I'm not dynoing, I'm just gonna go and shoot the ****. I pulled my 460's and sold em, so I'm running my stock injectors again. Unless I can get my hands on a set of Yellow RX8 450's or 425's, whatever the hell they are, then I'll dyno.

BTW Mr Wishfulthinking, what car had the record power for the day? Turbo 33x?
Sigh... The power record for the day went to a Superformance Cobra putting down 375whp. ClintJG was slated to show up in his 600ish whp supercharged S54 M coupe, but didn't since come Jonathan's M Coupe (his arch-rival lol) is currently blowed up.

I should put stock injectors in my car and drive it up there NA it would be worth it I would say. I am also trying to get Bad6as to break out the LS turbo notch but he is unsure if it will be tuned by then. If so I would put money on seeing every bit of 800whp out of it.lol

The gentlest part of the day will be when we apply the ball gag to you. j/k.


We should hopefully have a good turnout. I am going to make an assumption that all local NoVA people will be meeting around Braineacks house in Arlington and heading out.

I didn't see in the first post nor elsewhere in this thread: Do we "run" the car like at the old delaware place or does the shop/dyno owner operate the throttle while we just stand by and watch? In that youtube video it looked like the same old dude ran each car.

yeah the owner runs the cars since he has to control the eddy brake. i will sit in the passenger seat with my laptop and do my thing. he's very maticulous in the way he runs the cars, making sure they are up to temp before the first run and back down to temp between runs.

That is the one. I will be out around 7:15-7:30 to help brain with his head bolts.

On the plus side my car made the 500 mile trip up mostly without incident. VVT had to be unplugged because it started acting up. Also I am leaking coolant at my turbo i think. So I have to make sure I keep radiator and overfow tank full and I am good. Hopefully I hit 300hp tomorrow.
