Neil, I'll look into those rivets though I doubt I'll be using them in this instance. It's time for something more substantial. Wayno

Wayno;

The 1/8" dia AVEX rivets have a shear strength of 165 lbs and a tensile strength of 230 lbs. The 3/16" dia ones are 1090 lbs and 715 lbs. I doubt if either of those would fail.

Neil, I'm not questioning the rivet strength. I'm talking about maybe going to a heftier housing.  :cheers: Wayno

Upon further review, I was going 140 when it shut off. That's even better.  :-)  :cheers: Wayno

And that was only what, 3/4 down the track? That's pretty alright for a second shake down run on a new EFI system.

That's pretty much what I'm thinking, Nathan. Not to mention the 80% throttle stop. Right at the last I was picking up 10 mph every 3 seconds and just coming in to my designed power band. Potential seems to be there.  :wink: I think I'm going to really enjoy this AEM Infinity.  I've already learned a lot. :cheers: Wayno

I see someone's been studying their data logs.  :wink:  hard to imagine how we ever got by without all that data.

Here are a couple of posters Gus made up for me. I like them both very much. What do you think?  8-) Wayno

Very nice, I like the B&W one best.  The plane is a nice touch but remember you can only have one engine so make sure the ones on the plane or non-functioning  :evil:

Yea, I think in sepia tone and then photo tint in the yellow squares on the checker board....and the little elmo on the front...
Photoshop can be a wonderful thing... With enough time it could even make Wayno look good  :evil:  :cheers:

Stainless, first, that ain't Elmo on the front. It's the "White Goose Bar" logo. Second, it'd take more than Photoshop to make me look good.  :cheers: Wayno
