Alright then, it will be fun and it will be close!

I'm at 3785 with me in the car, not quite 3800 (Rob was rounding up)

Yes indeed, RobertP can build 'em. He isn't called the "Carolinas Crew Chief" for nothing!

Thanks. Actually it still has the stock, iron pumpkin (with 3.73's inside).

Yea, I'll get around to getting it dynoed as soon as I get a chance.

RobertP calculated my HP, based on the weight and my times, to be around 380. He and Hans dynoed at 370 and 373 HP respectively with basically the same set up that I have. So, I should be right in the range of 370 to 380 HP.

my new cam setup with the mph i pulled shows to be in the 388 rwhp range remeber Ron hp is the speed your car pulls out the big end not the time so just remeber that, the more hp the more mph your car will have on the big end, but not always a faster time thats reflected by the 60ft time etc im gonna try my darndest to get in the 116 range im only a mph off so i think i can do it
