The progress of my Type 4 will hinge on heads and exhaust.

I hope to get there. It would be great to have a strong Type IV showing in 2008, mine was the only one to dyno last year, I think....

Nigel, what power did you put down?

If there is a strong T4 showing, I MAY convert.

drivablity is the biggest reason to convert. after nigel drove my car at bug-a-palooza the first thing he said was it seemed like forever b4 the thing wanted to go. btw that was the 2275's last drive b4 it got on a boat to the land down under.movin on to bigger and better things. its all about the torque.

Pete,
If I remember correctly it did 128HP at the wheels.
It is the same car and engine that I drove to Savannah from Atlanta and back (250 miles each way) without missing a beat in 90+ degree heat.
This is with a 2270 built in 2002 with 8.5:1 CR.
Laz brings up a good point - it is very driveable - it can do 30 in 4th and then keeps pulling until you let off.

Pete, no I still have the 2275 and it is for sale. I'm sure we can get you a ride in a T-4 powered vehicle.
We just got back from a brutal road trip to Baton Rouge delivering a Bus, Herbie Jr. go kart and fit a Tilton # pedal set w/3 master cylinders in Herbie X. Dave (Herbie X's owner) said he will try to clear a spot in his calender to drive up for Dyno Day.

Accomodations? I saw where a bunch said they were staying in Perry? Looks quite a ways from the dyno event, definately going in the wrong direction for anybody coming in from the north. Why not stay in Peachtree City?

Days Inn or Best Western in Peachtree City were the ones for Dyno Day last year. I don't have phone info for them but I'm sure they have info online.
