Mid-Atlantic Fall Dyno Day, Saturday Oct. 5TH

Hey guys, anyone in the Mid-Atlantic area interested in having their cars dyno'd, or just want to come hang out w/some M brethren...then this is for you!

So, we're shooting for Saturday October 5th (rain date will be the following Saturday, October 12th)! I need at least 8 people to commit w/a max of say 15. (The event will be first come, first serve, no exceptions!) I would like to try to get people to pre-register, so that I can have an idea of how many cars will be there. Please reply to this thread w/your name and year, make, model of your car, and then copy and paste the previous name(s) to update the list so that I can keep a running tab.

Frank Smith, from Tuning Tech FS (vendor tuner@ Mpact), will be conducting the testing. We will concentrate on dyno pulls only (unless time permits), as custom tuning is extremely time consuming. If, however you would like to make an appointment for some custom tuning at a later date, Frank will be more than happy to extend the Mid-Atlantic Dyno Day special rate (read on). I thought that we could start at around 10:00 AM, and run 'til maybe 5:00 or 6:00 PM. He would offer an M3Forum special rate of $65.00 (regularly $85) for 3 pulls with air fuel monitoring, a print out, as well as a professional opinion(s). All M3 (2001-2006) custom tunes on the dyno are usually $750.00, but he would offer a show special of $550.00 (dyno fee absorbed into this price). Newer M3's (E90,92,93) are usually $900.00, but he will offer a show special of $700.00.

The shop is really nice, epoxy painted floors and walls, a really nice office with a 46" Big Screen TV on the wall w/a Play Station 3...and several racing games for customers to play while they wait. This alone is worth the price of admission! Lunch & drinks will be provided! Even if you don't plan on dyno'ing your car, please feel free to show up to hang out with the other club/forum members and share in the activities. The last 4 Dyno Meets have been a blast! This will likely be the last dyno meet at the old location, so come join us, and help us go out in style!!!

Some additional info:

-It's a Dyno Dynamics dyno (typically reads about 10% lower than a Dynojet, but he can 'correct' to Dynojet #'s if we want).
-For those opting for future tunes: This is a true custom tune, so he can maximize your tune (if you so desire), or he can dial in a safe tune if you plan on running, or only have access to, 91 octane fuel.
-He has extracted almost 300whp from almost stock M3's (baselines of 278-282whp, deltas of 15-20hp and 8-15ft. lbs of torque)
-He can Alpha-N tune as well
-He has been tuning cars for over 23+ yrs.
-He can tune other cars besides M3's
-Currently only set up for 2WD

That's all that I can think of for now, but if anyone has any specific requests or needs more info., please contact me.

The new shop name is Tuning Tech FS and it's located here:

4700 Belle Grove Road
Unit 14
Brooklyn Park, MD 21225


Notes:

-Frank will offer 1 free dyno to returning customers, who add more mods later to their car, and then want to come back to see if further tuning is required
-Forms of payment accepted are Visa, Master Card, Paypal, & cash
-Please add your name to the list below

Thanx, Stan

1. Ben/95 M3
2. ???/01 M3

If you do not have a tune on your car, get one from Frank. You won't be dissappointed. I thought I loved the way my M felt before, but after Frank's tune it really came alive. He also did a great job installing my AA Stg Gen 2 SC kit.

My stock E90 was dyno'd at Franks. My car did 335.8 RWHP. The dyno is right on target.
