That'd be Emmett.. Firebird.. think the only NHRA track in the state.. might be one in..Pocatello as well. But don't think so.

Yes Kevin I will call you probably friday around 5ish when tech starts. Maybe we could meet up for dinner or something, its going to be a long drive! I have one small problem with the car (which is a MAJOR problem to fix) and im going to be keeping a close eye on it, so if it holds up I will see you this weekend.

Dyno'd 510WHP last night on only 18PSI and we only ran it up to 5600RPM's. Thats 14PSI LOWER than my last tune that I hit only 476WHP on. We also blew my new cometic copper two piece gasket to shreds... I will have photos on my blog tomorrow night sometime. I did another head job last night and I finished up at 730AM with the car in perfect running condition. I had to be at work by 8am so I have had no sleep. I think I know what "dedication" is now. The head gasket was aweful and i highly reccomend everyone stay away from them. I didn't open the packaging up to inspect that copper gasket before I was ready to drop it on the block and when I saw it I was immediately unhappy. The gasket lasted just over 90 miles. Major disappointment.

I almost forgot... huge shout out to a few people:

-My mom for holding things last night when I told her to hold them, cleaning tools, and grabbing me the fucking thirteen about two hundred times! She also drove up to Seattle to meet Hunter to pick up the parts I needed from him!

-Hunter and R&H Garage in Seattle - Hunter met up with my mom at like 10:30 or 11:30 at night to bring me a new gasket, filter, and coolant. It was the nicest thing and I really appreciated the help!!

-Autobahn Specialists in Tacoma WA - Jeff is awesome and is understanding of just how many intake manifold gaskets one girl can need and is always making sure I have a spare!

- Horsepower Connections - Im happy they havent kicked me out of the shop for breaking every time I am there, and THANKS for always leaving me to work at night so I can get it fixed.

All the a/f looked good so we made a run..... MAX HP poped up on the screen as 510 and we were like holy %$#%?#@!!!!! Its so smooth and happy now. Its a totally new car. Im going to be bringing it home in 25 minutes.

All you need is a short block to get the 2.3 parts... I found one for 350 bucks and just put in new bearings and rings... You have a block to rebuild? That is the way to go in my opinion. New bearings and seals and timing chains and guides and then hone the cylinders and put in new rings...

510 whp assuming 15% loss through the drive train puts you at 600 crank horsepower . I forget what we accepts as standard drive train loss though so lets say 10% to 15% gives you a crank range of 566 to 600.

Congrats Kaylan. Get it up and fully running on max boost and this will become interesting to see the WHP.
