Not AMS the EVO shop. They are in IL.

AMS, they are 15801 Rockfield Blvd in Irvine. I was thinking about checking them out. They do have a dyno that handles 2000hp and 200mph.

LargeOrangeFont, how was your experience?

It was ok. I wouldnt have let anyone there work on my car, but they seemed like nice guys. I was there a couple years ago for a dyno day and they had just got their Dynojet. It was not set up right, as every car made 30-40 less WHP than it should have.

They have it figured out now im sure. Saleen used to use them for Dyno testing more recently than I was there.

So how were they busy wise? Was there a decent amount of work there, or did it seem dead?

I talked with the owner, Mike, and he said they still deal with Saleen and the have many dyno days. He said the dyno is going good now.
