wow thanks guys

the tarp gets puffy past 100. I only use it for cruise-ins.
peel the magnetic stars off and its just an old green beater :twisted:

I dynoed it in February during an open house "dyno day"
and had some mediocre results. 667/572 @ 18psi on pump gas.
the tuneup didnt work on the dyno. it went 9:1A/F past 5000
I have since ditched the flowmasters in favor of Dynomax bullets
and switched from M/T sportsmans to M/T S/R. that should get the rolling resistance down and free up the turbos a bit. it sure feels like it did.
I may run it through the 1/8 before winter, and try the dyno again.

if I keep it I'll have 4 cars and one cramped ass garage.
my dad gave me the nomad 20 years ago and its not for sale.
I bought the truck as partially completed roller 7 years ago and its pretty much run its course. its better suited as a dusty conversation piece for some old fart. :lol: probably safer there too
