Yup. Gonna dyno the money pit, then install the Slide-a-link bars in hopes that the rain will wait until after test 'n tune tomorrow at 6. Should be interesting to see how much change going from an 8" to a 9" and a Strip Annihilator ignition make.

More importantly, I think it is lean in the upper rpm range, and this will confirm/deny it.

Don't have an engine lift, place/time to pull the engine, or access to an engine dyno, so we have to make do with what we have!

Friends of ours just came back from Bolling Green KY with their O/SA 89 Mustang. Dave and Mike Mercer spent an entire day at Holley on their high tech chassis dyno. Showed up at Cordova with high expectations as the "chassis dyno" showed improvements of 10-11 HP. Guess what? They were slower than the were in Ohio in some of the best conditions we have raced in this year.
Changed programs back to where they were and the car picked right back up. This is only one of many, many experiances I have first hand knowledge of with chassis dyno tunes ups. The dyno operator can make the machine say anything he wants it to.
In case any of your forgot, I used to operate one at Mr. Norms GSD back in the 70's. Granted the Clayton unit with Sun instrumentation was no where near the alledged sophistication of todays Dyno Jets and what have you, but never the less, I could still make it show as high an increase as I wanted to based on the input/calibration I gave it.
Good luck and keep all of your old information.

Well, it showed me as being at 12:1 A/F ratio from about 3700 up to 5500, where it gradually goes up to about 12.5:1. So I think I will be dropping the jets to 65/71. Also, the A/F dropped pretty low when I went WOT. Does that mean the squirter size is off? They are at the stock .028 squirters. thanks!
