228hp, ?? ft-lbs

April 17, 2004

Schings Racing, Lexington, KY


FM3 after doing some tuning at Schings Racing.  The graph shows horse power and air fuel ratio per the shop's WBO2 sensor.  The black lines were my initial run at 15psi.  The blue was the best run and the red was the last run (started to get pretty heat soaked).
