The story continues. It's now tuned ready to bed in some rings. Runs sweet and loud. The cam is incredibly obvious and the blower whine is a higher pitch. Unfortunately in the process the exhaust heatshield failed - there was a minor fire and my remote oil line braiding got melted. That ended the session. Looks like the weekend just got busy

Safely pulled 450hp out of it but it's possible the blower isn't up to the job. It'll do for now but that's a lot of motor to feed and it didn't push much past 6 pounds. We shall see, it's nice to have an upgrade path, I think a Whipple would satisfy it

And then we were done. Clutch and engine broken in and 1500km later we polished the tune. Still only makes 6 pounds but to be honest I can't expect much more than that from a 2L roots on a 6.3L boost monster. Final result was 357rwkw and 822nm. The A/F is perfect here and it's a safe number. It's a cranky weapon and I'm pleased as punch
