Weird stuff.

When I got off Docs dyno I was at 470 rwhp.

Owen advanced the timing a bit and set the idle up.

I beat Chris and the car ran great. Felt better than EVER after that.

I dynoed at Vengeance at 454. WTF?

Then tuned to 470 by Mike at Vengeance.

Leak got worse maybe?

Or it could be temp. at the time. Or if the car was hot. Elevation and humidity too.

I still think it was speedster's fire suit.

Man look what happens when I go on vacation for a week. By the looks of it your car has been gone for about 6 days now and I am glad you are getting the cam done while it is there.

I think that you will be happy with the results once you get it back. Do the cut outs as well, just saying......

All dynos are different. What counts is what was it when you dropped it off and what was it when you picked it up. The difference between those two sets of numbers is all you need.

I'll bet you will feel a difference.
