BigPeet is reading this now saying WTF is this?
Wow again! Pretend you are standing in front of dozens of bikers and spouting your nonsense instead of sitting behind the computer, because they're all laughin' at you!

125mph on your shovel. You know that because at that speed you looked over at your buddies speedometer? Was that when you were racing the LTD?

Yea, and my FXR is black with a windshield just like that Hemi Challenger and Lamborghini.

We figured out the ADIOS MF thing ourselves...you might have to help me with the small block chevy clone comment.

It's always good to hit the Preview Post button and reread your posts. Because once you hit that Submit Reply button it's there for hundreds to see.

That's impressive. My calculator says you averaged 108.21mph at almost 5000rpm for 56 minutes. I always said those 'ol Shovelheads were tough!

~Pete

P.S. I believe you and I'm trying to be nice...so please don't reply with a negative post.

Lets change the subject for just a moment.

You all do know that hemi chambers suck? Right?
Takes dual plugs to make em burn right on a shovel. Or you can cut a big ole fire slot across the piston dome.

Chrysler hemi's make power because of the ports and valve angles, not the chambers. And they knew it at the time. But the only way they could make the big valves and ports work was with hemi chambers. Casting techniques with iron were not what they are today with aluminum. Ford ran into the same issues and ended up with hemi chambers. GM managed to actually make the next step, but it took them several tries to get it right with the mk4's.

Yep, I did know that. Hemi heads were around since before the first Harley. 1900 or 1901 I think. Lots of European cars used them long before the 426ci Hemi. They were never known as a performance motor until then. In fact the old 392ci Hemi was never much of a performance engine. Engines have come a long way since the '60's muscle cars. The new Chevy 6.2 SC puts out 580hp and gets 19mpg hwy. And that's with a warrantee!

In fact I've never heard of the Shovehead being a performance motor because of the hemi-heads. But I have heard of the dual plug heads to wake up their potential.
