West Chester PA Area SAAB Dyno Day Feeler

Check out the pics and more to Come!!! All in all a great day... even though I chickened out getting on the dyno after I spoke to andy and he recommended against it...

Some pretty impressive runs by SPG Project and DeLorean ( even though tthe dyno could not deal with D's amazing tourque curve!!!)

Eight cars hit the dyno and about 10 or so more people showed up to talk Saab,,, check out the update!!!


Everything is confirmed, starting at 9 AM $60 for up to three pulls. I'll be there bright and early with DD and Coffee. I think the shop is spring for some food and drinks. They are suprised by all the Saabs coming out, even if you aren't going to dyno, stop by for some Saab talk....

I know i have seen a lot of posters from the West Chester Pa area on here. I have been talking with the Guys at Xotic Motorsports about holding a SAAB only Dyno Day Sat or Sun sometime early March Sat March 3. They are over in Cochranville, about 10-15 minutes from West Chester ( depending on how well your car can take the twisites) Great time of year to get your Baseline before the springtime mods underway!



I am hoping to get about 10 cars ( I do not have a minimum yet so let's see how many of us there are before we open it up to other makes) Looks like 65-75 a car depending on the number.



If you might be interested post up with best date and let's see how it goes.

for $65, I'd be in for sure. $75 is getting to be a bit on the high side, but I'd probably still come. I'd probably bring the 900 to this one though

65 it is if we get five cars. If we get ten it will be 60...

So far interested only:

SPG
Delorean
Jay Jay ( from SaabCentral)
Jssaab

Saturday March 3 so far...

If this works out I'll buy Pizza and a case of beer ( if we're allowed)

FYI, this date conflicts with the WaSaab dyno day. Or darn close to it.

We have 5 tentatives, looks like there is enough interest. ( I just posted this) I will book the date with the shop. I will find out when I need commitments ( meaning $$ by paypal) to secure the shop. If we don't have enough people by the drop dead date I will return all $$.

Hey I don't want anyone bailing on the WSAAB D Day, sorry bout that I never saw a final date and its a bit far for us Philly guys. We only need 5 cars and if we get 10 there's enough $ left over for a beer or two.

Let me know if this is causing problems OK?

Lets go somewhere after the dyno and get dinner or something along those lines. Thats usually a good way to cap off saab meets.

Update....

I will post times once I confirm I will be shooting to start 9 AM ( I will be there to set everything up and pay ( since I am Local) and I hope to get people rolling in every half hour or so. To give enough time for the farther cars to make it, anyone local try to pick an earlier time if you can.

There is much interest to make Pizza and beer maybe nearby after we are all done ( like 2:30 maybe once i get the time estimates from the shop) or dinner.

Updates as I get them

Linkers
90Spg
Spgproject
Delorean

Centrallers
Kolhoznik
JayJay
9-5 Aero22
Raven18940
Jssaab

Netters
Danno1940
Buck ( bring tools but not the tool truck or a car ) He will be mending any broken cars for a fee. jk

Anyone else who just wants to come by and join us for the meet after feel free!
