    8.2 psi. WG set at 9.5 so I agree I could add fuel.

    Yeah, you are totally fuel-limited right there. You can see it just... hit a wall. Check if you still have the "torque screw" in your IP. If so, back it out and you'll gain back that whole middle section of the curve, and probably 50 HP right there.

    @Agnem I am interested in your input! I have a stock Baby Moose.

    Am I the only one that thinks the HP/TQ ratio is really interesting here? Nearly all the IDI dyno sheets ive seen are pretty close to 1:2 HP/TQ. So for 400ft-lbs the ponies would be around 200.

    This is a 1:2.66 ratio and I just thought that was interesting.

    About how far does the gauge stick out? I am extremely anal about that sort of thing but really like these gauges. Looks great there as long as it doesn't stick out too far.

    About 3/8" protrudes out of the dash. I am also picky about appearance, I really wanted it to be rear-mounted and invisible but that wouln't work. I am happy with the fit and finish of my install.

    I wasn’t picking on it, it looks great man I was just curious I’ll pribably still go with it. Probably steal your idea for mounting as well it looks killer.
