Heading to the Dyno


I have an hour reserved at an SCCA 'rent a dyno' event in NE PA.

I can do as many runs as I like as well as "tuning".

What should I try and tune on the 500E and 190E 2.3-16v?

I wanted to just get the current numbers, but the tech said an hour is a long time to have to kill if I am not tuning.

He also said I could do 3 or 4 cars for just straight runs.

Anyone around PA want to come and play?

sure wish your dyno testing was here in Atlanta, I've always wanted to put my cars on one but never have. Let us all know what your results are......

Be very careful.
Check your oil & tire pressures.
Make sure you have a BIG fan in front of the car.
Other than doing a quick swap with something simple, like a K&N airfilter vs. stock, you really don't have the time to do too much.
Have fun.

P.S. Make sure the car is strapped down REALLY tight.
