Karl,

"was made for fixed RPM engines and considered
very expensive but proven to be more thermaly efficant than the popular (common) "roots" design. Interesting to read."

I'll have to look for that book. Did they test the Lycolm operating at a fixed RPM or over a varied range? I wonder if it's as efficent working outside it's curve?

"I should get the car on the track this week so I
will make a better determination there."

Please let me know how it goes! Notice any difference in the mid-range? Do you know what Garrett did to try to correct the problem there? Have fun at 130!

Thanks,

Shawn
