    Damn John, great idea!!!! I never thought of that, thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm doing the 5th and 6th gear conversion along with doing a cryo treatment and surfacing, polishing the slides and changing the shift forks from plastic to bronze.

    I've sent this offer to Joe, and I'll extend this to everyone else too. I have a dyno slot reserved for my car at 4pm on that day. If anyone has a car that will make more than 500whp or you haven't dyno'd after power adding mods, you are welcome to have my dyno spot. My car should be on the dyno about two weeks before this show when it's getting tuned and my dyno will be purely to entertain everyone at the show.

    So if you have some big numbers (Joe, Mike, etc)...please feel free to represent vipers at the meet.

    Sounds badass Joe...I hope my car doesn't get sucked into one of your turbos on the next run!

    No need to do that. I will collect the $3 either at our pre-meet gathering spot or at the actual meet itself. It really depends on if I need to be at the meet REALLY early to make sure the VCA can get in without waiting forever in traffic.

    Quick update - I have reserved 10 spots for us at the meet. If needed, I can reserve more spaces up until April 22nd.

    It looks like the VCA will have a chance to beat the traffic and get an early entry time, so I will provide more updates on that as they come.

    Okay, done. Unreel (and sorry I remember you but not your name) - you want that dyno spot?


    For everyone else, I will see what I can do about finding a spot in Bowie to meet up. Anyone have any ideas?

    Ok, meeting time is 11 am, and we will roll into the lot around 11:15! If it seems too early, don't worry. Other clubs will be getting there, things will be happening, etc.

    Hey John,

    Is it okay if we have friends roll with us? I've got a couple of friends who are not part of any club but want to attend the event too. Is it okay if they cruise in with us?

    The event starts at noon, and clubs that reserve spaces are being let in early. It is possible everyone else will be turned away before noon. I'll see what I can find out.

    Weather is starting to look...interesting. Guess we'll keep an eye on it. The event is rain or shine.

    No, I don't think they will do that. Not unless there is lightning during the meet or something.

    Edit: Weather report looks clearer now.

    I know some guys on the forum got a video of my Dyno run, but here's one that popped up on youtube already. First time having my car on the Dyno ever and I was just glad the car did not break!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYzbc5oRod8

    And just in case you're interested, 448 hp, 464 tq without a tune. Not bad I'd say!

    Yeah I expect your car to pop up on YouTube several times over the next few days. Good numbers for no tune!

    DaDood, that's about what a bone stock Gen 3 should put to the wheels. These cars are pretty efficient, usually with only 12-13% parasitic driveline loss. Noting your sig, I think it shows that exhaust mods alone (without a tune) really won't do much except maybe better sound and less heat in the cabin. Show that at least power-wise, the stock exhaust flows pretty well on these cars.

    Still, good run! I go to alot of dyno days (for years, with my truck club). Always nice when nothing blows up! So, what was the highest HP Viper there today?

    P.S. - Nice to see the Viper Black 'verts represented!

    Hey, did anyone else become a lobster after yesterday? 6 hours in the sun, no sunblock or hat and I shaved my head that morning. Hurtin' today!

    Hey Swexlin, Yeah, I did the exhaust for pretty much sound only. The car is plenty fast for me right now so I'm not worried about making more hp. Was a fun event though!

    I found a second video online already saying "The Viper got around 800 hp!". I'm going to continue spreading that rumor

    Yep, I'm a lobster too. Gotta stop wearing red shirts to these things. It keeps me from realizing how burnt I am.

    Lots of pics taken of your car after it went on the dyno.

    We rolled into the meet with 7 of us, and an 8th came later on in the show.

    As for the meet itself, I have no idea. Certainly more than 1,000. It filled up the entire stadium lot and for awhile more came in as others were leaving.

    I felt bad not staying with the group more, but I saw someone I knew every five seconds. Hope you guys had a good time.

    Edit: Mike, I told you I'd give you that pic my buddy took. Here it is.
