Yep, my buddy Scott (Lake Effect) on here, best of 107 with a 353 and prochargers, safer tuning runs 104 now..... all the time

In the early 90's it was only 116.75mph.

1995 a Fountain ran 123.91 I believe.

I think it was mid 90s when James had it. Build a 42 Fountain w 900s next that was a 99 or 2000.
Reggie came to the pond to show him how to Drive it!!

ROFL that is funny lol.
I'll be sure to look for that when I see it lol.
I am very curious to the answer for this contradiction of 500EFI's and 104MPH; it just can't happen.
