1984 Dodge Rampage Turbo
Did they do that with the injectors too?ets sell our rejects as an upgrade to the performance crowd.
That will read a SMEC in real time? Wish I could afford one of those, make life a bit easier.(Snap-On MT2500)
I put new Champions in when got home with new cap/rotor/wires. Took a look at the plugs after about 10 miles, and were white on the electrode, not a light brown.The issue was an "ash" fouled spark plug in #2 cylinder (been a problem for awhile, I usually just replace it every 6 month's.). See top row, 3rd pic to the right.
Learned early in my teenage years about fuels, octane, and how they affect performance. The octane is just a rating of the resistance to detonation/preignition. Also the higher octane burn slower and longer. Not great for everyday cars, but needed for anything performance oriented. My father ran a '71 Duster with Keith Black 500ci Mopar. It could dip into the 9's but with Pro Stock class, it is about consistency, and usually ran 10.50's. Of course he had a few barrels of fuel around and we had a local that had a early '70's Monte Carlo, cannot remember weather he had a SB or BB.low octane fuel
He built it with stock iron heads, no porting, but over the top compression for a street car. He was always bugging my dad for fuel, and also always upset his car ran like shit most of the time. Father tried explaining to him his setup is jacked and should start over, could not get it into his head that moving air makes more power, not high compression / race gas. Not enough gearheads understand higher octane does not give you more power, but just enough octane to stop detonation/preignition.
