Default Trip to Tyler Crockett's

Last Friday I went to Tyler Crockett's. It was Good Friday so a lot of people were there picking up stuff or dynoing. "Traffic Light" Ed Smith was there telling us stories about what he did with the bus after Kart to Kart. OSO member MattbMiller was there dynoing his engine. 420+ hp out of a warmed up 330 hp 454. A guy drove from his engine builder in Chicago to dyno his rebuilt engine, only to discover after taking off the plastic wrap, his builder forgot to put on the intake plenum among other things. An entertaining afternoon.

Tyler is a great guy.Don't see him as much since our friend Curt passed away, unless I show up for some races. He would come to Cola town to party and always took care of Curt's boat. Some of the best built and most reliable motors built on the market.
