Carb: QuickFuel Q850 (Jets - 72 primary, 78 secondary) 4.5 Power Valve. This carb originally had 76/86 jets, running with the 3” X Pipe exhaust (now twin 2.5”). The unburnt fuel fumes were unbearable.

Dyno Results
For the dyno, we used Pacemaker 4 into 1 extractors, 2” Primary into 3.5” collectors

The first carb used was a Holley 830 double pumper - Ignition was set with 21 initial to 30 degrees timing.
The result was 512HP @ 6000RPM & 471 ft/lb@4700RPM
Air Fuel ratio was 14.02:1 (A little high for the tuner’s liking, so we swapped carb)

The next carb was a Holley 950 HP Double Pumper (Jets - 79 primary/86 Secondary)- with 21 initial to 30 degrees total timing.
After a warm up, the result was 535HP @ 6000RPM & Torque spiked to 529 ft/lb@4700RPM, then went down, then came up again - this was an inaccurate reading (See pic)
Air Fuel Ratio was 11.5:1

We re-set the rev limiter to 6500 - Timing stayed the same (21 initial to 30 degrees total)
The result of this change was 549.6HP @ 6500RPM & Torque was 505.4 ft/lb@5300RPM
Air Fuel Ratio was around 11.5:1

We re-set the rev limiter to 6800 - Timing stayed the same (21 initial to 30 degrees total)
The result was 557.7HP @ 6800RPM & Torque was 508.6 ft/lb@5400RPM
Air Fuel Ratio was around 11.5:1

On a cool night, it ran a best time of 12.34@116.5mph. This is with 3.25 diff gears and 205/70 14 tyres.
It was my first time drag racing, so i need to practice how to get it off the line…

Sweet man. I think you did a hell of a job racing with those little tires. I know if it were me, with all that power, i probably would have ran a 16 or something. With all that power ans small tire i would have been like "what 60 foot , 330 foot and 660 foot". Nice car and build man

3360 lb (without driver)

I had to launch at around 2500RPM (that's why it bogged down off the line in the video)

Any more RPM would result in a massive burnout...

Do you plan on getting some slicks or drag radials for it?. your gonna need some good rubbers to hold that thing down. How big a tire can you stuff under it before you have to chop metal?

No slicks, no drag radials...

It's a standard looking GT Falcon, so the most it will run is probably 225/15s - It's not a drag car, just a cruiser (sleeper)

I got ya. I, myself would at least step it up to a 15" wheel 7 to 8 inch wide and get some better street tires. Were the Falcons available with 15" Wheels from the factory?
