dyno chart 3.jpg
Dyno sheet, 3/21/03375 viewsSo, here is the final HP tally. See attached dyno sheets. Per Dave at JBA:

"Max RWHP: 412 at 5300 RPM - calculated at flywheel 518 HP
Max RWTQ: 444 at XX00RPM - calculated at flywheel (TBD)
Timing - unknown

Notes:
Dyno run stopped at peak HP (5300 RPM/101 MPH); car bounces too much
Good power - what kind of cam? good choice
Slightly retard timing and richen fuel mixture at max load per request"

It runs much better, and cleaner. Spins 'em up in 3rd gear very easy now - have to be very careful when romping on the gas above 3K RPM! The idle seems too low - about 600 RPM - but they say I should leave it there. I am pretty happy with it (even if I am a little short of my 550 HP target). I can always install a 12 lb. blower pulley later!

Levy oil pan mods128 viewsHad to add a 1/4" NPT brass bung for the Vortech oil return line and the Autometer oil temp sensor. Silver soldered them in.

Fuel lines under passenger side131 viewsUsing 1/2" Earl's aluminum feed line with -10 AN fittings and steel 3/8" return lines (FFR kit feed lines) with -6 AN fittings. Stainless Adell clamps into the frame - with 3/8" x 8-32 stainless cap head bolts into tapped holes in the frame. Looks neat! Lines were painted with Rustoleum satin silver.

trans tunnel alum 4.jpg
trans tunnel alum front125 viewsMy tunnel top cover pieces (both long front and short rear piece) are too narrow by about 1/8" to fit over the tunnel frame, so I've just cut the sides off and am using Riv-nuts (in the 3/4" steel tubes) and stainless 10-24x1/2" panhead bolts to hold the cover on (so I can access the trans and shifter if need be).
The right side upper 3/4" tube of my trans tunnel has a 1/8" bow in the middle, I had to trim the right side floor/tunnel side aluminum to match.
