    Engine Placement?

    For some reason, my engine/transmission sits further back in the rear cross member than it should. With the transmission crossmemebr installed after lowering the engine / trans into the tunnel, I have to “work” with the engine mounts to line up the bolt holes and get them threaded. It’s...

    BE Calculated Horsepower and Stuff

    I kinda feel like a newbie even bringing this up, but has anyone else paid attention to the BE calculated HP logs? I’ve kinda kept an eye on them over the years and noticed that they probably aren’t that far off based on my 1/4mi times and now off my recent dyno run. The log I took during the...
