Default Running Waterfoul's Engine Sat.

Barring any unforeseen issues, Waterfoul and I plan on doing the run-up on his engine here at my house Saturday morning. Anyone who's interested is welcome to stop by. We'll have a box of doughnuts (not the kind with the plastic chocolate frosting either; the real, genuine fresh ones!) and coffee (maybe even hazelnut). Stop in if you're in the neighborhood.

Good luck guys. Give me general directions. I have to clear my lot that afternoon but may be able to sneak over. Thanks and remember to put oil in it. And don't let mike be in charge of the drain plug. Remember the drive issue?

Got my fingers crossed Guys!

Let's hope it's right on the money...If your desktop dyno numbers are any indication, it should be a fun ride!

Dyno,

Have you run your engines / boat yet?

If so what kind speeds are you hitting
providing it's broke in.

Thanks

Dyno had a bulletproof season last year with his upgraded engines. I think he's been running 75 mph on the gps.
Mitch, Riley Street eats of 120th Avenue to Sunrise Ave. It's the first street east of 120th. Turn right (south) and go to 2946 and look for my white suburban and the grey 24' car trailer.

Crazy,
Are you guys going to dyno the motor or just break it in and install it? Would be interesting to see the real numbers.

Paul

We're just going to run it for camshaft break-in. I agree that it would be neat to dyno it but $300 for the dyno run isn't in the budget. But we can still stand around drinking coffee and eating donuts while it pounds away on the floor.
