Damn, (davis419b)

You know your sh*t, it should not exceed 1150 at anytime, preferablie between 1,000 and 1,100 as a high temp reading.
Granted you can run faster if you run leaner but you better have a sponser, because you will melt down a lot of parts at a higher temp.

Zip.

I agree with Davis you have a miss in that combo, a worthy is a light car and that big motor should easily be a 4.6-7 car even with conv. heads. Shot us some more info on the combo.

The egt should be around 1150-1200 in the 1/4. I have noticed when using 2 different egt gauges/probes that it may be atleast a 100 different from the other. Just need to get close and tune from there.
