Yesterday I attended the NORCAL SAAC GTG at Performance Art in Gilroy CA.
Perf. Art is a very high tech mod shop specializing in custom alignment, suspensions, wheels, tires, body kits, SCs and installs. This shop is incredible. It reminds me of an operating room. Extremely clean and organized.
For this GTG, they arranged to have Evan and Dennis Mathews from Ed's Speed Shop to set up their Dyno Dynamics chassis dyno. Three pulls for $65.00. I had not had my car dyno'd since I installed the new clutch, fuel rails and line and the KR muffs. I got to go first and the results are pretty impressive.
511.2 rwhp / 503.8 ftlb trq.!
Got to see a few other really cool cars get Dyno'd - 2 Ford GTs, both at 750 rwhp and Tom Robinson's beatiful black GT500 TVS/Evo tune vert - 634 RWHP!
Awesome results Michael! Congrats on the numbers and your beautiful car.
