One more..
Turbocharged Allison V-1710





As you can tell.. I love old V12s (radials too). V8s are one thing, but with the whine of the supercharger on one of these things at WEP; nothing sounds more sexy.

Should also note Allison's attempt to build an "30 degree X" setup aka the V3420: A pair of 1710s that shared a common block/crankcase. Which was used in this little Fisher Body beauty..

Love the sound of my old ride. Here it is on the dyno getting tuned. We turned down the SC PSI to 9psi making 600rwhp at the wheels. The SC is was good up to 14psi and the motor was built to handle it. You can see it ramps up VERY fast.

Dyno



If you wanted to hear it ideal and a walk around of the paint job.. see here

I just wish the blower whine wasn't so loud. Otherwise I'd like it. Check this one out Tac. Personal preferrence, but I much prefer a more subtle FI noise.
