    Willis,
    Talked to Jim and went over Impeller with him.He told me, how many years you ran that mag. Dude Metal has a fatigue factor and should not get as old as you are!
    Glad to see you getting back with the program. I went over some nozzle factors you need to give thought to. Boost is going to be monster. Keep Dry- Dave.

    Bob,

    I remember when I first started in 2002. You dragged my butt all over the race course.

    That was more fun, the engine worked fine until I wanted more speed.

    Looks like this is going to work out for us, took the jet apart today.

    Needs some TLC to get back in the game.

    I recall Tom sending one back east with similar color scheme?

    Willis
    Yes, mine is an '03 as well. Keep up the good work and be safe out there.

    Del51,

    Thanks,

    We are going to take it slow with the boat runs. Have to get the boat to ride correctly before we can hammer on it.

    From the looks of Willis' engine, I would think this output was achieved at 22-25 lbs of boost. Just a guess on my part. The heads and intake appear to me like some new edelbrock high end stuff. I am very happy for that guy. Haas, I like turbo stuff too, no turbo shit will sound as sweet as this thing wound up or on the way to being wound up. Header costs for a turbo can be expensive and heavy. Mine are Real heavy, 25 lbs each and could be less but I am a lake guy. Turbos are more efficient, This setup is more simple. Sweet Engine Willis, Good luck and be safe.

    149 Tsunami at The Verbancic Brothers Dyno

    Hello People,

    Before I start the Dyno info, I want to thank Robert Johns for flying back in town for the dyno appointment.

    The Johns Race Team first experience at the dyno was not pleasant, and the anxiety from that first experience at the dyno was taking a large bite of my energy; getting started was a smooth transition from the taking the engine from the truck and mounting the dyno stand.

    George and Bob, from the Carb Shop, made the whole dyno experience seem second nature as they began to do what they do and the anxiety left as those two professionals began to work their skills and expertise.
    Bob and George are very intuitive and started to explain how the dyno process was going to unfold and what to expect. As a new customer to the dyno process, I was very appreciative to them for taking the time to educate the client on the processes and perform them in a very professional manner.

    The first pull was predictable and the tuning began.
    George was apprised of how the engine was expected to perform and Bob, Willis, Kevin, from CSU, began to make the changes and adjustments required to get that performance.

    There were a few setbacks and Bob Verbancic fixed them so we could finish the dyno process and get those monster horse power numbers.

    With that being said, now we will need to find and impeller that will handle 2000 plus horse power.

    I want to thank CSU, Kevin for working his magic with the restrictions I asked for and delivering the power.
    Bob at the Carb Shop for doing what was required to finish the dyno session.
    George for listening to my needs as to where the horse power will kick in and he, Bob and Kevin making it happen.

    The dyno secession was stopped before maximum power levels were achieved, the graph just kept going up!

    Special thanks to engine builder for the horse power
