With the weather warming up we have been very busy lately. Seems we can't get things done fast enough to get caught up. Hopefully your spring projects are off to a great start and your ready for the upcoming season.
We are almost ready to put the new KRE Warp 6 Headed combo on the dyno. I Just need to make lines for the new dry sump oiling system and we will be ready to go. Unfortunately I have not had time to do the write up on the canted valve heads this month. All of the data is gathered I just have to put aside some time and write it up. Hopefully next month.
Other than that, we are looking forward to getting together with the guys from Hammer Time Racing this weekend. Talk to you next month.
We recently completed this build for one of our customers, Charlie Bowers. Charlie has been planning this build for quite some time and we were finally able to get the engine done for him last month. There is really NOTHING quite like hearing a high horsepower Poncho on the dyno that is for sure.
This 535 cid MR-1A engine is equipped with a custom 55mm solid roller cam and a set of KRE 400 cfm High Port Heads. The engine also has GRP rods, Scat forged crankshaft, and Ross gas ported pistons. The induction is handled with a set of custom configured PRO Systems 1150 carbs on top of a KRE sheet metal intake with CNCed billet runners! We also set this engine up with our custom engraved TIP logo covers and one of our high end TIP evac kits. This combo made 1025 horsepower at 7200 rpm and 800 ft lbs of torque at 6400! This combo will be installed in Charlie's 1966 GTO. Charlie hopes to have the new engine in the car by Norwalk, we can't wait to see the finished project!
