Who would be interested in one, and what would be the preferred month/year? Obviously this would be a very early feeler for interest, and other things like price, location, and surrounding activities would have to be arranged based on that. I'm guessing we'd probably do it at The Mustang Shop again, but there are several other places to investigate.

Yes, as though driving a flatulent 780 V6 isn't enough, I now desire to know how little power it makes.

Pole broken:(
I'd like to select "YES".

Weekends of August 6, 13 and 27 are potentially good for me at the moment.

Wish I had something cool I could dyno at this point. Dynoing the Smurf seems kinda pointless.

I'd do it...time is sort of tight for the next few months, then the car is away for the year. Perhaps spring?

I'm definitly going to dyno my car between Aug 15th and Aug 25th. If anyone can make it, that would be great. I have a line on a place, but do not know the name yet. He tuned a U of C race-car of some sort, and that is my connection. Among other things, I'm hoping to 'install' a hydrogen set-up a friend has - kind-of a joke, but as a chemist, I'm curious to do it and find-out what I can. I'm guessing if there is any effect, it will be at lower revs, as the hydrogen output doesn't appear to be to be too great. Other than that, I can see what my tunable ignition will do, and I'd like to compare different fuels - regular/premium. Then there is just how many hp etc....

Hi -

Apparently Dynasport is no longer in business, so I'm looking for somewhere else to go. The Mustang Shop?

I'll call and set a date, find-out details.

Does the Mustang Shop still have a dyno? I know Toma had his there and that's where we did the last dyno day we had. He now has his dyno somewhere else. I can check with a buddy to see where that is...

I am pretty sure Toma moved his setup to another shop other than the mustang shop.

Here is toma's link: http://www.dynomotive.ca/

I can not comment on the mustang shop, but Toma is a great guy just tough to get a hold, and I'm positive no one in town can beat his prices.

Best thing would be to try him via email
