We took three days off to drive 1600 miles and see some old friends, do a little work, and learn about the gen III hemi. Now it's back to work.

Got some much needed interior parts at the semi local bone yard. It was only a 125 mile round trip. Ah the perks of living in the country

A friend of mine went to the Holley school for FI and now he thinks the Holley stuff could, in a pinch, run the space station. I'm going to need a catch-can for my brain.

Only had to make a few parts to get heads on the flow bench. I dont know how good they will run but the new castings are pretty consistent port to port. I did pick up some flow on the exhaust side. I got the header flange to match the port better.

Tomorrow I will be playing with alcohol. I will check all the runners and chamber volumes for correct cc. Now is the time to get it right. That way in tear down I can be fearless because it will comply with the rules. Everyone knows that almost right is still wrong. Not to be confused with "The Daily Ledger".

Larry, where can we get a good set of headers? Picked up 23 HP today and never fired the car up yet! What you going to use for spark plugs?

I have that info in shop, I will text to you. I have set of Kooks SS and MR2 headers, I will keep the best one and sell the other one.

I know the feeling 392 @ 400 from MoPar, NHRA adjustment before first run 392 / 400 now 392 @ 430

Is it an over kill to have Kirke racing seats with a "Rich Corinthian Leather" seat cover? Just asking!

Pored alcohol all day and only lost 1/2 a qt. The heads are legal right out of the box. The runners are good and the chamber is big 5 to 6 cc. I will run it that way and then recheck before we make an adjustment.

Does anyone how much to cut to reduce chamber size by 1 cc?

Thanks

Normally, .006 per cc is fairly close.
