Default 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.
3.
4.
5.
6.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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.
