[........................The car is a lot of fun to drive.  He takes it out on the street (yes, it's legal in Missouri!) frequently, I think Sumner has ridden shotgun in it.....-scott

Yep I've ridden in it, but he left the shotgun at home cool.  He has the suspension set up real tight as is necessary on the salt, but still I could ride in it a long ways ....................... if I was driving tongue .  The really amazing thing about the car besides it's great HP numbers is that even in cold weather, like when I've been there, just turn the key like your family car and it fires right up and idles.  I'll have to give the credit for that too MegaSquirt and Scott's (dieselgeek) tuning abilities and not necessarily in that order,

I think you'd better keep your hands off of other cars rear-ends  cheesy, well maybe we would let you feel Hooley's rear-end, I mean his Stude's rear-end if you were nice about it  grin,

P.S. Kind of sounds like a line from American Graffiti...........

We had a very sucessful dyno session. My thanks go out to Mike C, Scott, Mike H and Kyle with the video camera and Tom who has the dyno. I think the 800 mile trip was worth it. We towed home in the snow all the way, temps in the single digits and when we got home and winched the car off the trailer, scraped the ice off the windshield, flipped the ignition on, hit the starter button, she fired right up. This efi is great stuff.

Mike Collison and myself took both cars (#1950 & #787) to the Hot Rod Power Tour (Springfield, MO only). We had a great time visiting with many people, you can see photos on Hot Rod.com, day 2 photos. See you all on the salt in August.

I wrapped the headers with some more wrap, adjusted valve lash, changed oil and filter, installed new spark plugs, greased cluch and shift linkage , installed good rear tires and lubed the chute release cable. All that's left to do is drain the gas out of it leaving just enough to start it and back out of the shop and run up on the trailer. We leave two weeks from this Friday morning.

    Hi Gary
 
   Now i'm really jealous. Break that record and get in the 2 club.
   Will you be able to turn up the power if needed?

        Good luck and see you at the real dyno JL222

JL, I can up the boost to approximately 16 psi for more power is needed. I will run the 10 psi springs in the wastegates first and hope I can go fast enough. As you know the hard part is mashing on the loud pedal hard enough to go fast without spinning the rear tires too much. You guys might not have as much a problem with that with the wide rear tires you run. I would like to visit with your wife about the Hart genology. Cya

Well, we arrived here in Evanston Wyoming this afternoon about 6:00 oclock. Will leave for the salt about 7:00 in the morning, should arrive on the salt about 11:00 AM, barring any unforseen problems. Cya
