Default Northern Virginia Dyno night @ Mach V

https://www.facebook.com/events/435732359798454/

I don't expect anyone from here to sign up for this but still worth posting

What: Mach V Dyno NIGHT

When: 10/12/12, 5:20 pm to 10:00 pm

Where: 45690 Elmwood Ct Suite 170
Sterling, VA 20166

Details:

If you haven't seen us advertise this before, dyno day (okay, this event is a dyno NIGHT) offers the chance to get a baseline or updated dyno numbers on your car for a smaller fee than on normal workdays. Cost is $75 for a slot, $25 additional for air/fuel analysis. (Normal price is $100 and $35 for a/f.) Slots are 40 minutes, which is usually enough for 3-4 pulls. (Actually more, if you want...)

It's a great social educational event, too, as lots of people come to watch and compare notes. Feel free to stop in and hang out even if you're not dyno-ing.

If you're dyno-ing your car, you'll get a paper graph to take with you, and we can also email you your dyno data files, so you can store/analyze/post your results to your heart's content.

Please call (571) 434-8333 with your credit card in hand to reserve a slot. We'll just keep the card number in case you don't show up. You can pay however you want on the day of.
As of right now there are 3 spots left. I didn't register because I don't know if my car will be ready - but I'll attend regardless. The cost is high but the place is awesome. They take 1080p video of all pulls, give you DynoJet files, have spot-on RPM and AFR readings, etc.

Can the guys at mach v tune megasquirt? I have a functional road tune going but ultimately I'd like to get a pro to tune me.

The only shop I know of that will do Megasquirt is Moore Automotive in Fairfax. I asked then once upon a time and they said $500.

Dan, shop owner at Mach V would probably be able to tune megasquirt as well but their rates are probably absurdly high. The best way to tune is to rent a dyno and do it yourself Read hustler's threads about it.

He would probably road tune and get you good enough to drive and enjoy.

He has a MS.

I wish I could make it up to this. I can't take off 2 Fridays in a row and nor do I think I will have my car where it needs to be to dyno.
