I have been working on a deal between Gullo Ford (an SVT dealer in north Houston/Conroe with a "NEW" Mustang Dyno) and Rick/Linn with Amazon Racing. The Service Manager at Gullo Ford (a racing enthusiast) and Rick are both interested in this event and if we have enough interest in the area for a Saturday and Sunday Dyno Day, we can bring Rick to Houston.

Rick can do about 8 tunes per day......depending on what the vehicle requires......if you are interested.....chime in.

If there is substantial interest the two parties will finalize the pricing and dates......right now it looks like mid to late April.

We will keep Spring Nationals and Fun Ford Weekend in mind when determining the date.

Thanks for posting this John. A friend of mine had his '04 dyno'd there and it was a decent dynometer. Can't remember what kind, but he was happy with the numbers, and I know Gullo runs a good dealership.

I know the club would definately be interested...maybe we can establish a relationship with Gullo and possibly get a car show there sometime. Sign me up for the dyno as I know I want to see what mine puts down with the new mods. :thumbsup:

John, thanks for posting this as Mike said.

Do they only want people signing up for a custom tune? or are they wanting to do regular dyno pulls and then the custom tunes? Also, is there a price range in mind?

Once again thanks for looking into this.

Yes, on the SVTP Focus boards there is much talk about Rick being a good SVTF tuner. I would be very interested.

You will have to check with Chris Dangerfield at Gullo to see if he is offering special pricing....their current prices outside of this deal are:

3 pulls for $100 or $200 an hour

I do not know Ricks pricing.....but you can contact Linn at www.amazonracing.com (http://www.amazonracing.com)

I have heard he has tuned around 1700 Cobra's

Linn....we may have to move the date to May.....will that be okay? I have not been able to confirm an April date with Chris yet.

$200 an hour


Damn, I need to learn how to run a dyno :eek:

So, what's the average time to tune a car with basic mods (h pipe, aftercat, CAI)?
