Re: Wiring issue with Low Fuel Relay plug

Being stuck in the garage puts some big limits on tuning. The only other thing you can do is to verify the mechanical advance curve. You can measure this with your timing light.

Re: Engine Tuning

With that much cam I would bring the idle up by 100 RPM. Are you getting any pre-ignition? Then you need to look for lean surge at cruise. This is at maybe 45 to 50 mph on level ground. What you are looking for is any surge or hunting.

Boss Eliminator sighted arriving at Barrett Jackson in Scottsdale

One of the Boss 302 Eliminators has landed! Debbie and I were picking up badges and saw one of the Eliminators on a trailer behind a truck rolling on to the site. I am not sure how to tell these two apart just yet: Lot 801 https://barrettjacksoncdn.azureedge.net/staging/carlist/items/Fullsize/Cars/2...

Re: "Performance Axle" item on invoice?

You have to understand how the ordering system works to fully grasp what was going on. The standard axle for an Eliminator is the 3.25.
