Re: Projected-tip spark plug benefits?

I did an A/B test with NGK standard tip and extended tip plugs on a 600+ HP/TQ pump gas 496 with OEM 291 closed chamber rectangle port heads.

Zero difference. Everything was within 2-3 HP/TQ across the board, well within normal testing variances.

Re: Holley 850...Made in China?

I believe the customer bought from amazon ..no he returned them for credit . I will contact him to verify his source. I now wish I would have profiled them and tried to make it work. Are you sure it wasn't "remanufactured"? "They" are producing "new" "Quadrajets" now. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Carbu...

Re: machine shop Dayton / Cinci area

Parsons is a great choice.

Kammer Racing specializes in Mopar stuff, they're in Huber Heights.

There's also the legendary Ohio George Montgomery's shop in Dayton (just South of Huber actually). George is my go-to guy.

White 218 and red 240 cams have proven quite versatile for me.
