Default 2 days before dyno.....

Haven't started the car in 4 months, there is an inch of dust on it, leaves in the cowl.

Fuel jet needs to be swapped out for the N2O
New Fuel filter with E85 element needs to be installed
Gas tank is bone dry
Need to load my E85 tune
Tires are low
Fuel pump wiring needs to be completed.

Yep, another normal pre-dyno checklist for me.

Got everything done except putting gas in it and starting it, LOL.
Pulled all the plugs, cleaned them and checked the gap....all still exactly at .022.

I even extended 2 coil pack wires so I can pull them out of the coil cover, then reinstall it whenever I have it on the dyno.

With the E85, maybe ill actually drive it a little this year?

Where are you having it dyno'd? Do you buy the E85 by the drum or just get whatever the pump has in it?

I only ask because I am considering running E85 (street) / Alcohol (race) on the blue one this year.

I buy the pump stuff. Its only 77% right now too, but it will still make awesome power.

I really think that once you use E85 and see its potential, you wont even mess with the alcohol.

Ive read that the E85 or E98 from Ignite Fuels is the cats meeeeow!

E98 is tempting. My injectors are at Blower Drive Service right now getting run through a die so they will screw into my injector plate. Switched to a bug catcher for this year and dumping the fuel down the top of the blower. Whichever way I go, I will be buying it by the barrel so I know what it going in it.

Good luck at the dyno!

All you do is buy the 15 dollar test kit off ebay John.
Bu a drum or 2 (empty) and fill them both at the pump before the summer blend goes away.

Wish I stop by and see this monster on the dyno considering Deans is 15 minutes away. But a death in the family is preventing me from that. Good luck Zack. Hope to see some numbers later.

Marauder Failed but Kurgan did a great job.
Car made about 120rwhp less than it should have...551 then 521 then 528... at 23 psi and 20 degrees of timing!!!!
At first it was spinning the.tires slightly so we sat in the.trunk. fixed.that problem but no.gains.
Based on the.extremely choppy graph(which I will post later) it is indicative of a.drivetrain problem.
The engine runs great, plugs looked great but.something is preventing the power from making it to the wheels.
On the way to.the.dyno the.car shook pretty good anything 60mph or above. I attributed it to old tires...but on the.way home I really paid attention, and it.got worse. It has a bad vibration when its under load...enough.for me to feel it in my legs.
No its not a coil pack. Engine runs fabulous.
I can't wait to getsome time and have another trans guy evaluate the 'AMAZING' BC AUTO trans that's in it....with about 600 miles on it

I will guess "crappy torque converter."

Still good numbers. Time for another TH400!

Well I hope it's not the trans or any other parts from BC Automotive.
Remember Fordnut? He still has'nt changed his sig after all this time.

Good Luck with the repair

Dang was hoping for the best results for you Zack, the 4r70 is a great trans but behind a 4500 lb car and big power the TH400 or 4L80 trans seems to be one of the best options. Sorry man

Damn, you got a lot more miles out of yours than I got.

Still loving my 4R100. Shift and lockup are setup so it feels like a 5 speed manual.

Man. I was hoping to see some bigger numbers. That's too bad Zack. Hope you figure out your drive train issue. But like you said. You've got the Cobra!!
