Well Pete was able to surpass my expectations! last time with cams he asked what I expected and I said 320, we made 318 and change. This time I said 410-420 and the first pull was 410.0! He got it to 428 on the last pull. I was happy, and Pete always does a good job. An added bonus is that so far my gas mileage went up nearly 3mpg too, I was shocked by that.

It was pretty cool, I have never seen it so busy there. A nice new 5.0 was getting tuned before me but he forgot his tuner at home, made 385 with an intake, exhaust, Boss 302 manifold and canned tune. The car after me maxed out the dyno last time he was there and he was trying for more this time, Pete prepped the roller with VHT track prep before he pulled on lol. It was a twin turbo 5.3 liter stroker with, as the owner said, "only 30 pounds of boost"

I drove up Mount Washington again this year. The summit was shrouded in clouds, but on the way down I was able to get a couple good pictures.

Awesome pics Grim!!!

Paul, if/when you go to Pete's, let me know and I'll most likely meet you there, or maybe you can swing by Hudson and we head up together
