Trip To Mountain Powerhouse

Post  Cave Man on Sun 05 Apr 2009, 11:58 pm

Went to see Jake today with the Athens Club. All I can say is that this has to be one of the best vw days I have ever had. Shop is great, Dyno worked like a champ all day (25 + pulls) on my car alone. With alot of tuning and tweeking Jake managed to get 99.41hp @ 104.74tq from my 1776 with the belt and muffler in place.

Its the same motor that I had last year that did like 80hp.

Cave, it was nice having you up on the hill... I was happy to help you make power and was really impressed with your engine!

What was really cool was 25 dyno pulls without a single RPM signal issue on your car.. I dynoed over a dozen cars over the weekend and didn't have a single bad sample :-)

Hell, we even dynoed my damn Golf Cart!

Best part of it is that he let me do the tweekin using his jets and parts to find the best combo. He waas there to help with the knoledge and what was cool is when the HP went the wrong way he just looked kind of funny and said -- Well lets try this or that.

For sure not the Jake most have the mind set of. Laid back and glad to be sharing his shop, parts, and knoledge. Just another cool vw friend.

Damn Cave, don't blow my cover!!!

When in my world and making HP I am a totally different person :-)

I try to get the most out of everything, even my damn golf cart! Its easy to go backward with tuning, but thats why I have the dynos as they let the engine tell us what it wants..

I fail way more than I succeed generally... Thats what happened to Edison as well, but as he said "I have never failed, only found 10,000 ways that won't work".

Walker and I were fairly effective at Dyno Day....

And the best part is I just counted 23 Deer out the Office window, grazing 50 yards from the building... You won't find that anywhere except the Mountain Power House!
