    Hi Guys,

    Trying to drum up some interest in getting a lot of intersting cars scheduled to dyno at our local Porsche-Club's yearly dyno event. This year, we'll be conducting this at Colvin Automotive (home of Overhaul'n's Lance Armstrong's Goat), in Austin, Texas (2715 Hancock).

    I'll have about 15-20 Porsche's scheduled to dyno, and a few Ferreri's as well already, but would love to schedule a few more to make it as interesting as possible. PM me or email (better) if you think you can join us.

    Porschesolutions@gmail.com

    Thanks! Mark HCR-PCA '05-06 Dyno-Day Coordinator, Membership co-Chair

    Bars, Music, Food, & Austin! It maybe worth the drive, load up the mountain bike to enjoy the many trails the hill country has to offer. I haven't been down there in a while.

    Now, if only I can find someone's couch to crash on?

    Hmmmm..... ;)

    Hey Mark:

    I may be interested in going to blow out the cobwebs on my car (hasn't been driven in 6 months) and now that Norwoods installed to Lambda package on the Motec. Maybe you and Mark can show me how to trim out the extra fat at low RPMs and load, my eyes burn from the fumes at idle.. ;)

    Sorry to hear about your fall out with the other Mark... I don't think I'll be moving away from Motec any time soon especially after spending the money to enable the Lambda function... :)

    Anyone else wanna see how your stallion is tuned? Tom's going for custom ECU profile with the result of his Full-tubi dyno (well, Tubi headers, high-flow cats, & modified Mille Millia exhaust.

    Any 550's or such wanna put the power to the rollers??

    lots of info on the www.hcrpca.org website: Dyno-time starts at 9am, but have plenty of room left for extra cars after 1pm or so.

    Come dyno if you can!

    Mark, are you commercially involved with this Dyno? You mostly just post to this thread every couple weeks. Sorry if not true.
