Thanks-Steve Brule for all the guidance and superb tuning skills.,
Chris starkweather and Jordan woods for the advice, support and tools. If you guys hadnt let me tear the thing apart in your shop in the first place, i never would have gotten it back together in time to race. thanks!
Everyone at Paul Pfaff Racing Engines for the excellent machine work, advice, and killer hydraulic harmonic balancer installer tool! you guys rock! everyone should take their DIY motor projects there. These guys are super cool and will bend over backwards to help you reach your goal even if they aren't doing the assembly.
The crew at CP Pistons, especially Mike Lozano- you taught me alot and the machinework on those pistons if phenominal.
Mike Thermos at Nitrous Supply- what can i say? that fogger system kicks butt. Thanks for the tune-up.
Robert Jonsson for always coming through in the clutch. Like always, I couldn't have done this without you. Now go get some sleep!
Tim- Finish assmembling the engine on my tailgate in your driveway at 11:30pm last night-priceless! thanks so much.
Joe Cole- the only guy i know that'll stop by the dyno cell in his work clothes just to say "hi" and end up wrenching and staying til the tools are put away and its time to go home. thanks!
my phone has been blowin up all day and i'm sorry to those i couldnt respond to earlier. i get crappy reception in the dyno cell and the best i could do was text message when i had time.
here's the numbers:
1041 horsepower at 7,100 rpm naturally aspirated
1284 horsepower at 6,900 rpm on the squeeze.
We didn't lean on the n20 at all and I'm sure we left quite a bit on the table, but i'm totally satisfied.
