I haven’t had a minute to bring you up to speed. This is the car I bought to put the alky motor in. I finally got it done a month ago. I took it to a mediocre track (close by) hoping it would run an 8.40 and was gonna be disappointed if it didn’t run a 8 .50.
The fumes were so bad in the car I decided to hold it down because I wasn’t gonna try and run it anymore until I could do something with the exhaust.
I had planned to only run it an eight mile. It went 8.08 at 168 mph on the very first pass leaving a 4000 and shifting at 6500. Took it to a good track the following weekend. I could tell it was shifting way too early so I moved it up to 7000. I went 7.81, 7.82 7.82 and 7.803 on the last run at 172 mph.
Last night I took it to another track for my son to make his licensing runs and it went 7.78. Needless to say, We’re ecstatic with that performance. No one saw that coming. It’s only a 540 with 325 heads.
I haven’t tuned on it a bit yet and still haven’t turned on the high speed lean yet. I’ll try that the next time I take it to a quarter mile track.
I haven’t once changed a pill or nozzle size. I ordered a racepac with 8 EGT’s but don’t have it in yet.
I’ll keep you up to date. Tell Toni what I said. Both you and her are so knowledgeable on this alky stuff. You’ve helped me so much with this set up. I swear, I haven’t touched a thing on the motor since It started except change the oil and there wasn’t anything wrong with that. I just did it because it’s a new motor.
Love you guys.
