I may have asked, but I'm on my phone, what octane were you running? I'm losing track of whose car had what mods and such...

^^^ This. Next time you roll in there, ask them for 10 mins on the fan before making your runs. It kinda pisses me off that they didn't do that for you. Or anyone else that makes pulls-dyno runs aren't cheap for most people. I'm sure that most of us who saw your mod list and saw your runs knew that something was amiss...

I was impressed with it. It was plenty hot outside and inside the engine compartment. The guy asked me if there was a temperature gauge inside the car, he said when he hooked up the tach sensor to the coil wire he felt that it was hot. I told him we would stop if the temperature light came on. His fan wasn't the greatest either, it was like a gentle breeze. LOL!

I was thinking the same thing, because his numbers about 10HP lower then the avg auto MK3 with those mods

I added a disclaimer to your dyno in the MK3 dyno thread about the heat and no cool down period.

Yeah, I should of done that. But I was late for my appointment with them because of traffic and a bad accident that everyone wanted to pretty much stop and see. They were more concerned about going home at 2pm. Good thing I only paid $20 for those runs, I got a Military Discount. LOL!
