The lads meet at Turbo Tune in Greensboro, NC. The shop has a chassis dynometer there, he straps your car down on the rollers and you floor it. From that you get a plot of horsepower vs. rpm, and a plot of air/fuel ratio vs. rpm. Last meet cost about $60 for 3 runs.
It's interesting. From that, I found out my Probe is down about 30 horsepower from where it should be. And burning rich at the high RPMS. Worth doing. But I don't want to go back until I'm certain I've found the missing hp, and so far I don't think I have.

Last dyno we had several Probes, and a Volvo 850 Turbo. Then we watched someone else run a Mustang.
If you want to come, the more the merrier. Just get connected with Fozzie. He seems to be the organizer.
