Davis weekend dynos, anybody interested?
 
So I was chatting a bit with my boss and I presented to him the idea of doing a dyno day (or half day) that weekend. The idea went over pretty good with him, especially since our main shop is a Volvo shop (SVS in sacramento). So, I am posting up to see if anybody would be interested in doing this. The price is up in the air currently, but would probably be between $60-80 depending on the amount of people. Furthermore, would we want to do this on Saturday afternoon or on Sunday after the show.

Details so far:
Place
SVS R&D
2550 Tower Avenue
Sacramento, CA 95825

Time
Weekend of Davis
Saturday or Sunday afternoon

What
Baseline dynos (3-4 pulls) on a SuperFlow SF-840

Cost
$60-80 (if you want hourly dyno time, itll cost you)

So, lets get a list going of who's in and what day would be better (Saturday or Sunday)

1. rvolvor - Asher - Saturday afternoon
2.

oh yeah, its an in-ground set-up, so the low cars don't need to worry:

Bump! I normally would say i'm definitely down for it, but want to save funds for using a dyno that will be the same as what I'll be back on a little while later... So, I'm a MAYBE! I think Saturday would be better for me, just in case I want to head up on Sunday after the show.

This all depends on what else is going on, re: autox/drive.

RvolvoR 04-21-2011 12:34 AM

bump, im still down to do this after autox...and the location is more/less right between the autox and davis

Nice. What is that?

gsellstr 04-21-2011 02:26 AM

If the wagon was up for being pushed by then I'd be all over it, but I don't think it will be. I wanna have a couple thousand on it before I start hammering on it.

its an "acura 3.2 cl" rwd powerglide, turbo acura 3.2 motor
http://a3.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphot..._8288712_n.jpg

made 800whp on 20 psi....the motor is built for the 40-50psi range....

That's not a turbo, that's a jet engine. :lol:

I would probably be in for post-autox or sunday after the meet.

klr142 04-21-2011 04:01 PM

Effffffff. Awesome! The tails looked like a CL but I haven't many people modding those, and especially to that extent!

wagonfetish 05-03-2011 01:59 PM

Interested.

Jerd 05-03-2011 02:55 PM

I might be down for this... Depends on how my new holset setup goes.

interested so long as i am not performing impromptu repairs

Jerd 05-03-2011 04:25 PM

question, what gear would i be dynoing in and is there more or less load on the car compared to the street?

You can dyno in whatever gear you want. I suggest fourth to reduce the possibility of any damage to your transmission... ;-)

RvolvoR 05-03-2011 04:39 PM

4th is the norm

Jerd 05-03-2011 05:14 PM

hmm i may do it. I noticed that i have a ton of valve train noise im going to check the lash on all the shims, solve my high rpm stumble, find out why my cars running rich and get the hoslet setup working correctly then i will dyno...

orie 05-03-2011 07:38 PM

In my observation, dynos put more strain on a car than anything other than perhaps a track day. It's like nailing the gas in 4th gear for the entire rpm range while climbing the hill to Tahoe.

Probably the cooling system that takes the most strain.

But, it doesn't take THAT long...

the rollers weigh less than your cars do....but seeing as mark is now going to do a bbq after the auto-x, I think this might be off the books...
