A while ago I was talking about the importance of finding a good tuner who knows his stuff and a few members found it tough to believe my car picked up 118 hp and 84 ft/lbs from dialing in the timing and getting the proper jetting. So here's the sheets that were asked for. The car is a 79 Malibu with a 468 fully studded BBC, 680 lift solid flat cam, around 11:1, L88 074 aluminum heads, old Holley strip dominator with an old 850 dp. Best run was 10.90 @ 123 mph.
Not the best pics and a little faded but first pull 35* and factory jets peaked 488 hp 486 ft/lbs, best pull 38.5* and 92/92 jetting achieved a best of 606 hp and 570 lb/ft
I will note that no parts were changed these are the same session with a change of timing and jets
I believe with a modern carb, intake and ignition system this motor has more potential
