Just letting everyone know I'm in the process of getting the garage up and running.

This is sort of an open invitation (as time permits on nights and weekends) to be available to help out with pretty much anything on the Zs. Ranging from resetting oil/inspection lights, checking+clearing fault codes (turning off Check Engine lights), installing most mods and of course any testing desired or whatever else.

I've got a pretty standard tool setup as well as some of Ron Stygar's specialized stuff like BMW specific jack stands and a collection of his Richard Mix built from above short shifter installation tools.

For testing I've got OBDTOOL and Vehicle Explorer. Both can view all sorts of operational data on most 96+ OBDII cars so we can do airflow testing, checking ignition timing+air/fuel ratio (handy for tuning supercharged cars), acceleration testing (also have G-Tech and Vericom for this.. need to find a good road) and a bunch of other stuff.

I recently bought Road Dyno which measures torque/hp (and gives full curves) like a 'real' dyno but does it by measuring acceleration. From the little I've used it so far it is pretty impressive.

I'm located about 5 minutes off exit 5 on Rt95 in Attleboro, Ma.

What I don't know (and could use some opinions on) is if anyone does stop by should I be charging for this? If so what? I honestly don't have a clue how to handle this. I want to help but making a few bucks would be nice as I could use it towards more equipment.

Please feel free to E-mail me if you are interested in stopping by.
