|Customer Spotlight Brian Frank's '68 Bird|
This is Brian Frank's '68 Firebird convertible. Brian upgraded his 400 cid engine with one of Tin Indian Performance's stroker kits to build a build 463 inches of PONTIAC POWER! The engine makes 600 hp @ 5800 rpm and 596 ft lbs of torque ON PUMP GAS! Another one of our pump gas friendly combinations with a very mild idle. This combo idels at 950 rpm and pulls 13.9 inches of vacuume.
I have had the opportunity to ride and drive in this Bird and it is a very fun ride! The combo uses a set of 325 cfm E heads CNC ported with a Tin Indian Performance custom ground solid roller camshaft. Edelbrock performer RPM supports a HP 1000 4150 style carb. I sure would like to get this combo back and try a KRE North Wind intake on it!
On September 25th we ventured out to Summit Motor Sports Park in Norwalk, Ohio and reset the Naturally Aspirated Pontiac record! Testing data showed we still have some room for improvement and we hope to get out once or twice more before making any changes to the KRE High Port Headed power plant. The MR-1 powered Tin Indian Performance Dragster ran a best of 7.14 @ 186.51. We also ran a 7.19 that day @ 187 mph which is our best MPH to date as well. We now have the quickest and fastest naturally aspirated Pontiac in the world!
