Default Yes, I bought the dyno ;)

A few of you know this already, a couple of you have had your car on it already, but I'll stop being quiet about it now. I bought the dyno about 3 weeks ago, life's just been such a blur (including a week out of town) that I kept it low profile until now.

We'll still not be doing a ton of commercial tuning just yet, I've got some paperwork and insurance stuff to bog through, but it is a done deal and we'll schedule a dyno day for you local guys as soon as it makes sense to.

Hells yeah, so glad I don't live too far away, having someone with MS knowledge is going to make me feel a whole lot better about having my car tuned. Just a few things to improve upon before I can make it out.

I look forward to running a session on your the new setup. I'm sure it'll be operated better than it's previous owner/operator .

The intake tube is stock, the VICS is still not plugged in, and the exhaust is a cheap crush bent 2 1/4 flowmaster, so there is a couple more hp still on the table. there are also adjustable cam gears that have not been played with yet.

Looks like I'll prolly need cams to really get where I want, in the 140 hp range, one of these days. +50 fuji hp

I'd really like to trade rides, so I'll let you know.

The VICS is supposed to be good for a handful, so you should be 130 or more with it working. What cams are in the car now?

Stock 99 cams, only thing done to the head is SI valves and valve job, no porting at all.
