CA Dyno Day

FYI, to those who live around here, roadwarrior687 is organizing a dyno day at:

17122 Gothard St
Huntington Beach, CA 92647
(714)841-2433
http://www.autowaveinc.com/Dyno.htm

This is the shop that BMW/Porsche tuner BMS uses to test and baseline their cars. In fact Jack had his beast wagon dynoed there. The price is $65.00 (good price!) for a few pulls figuring ~30mins per car. There is a minimum of 10 cars with a maximum of 20 cars for the dyno day. They will also give Air\Fuel graphs. If we get people to commit, but then get no shows and have less than 10 cars, the $65.00 price will go up per car. Please be aware this is a Dyno Dynamics dyno, not dynojet or mustang dyno. Being the novice I am, I can't speak to the differences. If BMS likes to use them, good enough for me! I will be sure everyone gets a softcopy of their dyno run.

Of course, *everyone* can show up to make this sort of a meet event as well. Even if you don't get your car dynoed, there are amazing sites and sounds when an E39 hits 100 mph+ on two huge rolling pins!

I'm in. I've been wanting to get my Dinan S1 dynoed.

Is it open to non BMW cars? I might be able to get two of my friends out there as well (a mini couper S and a Magnum SRT8).

What do I need to do to sign up? Do I need to put my name on the list on bimmerfest.com.

As far as I know it's open to all, but since it's limited to 20 cars, I think non-BMWs may be bumped if there are 20 BMWs that want in - but thta's just my best guess. Follow the bimmerfest link and post there.

This looks good. I have the day open. Do you know if they will be able to run the car up to 150mph or more? I am a novice when it comes to this, but from what little I have read in order to have an accurate reading, its best to use 5th or 6th and run it out?

Any ideas? I am most likely in anyway.

I don't know specifically, but if BMS trusts them to be accurate, I'm inclined to give them benifit of the doubt. Chris is really picky about dynos, and operators, as results can change quite a bit depending on what dyno is used and how it's set up. This one should be a lot more accurate than the Dynomax or Mustang as it's actually measuring torque from the wheels via electric current rather than interpolating torque from a large rotating mass. Or something like that
