Default Mid-Atlantic Dyno Day! Saturday Nov. 10th

Hey guys, anyone in the Mid-Atlantic area interested in having their cars dyno'd, then this is for you!

So, we're shooting for Saturday November 10th! I need at least 8 people to commit w/a max of say 15. (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, 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 $1000.00, but he will offer a show special of $750.00.

The new 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! Anyway, let me know your thoughts, and if you think this is a good date/idea, or if you think we need more time...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 2 Dyno Meets have been a blast!

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 22 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

Thanx, Stan

Alright, there's the first name up, let's add to the list and keep it going...we only have 2 weeks! Remember, the only way to secure a spot for sure is to add your name to the list. I can't guarantee a spot for you if your name is not on the list! I'm probably going to post this over on E46Fanatics as well, so I'll keep a running updated list on both sites.

Thanks for organizing this Stan Just my luck that I need to be in NJ () that day. Definitely not happy on missing this one. On the bright side, my trip to NJ involves me doing 4 laps in a 430.

I can’t think of another automobile that does so many things so well—and in such a right-sized package. If you put an F1 car and a premium sedan in a blender, the M3 would be the cocktail that pours out. Mmmm, nothing else like it. A toast then: To the BMW M3, the greatest all-around car in the world.

Well, if you can't be there, that sounds like a pretty good reason to me! How about the following Saturday? I'm only giving 2 wks notice for this, and I realize that not everyone will be able to make it, regardless of which weekend I schedule it for...but I'll try to accommodate everyone as much as possible, if one weekend is better than the other for the majority of folks. Frank is pretty flexible as well!

Can he tune F/I'd M3s? If so, is it possible to pre-pay the $550 for the custom tune (with the initial dyno pull absorbed into the cost) if I am not able to make it for that day?

Sounds like a plan. The following Saturday (November 10) is good for me. If this happens on that day-dibs on being on the list right after azn101.

Appreciate you leading the pack on organizing this bro.

I'll let you know, waiting to hear back from azn101 to see if the following Sat works for him...we're still early enough that I can change the date.
