I've been a little busy lately on a few upgades. As some of you know, Landy put in Levi's old Novi 1200 into my car while I was out of the country and the motor didn't last but 1 pull. This is what it looked like.


Then, after that motor went south, I picked up a low mileage MM motor and it stayed in only for a short time while I was waiting for this to be built over in Cali.





A MMR-600. So the cleaning, scrubing and powdercoating began and we had this sitting in the driveway.





Then after a lot of work and help from Landy and Ron (BC4E) it ended up coming out like this.





I really learned a lot about my car and it was enjoyable getting all the parts and getting everything together for it to come out so great. Ron and I had a big puzzle to put together. Good thing we had his car parked behind mine so we could reference it when we put it back together. Thanks again Ron, and Landy.

Welcome to the internet.
Thanks I know what it means. Just scratching my head on the inpersonable reply.

I guess the answer is no?
The answer is yes, ICEVEX A2A with a NOVI 1200 Self contained running 9LBS. She should be around mid 400's ( others with similar set ups have gotten these numbers). After the break in etc. I will be putting in a MAFia MAF and getting a new dyno tune to dial it in. Similar set up as DR does. Your question/answer is, as if you never shared a beer with me or something?

Thanks for the comments.

9psi will probably make 450.
With the built engine, less.

Its easy to make power on the dyno with these cars.
Put them on the street and they ping like crazy, remove 3 degrees of timing and its fine.
Bye Bye 30rwhp.

What's up with all the ish reply's?
400ish rwhp
500ish future rwhp
12ish in the 1320

How about some accurate numbers instead of the guesswork?

After I break it in, get a new dyno, and get down the 1320, I won't know exactly until then. Just speculation at this point on what others have got with a similar set ups.

Good deal. That one should last a good long time.
I remember being at pic#4 with mine and asking myself why do I do this stuff again?
Have you put a smaller pulley on the blower yet?
