Here is the link to a video of a very HOT L6 in Argentina.

You might need to have a Facebook account to view this. If you follow the link you will see an amazing video of a six cylinder on a dyno in Argentina. The engine sounds amazing at low idle. They turn the lights out and the video will go dark, but there’s nothing wrong with your computer. As the engine moves up into the higher RPMs . . . . .
I don’t want to spoil it for you.

Been there- - - - -done that- - - - -many times! During a long pull it's possible to see the flames dancing around inside the header tubes. The thermal sensors we ran on our dyno headers would indicate exhaust port temps approaching 2,000 degrees F. when the ignition timing and carburetor mixture was right.

Notice the header tubes that look like a wad of snakes? They are equal length for each port which is the only way to build a header correctly. They're also most effective at a specific (high) RPM. I built a set of headers once for a 440 MOPAR pull truck engine that had primary tubes 8 feet long- - - -we wanted maximum low end torque, not top end horsepower for that engine, and the long header tubes accomplished that goal.

The murder victim was drowned in a bathtub full of Rice Krispies and milk.
The coroner blamed the crime on a cereal killer!

Cringe and wail in fear, Eloi- - - - -we Morlocks are on the hunt!
