If not to dyno hopefully you guys will still come out, I enjoy meeting everyone I can at these events and its pretty cool to be able to get people that are into all kinds of different cars together, and surprisingly get along great.

Hmm I'd be interested in getting a baseline dyno run for the Spec.B just to see where it is at stock. I might just have to get in on this. 8)

I recommend considering this a club meet.

The shop is a pretty cool spot and watching dyno pulls is always cool.

Everyone have been really cool in the past.. I think I saw a skyline there once. :)

i mentioned it to a lady at work that droves this really cool Mustang, I guess at the KCI meet they charge like $40 for a mobile dyno pull. :lol:

sounds, right on, stock. :)

I watched a Del Sol hit 91, that was with a dyno fan blowing down the intake.

Everyone was cheering, it was fun.

Yeah, the KCI meets that Paul always attends charge too much. Last time I went to a KCI meet, the mobile dyno was broken. Needless to say, the meet lost about 50% of its appeal. There were a total of 4 Subies there, though, which has to be a KCI meet record! :mrgreen:

If the stars allign and my work schedule allows, maybe I'll sign up to get the WRX strapped to the dyno. Then we can see just how potent this old map of yours is, Jeff. :)

I'll be there, and I'll have my 2 AWD cars and the Blueberry ready for some roller action.

I may just own 1000HP worth of cars. (lol).

We have tried that in the past and it failed pretty bad, if you would like to talk with someone else on this you may want to get in contact with Chad and see what his thoughts are.

Just under a month away though, I am excited for this haha

Looking like I'll be there on Saturday for a dyno run. Question since I have never dyno'd before. Would my car (2008 Legacy GT) need a wideband or no wideband dyno run? Just wondering how much I'll need to bring with me. 8)

Its not a necessity, and wont affect your numbers in any way. All the wideband does is monitors your air/fuel ratio throughout the rpm range. If youre planning on doing some modding and want to get a baseline chart, then you may want to go with the wideband.

Thanks for the explanation. Looks like I'll go with the wideband so I can get a good baseline for future power mods once I get my suspension work done. 8)

Yea when the wagon pulls in Im sure the talking will begin :lol:

If the Cobb Mustang dyno was accurate, the dynojet dyno at MCK should read a bit higher. From what I have read the dynojets read higher.

Wont be able to make the kcir trip, Im actually down in branson during the week installing an x-ray room. Be back late on friday.

Let me know what time and day you will be at the dyno. I should be able to be there.

Do M5's have a spare? Some of those have 24 roadside instead. My dad's 911 doesn't, of course those wheels and tires are the size of a 5 gallon bucket.

I think M5's have run-flat tires... which could explain why the one pictured doesn't have the factory wheels.

So it looks like a rainy weekend, good time for an indoor meet. :)

Can you guys dyno in the rain (ie wet tires?)
