Way too slow Brad.

Canít rush these things, not when dealing with new paint anyway.

Not much been happening with my car lately. I have just been trying to clock up a few miles before winter sets in.
I am pleased with the new ignition system and how my EFI tune is. I have spent a lot of time working on the tune and think it's as best I will get it now while keeping it relatively conservative and safe.

Below are YouTube links.
The first one was when I put it on a hub dyno. The engine went a bit too rich during part of the pull but still managed 465/465 at the hub. I was data logging the run so it was easy to overlay the results over the fuel map and lean this section of the map up a bit.
I haven't had it back on the dyno since changing the ignition and finishing the tune.

The second video is when I was leaving my mates business. He had never seen the car before and was quite wrapped in it.

Thanks. I would like to do a 69 based on a Roadster Shop chassis, Dynamic Corvette front and rear clips and LSX powered. Not sure if or when this will happen though!!!
Currently working on a 28 Chev roadster pickup. I am keeping this one stock. I am in no real hurry working on this and just recon parts as I am stripping them from the car.

Thanks Craig, there was a bit of a stumble where the engine went overly rich but I have since sorted that out.
Your car is coming along nicely.
