On the dyno, we have not one but two Nissan 350Z's.  These Z's came in for tuning with UpRev Osiris.  We have been tuning several cars with the UpRev Osiris system lately but this is the first time we had two on the same day.  However, with the increase in the popularity of UpRev tuning, this probably won't be the last.  

Each of these Z's had a few upgrades but were running the stock tune.

Radium Engineering often comes down to use our Dynojet dyno for their baselines and tunes.  We work closely with them so it is always a pleasant visit when they stop by.  The purpose of this visit was to tune a Lotus Elise that they recently installed their turbo kit  on.
