Not too bad a result, but not too flashy either.
The Le Jetronic efi and its smelly AFM must go! Time for some programmable fuel + Ignition computer action, plus cam advance/retard for best width of power band, and she should be pretty close to flat 15s.

I'm guessing noone else went then. I was expecting someone to because it was the last chance until november that you could run at Willowbank! (Track resurfacing.)

I ran two fords that night - one beat me by 5 seconds :) And the other I beat by 1.5 seconds.

Cheers,

Dave

sounds like u need a cam and some headwork to get your max power up from 4100rpm.
even my long strokin ford 6 with a small wade cam has max at 4800rpm

I agree i have to loosen up the peak rpm performance, cos the powerband currently is a little too small for my liking.

The current cam is stated as having a powerband from 2000 to 4800, so i think there's something else limiting it a bit, but I'm sure it would benefit from a less "budget" type cam.

What revs does yours run out of puff?

Cheers,

Dave

i change at 5000 in first, and about 4800-4900 in all other gears. runs out of puff after those revs.

Mine has nothing useful after 4800rpm.

I would have thought with max power at 4800, you'd still have decent power until 5200 or so???
