It looks like the front spoiler for my gfx will not be arriving in time (it broke off the very first day I had my car and I have been waiting about a month now since the dealer ordered the replacement) but weather looks like it should hold and I look forward to meeting everyone tomorrow

Yourself, we are supplying Burgers and Dogs, drinks and chips, nothing gourmet just a good burger, maybe even some cheese, LOL.

Thanks for the offer.

Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow and having a good time.

Thanks, Geoff.

Please count me in. I've been lurking for a while on here and am patiently waiting for a new Camaro convertible. I'll guess I'll just drive my Vette around until then.

Few more hours.

Our DSV parts did not show up so looks like I will have to take names of the winners.

For everyone who plans on getting on the dyno tomorrow - Note, if you have a chance to fill up your gas tank we'd like to suggest getting either Mobil or BP 93 octane. Our experience is that those two places tend to be a little better when it comes to getting real 93 octane.

We've seen that the new Camaro can be finicky when it comes to cheaper gas and you'll end up not seeing the full power potential as it will get into some slight detonation and pull timing.

With good 93 octane and you'll make your best power numbers.

Thanks,

Eric

Really? Interesting... I've always used Chevron. What do you think of their fuel Eric?

It's a strange phenomenon. Ultimately, all gas comes from just a few refineries. The real difference should just be the additives that individual brands use.

However, we've seen cars come in with "93" octane from a station only to see detonation and a lower power number. We've swapped out for 93 octane from another station and voila, the detonation went away and the hp number went up.

So I can't really comment on all stations but can say that we've seen more consistent readings when it comes to either Mobil or BP gas.

Can't wait for tomorrow, should be a whole lot of fun! I'm really hoping to see some form of customization on some of the cars to see what they look like in person with some aftermarket stuff added.

"It Has Begun"

Cars are showing up already, it's going to be a good day,

If I remember correctly, we haven't seen any issues with Chevron.

If everything goes smoothly, 4 to 5 cars per hour.

Thanks, Geoff.

Hey just want to say it was great to meet everyone today. I am looking forward to next years get together.

Geoff
It was great to see your new spoiler on my car it looked unbelivable the lines just fell in place on the car.

I am working on the wife to get one ordered. Kind of tuff since i just paid to have the factory one painted.

But maybe the carbon fiber??

Nice group of cars. How many 5th Gens showed up? How many did dyno runs? What were the numbers from the dyno runs? The build up to this was high and I think from the pics there were 10 or so there. Good job on the spoiler.
