Well, the detailed dyno testing is on an engine dyno, not a chassis dyno. Doing 50 - 100 pulls in the 1,5xx+ range is not something you want to do on a chassis dyno.

...and you are pretty scary with the baby picture. Our Director of Engineering here is 35 and has 12, yes twelve kids !!!

Originally I wanted this car to look 100% stock, idle stock, get 25 mpg and pump out 1000 hp, but at this stage it was decided to kick it up a notch. So you have now seen that heads were changed and upgraded for considerably higher flow capacity. Something about a motor making so much power should not idle like it's electric, so the decision was made to chuck the hydraulic roller LS7 cam and run a solid roller with a NASCAR valvetrain. So the heads are now topped with nascar springs and a full T&D shaft roller rocker setup. This setup has proven to be bulletproof and should last for 100,000 miles with no problem.
Still guessing 1952. NASCAR = 700+, normally aspirated.....hmmmmm;

How did I miss this thread. If it wasn't for your post about the "Octane On Demand" I would never have seen this.

Great build.

I have a Tec3 in the Black Hemi in my sig to control the 6.8L(stroked 6.1L SRT-8) engine with turbo, nitrous and methanol injection. I had thought about having NRE tune it but as you mentioned they are very busy.


BTW, do you still have the air to air i/c?

I know he switched to a water to air. What I meant was does he still have it as in for sale, trade or donation etc., lol.

Great build. Thanks, it has been a long one... but almost done.

I have a Tec3 in the Black Hemi in my sig to control the 6.8L(stroked 6.1L SRT-8) engine with turbo, nitrous and methanol injection. I had thought about having NRE tune it but as you mentioned they are very busy. I would highly recommend NRE to tune your Tec3. They know that controller better than anyone. I spoke with the Electromotive guys at the PRI show and they said Tom was the man. I can have him give you a call if you leave me your phone number in a PM.


BTW, do you still have the air to air i/c?
Actually, yes I do. Unless Tom needs it for another customer, I can give you a parts only cost. I already paid for all the labor which was substantial.

The pumpkin is the center section of the rearend/third member. Some people call it the differential which is technically the "guts", but it is the whole assembly that is commonly referred to as the pumpkin.
