Man that was awesome. Read Sam's reply and clicked on the video again to watch it (or better yet...hear it) and the next video that loaded after the car was this Corsair on a first start up. Watched the whole video and I flat out love these planes. My all time favorite WWII plane and the coolest engines powering them.

Finally got the Nova out for a full exhaust system today. I thought that running rear pipes beyond the diff would quieten this thing up a bit...but nope. It sounds pretty rank and shakes like a bad ass when stopped at the street lights. It's now ready for a few break in runs which are upcoming. Here's a short clip of it idling away with full exhaust out to the back and exiting just behind the wheels. Full 2.5" pipes with balance tube and Turbo Mufflers which create just the right back pressure for the Mickey Thompson Scavengers.

Turn it up!

I think the idle is right at 1200 Dave

I had this Green line tach calibrated and had the sender converted to digital but it's off by about 400+ rpm. It's also been sticking around 4K from time to time so not money well spent. I do have a Autometer with shift light that I'll likely install because I need something accurate that works.
