June 09
Meet tempest told me to get my arse to EFI performance
Very low boost on dyno was told to look for boost leek.
Found a 30 cm split in cooler

July 09
Made 331hp @ 6800rpm and 1200lb of torque on 18psi
Was suggested I check cam timing.
I retarded cam timing by 6 degrees.

August 09
Made 384hp @ 7200rpm 18psi
To willow bank says whity
And I blew an axel on the start line
And bumped my bar on the gate on the way out
to shed with you bad bad car.

January 10
New axels.

February 10
Back on the dyno
Smc warning low voltage and running way lean (not enough power at fuel pump)
Replace batteries and alt tested fine, all looks well.

March
Smc shows low batt volt
EFI suggest not running on the dyno if lean out occurs at high rpm
(Better to be safe then sorry)

To date
Smc reads 1 volt less then what it is actually seeing
(Looks like a fault will have to send away)
