Dont worry about dyno numbers, I thought I was king around my area when I hit 509rwhp through a stick. Then I went to an auto re ran it on the dyno with no changes beside the auto swap it dropped to 386 hp at the rear wheels. Big deal right? Nope went out running 10.40s, dynos are meant as a tool to get a tune for driving in. Dont worry about those numbers they are pretty good

Like they are saying we dont race dynos. Now if you are building a dyno queen then we understand. but they are just numbers I seen a VW GTI the other night make 527 at the wheels with a 2.0 turbo engine and a stick made more the my friends 451cid mopar with a glide it made 450 at the wheels my friend runs 10.25 the VW well it runs 11.40 fast but still. dont worry about the numbers run the car.
They also make heat boots to put over the wires to save burning them up I just put a couple on a customer of mine due to his burning wires with the p heads
Yeah it has to be. Plus the restrictive gt40p even though theyre lightly ported. Ideally id like to see velocity over boost pressure. I blew a lower intake gasket so ill report back next dyno session.
Yeah the powerpipe must be doing alot. I understand the p heads are restrictive but, the stock pulley is meant to be 8-10 pounds on a stock motor.
For intake gaskets I used the 1250s-3. They are high but have a steel layer in them. They have been holding good so far. I even re-used them on my new motor being left over from my gt40p kenne bell engine.
