I like to spend my time behind the wheel or behind the camera instead of the computer.
Turned over 188K miles last week!

I am in.
1/23 or later would be better, gives me time to save for for more mods prior to tune.

Hi checkers. How is everything going? Not sure if you remember me. I had the tune day in San Jose 2 years ago.

Anyway, this sounds interesting. I tried to set up another tune day here earlier this year but with the way the economy was crashing and my savings drying to the last dollar I thought twice about having it.

However, things are a little better now with work and the finances. So, I am in on that Saturday. I also need to have my 440 injectors put in since I'm still running stock with all the upgrades I have.

Haha, yeah I drove all the way from VA just for a tune! .. that was the joke anyway when Jan was tuning my car. The full story is that I did a cross country road trip and back for my 30th birthday and LA was one of my stops so I thought I'd get a tune. Anyways, it was worth it because it pulled all my mods together. If you live in CA, and your thinking about it, drive down and get souped up!

Sounds awesome, but i think ill hold off until i get my pulley installed, and then work out getting an intake, exhaust, and injectors. (how much are Jan's 440's?) I'm definitely in next time, or i might just roll down there.

Ok heres whats going on so far. It will be on 1/23 in Concord at Left Coast Diesel they have a web site. They will have someone on hand to do some installs if needed. I have ordered so far 2 sets of 440 injectors and a set of brisk plugs for the people that said they needed them.



There are a couple more that said they are insterested, but haven't made up their mind. If your name is on the list please make sure you can make it and let me know one way or the other ASAP. If we have enough people Jan will stay over till Sunday.
Thanks

I'm definitely interested but need to double check my schedule with the rest of the family.

So do we each pay for the tune plus 1 hour of dyno time? I don't really expect that each car will need 1 hour, so can we split the costs of the dyno time?
