well got most of what I wanted done accomplished today. Exceeded my goal of 825hp with the single carb. Had a stupid problem with the TR system so didn't get to run it today. Probably go back sometime in July and play for the day.
After we figured out the tunnel ram wasn't going to work we decided to put the single back on and do some more pulls. Dropped the 20/50 VR-1 oil and put in some Mobil 1 10/30 and then swapped out the 1,200 Domi and put on a 950HP to see what would happen. I'll post some pics of the charts now, if I have time tomorrow I'll scan a few and post them.
We ended up at 11.25:1 compression, started with 28* timing, went to 30 then 32* and kept it at 32* with the 91 octane. Made 13 pulls in all.
Here are some of the results:
comparison pulls of 1,200 vs 950 ultra HP carb:
950HP made peak trq of 685 lbs ft at 5,100 vs Dominator of 700 lbs ft peak at 5,100
the 950 made 803 at 6,700 for max hp vs 843 at 6,800 for the 1,200.
the 1,200 was pulling 1.8 " vac at 6,800 the 950 was pulling 2.5" at 6,800.
the Mobil 1 10/30 was worth 10 hp over the 20/50 VR-1 and 10 lbs ft at 5,100
I'll post some more info later. hopefully I can get my cell phone video posted.
