I'm guessing the pulley sizes at 3.2 / 3.3 / 3.4 ??

Definitely another 13 sec Bonne this year.

No one mentioned the T stat..

13'*... Hmmm Travis had most of those mods last year and came up short for 13'*. Darn close though. I'm thinking Matt'* new trans may be the deciding factor.

PEM'* will be a bigger factor in IMHO. Plus, the AFPR, flow-matched injectors, a little tighter rear suspension preventing sqautting at full ELC load, the ported SC, ported TB, 3.2 pulley, ..... yeah, he should be very high 13'* on street tires even, or damn close to it.
With slicks he should be very well seated in the 13'* (13.7-13.8'ish).

Looking back at my, Travis and Matt'* setups at WCBF...

It comes down to the trans. I'm postive that Travis could have already broken into the 13'* if his trans was fresher. 2 tenths...

PEM'* help flow..but the rockers offset a chunk of that need. We have many running rockers or cams w/stock manifolds.

Plus.. if you can't put power to the ground... you can't move fast.

There..bought an overhead valve spring compressor tonight and a magnet tool for the keepers...
Question..what size are our spark plug holes in mm? Id measure but I have no plugs with me at all...i need to get an air fitting to go in there to hold the valves up.
Thanks!

Secondly...
Reading the instructions on the rocker install..sounds straight foward, however, they say they want you to take all kinds of measurments with feeler gages..okay..easy enough, and to check the pattern of each roller tip by using Prussian Blue Gear tracer compound (tons of that at work)..
Does everyone do this..or are they just REALLY covering there asses?

Size of the air fitting for the plug holes to hold the valves up:

The size of the fitting you go and buy at the auto parts store. There'* only two. One will look too big.

The other one is the right one. Drive down, we'll use mine, and save you the 5 bucks.
