Thank you everyone for the wonderful comments. I am really proud of the look and the performance of the motors. I put every thing I have into each and every motor so it is great when it all comes together.
It wasn't so much the elevation as it was absolutely horrible weather to make power. It had been raining for 3 days straight and we were pulling air through an open door about 3 feet from the motor. We were actually pulling rain in with the blowers in the room. After a pull, the side of the motor was soaking wet. The sensor for air temp and humidity was right on top of the carb, so I am confident in the correction. The barometer for the 3 days never got above 28.40. Coming from La., you get used to big corrections with the weather there, usually 100 degrees with 200% humidity in the summer. The ultimate dyno is the boat, and I am confident that the motors will do what they are supposed to do as far as speed is concerned.
The lifters in these are Morel's. I have had excellent luck with them in the past. By the way, that is a REAL one year warranty, no BS. I stand behind them 100%.
It has and will continue to be a long, tough road. I have had so much happen in the last year, it has got to be about time for something good to happen. Thanks for your concern, I really do appreciate it.
Thanks to all, Eddie
