It's either that or a bad and ugly one. Bob, that was just what I had in mind......

Fast forward to last night and the tank's on my dyno.  It's almost too big to use which is a common Milers problem BTW.

You know Wayne -- he was just showing it off at El Mirage this weekend.  Showing a better way to do things that Henry never thought of.  I even sat in it.  Comfy, but a tank is not on my horizon.

Comfy

Indeed - I was given the opportunity to recline in it in 2013.

I almost took a nap . . .

 

LeBron James could fit in this thing.

So the wiring must be working - unless Wayno just decided to test fit the car on the dyno.

I don't think that's likely.

So if the wiring is working, it stands to reason that the engine is running.

I think that's likely.

And if the engine is running, and the car is on the dyno, it stands to reason that the car made some pulls.

That, too, I think was likely.

And if the car made some pulls, it stands to reason that there were some horsepower numbers generated.

Given Nate's professionalism, I doubt there was trouble recording data, so once again, I think it's likely some numbers have been generated.

And therefore, it stands to reason that we'd love to know what those numbers were . . .  wink

But given Wayno's cunning smile and secretive ways, will we see those numbers?

Not likely.  wink

 cheers

Lookin' fantastic, Wayno!

Wayne visited with me on the starting line at El Mirage as we were getting ready to make a pass Sunday morning. He indeed said that "Most" of the wiring  was complete. So with the picture of it on the dyno speaks well for him getting the final bits needed to see how the tuneup is.
Best of luck Wayne. Good to see you.  cool

Whoa.  Wayno, the air in Salina must have finally got to you.  Chris a "little man"?  What were you thinking when you typed that?

Unh, on second thought, -- I don't want to know any more about the subject.  TMI, you know. . . evil

There's always a doubt when you're doing something like a custom adaptation of an engine management system onto a vintage engine. This isn't a sbc where you just drop on some parts, connect up the wiring harness and start making dyno pulls. I know a lot of people think EFI means it just turns on and tunes itself but that's far from reality.   Without getting into details, this is going to be one of my more challenging tuning experiences and my focus is getting a good, safe basic tune in as few pulls as possible as a starting point that can then be dialed in on the track. 

I'll let you guys know how it goes this weekend but I wouldn't expect to see any significant hp numbers as I'm not tuning this thing pull after pull after pull to wring out every last bit of power that it can make.

That approach fits right in with my thinking.  wink Sparkplug Gary (Whom did the not only beautiful but well engineered wiring job) is scheduled to assist Nate with the dyno pulls tomorrow. I understand Mang and Per are going with him. Thanx everyone.  cheers Wayno
