You have a nice stretch of countryside there. Looking at your engine while you are heading up the road it looks and sounds silky smooth. Did you pay particular attention to the the dynamic balancing during your build. Sure has some pulling power from your video. What sort of octane do you need to have it run with 11.1 Very nice
Cheers
Al.

The engine was balanced before the rebuild... since the crank was only polished and he same rods were used, I only paid attention to matching the pistons. I am getting away with 93 octane (Timing is 18* initial and total advance comes in at 30*). No knocking or pinging, run-on, or any other signs of detonation, and the plugs look good. I only have about 400 miles on it. Very happy and surprised to not have any cooling issues either...even in stop and go 95* weather.

I couldn't be happier with the combination - the 294/300 adv duration knocks the dynamic compression down to usable levels with pump gas. It pulls harder than I expected. Now to tackle the traction issue and start on the body work. 8.5 mpg is what I figured out... hopefully get it a little higher with some tuning.

Hi . Thats impressive with 18 and no pinging. I had to drop my 347 back from 12 to 8 to knock out the pinging. I could have gone to 98 instead of 93 but 93 here is $6.25 a gallon. so 98 is not an option.
Sounds like you will have a trouble free engine there. With twin quads on your build i am guessing that a finely tuned engine thats loosened up after a good running in will give you around 12 mpg. Whats gas worth over there.
Cheers, safe rolling.
Al.
