For those who are just tunning in this post is a continuation from a previous post
concerning track result with my new engine ran in all street trim, tires and all.
Pat Kelly since the last time I spoke with you my chevelle ran a 13.6 shifting at 5800RMP
and a MPH best of 99.67 due to engine starving for fuel, I have changed the back two jets
from 78 to 80's. My first run with the new jets the chevelle ran a 13.502 at 101.00MPH with
a 60 foot time of 2.0832. Next I went two jets up in the front from a 71 to a 73 and my first
run with the jets landed me with a 14.2 at 104 MPH with a 60 foot time of 3.074, bad start,
my second run with the jets landed me a 13.206 at 103 MPH with a 60 foot time of 2.033.
I can only get four runs in because of a race the next day so tunning was limited but
this was a fairly big improvement compared to last weeks run. I really believe that if I can
get my sixty foot time under 2.0 then I should get 13.00 flat or 12.99, with more tunning
I should for sure get high 12's. Oh by the way found out my stall converter only stalls
at 2200RPM, suppose to be 2400 but you know how that goes, anyhow my cars power band does
not make real power until 2800-3000 RPM.
