With this thing on the dyno, I managed a pretty nice recording. Afterwards... Thought that it would be fun to make people guess the hp number of this run. :D



Any thoughts? :winner:

825HP................................. :D :huh:

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the back of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall.
BUT Torque is how far you take the wall with you!!

Split the difference and you get pretty close to the actual power it made. 919hp.

Cool! My next guess was going to be in the 900's. :D

Nope, sprint cars are limited to 410ci.

This is going into a supermodified. This is the first supermodified motor that we've done since I've been working here, and it sure turned out nice.

(Not the cars this motor are going into)

Kinsler is a brand of fuel injection. http://www.kinsler.com/page--GM--17.html
I prefer Engler's designs better honestly.

Firing order is the order in which the cylinders light off. Nothing special here.
