I understand the concept of using a Dyno to rate an engine but nothing beats time on the track to really let you know what you've got.

Bob, That's what I wanted to hear

You & Dave can make this happen

After all this work a 10.99 from the Bullet is something you will remember for a lifetime & don't matter if it's you or Dave in the seat.

Best of luck from the left Coast & stay healthy.

Got that center carb rebuilt yet? Fall is fading fast.

Want to make that drive way test before that white stuff arrives.

Left Coast don't get much of the white stuff.

The 3 two barrel set up is done and runs well. Got to fine tune the idle but that isn't very important.
Driver Dave came over and did some driveway testing. It launches very hard on the trans brake. The question is will the third carb restore the top speed? We'll find out next spring as we are having the possibility of snow this weekend. That's it for our drag racing season. The scoop base had to be redone to fit 3 carbs. I extended the scoop with a little "flair".
This winter I'll put a better fuel pump on it, relocate the trans brake button and do some smoothing on the lower intake casting. There's injector bosses (they are plugged with pipe plugs now) that intrude into the ports. I'll remove the plugs and epoxy the holes shut and grind the protrusions away.

Well Bob very glad that you guys had a chance to make a few driveway hits before the weather put a stop to your race work. Extra glad that Dave had a chance to try the 3x2 setup with the trans brake, sounds like the Bullet is good with the TB & new convertor. I think you will be real happy with the 3x2 plenum setup and your top end speed should be fine.

Good buddy, this is what racers do, you are on the right track to get that 10.99. With the hard leave your 60 ft time will drop and that is ET that you can not leave on the table. Stick with it this winter on your mods and be ready for spring. Stay well and I hope you have a mild winter.
