The more I think about it, the more likely it is. With these scan results, and the much improved flow, it'* a no-brainer I'll be running a 2.2" pulley with little to no KR on a MILD bump in octane.

This confirmed my suspicions from last season. It was the SC and LIM porting that enabled the use of the teeny tiny pulleys.

Just bring the puller with you to the track and swap the 2.2" between cars, between runs

or....just in case one runs out of gas

or...if you do testing between both Bonnevilles, just make sure for race day that the 2.2"er ends up on the green, SCed one.

Wait, the green one, or the green one?

Oh, you mean the one with the crosslaces......and the sunroof...Uhhh...





Seriously, I was starting to think about this today. IF I get the Zilla'* fueling figured out, they may both be on 2.2'*. HOWEVER, it'* remotely possible the Zilla may be back on a 2.0 this summer, so if that happens, I'll be OK. I have two 3.85'*, a 2.55, a 2.5, but only one 2.2 and one 2.0".

Hey Bill, could you spare a 2.5" for me for a small chunk of cash? lol As you know I am good to go down a size.

My LIM gaskets looked perfect too after about 134,000 miles. I didn't have the splitting on the end seals though. My lifter valley was pretty dark though, darker than I hoped to discover.

Wanna know how soft the sidewalls are? This vid is with them 'over-inflated' to 25psi (track pressure will be 16-18 psi):



And my latest acquisition......under 2 bucks ($38 ) !

But which car to put it on?

This one?

I didn't think this day would come. Now I see you've gone for easy power.

****, I thought you were talking about boost pressure. Cause if the tires still stick to the ground when you romp down 25 PSI, well HOLY ****. Both for sticking to the ground, and running 25PSI.

But how much are you running with a 2.0 pulley anyways?

Somebody didn't read the topic.

I have 2.5'* (one step down) on both cars right now. Both will be most likely running smaller at WCBF this year.

When I ran the 2.0 last year, I had no idea what I was running. The boost gauge was pegged to the stop constantly. I had no KR on a 90 degree day with 95 octane, and was probably running somewhere around 12-15psi. HOWEVER, I have ported heads now, along with a more agressively ported LIM, and 1.8 ratio rockers. Not to mention a much more free-flowing exhaust.......sometimes.
