I'll make a prediction. Pdxhak and myself will be there, and no other 8's will show. Come on, prove me wrong!

I might be able to make this. $40 for 3 pulls you cant beat that.

Never mind - I see they will not make a list until the day of the meet. I think I will come down to see how my decarbing has improved things.

I plan to dyno my car. Last time it was on the dyno the shop had issues with my car so I'm thinking the numbers were not correct. Also I have new OE coils and plugs.

I am hoping Aipex8 puts his car on the dyno as well because he has a reman from the place sleepy-z works at.

If I head down friday come out to PIR and run your car with me. You can get a 99% accurate hp number by a pass down the strip. Than compare it with the dyno. I want to see if the added K&N and straight pipe give me 1-2 MPH extra. Not like thats a big deal but its better than losing MPH.

I'm not really into drag racing and not sure how well my car would hook up. But maybe I will run just 1 or 2 times just to see.

Well if I make it out there and its not pissing rain than I can help you out. Dumping the clutch at 9krpm wont do you any good

It is $35 +$10 PIR registration fee if you haven't already figured that out.

Its also a lot cheaper than doing a few dyno pulls to get your HP rating. If your not paying someone to tune your car thats the best way to find your HP. Plus its a lot more fun. Be amazing if it was like last time I was down there. 35+ passes before I headed out at 9pm. Was so worth the money. My tires didnt think so

I'm 50/50 since my car is all torn apart right now... But, if it is real BBQ and there are rotaries involved, and if I can get a slot on the dyno...

Lots of if's for me it seems.

If I make it, I will bring my compression testers with me in case somebody wants to use them.
