This was project started by our friends at the Boston Area MG Club, who
were kind enough to invite members of the Cape Cod British Car Club
to participate.  So, on  a beautiful, but extremely hot day, ten of us made
the trek to Douglas, Ma., home of NE Dyno & Tuning for great day.

Hats off to Paul Seeberg, President of the BAMGC and John Sansoucy, Owner
of NE Dyno &Tuning for a great day of learning and understanding our cars.

There will be more detail to follow, but these are the pictures that
I took today, before I had to leave.  At that time, nine of the ten cars
had been pull tested at least three times, if not four each by John.

**** Viewers are warned that if they attempt any mechanical repairs or modifications,
or follow procedures referred to here, they do so at their own risk, and no liability will
attach to either myself or NE Dyno & Tuning.****


We all gathered at the shop just before 9:00AM and had coffee
and doughnuts as we waited for the machines to be calibrated.

We had a colorful mix with engines from 4 cylinders to screaming V-8's.

Time for a shameless plug for our sponsor, Paul Seeberg of BAMGC.

I'll start with me first, since I know which pictures are mine and
what the results of my tests were.  This is the beginning, where the
car is connected electronically and tied down via harness to floor
anchors after being driven on to the rollers of the dynamometer.

This is a classic!  Anyone smell something burning?  What dummy left
his emergency brake pulled part way on?  I dunno, not me!

All hooked up and warmed up, so John tells me how he wants to bring
the car up to speed before each pull test.  Probably even more importantly,
John tells me what NOT to do before, during and after the runs. (again)

This is not what I wanted to see nearing red-line.  From 2,800 RPM & up,
at full throttle, my air fuel ratio is out of whack.  Several runs show this to
be consistently true, but this is not a big issue.  John will give me an appointment
to do the tuning right on the dyno, so it will be tweaked as good as it can be.  The
good news is that I did get it to 110MPH at 5,600 RPM before we shut down.

Here is my buddy Charlie's not so stock TR8.

Charlie is getting ready to do a lot of detailing to the car this fall.
His car was a "steal" and it will flat run like a scared rabbitt!

Somehow, along the way, the TR8 did not like Mr. Sears timing light.
Let's just say that when they met, there were literally sparks flying.
We even had a visit from the Lucas Smoke God on this one.

Nice mixture here at 67 MPH.  Charlie has a rich condition like me at higher
speeds, which will have to be tuned out.

Sweet!  He peaked out at 250HP with 250 lbs of torque, before getting
his high end rich condition taken care of.

Thanks, John!
