Did you by any chance do a dyno run with the cutouts open and closed?

Screenshot of the dyno runs. I think the last two are with cutouts open. Kenny can confirm.

That's from me. That's my YouTube page, and yes that's one of my liked videos. Simon and Garfunkel did a kind of cover of that song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pey29CLID3I
I had heard their song first, and looked up the original Peruvian song.

Oh I had no idea they covered it. The song itself is a classic that kids down in Peru (myself included) are taught to play on the flute.

Back to regularly scheduled V8 programming...

Open cutouts



I drove this thing for the for the first time yesterday, and it's pretty quick. Sounds amazing with the cutouts open too. We still have a few bugs to work out, but we did manage to do a pretty mean burn out. Good times

Default Holley switchover

Ok, so I bought a Holley Terminator X system. Removed the MS2 and MSD 6012 and PLX wideband.
Plugged in the harness, ran power, ground and switched power. Holley comes with a Wideband. Cranked right up. Idled funky, until I reconnected a plug wire I had taken off- oops! Came up and idled smoothly at 850 rpm. Took it for a shakedown cruise and let it learn. Very happy with driveability. It seems to have smoother throttle response and I can tell itís learning. It stalled a few times coming back to idle , but after a while it settled down and didnít stall. I used some Autex pressure sensors for fuel and oil that read out on the handheld.
I got stuck in traffic and coolant temps no higher than 205* in 90* ambient.
I am really pleased with this setup.
