Anyone know how to tell for sure with out taking it to the track?
Watch your tach if it's suddenly rising in RPM in third it's probably blowing through. Many who would have thought you'd be blowing through w a 4 cyl (half V8). Very impressive !!

I never really watched the tach that closely to see the rpm drop from gear to gear because by the time third comes Im looking more of what's in front of me. Lol! but that's a good idea and ill try giving it a try... Thanks...

Hey everyone.

I'm curious what you guys think my 4 cyl should make @ the wheels with 34 psi. I'm taking it down to a dyno jet dyno in a few days to see. Any predictions ?? I will only be spinning it to 5800 just so you know.. E85 for fuel....

I just went out with the car and checked where the different knob settings r for 34- 38 and 40 psi so I can go right to them while on the dyno. Looks like 40 is on the agenda for dyno day now. It feels like from 30 to 40 its adding 150 hp. I guess now I will find out right . Cant wait.. U should get down there Jeff it will b interesting no doubt ....
