I hope you pick up more than I did. I had a net gain of 5~6 hp. But you cant tell me that it was not more fun than ought to be legal.

It will be a blist for you because I think you should have alot more in there.

Maybe even get some ideas for the future to get more power out of what I got.

Cave was very enthusiastic during his 21 dyno runs... He grinned as I punished that power plant as hard as I could!!

Some people are more uneasy than others when I hammer down o the throttle!!
Speaking of that, you guys can drive your own cars on my dyno, and I'll show you how to run it....

Who has exhaust systems with an O2 Bung welded in??? If you do have one have it pulled before the event to make sure it can be removed easily for the tuning. I can install my 02 sensor for the dyno in these bungs or I have an adaptor for those that don't have a bung.

Try to drive the cars this week to make sure there aren't going to be any Gremlins that we have to repair before testing can begin...

Seems like that same engine in the midget's car made like 126 RWHP at allspeed or something like that and I guess that sweetie's engine has similar characteristics.

Thang needs to remove his carbs before the event and I'll set them up on the bench before we even try to run it on the rollers.. His tune is so out to lunch that I need to start from scratch so we don't chase our tails for an hour trying to jet around float height issues..

BTW- This is a pretty wild place, here atop the Mountain... I took this picture out my office window today.. He's about 6' and 250 pounds and waiting to greet the city slickers with funky hair-dos who show up without an invitation to the party :-)

I don't think it's that far out. I did have an exhaust leak that is repaired now. I'll get it fired up Wed. evening an see how it does then.
Where exactly is the drive that's easy on trailers?

This city slicker without an invitation to the party will be Atlanta Dragway that day. Then it back to the shop to do a transplant into a 59' 356. You guys have fun though, let us all know how it turns out. Cool
