DPR Dyno Day 1999

Co-sponsored By: Weld Racing, Mothers, 76 Fuel, Redline Oil, and MSD

mvc-005s.jpg (40388 bytes) is pleased to announce that DPR Dyno Day 1999 was a huge success! There were over 40 SR20DE-powered vehicles, most of which had a chance to get dyno'd for a donation of only $15 (if the person could afford it).

People who showed up were treated to donuts and coffee for breakfast, while soda and pizza (and plenty of it!) were provided for lunch. Throughout the day, the knowledgeable DPR staff provided tours of the facilities, showing the shop where they do their headwork and answering various questions.

Of course, besides seeing the facilities, people wanted to see some dyno numbers! The DPR staff was able to get about 3 cars on the dyno per hour, and everyone who wanted to get dyno'd was able to. It was quite a blast hearing so many SR20DE's in all stages of modification screaming at 7500 rpm in a garage! There were also a few GA16DE owners that were able to get on the dyno, as well.

At the end of the day, there was a raffle in which DPR gave away over $1600 in headwork gift certificates, as well as gift certificates for race gas and Mothers products!

All in all, it was a terrific event. Everyone had a great time, and really appreciates the support that DPR and it's co-sponsors have provided. If you missed it this time, be sure to make the next one!
