Anyone from the Indy area making the drive to Crawfordsville tomorrow for the dyno event? I am planning to head out around 7am.

Any car washes near there that can be used to self-spray booth the cars?

I went last year and dynoed my stock LT-1 @ 271hp & 306ftlbtq.
I'm not going tomorrow, because I want to finish mods and have it dyno-tuned then. Maybe next year...or the next.

Let us know how you do.

The shop in Crawfordsville is a great shop. Ron knows what he is doing with a dyno.
Tweaked my 99 A-4 to 336.0 RWHP @ 5300rpm. & 361.3 RWTQ @ 3800 rpm. You can not buy HP cheaper. I gained 37 hp & 44 # tq at the wheels. An unbelievable difference in driving the car.
I recommend Ron for ANYONE who wants to increase HP & tq, more efficient running car.

I just wanted the basic dyno to see what it was doing. I have no plans to tune this car.

I had plan to go but didn't get off work until noon. I was wanting to see what the headers and the new nitrous set up would do. I did 310hp & 340tq last year.

Hey, Jonny. What NO2 system did you get? Been to the track with it? What kind of times are you running now?

Its a Barry Grant/Nitrous Works LT1 system 125hp jets with Nitrous Outlet controller. Have not been to the track yet but I'll let you know. With some luck I'll get to the 1/8 track Friday.

Daaang!!! It sounds like you are going skip pass the 12s and go straight to the 11s.
If you keep it up, you're going to need that solid axle you were talking about.
