That car is gonna be a rocket, Great build ! How much spray ya gonna put to it?
some motors are more efficient than others in simple terms, camshaft, combustion chamber, and compression will play a huge part in this, as well as your cylinder heads flow potential. the systems will be somewhat efficient and accurate to a certain point then of course after that point of big gains you will find that you start throwing the kitchen sink at it then all the sudden your only picking up hundreths of et and all the sudden the math doesn't add up any more thats just the way it works the motor will let you know when its done or can't take anymore, lol!very interesting Lou --- so if i want to have 1200hp total and i have a 800hp motor i will need say like 600hp of the spray to make 1200 ??? not 400.......----why is that ??? sorry to hi-jack your thread
so when you are on the spray Lou are you going to rev her to 8,000 ??
i pull it out when it breaks, lol! i generally do a thorough leak down and compression test after every outing keep an eye on all the valve springs check for signs of head gasket failure and always look inside your oil filter too and see whats going on there. if i should make it through the season without major carnage it gets honed, re-rung and all new bearings.Lou, this build is very intriguing --- so what is the maintence schedule on an engine program like this .... every event , once every 10 runs ??? just tring to figure which way i want go go as far as a top end ...... thxs for all the answers to my stupid questions
