    Thanks for your help.

    I just wanted to thank you all for the help you gave me at this reunion. I received a lot of good car advice. This was the first time I dyno’ed. I ran 266.9/ 281.2. With your help and advice, I believe there is more on tap. I’ll work on it over the winter and keep you updated. I hope next year we can do dyno runs again.

    Now that was what the dyno was for. I have never seen so many people working on a car and getting the bugs out.

    Yeah you got alot more power on that car just waiting to put it on the ground. Way to go!
    Time to clean up the engine bay!

    You'll have some competition for most improved next year - I got a whopping 159HP @ 13PSI..... This was my first time ever on a dyno, but I'm hooked! Time to turn up the wick

    Sounds like a winner to me. Something for me to look forward to!

    Joe, I'm used to golfers sandbagging on me, but SVOs' now?!?! Besides, you have to be in the new car category now!

    I've gotta be honest, I was proud to be picked to rep the North in the auto-x, but knowing the competition, I didn't get much sleep Sat night!

    N vs. S dyno 06 - we'll see. It's a looong drive back up north (I still have to do the last 200 miles later today)!

    Gator will have throw the Clown at 'em then!

    I won't be there in 06 due to the taxpayers are paying for a 7 month spree to the Arabian Gulf, but I will do my derndest to be there for '07.

    If I WERE to represent one side, who would it be? I ask because I am FROM Illinois, but live in Virginia.

    Navy -- you represent who you want to represent..

    Henson -- it was great to meet you. You weren't exactly what I was expecting (for some reason, I thought your avatar was a self pic :p)

    Thank goodness it wasn't. I thought the same thing. I had a difficult time looking at the avatar and thinking that the same guy makes carbon fiber race car parts! (Unless the fumes got to him)
