Went to the dyno today

i was up at Pete's shop today for a tune on the nitrous. car put down 492rwhp/499rwtq off the nitrous and 580rwhp/677rwtq on the spray. we tuned it down a little by pulling 2 degrees of timing and the finaly numbers were 563rwhp/683rwtq. i'm going to ned tomorrow to see how it will run.

on the way to the dyno i saw a alpine gree 96/97 bird with aftermarket wheels, dual exhaust and a rear torsion brace. it had a tccoa sticer on the driver side rear 1/4 window. anyone from here?

yea i got the email, thanks man. i just got back from the track now, been there since this morning. only got 2 runs it was busy as hell. my best pass was 11.2 @ 128. my bottle heater wasnt working so pressure was around 800 psi and i dont have my window switch in so i was granny shifting it. i had to pedal it through 1st and second. the car has 10's in it @ 130+ easily. i'm gonna see if i can get the bottle heater straighened out and the window switch in for next weekend.
