Sorry I didn't get back here sooner. We learned the power supply in a dyno room can kill not only one but two MS3X boxes! Unfortunately we had some electrical gremlins that didn't let us get any info worth a damn. We are to dyno again in mid August now to finish up some tests that we never really got to do. I at least got the direction on what heads to use (Small Valve heads) and am currently making some adjustments to our Hilborn setup. Still plugging away but things were looking promising with the short pulls we could do.

We have our second test session on the 25th of this month. Hopefully things go much better this go around. We will have a third test session a couple of weeks before the event then it gets crated up and shipped to Ohio.

Just wanted to share an update with you guys. We had our test session yesterday and things went well for once. I solved one problem we encountered last year with the throttle blade flutter with a modification to our throttle body. Now it idles nice and smooth and has normal manners finally. Hasn't been an easy task due to the unique design but I've learned a ton! =D>

Mechanically things went well, tried all sorts of cam phasing, and tested all the headers we had. We found our baseline cam was spot on. Learned some things on the EFI side along the way. I feel we have a strong piece so I'm excited for October and hope we brought enough. Motor is getting torn down to freshen for the final combination and one last session to make sure all is well before it gets crated up for the trip to Ohio.

Also got word that there is a nice multiple page write up in the new Engine Masters magazine set to be out later this coming week. Not sure what is written but I'm excited to get the issue, hope the info is correct.
