    Took one of the shop cars down to the dyno last night to get her dialed in. This particular run was with 11.3 to 1 a/f. We made a pass right after this with a smaller fuel jet, but couldn't get a reading because the torque hit spun the tires on the roller so bad. Anyway...details on the car...

    NX Nozzle EFI Kit

    who said anything negative about LS1 owners? Sounds like someone has an infiriority complex. I wish i could get my motors to respond so well with so little money put into them.

    First, I'm not sure where you get off assuming I know nothing about engine dynamics, but lets ignore that for a second. All I asked was who did the heads and what were the numbers and you had to bring the smartass comment... why?

    no such complex here :wavey:

    because most novice "racers" or wrench turners like to ask "what are the flow numbers" thinking that more flow is better, and that is often NOT the case. Cylinder heads can have the same flow numbers put perform completely differnet. you have to look at the total package.

    thus it's nice to see flow numbers along with the port volumes so you can tell what sort of velocities they are seeing.

    besides, sometimes it's just nice to see flow numbers to start with and then go from there. :wavey:
