  8. Sweet , haha ponies ! All around town , some mountain driving in the blue ridge , commutes and short distance drives maybe 6hours or so , you think it will do the Ton " 100mpb on occasions ?

  10. Touché , you are exactly correct , the car is not running , I blew the engine so it is an opportunity to rebuild , now that being said it is never just a matter of simply buying or slapping on parts . I build normally vintage pre 1963 British single cylinder race bikes and run at Bonneville with good friends and we share our knowledge , failures and success together . Just for personal improvements and support in the end
  11. Haha no beers just stupid auto correct , no I would prefer to do it all myself but also not afraid to ask for more info . It all comes down to understanding marks in tuning , goals and references and to be able to tune or at the very least understand what the potential vs real world numbers and to try to make improvements where I can but I must understand a base line of what I have beyond just driving and having fun or slapping on parts . A beer does sound good now that you bring it up. Also forgive my punctuation or spelling English is my second language even Though I have been in the US 20 years
  12. I calculated HP in 2 ways , none related to the torque , so more of a guesstimate or range , I am trying to reverse the formula above to get torque , perhaps I am over thinking it , yes I am trying to figure out my curves . Thanks for the imput
