We never put a diesel on the dyno.
Yep. I knew you were there forever, with the typical shop stuff. I didn't know you guys did IM240, which is cool. I know ASM was big for a while. I have a few friends that are getting ready to, or have closed up shop, in California. The BAR and CAP would have driven me over the edge.

I was thrilled to walk away from the private part, though the pay cut was tough to take, at least in the beginning. I gained time, and quit hurting my body, and that's worth more than gold. Plus, I don't have to fix anything, unless I feel like it. We have an all wheel dyne for cars and light trucks, and the diesel dyne is over in a different part of the shop.
