Lug Dyno Challenge

Out a solid 559 rear-wheel horsepower helped by a nudge from a Nitrous Outlet 150 shot. Dan Neinstadt thought he had Nick covered, but a tiny slip of the M T 315 35-17 ET Street tires put him an ego-bruising 1 hp short. Rick Adams earned style points for knocking out 531 naturally aspirated horsepower, while Rod Strumbel's supercharged Ford was close behind with 510 horses to place Fourth. While it wasn't worth any extra points, it was Randy Johnson's colorful Camaro that earned the top...

Part Ii

By Richard Holdener Photos Richard Holdener The phones rang off the hook when we covered the components and dyno testing of the low-buck 454 from Demon Engines in the Oct. '10 issue. Checking in at 2,650 outright (minus carburetor), the low-buck 454 from Demon Engines offered an attractive combination of power and pricing. Bypassing the stock replacement and wrecking yard motors, the mill offered a minimum of 400 hp for just less than three large outright and required no core exchange. Even...

Between the cones is where driver skill played a big part in RSE. This year's course was significantly longer than last year's while still occupying the same real estate. With several returning players, we knew guys such as John Boos, Nick Abernathy, Randy Johnson, and Jeff Schwartz would be quick. Just like in previous competitions, we didn't limit the number of official runs against the clock. We had many more Summer Nationals participants also running the track, which meant the RSE cars were...

Tech Notes

Who Fred Kappus What 67 Dodge Dart Where Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. Be sure to sample a pint or two of Leinenkugel's Big Butt Doppelbock while you're there. Engine A 400 is a B- (rather than RB) block with a 4.340-inch bore and, originally, a 3.38-inch stroke. Fred tells us he chose this platform because the blocks are less expensive than RBs, and the lower deck height means he can make bigger headers fit better inside the cramped engine compartment of his A-body. Bored 0.030 inch and with a...

The Destruction Phase

Had we treated the Olds with a little more care, the engine swap would probably have required less effort. But because we'd allowed the cooling system to decay and spray rusty coolant over most of the engine compartment, we decided a good cleansing and repaint were in order. We dialed in a new aluminum radiator from Mark 7 to replace the original, which, like the heater core, was sporting barnacles. Based on this and with the help of CC family member Kris Shields, we decided the entire engine...

The Fun Part

Once we chased all the surface rust away and sprayed the entire engine compartment with Rust-Oleum rusty metal primer topped with satin-black paint, it was time to start the construction phase. Much like with our early Chevelle, we also discovered that interlocking safety motor mounts wouldn't clear the stock frame mounts, necessitating the use of our original mounts. We also learned that the headers would fit from underneath if we lifted up one side of the engine about 3 inches using the...

Whats Your Problem

Flow bench testing is an easy way to discover how bore size affects airflow and performance. If you want to increase the airflow of even a simple small-block Chevy cylinder head, just change the test bore size adapter from the 305's 3.735-inch diameter to something like the 400's stock 4.125-inch bore. This could be worth 10 cfm at max flow. If you watch closely when cylinder head companies state their flow numbers, the smart ones will use a larger bore to improve the flow numbers. Flow bench...

Later, one-piece rear main seal engines that would allow you to run factory-style hydraulic roller camshafts. You could still convert to a hydraulic roller camshaft, but it would be more expensive because you would have to purchase the retrofit aftermarket hydraulic roller lifters. These are much more expensive than standard production hydraulic roller lifters. Given that option, we spoke to Jim Hall at Tuned Port Induction Specialties (TPiS), a company that has loads of experience building...

Injector School

Steve Telkes Saddle Brook, NJ What is . the difference between a pintle- and disc- j style fuel injector and which is better for performance use in a programmable aftermarket EFI system Jeff Smith We decided to go to school for an hour or so with our friend Joe Alameddine, who is one of the design engineers with ACCEL. There are actually three different designs that include the pintle, the disc, and the newest ball and seat style. Within the world of older injectors, we'll limit this discussion...

Just In Time

Brockways were made from 1912 to 1977 in Cortland, New York, and were very popular on the East Coast. Around 1999, a group of people got together and decided to start an annual Brockway truck show. The show starts with a parade that begins in Homer, New York, and ends in downtown Cortland. They section off two full I blocks of Main Street for the day to park the trucks. The show has grown every year, and this past August they f had 140 Brockways in all. My goal was to get our truck ready to...
