Today we got a good start on preparing the car for Bonneville.  We did a little fiberglass work on the front end, one more coat and it should be done.  Finished the installation of the winch, which works great.  We started the car again today and it sounded better than previous starts.  Going to the dyno tomorrow night.  The side plates are finished and we did a little touch up painting to some of the bad spots on our rear fender.  The car is all loaded up and ready to go to the dyno.  Here are a few pictures of the rear spoiler.

Me too, but I know there are issues in some parts of the website, ie: Max's build.

  The loud exhaust was vibrating the dyno computer hard drive so much that it would shut off the readings, so they stuck it in another room. Another pull later the sound blew out one bank of floresent lights ( about 12 ft high) and made all the lights go on and off rapidly.A long night, decided to quit at 3 am and go back at 6 pm today. Getting close on air fuel ratio -then change timeing- then full pull. I was amazed at how much they load the dyno,really makes the engine grunt.

First dyno attempt, only on the throttle for a few seconds to get a good Air/fuel ratio.

This was the last video of the night and you can hear the engine sounding better.  We leaned it out more but didn't start it.  I will be leaving for the dyno again in a few minutes but wanted to get this one last video in.  Hope the videos are not overkill, because there will be at least two more after these.  Be back later tonight.  Enjoy. grin

Well, we got some numbers..... You ready for these, because i'm so excited i'm shaking while i'm typing. grin  Torque numbers as of now, at the rear wheel is 1969.  Horsepower at the rear wheel, number is as of now 2093.8 and still needs about 32% more fuel. grin grin grin

  We ran out of pills and nozzles still lean on the top end. Going to try and use the boost sensing device to get more fuel on the top rpm's and less on the lower rpm's. 2093 hp at 5950 rpm.Were happy but they say there is more.

Whoa -- the word "stout" comes to mind.  And there's more, they tell you?  Good luck. . .

I have to give the guys at Precision Auto a lot of cudos for helping us get to this number.  I would recommend there dyno to anyone near and around the Central valley in Cali.  They are pretty excited about the results as well, the previous best on their dyno was 1700hp.  We are not done testing there because we need to get the fuel curve better adjusted at the low rpms and get more fuel at the top.  My last video of the car on the dyno for awhile. grin grin
