howdy. ABout this dyno day on Saturday me and Waggiin are going head to head for the lowest horsepower of the day. I have a EB I6 running on bp ultimate with 120,000 kays and brad has his EB I6 running on gas and 300,000 odd kays (i think). im certain that i will loose in the lowest HP battle but does anyone have any suggestions on how to loose horsepower from my motor :D hehe
BTW this is not a serious post but im happy to hear your oppinions

cheers
Regie
