Ran it at 12% underdriven but a couple of times i sweapped the pulleys and it felt like I put a 100 shot on the truck. nothing like the sound and feel of one of those huffers on a small block.
Sounded like a fun truck!
One main reason I chose this car over another one other I was looking at
was that it did have a small block with aluminum heads. And also power steering and brakes.
The other car had a big block with an 8-71 and no power steering nor power brakes.
I can imagine it would been a hell of a workout trying to drive it. Not to mention
the car only made about 75 more HP than this one.
I have thought about changing pulleys. Car is at 11% underdriven at 9psi
It has a 38 tooth upper. Maybe running a 34 or even 32 tooth pulley with some race
gas might turn this thing into even more of a monster.
Car makes great power now and you are spot on ....there is NOTHING like the
sound and feel of a big blower .. Very Very Fun!!!!
