A few years ago (not sure how many), there was an article in Classic Motorsports (I believe) where the guys tuned a TR6 on a dyno.  Does anyone still have that article?  I thought I had saved it, but apparently did not.

Let me see if we can find that one for you.

I may have it, but I'm not sure how happy the GRM folks would be if I posted it here.  If they can't find it and I can, I'll be glad to post it if given permission.

I'll tell Miles to chase it down and post it on the site. Stay tuned!

Cool, because I can't find my original.  I have a partial copy that I made.  It must have gotten lost in a purge.

@losendos and @JoeTR6, are we talking about the 2015 dyno report here? https://classicmotorsports.com/articles/make-it-sing/

The article I'm thinking of has a table comparing various configurations of TR6 on a dyno titled "Other Power Options".  It was about supercharging a TR6, I believe.

Oh, Joe you are looking for "Six Shooter" out of March 2008's Classic Motorsports issue. I'll take the time to schedule and post that article online as well!

In reply to Miles Wilson :

Miles, sorry it has taken me so long to respond, but yes, this is the article.  Thank you!  I have a 1966 Thunderbird.  It doesn't have SUs or Strombergs, but I think some dyno tuning might help optimize its drivability, like it did for this TR6.  Thanks again!

I remember another good TR6 article, back around Summer, 2015, possibly July or August issue. But I don't remember if it included a dyno test. It was a great issue overall. In fact, that month's issue was so good it enticed me to renew my subscription. I wrote a complimentary post here, but I can't find it now so that I could substantiate the actual date or issue.

P. S. So after a little more due-diligence, found my post:

Phew, took a little time figuring out formatting and where to place this in our content but the requested article is up and live: https://classicmotorsports.com/articles/six-shooter/

I included the comparative table and dyno sheet (albeit a little grainy due to my source image file.) Ask and you shall recieve, losendos.

That is a wonderful article.  Thanks for posting it.
