lot down the hill.

WHO CAN COME

Miatas are first come first serve. If you want to bring buddies who do not have miatas, that will be fine and they can do their pulls last. More the merrier but no jerks allowed.

Mission has been accepted. Now to start selling crack to get money for my Absurdflow setup quicker.

I would prefer the end of April personally, this way I possibly have time to get my car done and get it actually tuned down at DIY.

If you're not testing any EMS stuff you could do a pull with a .02 gap and then move it up to a .04 and see how close the dyno charts are?

Right now I am officially back at zero hp since my new coils are not sparking and my Hydra just stopped responding on the COM port. Hopefully that is a coincidence

Nice we are in the same boat. My coils don't spark either. Have you tried calling FM and talking to them about it? I know they sell an LS coil kit now, so they might actually be helpful.

Better for me. If I don't have my car on the road by then, it will be because my wife got it in the divorce.

Michael Jackson, the other white meat.

Are they wheeling his corpse out on stage while Chinese contortionists lick themselves suspended from a trapeze upside down?

Yeah I may come, I've added it to my calendar. 3 hour drive 1 way on my birthday...hmmm. I may be on my boat drinking lots of corona lights that weekend...memorial day and all.

But by then my car will be on the road with a new manifold I'm doing and Lars' setup will be done too. It'd be nice to see them both on the dyno!

And as far as waiting until fall for a setup, that may be a good thing. I think there might be some new stuff coming soon in terms of manifold suppliers and turbos. It might be smart to wait and see what the BW EFR's can do and setups made around them (no necessarily made by me).

My setup better be done by then, or I will cry.

I am sure there is some one in MD who would probably let you crash at their house Friday night if you wanted to come down then.

I will see if I can get the red beast out on the road for that weekend. I need to put my turbo on and wideband gauge and start tuning I have just been lazy.

If you come tim I will buy you a male stripper and a gallon of paint thinner to huff for your birthday.

In all seriousness if you can arrive at 9am I will bring some nice bottle of islay scotch to the dyno day and we can all do shots and sober up by the time we have to get on the road and drive back home.

What is your new manifold for your car like?
