Did you ever get this thing on the dyno?

Unfortunately, I never got it on a dyno with the racing intake and stuff. But it ran like a scalded dog! Because of how the engine was configured, it didn't "wake up" until around 3000 RPM. Then it pulled like a freight train, up to the rev limiter. I had it set to 6500 RPM, just to be safe.

That said, if I could do it all over again, I'd get rid of the fins in the intake ports. The fins are designed to increase efficiency at low RPM. But this is not a low RPM engine. Also, I think I would have tried to make the ITBs work. The dual throttle bodies were a work-around, but caused as many problems as they solved.
