    The people who live a couple houses south of me on the next block were swapping a motor into their Nova in their backyard. Sounds like they got it fired tonight at about 11:00 p.m. Sounds like open headers and either the timing is way off, or theres a flat lobe on the cam. They were revving it up, it was backfiring, making alot of noise.

    Didn't bother me at all. I just listened and thought to myself what the problem could be. Looked outside and saw a neighbor open their door and look outside. I bet people probably thout it was one of my rigs, but I'm innocent this time. Besides, I never start anything loud after 10 pm, and if I do its in the garage.

    When I built my last motor, I did the cam break in with open headers at 330 am /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    I work graveyard shift. On my days off I occasionally can't sleep at night so what better time to fire the Harley up and go for a put around town. The silence of the night and the nice crisp night air make that 102 inch 12.5:1 compression running through the 2 inch drag pipes sing baby!!!!
