Ok tonight without data logging i first tried to give it some more acceleration enrichment that was the wrong way as i did data log that and it just stumbled all over being to rich so i pulled that back out plus some more then i pulled some water meth out and it is better now i will data log and am sure i will need to pull some fuel out and maybe some more water / methanol . i do know one thing when i finally get this to where i can just slam it to the floor it is going to really be a hand full !

Methanol is fuel, so when you're on the spray, you should cut back a bit on the gasoline to maintain the same lambda.

Is your dyno working now? On the dyno it would be a good way to measure the difference with/without the water/meth.

Hi, I just read through almost the whole 54 pages of this over the last few days. I am off work for a couple weeks because I may have the dreaded COVID.
I skipped a few pages here and there, but i saw you saying it was for sale a while back, but you still have it. I am glad you didn't sell it. I read Shem's whole build too, you guys are awesome, saying how you hate bodywork, but you kick ass, my body work would look like a lumpy potato.
Anyway, love your build, want to see dyno runs and drag strip time slips, don't get rid of that car!!!!

Well it looks like the slipping belt is back so i will try one more thing by going back to a manual belt tensioner on 1 of the belts and if that does not work then i need to either go to a toothed belt or just pull the Supercharger and put a turbo on but i am pretty sure i will end up with the toothed belt as i do really want this to work .

Ok i just ordered this SBC drive kit for water pump and alternator it give me a crank pulley and i think the alternator pulley i will use on the blower as i think it is a 2 to 1 ratio so at 6500 the blower will be turning 13000 rpm but this will get me going to a non slip solution and it cost me $113 to start
