We dynoed 268 WHP with the afc not getting a MAF reading!!!!!!!!!!! Now its stage 3 with the AFC reading correctly, you ready for some 325+whp pulls........

The first pull was actually 271whp, the numbers posted where of the 2nd pull. If we would have been able to tune the car i probably would have hit 300whp then. I should be making at least 325whp now.
