It sounds like fun to me. BUT tuning takes a lot longer than a dyno day, since it takes at least 10 runs to do any real tuning and we have to give time for cool down, warm up and jet changes/ etc. Tuning requires the engine to stay at the same temps.. and the gear oil as well.. variables are the enemy.

I'd say at most we could do 5 cars, but even that would require everything going perfectly, no failures, no oil leaks and no ill running engines..

I'd love to do this, if someone wants to organize it for the club I'd be glad to try to work out a time that we can make it happen.. You guys really need the tuning!! Just ask Caveman and Walker!

Looks like - TURBO / THANG / NUT / MAJOR /

Will see if we can coordinate on a date once Jake can check his calendar and if Nut can buy lunch
for everyone.

Yep, I'll do 3 cars all day for 350.00, or 125.00 each if we do more than that, up to 5.. 3 cars is a much more managable number, but more than 3 people want to do this and need to do this! What are ya'll schedules like on the 23rd of May?? ( I can handle 3 cars all by myself, but if we do more I'll need to have an Employee here, hence the added charges.)

There is no limit to the number of runs that anyone will get, if someone hass to change parts or has an issue they'll roll off the dyno and we'll roll someone else on, then they can come back on once repaired or after their part swap is made..

This damn Calendar that I have says that Memorial Day is on the 30th!!

Oh well, if the race is on the 23rd then we'll have to move it to the 30th, no matter when Memorial Day is!

So, I gues it'll be the 30th.. Who is good with that??

we need to find out how many cars a going to do? Jake do you want only three cars because threes cars is alot to do in one day. I think we should do only three cars so nobody gets mad because somebody got more time on the rollers then somebody else, but it is up to Jake ?

Good point Justin , you know how tender some of us are. Laughing I am in for the 30th if thats the date. Cool

Not to speak for Jake but it sounds like we have several cars and we dont want to overload his time , I am sure this is something that can be done more than one time. Maybe we do three cars and then three in a month of so. just a thought.

Don't worry about my time.. I'll be here at 0430 and I'll stay till midnight.. No problem there..

BUT we have to be realistic about what can be done.. Complicated cars take longer to tune.. Thang's engine will probably take the longest since it's new and not proven yet.

You guys figure it out, if you want to do 3 thats what we'll do.. If you want to do 5 we can do that too..

You guys will be working at my pace, so we'll get lots done no matter what.. And we might break something too!!! WHOO HOO!!

OK, so its May 30th then.. Cool!

The more I think about it, I think the magic number would be 4 cars and we could stagger when people arrive, like the first pair get here early and the second pair arrives at noon, that way we get more done with less clutter and confusion. By the time the second pair arrives, the first pair will be close to finished.

We may have another one of these days later, like in July to tune those that can't make it for this one..

Bring jets, fuel and your thinking cap..

Be much better than that. Not only will you get to see HP and TQ numbers but you will get to gain some knoledge from them and go home with a better running ride bounce .

Now HP per CC can be put to the test and see who is doing what with how much Shocked .

My best was 99.41 with a 1776 which is 99.41/1776=0.05597 HP per CC on 93 pump gas cheers . And it runs cooler now than when I went to the Mountian because it is not too lean in the main jets.

Cool , If the 4 I listed are the only ones then . Thang and major can probly get there earlier since they are closer than me and trubo. Figured I would leave real early and get there mid morning. 9 to 10am
