We are super busy over here trying to get ready for TX2K but I wanted to fill you in on a project we just finished.
After talking back and forth with this customer for over a year he decided it was time for some more power. It was a great honor to receive the go ahead on the build from this guy. He is an old school car guy who has built dozens of fast cars over the years. Some were built by shops and other buy him and his friend in their shop.
He is now a man with the means to pay for a top notch build and could have sent his car anywhere. I was very excited when he told me that he had chosen us for his build.
That being said this particular customer does a lot of roll racing ( Half Mile type racing) but does most all of it on pump gas. He asked me to design a build within his budget that would perform to his needs optimally.
After several different options were considered we landed on a 30R build with some TSM custom parts at the heart. I got on the horn with Manley and ordered up some custom compression pistons and started working on cam combinations that would work perfectly with the rest of the build.
The results of the combination we put together really worked well. To the point that we were shocked at how great the results were.
An AWESOME 971 WHP on good ole' Shell 93!!! So this customer can roll around with two PUMP gas maps to chose from. 23-24 PSI making 900 WHP! Or PUMP KILL @ 971!
Unfortunately we ran out of fuel on 100oct race gas so we were not able to push this girl to her limits. For the boost levels listed below however this thing is seriously doing work! We were also able to get some 60-130 pulls before the car left in order to have a little pudding proof.
The whole build with all the custom parts took about 3 months total. We sent our private truck and trailer to deliver the car back to the customer last week, and he has been enjoying it on a nightly basis so far.
