    Anything I should know before... DYNO?

    I'm going to take my car to get dynoed for the first time...I've never been to one... but I have seen a few exhibition ones at the track...anyways... anything I should know about it...things I shouldn't do and such?

    btw...it's just to get a solid baseline run... in the heat of summer...I'll probably go in the nice 80 deegree winter later on the year... LOL

    Oil only has 1Kmiles on it... and everything else checks out exept for a minor leak...

    would the shitty tires hurt at all?

    That 1st time is an awesome feeling. You get a rush when he hammers down on it. Enjoy. We always had a Dyno Day where we had about 20 people and got a really good deal for two pulls.

    I think these guys charge $20 for 4 passes...but I'mma try to see if it's posible to just do 2... for less price... and also gonna see if I can take my friend and his Downpipe/Exhaust only Supra TT...which has never seen a dyno either

    $20 for 4 is dirt cheap. Best we got was $35 for 2. Pay the $20 and just do 2 if you want. Four is alot.

    yeah...it's cheap cause it's down in the Hillbilly Country... I'm guessing people go there alot so they get to run it cheaper...

    Ear plugs if your car is loud and being dynoed inside a building. You dyno in drive, not OD as well.
