Chris Theo was very lucky to escape unscathed from this unfortunate
accident at Heathcote Park. The very well built V8 powered Holden LX

Brett, Sam, Ads and Shane Dynotest Bretts 265 Chrysler
Valiant Hemi Six Cylinder engine with a Custom Megasquirt Fuel Injection
& Crank Fired Coilpack Ignition system on Sam's Engine Dyno.
It made about 300 Hp (Ok, 297) with lots more tuning to do in the car, but
ran very well with even the limited amount of tuning time we had on the Dyno. Tested with the
Weber Carbs as a Baseline, then the Megasquirt Injection to compare. The
O2 Based AutoTune function is Great ! We had it dialled in to the Ballpark
Map with about 10 minutes work.... Later in the car.. we will "engage" the
Nitrous System ! :)
Looking Forward to getting it in the Charger and having some more time to
