this simuilates power from the motor. power at the wheels is unknown. this program is just an idea. if the engine isnt tuned by a dyno specialist, it could be off signifantly. and if spark isnt maximized, it will be lower also


0.060 didnt make much of a difference for me to repost a picture

I just want to know how does it drive/sound? It sounds like a peppy budget build. Would be sweet to get a manual valve body and some rear gears
