Well it made it to the salt. I stayed home and sent it with some friends. They tried but after 3 tries gave up and came home. They said it went 110. But at least it was there.

The car and motor look great.  I admire you for taking a "road less traveled".  I'm sure you will get the mixture issuses figured out and the car will go much faster with you there the next time.

c ya,

All the plugs are reading way rich at this time. You are right that the rear two are a little leaner then the other six. In the past I have had the stacks sealed to the scoop. Given time I may still, but I hate to screw with those pretty stacks.

Got some pretty new wheel covers. Should add 30 mph to the car, at least. Working on an airbox

Rich, I was reading the May 08 Motor Trend and was amazed to see that the 08 Bentley Brooklands uses a twin turbo 6 3/4 liter Packard engine in it making 530 HP and 774 ft lbs of torque. Its redlined at 4600 but maybe you could use some technology from it in the cylinder head dept. Might be a little tricky finding one but I just thought Id mention it

I don't want to step it up to much and get caught up in the 2 club controversy

I wonder what the good guy deal on those cylinder heads off a $350,000 car is?

I asked about this on the Packard Forum after reading the Motor Trend artical. I was told that other than being a pushrod V8 there is no commonality between Packard and Bentley engines. Still investigating.

Im no Bently or Packard expert Rich, Im just quoting Automobile and Motor Trands May 08 articles that both say the same thing. "Bentley belives this Packard inspired engine to be the oldest V8 in production, since 1959, when its power was described as adequate."  Automobile "The ageless 6 3/4 liter V8 under the hood traces its origins to a 1950's Packard design" Motor Trend. Dont shoot the messenger. There is a Bentley Contental GT Speed with a W-12 engine  with twin turbos and 600 HP also

I'm not shooting anyone. The Packard was made in '55 and '56. Pretty interesting. To bad nobody I know has a Bentley. I Googled it. turns out it's a 1959 Rolls-Royce design. Aluminum block, wet sleeve. No Packard parts. Another good story shot down. Bummer
