The SCMC will be having it's dyno day with us on 5/20/2006. Pro-Dyno will be providing the dyno and I think it will be $50/3 pulls with A/F. As time gets closer, we can set up a list for who wants to jump on and hopefully by then we'll have a car ready to peg Dan's dyno :thumbsup: .

We are also trying to coordinate the cruise to Red Brick Pizza on this day, but that will determined later.

What's the schedule for the day?

Meet time?

Anything else planned? - metioned pizza cruise initially.

Might increase the response if people know what is planned for the day. :)

blk04cobra1
05-07-2006, 08:33 PM
Based on the response, im not exactly sure yet...i'll call Red Brick Pizza tomorrow and see if we can square something away with them...

Tentative schedule--

Dyno Day--9am-4pm
Cruise to Red Brick Pizza--4pm-until?

It all depends on how many are going to need tunes or want to dyno :thumbsup: . If you are looking for a tune, please contact Dan@Pro-Dyno, from the looks of it, there should be enough time to accomodate a few tunes.

Yup, and the only time mine has been undriveable was due to a defective alternator. Other then that it has been ready for me to drive everytime I get in and turn the key. :D :spoke:


I want to get it paid off first and should have that done by the end of this year so there will probably be several Cobra goodies under the christmas tree in '07. :D

Damn... that was C-O-L-D B-L-O-O-D-E-D :p:p

At least my alternator hasn't gone bad yet :D We just won't mention the rear-end that's been apart three times now or the transmission that's out for the second time in six months :( I knew I should have replaced that damn TOB retainer sleeve when I had it apart the first time ;)

Mikey thanks for the offer... I believe *if* I need a ride the "old man with the all aluminum 427" can give me a lift :p

Me and Ford V-8 alternators don't seem to get along very well (went through 3 of them on my Tbird). I know once I start I'll get bit by the mod bug so who knows what will happen then.

I hope you get yours back up and running again soon. :thumbsup:

Official change:



this is now a "tuning" day, please call Dan and set up a time to get on the dyno. Following the tunes, anyone who wishes to get on the dyno for some pulls will be able too, but tunes come first. this change is occuring b/c it seems there are more needing a tune, than just a dyno run :thumbsup:

Hey Torrey, can you PM me directions on how to get there?? Thanks :thumbsup:
PM Sent....here are some general directions...

From Gastonia:

Take I-485 towards Concord...get off at the Independence/Hwy 74 exit (go towards Monroe). At the 5th stop light (approx. 4 miles), make a U-turn (there will be a BP on the right and shady used car lot of the left). Make your first right in to Sun Valley Industrial Complex. Once inside, make your first left and you'll see the cars parked out front :thumbsup: .

From Concord:

Take I-485 towards Rock Hill...get off at the Independence/Hwy 74 exit (go towards Monroe). At the 5th stop light (approx. 4 miles), make a U-turn (there will be a BP on the right and shady used car lot of the left). Make your first right in to Sun Valley Industrial Complex. Once inside, make your first left and you'll see the cars parked out front :thumbsup: .

From Charlotte:

Once you cross over I-485 on Independence towards Monroe, just follow the last few steps above ;)

Ditto for me too! Thanks to Corey and the crew of MM Performance for putting in my plugs and fighting my serpentine belt on after I gave them the wrong one to start with! (SORRY GUYS!!!) Also MM Performance supplied Pizza, drinks and a the space for the dyno.

Thanks Dan from PRO DYNO. Great job of tuning my car!! My new numbers are in my signature!!! Dan got me 53 more RWHP and 16 rwtq SAE at peak from my old numbers. The air fuel is a modest 11.5 to 1 so the engine should be safe. We were having a little fuel issue so we set the rev limiter at 6500rpms until we get it worked out. All in all I'm very pleased with how the day went! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Dan got even with him though when he told him to go do the test drive and had it set in valet mode. :D
