Got over the first hump today. Ran the motor in and made a couple of pulls. Pk Tq and Hp look good but the bottom end needs a little work. Its somewhere to start :) .

I wonder when they are going to send people information about some kind of dyno run schedule ...?

Everybody must be thrashing away, its pretty quiet around here. Trying to hit the dyno one last time Friday. Thought my journey came to an end last week. Got it short blocked, should have a new oil pickup Tuesday, hopefully with a flat flange this time.

I would most are working on EMC this weekend. I am mostly done. Which means I can’t get it any better. I am disappointed with the peak power and TQ but these are the most restricted rules in all the years I’ve competed.

I would bet that this will be the closest contest from 1 through 10, there has ever been in the Engine Masters Competition.

This has been a frustrating build this year, to say the least. We are still waiting on a couple of camshafts that were ordered months ago. Now we don't have time to actually try them if they arrived tomorrow. Very glad we had one custom ground several months ago by Mike Jones. Eaton/Craine

I think that was before 2 of the classes got dropped from the competition.
I witnessed 35K ... 15K to the Early iron winner and 20k to the LS winner.

Yes such a shame to have extreme rule restrictions, makes me think of other motor sports like F1, its like encouraging anti engineering.
It becomes a huge blockade in developing new ideas, like some of the great things you have come up with. Also takes the fun out of the competition I think. And it also keeps some really good people from joining in as well. They really need to change the name of that contest.

OTOH, look at the point spread. In most restricted classes the competition is very close. The Early Iron class had maybe a 20% spread from lowest score to highest; quite a differential. It would seem some creativity being exhibited there.
