Am beginning to think my engine will NOT be dyno'd this year.
Although I did schedule my car to be chassis certified by the NHRA tech dude on April 12th. Also on that day, IF the engine is IN the car, and I pass my physical, (which I take this thursday), I may be able to attempt my license passes also.
(gonna kinda suck if engine doesn't get dyno'd tho)......... (test n tune, etc, etc).
In either case, I'm STILL excited.

Yeah, that's the sucky part of it. One pass at a time.
Being as it MIGHT pass tech, and MIGHT pass the NHRA chassis cert that day, I already asked, and I MIGHT be able to make license passes that same day.
Well, the car MIGHT be in enough of a state of tune to turn 9.99's. Who knows.
That's the neat thing about dyno'ing the engine. You KNOW where the power is, and you KNOW it's got a safe tune before you even flog it.

Just remember, it's not time to panic unless you feel a hand on both of your shoulders during this procedure! Not that there's anything wrong with that!!

I didn't have my Dr. do the poke & stroke test, still didn't have a problem with that... Nice thing about getting a license, you don't have to do the blindfold test or test runs again Hope ya pass

While the Dr. was giving his patient a prostate exam, the patient said, hey doc, do you mind taking off your ring. Doc says ring, hell that's my watch!
