Mike Norris Motorsports & West Orlando Area Car Show-Get Together-?Dyno? Aug 15th
 
Hey All,

I had a couple of 5th Gen owners come by for lunch today talking about parformance packages and such and then we started talking about a monthly get together if at all possible. Here is what we can do.

The city of Winter Garden has "Classic Car Show" the thrid Saturday of every month that runs from 6-9PM. They close down a large portion of Plant Street in old down town for car show parking, have a DJ as well as several give aways from locals businesses such as myself. There are several local restaurants in the area as well as drink and ice cream shops. And a couple adult beverage establishments. The location is about a 1/4 mile from my shop.

It has a wide variety of cars from old and new and it would be great to have a cruise in of a bunch of 5th Gen folks to say the least.

Though the show starts officially at 6PM, there are always folks getting there early for prime parking at 4-4:30 or so. Since I am a sponsor of the show I can get them to hold some spots all together.

What I am thinking is if folks want to get together at my shop ahead of time we can cruise over from here. We could meet here at 4PM or whatever folks feel like doing. If folks want to go over performance needs for their cars or get in some dyno runs we can accomodate that also before the show, but obviously we would need to meet earlier.

What I could do, as this is the first get together, is offer up free base line dyno runs to folks which would be 2 back to back runs with air/fuel reading and printout. Maximum number of cars I could do before the show would be 5 or 6 since we will be on somewhat limited time before the show. It just depends on when folks what to get to my place. Just giving back to those who support my shop.

I would say the earliest I would want to get together at my place would be 1PM or so. I do have an exhaust install on a Corvette that morning and then have some running to do as well as some yard work.

So let me know how much interest there is on getting together before the show as well as who all may want a few dyno runs also. If we get a lot of folks interested in dyno runs, it will end up being on a first come, first served basis to be fair to everyone.

Thanks and hope to see a bunch of 5th Gens as well as any other LS powered cars out this way for sure. :thumbsup:

I don't have a Camaro but I have yet to see one up close to be able to check one out. Any chance of non-Camaro owners being allowed to join? :)

vsgls1 08-05-2009 04:50 PM

Should be able to come out for this.

Mike Norris 08-09-2009 10:40 AM

Blakout, everyone is welcome for sure as it looks like there will be a few first Gen cars out also.

vsgls1, look forward to having the TVS2300 car make it out for sure. I should have the other TVS2300 on this week and ready also.

See ya all here and thanks.

Would love to make it down for this one...

Mike - does your shop do suspension work?

Mike Norris 08-10-2009 06:22 AM

I can do suspension work but I do not have an alignment machine in house. I do have one nearby if need be. The only glitch would be if there are any specific tools required that I do not have.

Let me know if I can be of any help.

The more the merrier for sure. We can compare notes from your single turbo to the TT we are working on.

Just a couple more days folks. Here is what was going on today as Justin from GMHTP was here to cover a Maggie install. Just a couple pics to wet folks appetites. Not bad for $6995 installed and tuned :D

This car is a base M6 SS/RS all stock car with no other mods except for the base TVS2300 as it comes from Magnacharger, so a real world base test with no extras.

Just changed my plugs, next up oil and a wash. So much easier than the 4th gens, no blood and done in about 40 minutes, including moving the blower reservoir to get to the passenger side plugs. See everyone tomorrow. I want to see the blue in person. Maybe Mike can strap it down with some more miles on her and see what she does.

Blakout 08-14-2009 04:47 PM

I look forward to hopefully seeing that install tomorrow. I'm pretty sure I'm going to attend after I'm done with work tomorrow. :) Hopefully arrive around 6pm.

Mike Norris 08-14-2009 09:07 PM

If you are talking about your car Keith, we can do that. The blue SS will be back home in St Augustine. She did put down 498 RWHP and 485 RWT.

Blakout, by 6PM we will be at the car show as everyone coming by my place should be heading to the show by 4PM, 4:30 at the latest for good parking.

See you guys tomorrow.

Mike,
The wife and I talked and she will try to get off work a little early. If we show up around 4pm where do we go?

Mike Norris 08-15-2009 07:01 AM

I would say if you can get to my place by 4, then come to the shop. You can just call me at 407-616-2518 if it is getting close. It would be great to see you guys.

I am not sure just yet what time I am getting back to the shop this afternoon. I want to say maybe 2 or 2:30 as it seems we have a few folks wanting to get in on the free dyno before the show.

See you folks later.

Mike Norris

vsgls1 08-15-2009 12:10 PM

Heading out now, be there around 3.

Mike Norris 08-15-2009 01:06 PM

I just finished cutting the grass, so a quick dip in the pool to cool off and I am there.

Thanks to those that showed up and we had a nice little get together for everyone. Quite a few cars over at the show and I think there were 5 2010 Camaros there.

At the shop we put 4 2010 SS's on the rollers for free as well as a 2009 Vette before heading to the show. Nice to give back once in a while.

Thanks to OD, Jamie, Jon & Sam Pine, Aaron and keith for making the trip. Also good to see truck man Mike :D

We had a little "work" to do on Keiths car and his SS could not park with the rest. But she is a bad ride for sure now.

Good pizza everyone??

Here are a couple of my pics and if it will work a video.

Good times. Finally saw ABM in person, very nice color. I want to thank Mike for running out and getting a missing plug for my intercooler shortly after I arrived with a leak. That plug is priceless. Would also like to thank him for spending some time getting my tune done @ 530 in the afternoon. Pizza was good, as was the show. I will be out next month and I will buy you dinner Mike. Can't wait to see the video.

Glad to be of help Keith and the car runs awesome. I guess it is time for me to get one :D

The next meet is going to be Sept 19th, but I will be in Tennessee for a Pro-Touring event I have been invited to. So you will have to soldier on without me.
