Cervan,
I hope you had someone else holding the camera. Car seems to have plenty of umph in it. Have you tracked your fuel consumption using your special mix?

Your instrument cluster don't match the year of the car ('83). You should have a 100 mph speedometer.

Wow. It actually sounds ok.
What does the exhaust smell like?

And.....
Why did you stay at 40 for a while? Was that a straight 0-60 or did you have to slow down to merge or something?

Did my ear's deceive me or did you get a little tire squeal in first?

Did I miss something of relevance? The car idles, and it accelerates........
I was waiting for fire out of the exhaust.
BTW, did I see it go by "the tree" there towards the first?

these engines do not need to idle plus its not good for them to be left idling long... contrary to what some believe, they are not like the semi trucks that can idle all night...
