According to Kent you guy's must care about HP to Mike,

 

 

Bill, I didn't mean to slight you with my comment about the torque to Jon. I can see how you would take it that way and I apologize. 

When I talk to customers it is usually in horsepower and air fuel ratio. 

HP is what most folks want to discuss and I shouldn't downplay it like I did. 

 

When I tune I only reference torque and lambda but very few want to talk about that. I was just glad to see that someone noticed it and got carried away.

Torque... and Horsepower... Look Great! :)

 

Mike... I'd like to know your thoughts on how much the new cam is responsible for the increase and any specs you can share on the old vs. new one.

 

Also, as a guy with "oil issues", I'd really like to know what's going on with the ring packs that your builder is using.

 

Thanks!

No worries Mike, Pretty interesting stuff. Thanks

Here are some pics of some throttle body to intake transitions I've been playing with. These pics are also available on LxF......

 

I rented some dyno time back in November, 2014 to see if an elbow was going to hurt the power vs. a vertically mounted throttle body. Bets were the vertical would make the most power, 6061 elbow then Edelbrock. Turned out they were all were within 5 HP. The last pic was taken last week showing a 148mm throttle body that just tucks under a stock hood.

 

Trans came out last week after developing a leak. It's going back in Friday. THEN back to the dyno and track.

 

All the 90mm Throttle Body set ups are FS. PM if your interested.
