Ask Havasu, it is hard to outrun a radio.

well, I haven't driven it much lately. I have my dyno session scheduled for the 22nd. next monday. I will probably have to pick it up tuesday, and we are apparently in monsoon season here so we will have to see.

I finally got the ol 89 over to the dyno shop yesterday. We knew we needed to swap to a cooler spark plug, but we did not know which one to choose, so we were not surprised to hear that on the first run it had some detonation at WOT. also I should have drained the fuel tank before I started this project, but I didn't. I had over a quarter tank of 87 octane in it when I finished the install. I filled it with 91 but I know the fuel is a little low on octane. it still made right at 400 hp at the wheels on a mustang dyno. he said he had to take quite a bit of timing out of it to prevent detonation, so I am sure it would do a bit better with race fuel, or even pure 91. regardless I am satisfied. with the AOD, and the mustang dyno I would guess I am already getting dangerously close to 500 hp at the crank and this is a stock block engine. so I am pretty happy with the results. It was also cool to see another foxbody guy this close to me. he had several in the shop undergoing some pretty major modifications
