    Before getting into my mod, I should mention that there is a stock tuning part for the 313 called "Dual Race Exhausts" that adds 5 horsepower to the engine. It shows that the devs do pay attention to the 313.

    So, I've given the Burnside 313 the tuning parts I believe it deserves. (Horsepower ratings are for each individual part.)

    Four-barrel carb (171 horsepower):

    This is the one we've all wanted; it was originally putting out 165 horsepower, but I found that I could get 170 horsepower from my replica 313 in Automation.

    Three stages of engine block (179, 190, and 230 horsepower):

    Stage 1:

    Stage 2:

    Stage 3:

    I've also added heavy-duty and ultra-heavy-duty engine blocks to the Burnside 313.

    With the Stage 3 block, race exhaust, and four-barrel carb, you can now get 279 horsepower from the 313 for all of your early-NASCAR replica Burnsides.

    Is the 171 WITH the dual race exhausts? Stock it's 153hp. I ran it with the four barrel mod only and it knocked .6 seconds off the quarter mile, which seems reasonable.

    No, that's with just the four-barrel. No race exhausts. I'm not sure what's going on on your end - maybe a mod conflict that's leading to my 4-barrel being overwritten?

    Oh no there's no issue. I was just reporting the performance improvement in the 1/4 from changing to your 4 barrel carburetor was a .6 second improvement, which I think sounds accurate.

    Separately, I thought going from 153 to 171 seemed like just a big jump from just a four barrel but after looking at historical information; it's right in line.

    Oh...okay, great.

    That's good to hear - I was mostly winging it with that mod (I used Automation, but that's not the most accurate thing in the world).

    I'm just sitting here, thinking about amateur-level American oval racing through the years, and am reminded of these race cars that were built out of used cars and run through the sixties and seventies. I wonder about the chances of a third body with welded doors and rear fender cutouts.

    The rest of the bits would be more versatile stuff - front and rear push bumpers, straight pipes, etc, so it might present something of an interesting thing to have if/when the Burnside gets a remaster.

    the only problem with that is that the frame is way too weak, also I don't think it would get a remaster but rather just more content (it needs a lot of parts)
