    Just started tuning my NMRA True street car. Before you say it I know its ugly but it is going to the body shop after its done being tuned. This is only the second dyno pull which yielded 1075 rwph @ 7000 rpm. The air fuel was only 10.8 - 11.0 and only 23* total timing with 21 psi peak boost. The dyno graph was still climbing so we think it should make power to around 8000 rpm. As crazy as it may sound, this car will be street driven to our local track events as well as true street events. We plan on making it to NMRA in Georgia in April. I will post our progress as we go if anyone is interested.

    Thanks guys, I'll keep you updated as we make some progress. I'm currently waiting on a new converter for the car and should have that in a week or so. Then we will be able to do some more tuning.

    Joe- be sure to look for us @ NMRA Georgia. We will have the grill and smoker going all weekend just like @ MIR last year. Do you plan on running True Street?

    nice!
    ever thought about running an inlet pipe to the wiper cowl? pretty low pressure up there and it should allow you to suck plenty of air

    I have thought about it but I would need to cut a lot out of the valve cover and with only a 2.5" cowl there just isn't a lot if room. I also like being able to get o he plugs wires and valve covers without taking anything apart.

    A/w is under the dash on the passenger side. currently have a v24 x trim. Still have plenty of room for the passenger as it will be street driven.

    If you pump it out of the vp drum. Lol. It's race gas for now, once we are done we will write a pump gas tune up for it. As soon as I get my new converter we will
    Keep tuning.

    A friend of mine and I have a saying: "Never trust a beat up old Fox at the race track.". That car is the perfect example! Pure awesome!
