    Yeah that is kinda low. Even for an engine with a giant cam.

    Pretty sure it's a stock cam, thinking it's the valves as the oil is still clean and I changed that almost 2 months ago, nothing is being burned drastically, think it leaks more..LOL. Engine feels like it's got a slight miss when its under load, but plugs look ok. I've got some other heads to throw on it once I run it across johnny's dyno whenever that gets back in operation.
    Looks to be at least 50PSI low

    Until you tear into it and find out for sure it's hard to say. If it were valves I'd think the numbers would be more erratic.

    I've got this turd in the garage now, putting the 4.56 rearend, and Z-spec trans in it, and aluminum driveshaft. None will really change MPH much, but should help ET. Won't get it to the track this week due to the storm, so will update when I'm able as to how it runs.

    I'm sure the heat isn't helping with motivation.

    Kevin compiled videos from 21 June, it was hot, and yeah, it's a lot easier to sit inside in the A/C when the heat index is 100+

    Did a search for that paint code and found this site, maybe a cream color would be more unique than sand beige. Guy in Pensacola has a coupe painted sand beige now.

    Update on the car too, pulled the 3.73 geared rear out and put in one with a 4.56 gearset, and a rebuilt 31 spline track lock with C-clip eliminators. Waiting for a track day where weather will cooperate, looks like next Tuesday will be first day.
