    Thanks Carl;) the 109 is Ok, but not so ok with the top speed. I think we can improve :) ?! The tune is well within safe, as it still fat and 27 degrees static on the mag. But something that cofuses me is the MAP????

    I think you might want to invest in a new tach. Yours has the needle bouncing all over the place with no relation to engine speed. :p

    But great run never the less.
     
  7. We actually never watch Tach just run till valves float, then shift huh Kjell.......

    by the way what a beautiful venue to run at!!!!

    Yes the tach is not working right:) But I'm a little stubborn, since I really like the Sun Blue-line tach's. I bought tis from the Hamb, and It's a NOS half sweep. I think the ideal solution would be a new bottom on the mag and run a Moroso mech. one. I'll settle for the shiftlight for now. It used to work, but as seen in the video, it flashes up from the start;)

    OK, I didn't understand a word.....I did see some guys having lots of fun! That's a nice sounding flattie. I know you probably posted it earlier but what does your dragster weigh? Cheers, Allan

    10371393_674770599225117_8562392802388722563_n.jpg You have probably right Carl;) I'll need to weigh it in. As I'm now hired to a Racing/speed shop, no problem. I might put the Sidewinder on the Dyno too:)
    Oh! We found out why the presssure guage showed 28 psi;) A small backfire when i lifted the throttle at the finnish-line:) Need to put a shim in the Idle bypass valve to make it stiffer. Should solve that:) Got a 20 psi reading at a 10.02 sec run, and that is what we expected:)

    You will get there with lower boost Carl:) We probably had been there with last years boost of 14-15 psi:) But nooo, we need more power;) I really do't know where 20 psi will get us? but we hope to see low 9 sec ET's:)

    Thanks Guys, sorry no New record on the 1320;/ But we got a decent 1/8 mile run. 6.1 sec 113 mph.before the blower snout axle snapped, and no pressure on the last 1/8th mile, rolled over the line for a 10.2 sec ET 90 mph. This weekend had it all, cool roadtrip, Meeting super Nice People, Cold beer, not soo god driving, rain, broke Down. But all in all a good weekend:)
