Hey guys...mlee and I just left after hanging with Kyle at ARD. We also saw the dyno. Wait for it....

It made #$&@RWHP and #%*RWTQ!

Sorry guys. I don't want to steal any of his thunder. He's on his drive home so I'm sure he'll post up soon.

Got a text from Kyle.

I too will refrain and let him announce.

He is my current hero though.

While anxiously awaiting the numbers I'll simply say had this happened to me that establishment in North Richland Hills, TX would still have yellow crime scene barrier tape blocking access.

although its a big number i dont know what rpm they took it at because it looks as though that you only have 700 rpm to play with (where the horswpower takes over the torque and the car really goes) sorry for the spelling its still early need coffee

yea, that was a good hard pull, went to 63 or 65 hundred, i think 65. But it was pointed out to me just prior to that you can see the tq start to fall quick

The torque is what is propelling the car forward .... Pulling like a freight train down low on the graph. Look at most graphs, they'll show the torque and HP crossing at ~5300rpm, it's just a math calculation.

I'll leave the graph interpretation to the pro's, but I can tell you this much, it's gonna pull HARD...

well.. i figure.. rebuilding an old school V8 when i was younger should qualify as a 3.... but since both engines I built only lasted a few hundred miles I dropped it to a 2

ok.. one lasted 3 years, the other lasted 10 min, so i averaged it out
