Default Official: SFBA Dyno Day 4/10

It's a go! The SFBA dyno day is on! It will be held on Saturday, April 10th at 9am. The location is:

Dyno Labs
25 Beta Court unit N
San Ramon, CA 94583
(925)831-8240
www.dynolabs.net

Our host will be Ray Razon, owner of Dyno Labs.

The dyno used will be a Dynojet 248c. With the gracious help of Gary Miyakawa, a special sensor will be used to pickup and enable the Dynojet to record torque numbers in addition to horse power numbers.

Ray has a grill so foodwise, we should think of this as a potluck. There will be burgers and hotdogs, but please feel free to bring drinks, foods, and sweets. For those inclined to "grab" something to eat, an In/Out Burger joint is a few blocks away.

I know there are several members who are interested in seeing what different combinations of injectors, chips, tuning boxes, and such put out in terms of hp and torque numbers. This is the perfect opportunity to do so. Even if you're not interested in having your car put on the dyno, this is a great chance to see how it's done.

If you are interested in having your car dynoed, the cost is $60 per car, with each car getting three "pulls" or dyno runs. Due to the time needed to setup each car on the dyno, each car signed up for the dyno must complete all three pulls. Single pulls and swapping cars around to make up a $60 session will not be allowed (Sorry, but these are the rules!).

Those signed up for dyno runs are:

1. scruzsyncro (Bill) Pending (Might not be able to make it)
2. Chugbug (Jolene)
3. Bogstomper (Rudy)
4. GassinGerhard (Gary)
5. Peter Cheuk (Peter)
6. First D (Eric)
7. mackwood (Jason)
8. dlai (Dan)
9. Hesh (Chris)
10. Peter Pyce (Peter)
11. Pcar996 (Shawn)

Observers who will be watching are:

1. Norman
2. TDICa (Mike)
3. NewTDI (Andrew)
4. Ian46

Food Potluck:

1. Korean Chicken (Dan)
2. Soda/Water (Peter C.)
3. Surprise (Eric)

This has the makings of being a really special and great GTG! Keep watching this thread for further developments as the date gets closer and please post to this thread if you are interested in having your car dynoed, or are just attending to watch!

Thanks.

Dan

I was up there this past weekend...Peter P has my steelies and I have the Avus' on my car. We talked about have our timing belts done in April, also I'm thinking about having the clutch done. Don't know if the TBs and dyno can occur on the same weekend I would probably take off Thursday and Friday to have everything done then we can dyno Saturday.

May want to discuss with Peter.

I am interested, but more to see head-to-head comparisons of the RR B216 (.203) vs. the PP520. If someone already has the B216 installed (and I'm pretty sure Peter Pyce does), we can probably scare up someone who already has the PP520 and swap them in, or get a test sample from KERMA -- see this thread where KERMA makes the offer.

I could be a guinnea pig but I'm sure we already have a bunch of volunteers who could do this as well.
