Unhappy first hook update

The event itself wasn't any good. I hooked first and dropped to come back and hook again. The sled never lasted through the entire class.

I started another thread in hopes of getting more in put.

The big oil tunes flat out don't work up high. Yes there is less smoke down low and the mid range feels strong. At 2800 it just lays down. I data logged the pull today with my old tunes. Left the line at 3900. No popping so this is an improvement. Still not enough fuel up top pulling. Same light haze and still 1700 egt's. It only held just over 3000 rpm's down the track. ICP 3200 at 36%.

I can't see where the SHO mods were worth the trouble. Doing the mods with bigger nozzles would have probably been a lot better.

I think the S465 needs more fuel! Give me some input as to what to do.

Re: first hook update

What's the phone number to Swamps? I need to do something.

Re: first hook update

Stick with Jim. He's not gonna give up on you.

Unless you are tired of pulling them out for the moment and just need them flowed pronto. But anytime you switch on something like this you run the risk of burning a bridge and paying for someone else to go all the way back through something.

I would try to work this out if it were me. Only go elsewhere as a last resort.

Re: first hook update

I'm not giving up on Jim. The Swamps thing was just to ruffle a few feathers and try to get some input. Guess I was looking for more and it wasn't there. Not sure what the deal is on the new tunes. There again I didn't think it would go backward.

Re: first hook update

Well I for one am not suggesting anything for fear of getting called an ass for doing it.

And that's not a SA comment. It's just the plain truth.

Re: first hook update
