I'd like to repeat this back-to-back on an engine dyno in a dyno cell (environmentally controlled) to get more scientific results.

Anyone else tested this? Jeff Gamroth of Rothsport? Steve Weiner of Rennsport Systems? Someone? Bueler?

I don't doubt that Lee Rice was telling the truth. I've dealt with him for years and always found him to be very knowledgeable, experienced, friendly, and helpful. If he says he could flood the engine out by pressing down on the metering plate, I believe him.

On this 930, we took off the fuel metering contraption and installed Cole's. A few days later we re-dynoed the car when scheduling permitted. I expected that I would see some measurable changes -- different AFR plots from better metering, more torque & power, more top end from the airflow mods to the CIS housing... something -- but really, the HP, TQ, and AFR plots looked pretty much the same as the earlier week's runs.

Did those mods help in this case? Not that I could see.
Is there room for improvement in the metering plate and housing? I'm sure of it.
