The dyno sheet finally appeared and it pretty much what I originally expected. A couple of things don't make sense on it so I will not waste time posting it so folks can chip at the obvious. There is no a/f reading so I can't really know what the tuner is doing. I HATE working remotely, but don't want to spend any more money on this exercise.

Torque - between 2000 rpm and 7000 rpm over 500 ft lbs, with a max of 520. The typical Terminator with blower table-top line.
The rwhp is either 575, or 603 ??? I will believe the 603 if it spins on the 3-4 shift. It was already spinning on the launch, 1-2, and 2-3, but only chirping on the 3-4 -- with 20 psi in the tires. Other folks who run the 1/4 mile are reporting that the West Coast 11.5 rules are spreading across the country and since it was under 11.5 easily when it had 130 fewer rwhp and 70 fewer torqies, I think it is "fast enough". These little 90 inch wheelbase cars are pretty crappy drag cars anyway.

There are 5 other CSX's at the storage facility and the manager said he is sure a couple of them would be up for some lapping on the road course. Unless they have modded their suspensions like I have, it should be fun. I just need to coordinate it. :think:

It had plenty of power before the tune, so I am expecting good power now. The only question left is how it manages heat on the race track. If I circle at a decent pace without smoking up, life will be good. And this loooong project will be over. Then I can just drive it without thinking about what's next. That would be nice. :whistle:

"There are 5 other CSX's at the storage facility" should have read "There are 5 CSX's (Shelby continuation series Cobras) at the storage facility"

The SPF will move to its new home in Hastings, Nebraska on Nov. 9 (knock on wood). It could be an interesting drive from N Colorado to Hastings, depending on the weather. :-D
