UPDATED: Chicago BMW Dyno Day

DYNO DAY CANCELLED BY SHOP OWNER!

I just received a phone call from the shop owner of Speed Inc and he said he won't be able to do the dyno day until spring time. His excuses:

* Its too cold outside
* I don't have sufficient staff and there is too much going on in my shop
* My parking lot is all iced up and the drive in is on a terrible incline
* Its not cost effective for me. I need to be running the heater all day long. And with the door constantly opening and closing.


As you can see this is some major BS, but at least he called me early enough to notify all the people.

Sorry about that guys!

I will call around and see if I can find a dyno shop that will do it for us soon. I'll also look for a AWD dyno as well.

Vasil

Cool! I'll have an exact date in December next week. The shop manager is putting the December schedule next week.

if I FINALLY get my tune by then maybe I'll join in. 2 pulls for $75 seems like a crappy discount though. I remember dyno days being 3 pulls for $75 or something (maybe it was 3 for $100 but thats still cheaper).

Should get a base line first, don't you think? That's what I am doing before I get GIAC S2

eh, they don't want to dyno me before hand so fuck it, i'm not paying just to know what I was stock... dont really even care what my #'s are after but it'd be nice to be able to tell people who are also interested in the tune. maybe i'll ask jake to fit the bill.

I'll find out the details. The shop manager is preparing their schedule for December next week. I will get back with him and finalize the date and time.

If I am missing anyone on the list, please, let me know.

As for payment, I think we just pay them directly once we get there.

No. Its a 2wd one. However, I am talking to another shop and they do have a 4wd one. I am trying to see if I can get a better price/deal than the one at speed inc.
