You could feel the tension in the test cell as John Mihovetz and the Accufab team entered the test cell. Their Ford four-valve MOD motor finished number one in qualifying, but Kaase upped the ante substantially with a huge gain of points in the finals. Accufab was now playing catch-up, and it all came down to squeezing more power from their combination. Mihovetz worked the tune, bumping output by small increments, bringing peak power to 734 horsepower and peak torque to 661. Calculating the score put the engine at 2931 points, actually dropping from the score recorded during qualifications. Kaase now had taken the lead in final eliminations, with only BES Racing left to run.
