As you all know, Washington is have a little get together next month.

I'm also trying to get a Dyno day going ... no date has been set yet, but I'm trying to see if we can get the Dyno at the meet and combine it into one. Nothing final .. just some planning so far ...

What I want to know is who from SK would be willing to come? Doesn't need to be a Kia. I have a '68 GTO and a '65 Buick GSX coming too. any Import is welcome, so if you have some friends in the area (Tacoma, WA)and would like to really know what their pulling ... this is it.

We have 12 cars so far ... $35 for two pulls. Dyno is a Mustang MD-550-P. P means portable, and it can measure, accurately ... over 1200hp.

Dyno site: http://www.mustangdyne.com/portable.htm

I'll have more info tomorrow.

Let me know. I would like to dyno my 07 Elantra to see what it does.

What is the capacity of the dyno? I MIGHT bring the truck along and dyno it as well.

Let me know the date and time.

The dyno day is on for the 13th of October at Fairlady Motors(see below). First pull is around 9:00. Dyno is capable of 1000+ hp and is 2 wheel only. $35 for two pulls. A/F hook up is available, but you need to deal with the owner, Doug Smith, on that.

What is the "TRUCK"?

The truck is a modified 1968 Chev shortbed pickup. I built it from thr ground up using a stock body (fenders, cab and bed) but everything else is custom. 572 CI big block, Allisson trans, custom Dana 60 rear end, custom frame and suspension setup.

dude ... you need to bring that .... please ...

I have some guy with an Eclipse who thinks he'll be king that day. Being beaten by some Chevy will be sweet ...

So where in Tacoma are you located ... maybe we could hook up this weekend ... do Starbucks or something.

If you know where PLU is, my house is walking distance (block and a half away.)

The truck is the shop truck. I keep it there rather than my house because 1. I am only allowed 1 vehicle due to the complex rules and 2, it could get stolen. My only concern is the dyno max reading. You said over 1,000 hp. How much over is it? The 572 has a supercharger and I don't want to break something. I did that twice already with it.

The Eclipse engines are fairly weak. Maybe good for 180 hp at the wheels.

Well ... I think he can take at least 1200whp ... I'll find out Monday.

The eclipse is pushing 370whp ...

I graduated from Curtis, and lived off of 33rd and Crystal Springs ...

My truck can do over that (370).

When did you graduate from Curtis?

EDIT:

There is going to be a J2 Elantra and a LC Accent with a couple Tibs coming. Brian (Sharkrocket) posted something about this on NT.com.

The J2 is the Elantra from 1997-2000. Nick, a former student of mine owns the car, a 1997 J2 with a 5 speed. He is on HP.com a lot.

Floyd has the 2003 LC Accent and sharkrocket has a 2004 GK 4 cyl 5 speed that was tricked out originally by Titus Will Hyundai. His wife also has a 04 GK 4 cyl 5 speed as well.

Does the Accent have a Beta II? I hear that is a nice swap ...

I teach with the Tacoma Schools. This year I am at Remann Hall, where I taught about 7 years ago. I was at Foss where Nick went to school, teaching auto. So far this year (this month) I have seen 120 kids coming and going in my pod. The facility sees around 5,000 kids per year. A lot of repeats.

The Accent has a 1.6 Alpha 4 cyl motor. The beta swap is a great swap for the car.

Engine can be dynoed before install. Also the hub dyno (which connects the machine directly to the wheel hub) can give you different results than with the tire roller.

He got his hard drive, but he needs to reload everything before the vid compilation takes place. I asked him on HP.com about the ETA of it.

Depended on the car. My A/T equipped stock HD made 102 hp/103 tq, but the power curves were smooth and where they are supposed to be on a dyno graph. However the numbers are low.

And this time I'll arrange a video guy to get some good footage.

I am waiting on Floyd.
