Why are ppl so consumed by dyno figures.. they like swapping sheets of paper on a friday night in front of 7 eleven?

The black tar is the real dyno .

A decent 308 with 286 in proper setup should run anywhere from low 13 to high 12 depending on car of course .

Was a good setup and very streetable. Use to light the tyres at 60 with 3.08 gears.
Basic run down -
Full balance & blueprint, linish crank (had some movement prior to rebuild)
Slight bore, +30
Flat top pistons, 'x' rods
286 Crane Cam, W Gold Roller Rockers, Crane lifters
Decent valves and valve springs
Big Valve Heads, radically ported, flowed something like 460HP on the bench.
Edelbrock performer inlet manifold, 1 inch spacer plate
10.1 Comp
Holley 650DP, then upgraded to a 750DP
Run by a Holley Blue fuel pump
With a Trimatic & 3500 Dominator Eliminator stall.

I do miss it but after building it and working in the city, $200+ a week fuel bills were killing me.
The 3500 convertor way to big for that cam thou mate .
