Looks real good. They should make a big difference

Bill, you may want to set Milzy as a vendor

Fantastic! So you've got more power than your poor man'* P&P? You gotta do a dyno run and some 1/4 miles now. I need to know how fast that car is running!

Defintely more power than my poor man'* P&P.
I'm going to order some plugs today. When i get them, i'm going to continue tuning with GMTuners. (i'm still not getting any knock, i can hardly believe it)
I've also got some light weight wheels and new tires in the mail too.
I gotta get to the track now!!!!

Yes, you do! I'm excited and scared to see what 1/4 mile you turn out. I'm excited because you're the most hardcore N/A car in the club, but I'm scared that it won't be as fast as I think it will be. I hope it flies, man.

Now I gotta get my poor man'* heads finished up and installed. You're giving me the N/A mod bug all over again.

For-Real.
3.06 gears + old suspension + heavier bonnie isn't gonna help me out.
Plus i should be shifting a little higher then the 64xx i am right now.
I actually have to get the new wheels and tires on before i go to the track because the front two are balding pretty bad. Don't worry though the wheels should be here this week and i can get the tires any time this week too.

What do you think your car will run? What are you hoping for anyway

Keep us updated.

Ya know, the work you're doing is a good "launch pad" for the rest of us who are interested in N/A power. The results of your experiments with N/A tuning will probably influence my decision to either continue down the N/A road or find a suitable power-adder. Thanks for being one of the Bonneville pioneers in this area.

Man, I hope you can hit low 14s. Do you think high 13s are possible with your setup?

I'm hoping for high 14'* first time at the track. I've never raced at a track before so just getting into the 14'* should be hard enough. Then with some practice and tuning i'm hoping for sub 14.5'*.
I defintely don't think i can get 13'* without doing tranny work and slicks. But i'd like to see how close i'll get.

I'm already talking w/ my L67 regal friend about when where gonna go.
