DYNO DAY AT KD ROTARY
Well some of the boys decided to head up to KD Rotary in Nazareth, Pennsylvania for some of Dave Barringers tuning magic and to put their cars up on the dyno for some power pulls. After a brief interlude with the Maryland State Police constabulary (one look at Paul Ober and they sent us on our way) and snow we saw nearing our destination (not fun at all on track tires!) we arrived at KD after the 3 hour drive. In attendance were Chris Regan, Paul Ober, Ed Hahn, and, Charles Saftner. The day was a good one in that no one broke anything. HP numbers were good and everyone seemed to be happy. Some glitches with the PFS PMC in Chris's car arose and Ed's new single turbo monster was having some ignition breakup so wasn't able to get good HP numbers above 4500 rpm. Shame as we all wanted to see what it could to...maybe next time.

He won't like it but a pic of
