our baySHO taurus SHO club had a dyno day at ATP. all
the cars that were on the level of javad's were, of
course, broken. gotta love ford ;-)

great place though. maybe not enough ventilation
inside the shop for the dyno.

you guys should do a bay area audi dyno day. i know we
had lots of fun and you get to learn a lot about your
car. especially if it's not running right.

i think Su quoted us $50 for 3 pulls, 5 minutes
between pulls.

see ya,
