i went around the block a few times today-- its revs up fine with no load but under load it needs some more fuel so gonna call Hok now that i have the wideband and see if he can come go for a drive n tune.

its LOUD.. way louder than i thought it may be but i guess HP = Noise.. it sounds like a muscle car.
at idle its not that loud - but when you put your foot into it the air from the stacks is sweet.. i dont know what ends louder..

I'd put it in, looks incomplete with the holes not filled. Don't forget that the fender to hood gap let's quite a bit of heat out.

Looks really good! Hope you upgraded the ignition system to keep up with the fuel side of things.

well today was the first REAL drive-- this summers weather so sucks LOL-- took a friend for a cruise -- its amazing how smooth it drives--

installed new Ricks tank- man that is a NICE piece of stainless steel.. finally finished the electronic speedo setup and now i have a gas guage that works on the SW guages..

some small bits to finish and then prob to tamer for a a/c charge.. IF we ever get some heat and need it !
