    VT's Dyno day!

    Fab day!! Albeit a little chilly!!

    All power was measured at the wheels to make it a fairer day for the manual/auto thing and some good results were acheived.

    JoJo made 232 @ the wheels with 300lbs torque which we were quite pleased with considering she is suffering under load (spark plugs we think)

    VT were the perfect hosts and really made the day worthwhile, great food (thanks Dave) and great hospitality along with good conversation and a carpark full of T5's - what more could you ask for!!

    Some of those those cars made for phenomenal entertainment!!

    We will definately have to do this again later on in the year!

    MANY THANKS TO VOLVO TUNING FOR A GREAT DAY!

    A great day, catering was spectacular, and the facilities were fantastic, Volvo tuning really made the effort and it showed, many thanks and well done

    The graphs of all of the cars run today will be up soon on the gallery, but for now, here are my pictures from the day.

    Nice to meet you all, Hamishs car made over 260whp and so did the C70 with a 19T and remap.

    Sounds like a good day, we were at Dastek in Scotland as well, place that build and supply RR's, and the UK HQ for unichip, Jacq has a post up elsewhere about her results.

    She made 260bhp (235 @ wheels) and 305 lb/ft in the T4, and I ran the Rover in an unfinished state at 15/16psi, 250 bhp (229 @ wheels) and 260 lb/ft, making it 225 bhp and 236 lb/ft per tonne

    Excellent pics, I look forward to pouring over the graphs when they go up, sounds like you all had a great day out, thumbs up to VT then for putting it on

    All fast cars long gone. Sensible family BMW 3 series now.
    Still Volvo links though as my wife has a V50 R design sport and a mildly fettled T4

    Although I was only there for 5 hours (half a day for most) I had a great time. Great to put faces to names and shake some hands. Dave's BBQ went down a storm - well done that man! Parking was fun but we managed.

    Thanks to VT for hosting us. I was pretty happy with my 226 at the wheels (not bad for a 129k auto). The only downside is the 300+ quid I've convinced myself to spend on a Miltek exahust after hearing some of the other cars puuuurrrrrinnnnggg ......

    The exhaust will be more than worth it, you need to let that engine breath and the best bit as you have noticed is the noise, mmmm!

    Had an excellent day. Food was great, VT did a superb job, and was good to see so many cars and people there.

    Well happy with Nookie's results - she did 243bhp @ the wheels, and 308lb/ft.. not bad for an old girl

    Glad you all enjoyed the day! Great to see so many people. Next time will be even better - the dyno fan will be much bigger for sure. Apologies for the technical hitch mid way through.

    We enjoyed the day too, so thanks to all of you!

    Mark has a black 2.5 LPT which broke the 200 whp!! (well done). It looks really foxy and I mean that. He has these odd kinda mirror tints which seem to come 1/2 way down the windows. The black looks awesome due to some super wax treatment he has had done on the car (more details please).

    As for me. I had a really fab time. I got in early to help setup. When I arrived I found that Hamish had run out of petrol and was stranded about 1/4 mile short.
    Wobbly Dave to the rescue!

    Got my bit set up. I was really chuffed to see all the Swedish metal on show.

    The staff at VT did us all proud - so my personal huge thanks for letting us christen their dyno! Remember folks - we were there first!!

    I know that initially parking was a problem with so many T5s and I would that everyone especially Carl for being patient.

    Sadly the pressure from the BBQ initially was nowhere near that of turbos and I would thank you all for waiting so patiently. I hope you enjoyed the food.

    I was very happy with how the day went. It was (unlike well-lame-turbo-centre) as much a day out as a dyno day - something sadly lacking from the trip to Yorkshire.

    I was very pleased with how my car ran - a few more bugs to iron out, but I will get there.

    I have a few more shots to come out and hopefully swell the gallery.

    A big thanks to all that came and a big thanks to all the staff at HLM for all their hard work in making the day a big success.

    C U All AT MY BBQ!!

    Yes! Thanks to VT & Dave for an enjoyable day, highlighted the fact I need to bite the bullet and throw some cash at mine as it seems to have some sort of misfire / inefficency when at full boost and over 5000 rpm, but I strongly believe this is down to 8 month old plugs full of crap and no new HT leads for over a year (gulp)

    Time for some well deserved TLC and a service for Amber me thinks

    Still got 231 @ the wheels though so fairly pleased - rather like my school reports used to read...

    thanks to VT & everyone for a quality day (even though i got demoted to the car park with the french sh*te lol). Excellent to me everyone again & a few more new faces (that i'll forget who you are next time we meet sorry ). Watching all those others on the dyno really made me with i could have put BT on there

    Thanks Lance for taking the wheels for me & Guy for the DVD (top notch very impressive mate)

    Hi guys, big thanks for the guys who organised the day to special thanks to Dave for BBQing and entertaining.

    I was very pleased with my jet fighter exhaust note and 266wbhp

    Looking forward to doing it again with the action movie special effects fan - to stop the darn heat soak making my ME7 cry.

    Thanks all, nice to see you again !
