So true!

Here's Chandler Bishops' basically stock EX "Turbo engine" [cam? ] 2 cabs... with a Stinger Dist. set for 140 specs and a single peashooter exhaust pipe and 2" muffler.

Great Aircraft combination! BUT he says in the car.... Engine pulls strong at lower rpm and Accelerates considerably better as well.

Maybe the NECC will have the drag races again so we can see how all the combos stack up.

Is that on Dynojet's accelerometer or their actual Dyno? I didn't even realize they made anything but accelerometers until I looked it up.

With an accelerometer you have to run it at full throttle through the gears and the machine calculates the power based on how fast it can accelerate the roller. A dyno can actually load the engine at any specific RPM to directly measure output.

Sorry Matt, I assumed the chart came from the OP and didn't notice it was you responding.
We all know what assuming gets you...
