Who knows, dynos can't be relied upon ;)

I looked into their exhaust port a while back and it does seem to offer a decent chuck more area over Racing Beat's templ9s, on the surface at least.

It'll probably be standing for a month or so, hence the reason why the liberal amounts of vaseline and oil you can never have too much lubrication right :)

Re: Carl's Pettit Project MKII

Well there should be....33% more surface area and they are geared to give 9-11PSI which us up from the 6-8PSI from the original set up. So along with all the porting, lightweight flywheel, light weight pulleys, full balancing and other mods this should go quite well im expecting 300ish at the wheels

Great job on the exhaust Pete! Looks really nice! Just goes to show what can be achieved over here with a little effort, no need to go importing expensive parts :)

So why a CAT for the track? Is this noise related?
