I met the owner last night... Tony.
We had a nice talk, very knowledgeable guy, he used to road race bikes(AMA).... very nice facility.

Lunch to be catered by H(.)(.)TERS!!! Not just to-go boxes either! The X chromosome staff will be there too ;) :p

Should be fun! Even just to observe! :D ;) :p

I tested the tie downs last night to make sure IRS Cobras could do this event.

No problems!

While it was all set up they asked if I wanted to see what she'll do.

Of course I said YES!!! :bounce:

524 HP / 468.7 Ft-Lbs

I picked up 136 horse with the mods done.... since the first bone stock Slaters Dyno day(388.6) :D :p Yes you can feel it! :eek: :D

3.50" upper pulley / stock lower = approx 13 pounds. :thumbsup:

You are correct... that doesn't sound like me. :eek:

It is tuned ... via RWTD E-mail tune. Loaded and tweaked via SCT Xcal2 by me. A/F approx 11.2 / 11.5 (EDIT!!!) an endurance racing type of fairly rich tune... yet a fair amount of timing for 93 octane.

The rich mixture is the main reason the HP is as low as it is... a little leaner and 530+ would be possible.

10.0 is a rich tune, 12.2 is borderline lean in these cars.
