Agreed, no flex fan! I learned that the hard way a long time ago.
One more about people running into things. The funniest one I remember was a lady at a four way stop. Seems she didn't like the second vehicle going out of turn, even if it was being towed via a long cable by vehicle number one. The lady gunned it to cut the second (towed) vehicle off, hit the tow cable, and suddenly looked like she was shot from a giant slingshot in the opposite direction. Kind of reminded me of a giant slinky explosion. [emoticon]
Luckily nobody was hurt, just her pride, and of course bits of her grill. I'm sure it wasn't real good for the towed and tow car either.

^^^ I've been involved in the Coast Guard for 50 years. You remind me of a similar incident where a merchant cargo ship ran between a seagoing tug and a big barge it was towing from Florida down to Puerto Rico. Came very close to both tug and barge, cutting that big steel tow cable in two. The yelling and screaming on the marine radio was something I wish I could have recorded.

Got the engine on the Dyno today. ThermoQuad ran like a champ. I couldn’t stay for the 3rd pull, but the numbers on the 2nd pull were dramatically increased from the first.

That average is from min RPM to max RPM, so yes. 275hp@5100; 320lbft@3800.

Nice last pull. Thought this thread could use a small bump to get us over the hump. [emoticon]

It sure sounds good, and makes me miss my old hot rodding days from a past life.
