Dyno day in Los Angeles/SoCal... Any interest??

I know EAS tried a few times but couldn't pull it off... anybody have contacts at a dyno shop? I know there's plenty of us that want some solid data on our car's health as well as see what actual benefit our mods are getting us, but don't want to spend $125+ for their own session. I know these guys make way more money if they can line cars up and knock them out one after another, so post up here if you can help with a contact, or even if you're interested so I can have a basic head count for the shop.

Let me know, and I'll start asking around!

Ask project import, they can only do rwd or fwd tho so no xi guys, if you guys are only doing quick dyno for numbers then it's going to be pretty cheap

I've been to a couple of dyno days at Church with my other car.. rates were pretty reasonable iirc. and they are also setup to do awd cars as well. Their shop is in Wilmington, near the port of LA

dyno day charges are on their site:
http://home.earthlink.net/~spchurch/id1.html

Code:
Dyno Day - 5-9 cars    $50/car     $70/car 
Dyno Day - 10-14 cars  $45/car     $65/car 
Dyno Day - 15+ cars    $40/car     $60/car

I believe the first number is for RWD/FWD, and the second is for AWD cars. Also, they use dynapack dynos, which read a little higher than a typical Dynojet

Thanks for the info! I was looking for Dynojet or maybe Mustang, but if the price is right we could still get a ballpark and compare cars to each other to see which mods work better than others etc

Do you know if those prices are for 3 runs and wideband reading?

so far, it's

1. tc535i
2. tc535i's +1
3. verdik
4. 1andonlySG
5. 1andonlySG +1

So that's enough for Church anyhow, $50 is actually really cheap. I gotta call and see what that entails, but does a Saturday morning sometime in the next month or two sound good for you guys?

Count me in, depending on the date we pick though. We should ask Church to take deposits ahead of time so we don't have anyone cancel the last minute and cost the rest of us.

I'm sure we'll have at least 5, if one or two cancel it'll only change our price by $5 or $10 each, that's not a big deal imo. Certainly not a deal breaker.

Church is a great place and Shawn is an awesome dude. I got my S2K (when I had one) tuned on E85 there and he was absolutely top-notch.

I can talk to the guys at EAS about a group dyno session. If there's enough AWD guys that want to join then we should probably try Church's but if there's only 2-3 then I'd say lets do EAS.
