2)  Blowby Logger Data A user of our Blowby Sensor and Mini Logger sent us some data they recorded when running a 331 SB Ford on their DTS dyno.  The DTS dyno did not have any spare channels, so the separate logger was the obvious fix.  The data is for 3 back-to-back runs, about 2 minutes of recording time.  It shows good repeatability, and how handy it is to have a separate logger recording both blowby and RPM.  In the highlighted row in the list it shows 2.80 CFM at 6951 RPM at 52.9 seconds into the data set.  This data could be exported to Notepad for more analysis if needed.

3)  Labor Day Holiday  The office will be closed both Friday, Sept 2 and Monday, Sept 5 for the Labor Holiday.  We will try to answer all emails and phone messages when the office is closed.  Enjoy your last holiday of the summer!
