Well ............... if you go to the trouble of a making it a bridgeport (that makes no power) it should at least BRAP ! Otherwise there really is no point .

I thought we could all be adults have a meaningful discussion about why the braphole causes brap!

I actually don't run it like this myself , it's just something that happened when i was playing with ideas . Vacuum is around -9psi from memory .

Would you believe I've had several people come to me wanting their bridgeport to brap? They don't even care about fuel mileage or that fact they lost power . They just want it the BRAAAAAAAPP!!!!!!!

What I hated most about my bridge was the surge up the secondaries. It made the SSV rattle like it was dead, and made it stick from all the oil and fuel deposited on it from the surge. Had to tear it down and clean the assemble once or twice a year. I never recommend a bridge to anyone.

I can't wait to pull that motor and stuff the 20b in.

This mod actually stops that rattle as well as creates the brap . So that's actually two benefits
