With our ride running smoothly on the Primedia Tech Center Dynojet in-floor chassis dynamometer, carb and engine-tuning guru Bob Vrbancic offered his time and overwhelming experience with supercharged engines for a day to help us get this car somewhat correct. One of the more important aspects was the setting of the boost reference regulator. This gauge was precisely set at 6 pounds and will await until the presence of boost before raising the fuel pressure. Although the engine sounded and ran well during our short stint on the rollers, we weren't able to adequately "play" with the tuning and the results fell a little short of what they should have been. Not to fret, as we plan to take another stab at it with jets and timing light in hand and give you a true number of increased ponies from our long-standing Camaro project.
