You need to get the son-in-law hustling to get all that stuff that the father-in-law cant :poon:

Always great to have a target to shoot for.. and just to think 143 on a single walbro 340 :usa:

That's just insane...

Maybe I'll run the rest of the C16 out of my tank, refill it with 93 and top-off the alky tank again. :D

If his single 340 isn't going lean on him, he HAS to be spraying a ton of alky to make up for it. :yup:

Only because I was having some tuning issues...

I'm pretty sure they are sorted out now... so it may be time to put the WB tracking alky chip back in it and see what happens. :dunno:

The valvesprings that came on the TA heads were wrong for my combo...

I put CC 26120 beehives on it now...
Haven't had much time to romp on it since the last month has been spent fooling with transmissions and converters... but the few times I drove it, it felt like a whole 'nuther car. :yup:

I have a huge thread on the yellow board... Makes for some interesting reading if you are ever bored. :D

Motor won't rev over 5200-5300rpm... WTF??? - TurboBuick.Com

(sorry for the thread hijack) :eek:

That's insane! :crazy:

That has to be right around 800hp on factory crank/rods!

Does anyone have the specs on that engine/combo? Amount of meth being used?

He doesn't give up much info on the tune or "Build" but maybe if you contact the CIA you could get something.
Before he says it "Tune for no KR" did I get it right Grumps?
