Got one of Jay's Super Cat engines on the dyno last night,trufully
this morning 1:30 AM we made the first pull. Ken Fluke @ FLUKE PERFORMANCE
made a comment that the engine was REALLY REALLY FAT(to much fuel).
We called it quits until today.

I promised Ken I would not give out the EXACT HP #. But I can tell you this 700+
He retuned the carburater today and it's running SWEET! He has a couple of other tricks up his sleeve. The true test is out on the race course. Bob&Jay flew in today to check out how things are coming along and were very impressed. Trim tabs get installed tommorrow. I also heard from my buddy Jeff @ C.M.I. he assured me the headers would show up on time. THANKS!!!

Thanks for the updates. This is a great story to follow...
Looks like things are moving along rather well.

Best of luck!

Whats up with the Speedo ? Is this a pleasure boat ? No race boat has a speedo. Try GPS !!!!

After the motor is ready, you need to dyno with wet headers, like the ones on the boat and all the belts on the front of the motor.

You will be suprised how much HP you lose.
