'We actually finished this issue ON TIME!!! . . . let's party. More PowerHere's what our dyno test reinforced from what we already knew about our 496-inch Rat. The big deal is clearly the induction system. We've seen plenty of 500-plus cubic inch Rats run to know that a 1,050-cfm carb would be beneficial. Our budget also forced us to use a stock pan-so there's a few horsepower in a good oil pan and tray assembly. It would also be nice to run thinner piston rings and forged pistons and maybe a point more compression. With all these ideas, it's possible with the parts and more tuning we could make 730 hp. If you think that's worthwhile, let us know and we'll put the whip to our phat Rat. SOURCES COMP Cams Air Flow Research 10490 Ilex Avenue, Dept.
