Paul Pavlou Motors- big thumbs up

Hi guys
A bit of background first.
I had a 406 small block built by an engine builder years ago. When he built it one of his conditions was that he dyno tune it. I thought why not. Anyway, once dynoed and supposedly tuned, (apparently 490hp 485 ft/lbs) engine hardly ran and was shelved for a long time while family, work, kids etc
Cut to now and finally got it installed and running and it would just foul plugs, run rough generally a dog everywhere. Had enough so took it into Steve at Paul Pavlou Motors. Long story short, he found no tune to speak of at all. Carby and timing were all over the place to the point where he actually picked up 96 HP at the wheels from setting up the carb, modifying the dizzy. Hard to believe but I saw the graphs and the difference in driving now is unbelievable. Crisp as a cracker and throttle response to die for. Big thumbs up.
