As long as they are properly equipped to handle Diesel's... MA crew will roll in.

I'm 0 for 5 on indoor Mustang Dyno's so far.... Everyone of them has broken or can not get tach signal.

We're planning on meeting up at a breakfast joint beforehand. Whether thats Cracker Barrel, Dennys, Bob Evans or a mom-n-pop place is still up in the air. C.A.P. says he knows of a great place, but hasn't told anyone what it is yet.

As for the evening, scuttlebutt is that we may be going to CJ's Brewery to celebrate and talk diesel!

Would be great to finally meet you, Vaz!

stopped by the shop today. Everything looks good - Plenty of room and parking. Our indoor hangout area will be an emptied 3 car bay.

info update...

-Info on D-max tach signal pending.

-They shop will be driving the trucks on the dyno.

-Width limitation for duallies and Lifted trucks is 103 inches.

-Long Bed Crew Cabs take longer to secure to the dyno, have to strap them down mid-frame.


They dyno list is filling up! I will get an updated number posted asap.

I merged the two threads together, doze. Also moved them to "Events" area.

C.A.P mentioned breakfast at BIFFS in the Dunkin Donuts Plaza on Union Lk Rd and Commerce Rd. Looks like that may be the place.

So you're already putting a dyno list together? If so, how many trucks do they think they'll want to run? How do we sign up?

Also....anyone got a cordless impact for us GM guys, so we can easily remove our splash shields?
