TUNED: Camaro SS

The shop was rumbling thunder yesterday with this rowdy Camaro SS on our Dynojet. It arrived with an aftermarket intake and exhaust installed and we unlocked the true power potential hidden under the hood.  As you can see, a good tune goes a long way in maximizing the effectiveness of your modifications! Bring your car to PSI and let us unleash your cars final form!

Baseline: 320WHP / 318 ft-lbs

TUNED: Sweet Lou’s S13

Lou brought his S13 by for some love to get it on the track this weekend for a drift event.  Before getting down to tuning, we did a  proper break-in session on his freshly built SR20.  Several miles going through varying load patterns on our Dynojet allows for the ideal conditions to ensure a new motor’s longevity.

We set his power at a safe level given that the fuel system was running out of headroom and he will return after the event for more mods and even MORE POWER! The end result will be an easily obtainable and track reliable 350WHP.

FAB: James’ DC Integra

James brought his GS-R by for some exhaust touch up work. Now that it’s daily driven, the straight pipe had to go. Fireballs are fun, but going deaf is not! We installed a Vibrant race metal core catalytic converter to both help turn down the angry bees as well as please the law.  Added benefits over a traditional ceramic cat include better resistance to vibrations and up to 40% more flow than OEM.

TUNED: Brian’s Focus ST

Brian brought his Focus ST to us for one step colder plugs, a few small tweaks, and a retune. We wrapped the inlet pipe with high quality Mishimoto gold reflective tape to reduce inlet temperatures. For the money you can’t beat the performance of this ST!

BIMMERFEST EAST 2013 at Ripken Stadium Aberdeen, Maryland

The day of the even started off early for me. I was up around 8:30am on Saturday. I decided to not take my own BMW and just ride with one of my friends. We put painter’s tape all over his Acura MDX to show love to the fellow BMW enthusiasts we were going on the caravan with.  We were suppose to meet up with everyone at Shady Brook Farms in Newtown, PA. Myself and my two friends were running a little late so we decided to just catch up with the caravan on the highway.

We finally caught up with everybody at a toll booth in Delaware.  The whole caravan was pulled over on the right side of the road immediately after the toll booth. I guess they were waiting for everyone else to catch up too.  The rest of the cruise was pretty straight forward. We didn’t have to get off the highway until we actually got to Aberdeen. There were over 30 cars in the caravan and keeping everybody together was a task all in itself.  We finally pulled into the event and the line to get in was at least a mile long.

The event started out good with it only being 20 bucks for the car to get in.  As soon as we pulled into the event it was just BMW’s as far as I could see. There were old ones, new ones, some concepts. This show pretty much ran the gamut with BMW’s. There were so many nice BMW’s that I was overlooking some and couldn’t take them all in at once.  Instead of taking pictures of everything I decided that I would compare them to my car. So the test was if the car in question is nicer than my car than I would take a photo of it.  Needless to say I didn’t get as many pictures as I would of thought.

There were only a couple of downsides to the event. The lines at the food and beverage stands were just too long. Besides the wait to actually get your food or drink you also paid an arm and a leg for it. The selection of food lacked variety as well. I was not expecting a 5 star restaurant or anything like that either.  It would of been nice to get a cheeseburger fries and a drink for under $15 though. There was not any shade around the actual show at all. You had to either go to the stadium or find a tree to sit under.

All in all I want to say that I had a fantastic time at the event. My overall experience was great. I will definitely go back next year. The next time I am bringing burgers and a grill with me so I can just make food for myself. Also I am going to bring a tent and a cooler so I can keep cool.  Until we meet again at the next event my friends.
