--- Michigan All Diesel Mid-Winter Dyno Day ---

Michigan Diesels it's time to hit the rollers! Get the those Christmas presents you bought yourself installed and let's put them to the test!

Where: Motor City Steel in Commerce, MI (Southeast Michigan)
Welcome to Motor City Steel

When: Saturday, January 19th Doors open at 9am - ???

Cost: $75 per truck

Who's Invited: EVERYONE! Let's have some fun!

So far I told them we would roughly have 20 trucks (just threw a number out). I haven't been to their shop since they moved, but they said they have an area for us to hang out indoors during this event. I plan to stop by the shop this week to check it out.

They have 12 foot doors so height will hopefully not be a problem. Additionally, they have Run Duallies on their Dyno with no issues, but I requested an exact width limitation. I also warned them about excessive smoke and they said they had 3 and 4 in. hoses... I suggested they get bigger hoses. Their only expressed concern was smoke control for stacks (anyone have hoses layin around?).

I'm relatively new to this site and I haven't met any members here.... this would be a great michigan meet and greet!!!!!

So who's game???

ps. I threw this together in 4 days so please be patient. And by all means i'm open to suggestions/concerns/help with food? drinks? heaters? etc.

I'm only back in michigan for a few more weeks, so I thought i would try to get some michigan diesels together! ... let me know when you are coming for sure. I got this posted on other sites so I'll be posting the number of trucks confirmed as the event gets closer.

What's up all? I originally posted in a "regional - eastern" thread but i think it may get more views here.... I have this posted on other diesel sites and I would love to all brands represented, so here I am. I've confirmed roughly 15 trucks (all ford & GM so far) to dyno and more to just hang out.

I'll be there. Mustang dynos usually run higher peak numbers than normal. This could get interesting....
