PONTIAC GTO Judge (1971 455cid, the differences basic supertuning can make)
Those who know me well, know that I always beat "SUPERTUNING"
"SUPERTUNING" "SUPERTUNING" into the ground. This video shows the
difference minor tuning can do (This is minor because a 1971 GTO's fuel/ign
calibrations are already geared for performance, so there's not as much
improvement you can make like you'd be able to on say - a late 70s
smogger). But on larger scales, HUGE differences can be made, as much
difference as adding performance parts alone. The more the car is severely
out of tune/adjust------which happens more with the more mods you make,
then the more you'll gain by supertuning it. There's another vid on YT
where an Olds 455 was built with performance parts to be totally streetable
but achieve 1hp per cubic inch. After they got the recipe of perfect parts
all together they were disappointed when she only Dynoed at 320hp. But luckily
they did not give up! After the proper ign-curve/timing & carb adjusts were
made, the engine jumped from 320 up to 455hp!! No doubt all the new
cam/intake/head mods put the old fuel/spark adjustments badly out of
calibration for the NEW BREATHING ABILITY. Also with things like dual quads
(especially to engines not originally equipped wit them), your adjustments
are most likely going to be way off and need calibration even more. There's
lots of dual quad cars out there not running well for this reason, however
the few that have been calibrated perfectly (EVERY adjustment set for the
best "stop watch" time, etc) truly do run like a bat out of hell!

F.A.S.T. 69 Ram Air IV GTO running 12's on G70's
This was my best run last year at Pittsburgh raceway, it ran a 12.82 with
1.80 60 foot time on G70's. This was my first year running this car and I
only had time to get used to launching the car correctly and shifting
differently. This run was done without using the clutch to shift, I also
tried speed shifting(not letting off the gas and bumping the clutch) and
did not pick up any time. The engine is a 69 428 built to RAIV specs with
an M-20 and 4.11 rear. I am going through the entire car and looking to
pick up more time this year.

Pontiac GTO on dyno
A Pontiac GTO on the Dyno. Sorry i don't have any
results, but it's a cool looking car and has a cool sound. I think it ended
up making alot less than the owner had expected, around 300 horsepower.
