JSELander I was looking over your mods, you have a very nice engine setup currently. I do have a question, why did you delete the AC? Down south where I live it gets very hot and I prefer to have my AC, yes even on my old 77 it still works. Any estimates on what the future mods you mentioned will increase the HP and Torque to?

The AC compressor seized on me a few thousand miles ago. For awhile I wanted to take out the Air Pump, so when i did it I looked to see how easy it would be to take out the entire AC system. It was quick and easy to do, and took out about 35-40 pounds of non-functioning equipment.

To answer your other question: I used the Dyno 2000 program for an estimate of the HP/TQ numbers, the numbers spit out ~425HP/450TQ at the crank.

My goal is to get to 13 seconds flat, and maintain daily driveability. I think this setup will get me there.
