Won't beable to do any free pulls. Most shops even have a strap down fee if its strapped and then they decide not to run it still have to pay a strap down fee. Gotta get paid.

i'm actaully pretty happy you said "you gotta get paid". The best way to grow the import scene is by paying up. allows companies to develope new products and open kick ass places like this new shop. not to say the DIY is bad, helps save money to spend more on parts which also helps the scene. i hope this place manages to stay open. pretty big overhead.

The great thing about this shop is it's not focused on imports. It's more of a muscle car shop, restorations make good money and there is plenty of local interest for them to strive. The other great thing they have going for them is when they don't have much to work on since it's a part of Karls I'm sure they will send over some cars to be serviced as well. They will also have their own machine shop, upholstery, and paint shop. Now they won't have to outsource any jobs. Only place in town with an AWD dyno, and not only that probably the best dyno in all of Iowa, everyone is going to want to go there for that. They've got a lot going for them, and I'm really glad that they are being open to the import scene.

What I heard is it isn't a open dyno day. Just a open house with vehicles they choose to dyno. They have a coupon for a discounted dyno rate available at the open house.

Yea I don't know where anyone got that it is a "dyno day". It is just Open house for people to come check out the place and see what its all about. Food and chances to win prices! We will have a few cars that we will be running on it majority of the day for show of the dyno. Dyno rates will be posted on the first page and in the tuning section with the karl performance thread. Will also have the engine dyno running throughout the day as well.
