Talking 67 Beaumont Dyno pull

Here's a pull I did last month when I finally got my car on the dyno for a 2-3 hour tuning session. Gained lots.. Ended up with 406hp rear wheels and 460 fpt.

Re: 67 Beaumont Dyno pull

Awseome. Mothing says I love you to your car than a few hours on a dyno to see what your changes actually do that day. I used to have a guy who did his own work and I would periodically take it to a few different dyno and never really figuired out if he was actually making more power. Point? No two dynos read exactly the same. if you want to have fun standing still use the same machine every time so your corrections are identical.

Couple of junkers and a few clunkers.

I gained the better part of 100hp with adding some timing and new metering rods and jets in the carb.
The timing really gained the power and the carb work gave it a nice power curve.
At the shop i went to it's $370.00 for 2 hour dyno/tuning time. Got me about 8-10 pulls. Most fun ive ever had sitting still in a car. Had it up to 5800rpm but all in power was at 5200.
*that was the sound of my motor at 5800rpm in the vid*

Left that place with an ear to ear grin
