Re: Amerkin Idol

unfortunately I was out of town. All my people here did though, and got a ton of video. Some friends of mine did the stage set, and videography. The WHOLE town was shut down, businesses and all.

Spotted monored XR in Hampton, SC

As I was driving to NC to visit family, I had a feeling that I was going to see something interesting on the road. I just happened to look over to southbound traffic, to see a mono red, bi plane XR being towed. I was going to turn around and Chase it down, but on 95, there is nowhere, until the next...

Re: Unhappy Dyno results:

He's already running out of fuel at 4500. He can skip the injectors if he increases fuel pressure. We do know that the stock brown tops are good for 300hp this way. The fuel pump is just for added safety, not gonna help his cause. Where do you suggest I set my fuel pressure. Its set at 39# at idle ...

Re: Unhappy Dyno results:

I'm running the Ranger cam, but have a Modern Performance cam waiting to be put in. I would like my power to be more mid range, to upper. Looks like I'm on the hunt for a Walboro, and some 52' s to start.

Re: Unhappy Dyno results:

Would you mind posting the graphs? Does it feel faster the way it is now? and what's with all the smoke? What engine management are you running? That's a lot of mods to be running an LA3 on. I'll post graphs tomorrow, the car feels much faster, and response seems better. I am not running any engine...

Unhappy Dyno results:

So I hit the dyno yesterday, with unacceptable results. I ran 223hp/234tq. I went backwards on what I ran before my upgrades. Before, I was mostly stock with the exception of Ranger roller, stinger 3"DP, and LA3/ big vam. I ran 225 HP/304tq before. Since then, I ported and polished the head, in...

Re: Driveline vibration

It looks like I might have to go back to the 2 pc. I might try to check for driveshaft balance, before I do that. I installed my new trans mount last night, but didnt really drive it enough to feel any vibration.
