We couldn't test it at the track because we couldn't fit real tires on it. So we tested it on the street
There was one main thing wrong and that was the studs. l19s were not really l19s, they were normal ARPs. I wasn't going to let him go ripping around on borrowed time with those ARPs knowing that they will break, lift a head and kick a rod. You know how much that **** sucks first hand. He thought he had good studs, I made him check
HP on the dyno isn't much, but being able to run at the power level made on the dyno is everything. Lots of guys make a number and then turn it down because its on the edge... hence the MPH some of the 600-700whp cars trap around here. This car can make passes at the power level it dynoed.. I could have posted a 850-875hp dyno chart easily. I know it can make passes at 800whp so I left it there.
