Guys, how does this sound for a Motor City Marauder get together?! Lidio is hosting a Marauder Dyno and Tune Day at Alternative Auto. His Dyno Days are always a BIG draw around town. As always, our events are open to any Marauders from around the country, there are a lot of Marauders that could benefit from Lidio's touch! Don't miss the chance to have one of the best tuners in the business today evaluate your Marauder. There will be several Trilogy cars on hand, from the #1 Trilogy to the SEMA car, as well as the two fastest Trilogy Marauders (so far!), Lidio's and Dave's. There will be plenty of test drives to show different mod combinations to give people a chance to see what it is like before doing it on their own car.
Per Lidio, this is how things will go:
"Like any other 'dyno day' at my shop we charge $50.00 for two or three pulls. Thatís it usually, only the two or three pulls and not custom tuning because you really can't get any thing conclusive done in two pulls unless you run it N/A on one run and then turn on NOS or some thing the next run. The DynoJet on that day will NOT be usable or rentable at an hourly rate because of the volume of cars we usually try to knock out in the 7-10 hours weíll be there. So if youíre looking to try many things or bring your own tuner or tuning software, unless its a little tweek thats not real time consuming... it would require a dyno appointment another time.
Also like other dyno daysÖ. We charge an extra $25.00 to log Air/Fuel ratio with our true wide band 02 which does not go into the tail pipe. I donít believe in tail pipe tuning so ours requires an available 02 bung in the exhaust ahead of the first set of cats if the cats are still there. For those of you with stock MMís or with very little done or even mild exhaust workÖ donít sweat the Air/Fuel ratio thing, a stock MMís Air/Fuel ratio at WOT is about 12.8-13.00 to 1... This is optimal and requires no adjustment at all. This is what Iíve seen on every MM we tune thatís N/A.
I'm open toÖÖ., and considering doing some tunes on that day for a limited number of MM's possibly. As many know I'm now a full SCT tuner using their software, chips and very soon their hand held tuner. I have programs for the MMís on chips with and with-out 4.10s. For the hand held tuner all I need to do is load them into the hand held and start using them or sending them out.
So far my MM performance tune for 3.55s and 4.10s is working out great. No spark knock on premium fuel (92-93 octane), no overly harsh shifts, and every body seems to love what I do with the transmission/torque converter. I donít currently own the device that allows me to flash a car and then let the customer go with just that and no hand held for him to proceed home with, with multiple programs and the ability to flash back to stock.
So it would have to be a chip or a micro tuner type thing. The chips installed will be about $400.00 for the whole thing Iím thinking; youíre before and after pulls, chip and all in the $400.00. If itís done with a flasher I think that price will be about $100.00 more and you leave with a Micro tuner with two additional programs and the ability to flash back to stock if needed.
Well thatís a starting point I hope for every one. Iím open to doing some light custom tunes or just plane selling my chip or handheld to any interested MM owners on the dyno day. Youíll be able to test drive the car before you leave or before it goes on the dyno etc. I assure you the program we have for N/A Marauders with or with out 4.10ís is getting great reviews mostly for the throttle response and trans/torque converter stuff we do."
If you want to inquire about having some other mods done that day by Lidio's mechanics during the dyno day, contact Lidio PRIOR to the dyno day to see if he can accomodate your needs. It may be possible to do a couple of gear swaps that day, but it will need to be set up in advance. Lidio is very happy to work around things for the Marauder owner! If you have any questions, please contact Lidio at email@example.com , or Dave at firstname.lastname@example.org .
