Default Re: 4th Gear 45mph Max Speed

I think I figured it out. I installed a tach tonight just to see what she was actually turning. I was not able to do a test drive. In the shop, I spooled up 2k and then 3k. I think with no insulation in the car and the bad exhaust, she just sounded like she was gonna blow. Or, as I told my dad, sounds like I am inside a tin drum. That is a relief. New exhaust going on next week that will keep it down to a dull roar. Next year or so, I will probably start on the bodywork and then put some insulation inside the beast.
