Dyno day falkland performance centre , Glenrothes

Spoke to falkland performance today about fitting my exhaust when it arrives and we got on to the subject of dyno's

It's normally £40+vat per car but he said if we can get 10+ there will be a discount which will increase if we have 20+

He never gave a hard and fast price but if I can get enough interest I can go back to him to try and arrange a deal !

Thinking about a Saturday morning in April and just looking for interest just now

Anyone ??

I work every 2nd Saturday morning, so depending which Saturday it was held on, I'd maybe pop along for a nosey.

I wouldn't be wanting to dyno my car as I have not carried out any mods and not really that bothered what bhp it has from stock.

Wouldn't mind getting the suspension sorted with either a set of Eibach Pro Springs and FRS with rear shims or go the whole hog and get a set of coilovers.
Will upgrade the front discs and pads when the brake pads need replaced. I think the standard brakes are crap, as I've had a few squeaky arse moments due to them fading too easily either that or it's me being a little bit over enthusiastic.

Just got other things that have to take priority before I can spend cash on the car at the moment.

Didn't have any planned but I just spent 800 quid in the last 2 days
Fitted my racing suction kit today and it's awesome , when you hear it on the meet you will want one and my exhaust should be here in 10 days time
