Edelbrock, Quick Data. It's what we run currently. I'm looking into the info on FAST. I thought it was a seperate data recorder. I'll let you know. :cheers:

Troy I have a friend that has a FAST Dash / datalogger and the 8 channel egt stuff. He has about 4 passes on it so it all pretty new. Do you want me to ask him how much he wants for it?

Sure, it never hurts to find out how much the used stuff costs.  Can you find out model number too? :cheers:

We really need to monitor our EGTs, we stretched too many valves on both intake and exhaust.  We also need to modify or relocate our AF sensor, we may be getting an inaccurate reading resulting in unwanted results. :-o  Spend a lot to save even more. :roll: :roll:  This is still amature racing right? :cheers:

Dynoroom's signiture says it all. Without data, you're just a man with an opinion.

I'll ask Matt what he want's for his egt stuff and dashlogger.

  We were the same way Charles [for years] but when we had the car on the dyno for the 1st time last year and they had to shut the run down [ 2096 hp 1960+ torque at 5900 rpm] with mechanical fuel injection because it was lean I finnaly gave up and went with the EFI. We tried to richen it with a boost richening device but it was real hard to start and always was,now it starts great and we have a lot of data to look at after runs but still need more.

  The guys at Fast told me not to have the A/F sensor too close to the end of the collector, as it will get a false reading... keep it upstream near the merge.

   We have zoomies similar to funny cars Bob, 12'' from head and 16'' from end of pipe.

Just a small list of things we need to do before we run next year.
1.  Take out tranny and install near overdrive gearing.
2.  Take out block and balance the internals again.
3.  New zoomies
4.  EGT/data logger?
5.  Rebuild heads(in progress)
6.  A piston or two
7.  Fix crack in water tank
8.  Put it back together
9.  More dyno time

if I forgot something JL222 will add to the list
