(Bottom right pics)



Last night Brian Kennedy was up in MN tuning a Mustang and my buds Supra. After he got theirs roughed in we decided to just do a couple quick runs with my car. Check out my wavy gravy AFR, looks like I have a little work to do. I had a little boost creep also. But all in all I'm pretty happy with what this junk yard engine can do.



Let me have it, + or - comments.

Wow, that car is insanly fast for only 295rwhp. What psi was that run made at?

I remember it at 17psi, it was pretty quick Cam have you weighed your car?

Hey guys, been a while since I've been online. Been REAL busy at work lately.



If you look at the dyno sheets you can see what pressure I'm running. It was a max of 11psi. Also, this is a dyno dynamics dyno. They read a bit lower than the others. Brian said the others read anywhere from 12-17% higher. So that would put me at ~330hp on one of the other dynos. I was kicking myself that I didn't run more pressure (15-17) I know it's a **** pile faster running those levels but oh well.

2 things, it will run forever at 10psi. 2 tune the **** out of it @10psi, its safer/easier.

It may run forever at 10psi but you know how it goes... More pressure more fun.

Whoa. Those are awesome numbers at just 11psi. Wonder what it'd be at 15-17 range?
