You could also be running out of fuel with a 2bbl carb. There are at least half a dozen reasons why she is topping out at 4800rpm, but remember, if you change anything you are going to have to redial everything in to bracket race, going faster is bad, remaining consistent is the key.

I'm running 600 Holley 4 barrel

Running out of fuel could be it... Maybe time for a better pump...

Not necessarily looking to go faster.. but sitting at it topping out for 50 feet also isn't good.. mostly if it is lean..

That's is one of the reason's I'm thinking about a gear change. That way I will be in third gear not topping out in second.

I keep looking the the 516's in the backroom..

Maybe I should put hardened seat in and the larger exhaust valve and put them back on..

More compression=more torque

With my 1986 Olds Delta 88 that I won my championship with was the same thing.. go when the second yellow was bright.. I averaged a .033 light for the entire season.. no spinning tires.. and I could listen on the radio to hear if I won.. LOL

You have lots of waiting to do in 16.50 seconds.. LOL
