A couple of examples of pre-computer horsepower. A guy named Navarro built a 182 cu in Rambler six that pulled between 550 and 700 hp, depending on the blower configuration.

Smokey Yunick would take a 302 cu in Chevy, using all GM shelf parts, make 495 hp on one four barrel and 525 hp on two four barrels. Yunick's engines were streetable.
Smokey was a master, he would run enough fuel line around the chassis to hold an extra gallon of gas, helping a driver win by staying out.

How about muscular pony cars, an unlikely, to some, candidate is the 390 AMX

Someone mentioned COPO. The primary function of COPO was for fleet orders. The hot rodders made it famous.

Original muscle cars: speed not close to moderns and poor handling/brakes



Original muscle cars: Tool kit, 12 volt test light, multimeter, dwell meter and a timing light = you can work on anything on the whole car

Modern muscle cars: a laptop and a programmer does not make you a tech

and not I have never owned a modern muscle car.... only original muscles and ponies.... but I own a modern 4x4 I work on.... so feel free to attack me about it

68 & 69 AMX's were sweet. Go Package with the color matched bumpers. 390 made some real torque. Then in 70 they made them 4 seaters and AMX was an option package on the Javelin.

Please just stick to the topic at hand.
Hey, we agree on something.

As far as being on topic, better scold all the other violaters too.

Let me help you out, since you don't like my participation in this thread, there's a cool feature on Glock Talk. It's called the "Ignore" feature. Then......you don't have to see anything I post.

How about that?

Its sarcasm... and a minor attempt at humor while making a point that some cars are way over engineered. Honestly, you can probably get by with one laptop.

I have done the kabooki dance all around my car after a battery change with a key fob on the center console while I turn the hatch lock three times, wait for the tail lights to blink then run into the drivers seat and push the windows down then all the way up (holding for 3 seconds) all the while with my fingers crossed in hopes that the key fob will work again.

So true, Someone ask's about getting a G22 or G23 and
10 people jump in and say the .40 sucks and you should
get a 9mm or .45 acp.

Well, it WAS an interesting thread. I just wish people wouldn't take everything as a measuring contest.

Here's what the Bentley manual says about battery replacement on this Bimmer.

The Okie Corral

"After a new battery is installed a BMW scan tool or equivalent tool is to be connected and then a run service function is done. This notifies the engine electronics that a new battery has been installed. During the registration current mileage is stored; stored values from old battery are deleted; power management is initialized.

Windows, radio, clock, sunroof,etc need to be reset."

So, your big move was to repeat the same ignorant replies others here already have made? Instead of reading the entire thread, you think replying to something from pages ago is the best move on your part?

Check the rest of the thread son.

Maybe it would be better to use a BMW manual for a BMW than a using a Bentley manual for a BMW?

**issues**

Check it out....

GT is pretty much like any other discussion board. If you spout off incorrect B.S., you're gonna take a pounding. It will be easier for you if you can just learn to say "oh, my bad" and move on when you're wrong.

Bentley is known for their MB, Jag, BMW and other manuals.

And I got the joke.

Damn, off topic again.

You just can't stay on topic , hey.

Oh, and you're going to have to do more then what you've done
so far to be even close to pounding me.

The word Amateur comes to mind. Nothing I've said is incorrect.

I remain civil, you insult.
