Test session at Royal purple this Saturday. My new HP XP is not really working properly . The o2 sensor was not working properly and and was telling me it needed fuel . I added 3 jets to the front and made a few passes . Reading the plugs I pulled those three out and then took 5 out of the rear . It was still rich . Rich to the point it was starting to hurt the ring pack . I changed the plugs and stuck my old 750HP back on it and bam .

I also had the alternator lock up last sunday in the semi finals . I fabbed a new driver side low mount and replaced the alt under warranty . I also managed to get the belt size right the first try .
Image
Here are the plugs . The strap looks like I have a bit to much timing in it to me and I'm was rich.
Image
End result and this was without the alt charging which I fixed tonight . We run 2 day races the next 2 weekends and I think I have a truck that will compete if the driver shows up .

Had a decent weekend @ HPT Texas truck invasion . Headed out Friday night and loaded up the Yellow truck . Had a buddy of mine Jay came by and grabbed my blue street truck . We went out to test Friday night then stay the night at the track and race Saturday and come home . Friday night we unload and the Blue truck goes 11.19 off the trailer! Mind you this is leaving at 2000 on a footbrake and shifting @6000 . This converter will go 2800 and it can be shifted at 65-6600 . I ask the tech guy if they will let us run 11.0 index tomorrow and get the big NO. No bars etc. I crank 16 turn in the restrictor plate and 11.93 ....we are in . Yellow truck I moved the 2 step to 4400 and the shift point to 7400 and it goes 10.05 . This race is .400 pro tree , so I swap to the reactor button. Thinking with a bit of spray if needed we should be good down there . We ended up doing real well . Won both 12.0 index and 10.0 index.

The time slip from the final . This was against a super gas 9.90 truck with all the electronics. I scrubbed 3 or 4 mph on this pass just to make sure I didn't break out . I was on a 10.03 by split time . I pulled bottled water tire pressure gauges , anything I could find to try and get there . Pay out was good .

It is an ebay fiberglass scoop epoxy bonded to a factory steel hood and then body worked.

got a couple of weeks off from racing and decided I better fix the dipstick and a very small oil leak . Decided to buy a small cell phone bore scope for $16 with free shipping off ebay . SO I snapped some picks and did a leak down on the motor . All the holes were 100% by 28 to 30 psi , so leak down looks good . It looks like my big kit was a bit hot by the looks of a couple pistons and #8 has a pretty good scratch in the wall , but not bad enough to tear down for sure . I have a touch of oil smoke out of both side with the passengerside being a bit worse . About to close it up with new pan gasket , oil dipstick and fresh oil . We race a double header on the 16th of april and the next weekend I think I'm going to put the restrictor plate on it and run 7.0 index in the future . Pics of the inspection if anybody cares to check it out .

That is a great tool for $16. It will give you peace of mind or tell you the bad news. 8)
