I forgot to get pics of the car in rego hi mode now its all back together ready for summernats. This morning we put the old girl onto jakes performance dyno to tune it up properly with the large cams, 15 minutes later on 15psi and with the variable cam gears on 0 an 0 it reeled off 405.2 rwhp. this is on caltex vortech just from the local servo just so i know when ever i drive it places its capable of taking most pump gasses. im very happy with this power and to drive it feels very strong but after the summernats when i start driving it around more i am going to dial in the cams and tune it up to around 22psi. i have also found with the larger rolling diameter of the 17x11's its very lazy on the road meaning in 5th gear at 100 its only revving to around 2400 rpm. this is even with the 3.9's it has so also in the new year i am going to put some 4.7's in it which i calculated to bring the revs up to around 3100 rpm. much better.

if anyone is down at the nats let come past say hi..

end update:D

Hey Aaron I did make the journey down to the nats from Nth Qld this year. I have to say the nats seems to have lost its flair from previous years. Ur car looked great got a heap of photos, young fella who is 7 loved it was good to see it in the flesh.

Bought a 72 1600 for the boy on the weeknd will have 2 post some photos (finally on broadband)

Good work on the car

Cheers
