But, I noticed, why does the gear ratio keep changing in all 4 runs? I thought it's suppose to stay the same.
Also smoothing: 5, seems like a lot. I'm no expert on this stuff though, just trying to understand it.
Sorry if it seems I'm critiquing.

The operator is shifting the car, bring it up to 5th gear (1:1 direct gear on Soviets 6-speed). The run starts in 5th, the previous shifts are not recorded, thus why they're lazy, and at low rpm. The operator hits a button, when he's ready, and the recording/measuring starts.



EDIT: Soviet, damn you. Now I'm stuck on page two, like a moron.

My theory-crafted day dream setup is nearly what youve built. Great work. Our motors are pretty similar, only differeces being your flattop vs my honda IM.

To the peanut gallery: How much topend would one be giving up by stepping down to a 6258?

6258 max flow is 44lb/min
6758 max flow is 53lb/min

difference is 9lb/min so armchair math says 90 crank hp

There are a lot of things I'd love to throw money at in my car but I don't REALLY need
- Built VVT head with cams
- Balanced rotating assembly
- Baller oil cooler (this I do need...)
- etc
