UPDATE !!! - Dyno day GTG?
« on: January 10, 2005, 04:19:17 PM »
I think we should try to plan a dyno day GTG.  I would like to know what I have HP and Torque wise in my car, as I am sure others would.

Can anyone suggest a place that has a dyno, that we might be able to make a deal?  I think if we can get enough people together this would be a fun day.

What-ch tink??

I think Mac autosports has a dyno that they might be willing to work something out on, I think there's a place down in Parker too...I read about it in another thread.
However, it's about $60 or so for a three-run dyno, so it may not be worth it to get a deal. That's the same price as a half-day at the track.
Anyway, I'd be very down, but not until after my installs in Feb. So if you go before, that's cool, if not than just go by myself ;)

I think this is a great idea. I'd love to know what my REAL numbers are all things considered.

Ya gotta figure they are lower than the hype suggests and people are always asking. Plus, I'd like to see what the real before/after differences are with the exhaust I'm planning on installing here in the very near future.

There's a place out here in Aurora that I've dyno'ed my car at before. Paragon Tuning. I know the guys there and they might be willing to work something out. I'd have to talk them up. Having real numbers of people who are truely interested in doing this would be a very helpful bit of ammo when I go in to talk to them. They have a very new DynoJet 248c. They are the same place I and Rusty bought our FMICs from. They're mainly a Honda tuning shop, but they are truely cool fellows that never turn up their noses at anyone choice of cars. One of the owners like to mess around with SuperCharged M5s! So they do speak German, if you know what I mean.

I really would like to see what my car is putting out now as well. The last time I had it done was a while ago and there have been many mods since. Back then the car put down 178.2WHP and 226.2 WTq. I would hope the mods have only increased those numbers, but I'd like to see!

I ask them about it if you guys are serious.

I would like to do a dyno day.  We need to make sure that the dyno is an AWD dyno. The one in Parker is. Not sure about the others.

Vortex folks:

I also think late Feb or early March is a good time.  Any suggestions for specific dates?

As far as AWD dynos, there are only a couple choices out there. One is located in Ft. Collins if my memory serves me correctly and I thought the other was in Parker. But maybe Pat will chime in on this and let us know.

The one I suggested is not an AWD dyno, but a good one.

As for dates, I say lets try to do this toward the end of February. That way we can really flesh this out and allow some folks a chance to get some mods done. I'm sure we could make this a big event if we worked on it. Maybe we could include this into one of the things we done every year, much like the annual RMCB5 National GTG where we have a track day event. We have a repution for throwing big GTG parties and doing them well, why not this too?

Winston, Jay any thoughts?

I am certainly up for this.  GIAC has finally put into production the W8 chip, and I will be updating my ECU this spring.  I would love to do a dyno before and after.  I too need AWD...

I agree that this shoud meet our usual high standard for GTG's.  It will be fun and usefull information to have.

If you guys can, post the names and numbers of places that have Dyno's.  If you have a connection, please call them and see what they say.  If not, I would be happy to call and see what we can put together.

MAC is definitely an AWD dynomometer.  They charge $65 for 3 AWD pulls.  $55 for FWD.  They are in Parker and are busy.  

Make an appointment.

Also, I would wait until spring since the winter gasoline here has 10% ethanol added which will reduce your output.

Both Pat and my WRX buddy Bill have been there.

Yes. Spring is good. Even at the price I don't need a discount. I've called them a few times about different odds and ends and they really nice and helpful.
Tish said she's wanting some more juice out of her Jetta...so she may be on the list too.

I use this place over on Parker road for Gas. JR turned me onto it. They sell 93.5 octane gas at prices better than most places sell 87 octane gas!

I'd load up on that stuff before doing the dyno.

Maybe the hot air is fine for you non-turbo cars but I would like a nice cold day myself :D

I have been to MAC in Parker. I went out there with several other Audi guys. Lots of fun, nice guys.

There is a 100octain pump at I-25 and bellview. Not cheap ($4.50 gallon) but if you want to artificially boost your numbers that is the way to do it.

I myself would like to know "Real" numbers. Meaning I want to know what I put down on the gas I normally run.

Ditto...it'll be 93.5 for me as that's what I run every day and the station is probably less than 200yds. from my house :wink:

For all those none chipped people that might want to chip (myself included)...Group Buy on chip?

Maybe if we knew someone at Avalon motorsports we could have them sponsor a GB on chips!

Just thinking out loud.  I would be interested if I am chipped by then or chipped on that day (before and after #'s).
