So I switched to coil on plug.

Was you still using the Mallory 685? If so, I  wish I had known. I just bought a three step and timing ctontroller.

Yep. It's now in my left over parts box. I switched to a MSD 7 box to see if that helped before the COP conversion . It didn't help even with shielded wire...that's when I knew something else was up.

I'd rather be a fool who is loyal to his friends than a POS that jumps ship to save face. We were wrong in the end, but nobody can ever call us disloyal. I can live with that.

Woody and I ended up with 445cid small block. Had a nitrous cam ground. It's mated to a modified T56 Magnum with dual clutch. It's got some boogie to it..even when it would fall on its face at 4800. Timing and fuel maps were all over the place.

Glad to hear you got it sorted out.  Are you going back to the dyno?

For sure. Tuning an E85 car with a cam this large is not a picnic. I think I have the idle and hot start issues sorted now and it runs and drives well enough to strap it back down. I am used to tuning on the track...but with computers it seems way easier to do it on a dyno.

Hey MM , so how's the car? I'm behind the times so no more turnover vert? Or ?

Always enjoyed following your projects
