These guys are having a lot of trouble even getting up to the
600 HP mark, plus I can't believe how many had problems, an
didn't make it. So far the BBC is on top making an average
of 669.66 Torque and 581.66 H.P. They get three pulls,
the rpm range is 2500 rpms to 6500 rpms were in day 4.
Tomorrow is the last day, Jon Kasse is up tomorrow with the
Pontiac motor. You can check it out here. Gee I wonder what
Happen to the Kauffman's they were suppose to enter two
motor's with their new block, an high port heads. To bad
we would have gotten to see their head's and block go head to head
with the Tiger heads, maybe the name Jon Kasse made them
nervious. If that was me, I'd made God damn srue, my entry was in.
It would give us the opportunity to see how close these new heads
are to each other, instead of hearing all this hype. Plus show us how
capable engine builders they really are, after all aren't these guys
suppose to be the engine Grur's of the Pontiac world, we've already
seen what Butler can do, plus no excusses, we now have the after
market heads and block to compete with.
Here's another thing that gets me, it seems like they don't want any
competition, it's ok, when the articles that appear in HPP an PE
are control buy them, meaning their dyno, but the real engine building
world, is making combinations to fit the customers needs, to me isn't
this Challenge ( with set rules for every buddy ) the same as if I called
and said this is what I want, here here is my limitions, 509 CID motor
and I want the rpm range between 2500 to 6500 rpms. I think the
averaged rules are perfect, that's were a pump gas street
will apperate. I guess the Pontiac Engine builders don't need
to prove anything, when they can control the hype, sad isn't.
AllPontiac srue in hell made srue Kasse had every thing he needed. Hey
maybe I'm worng and Kauffman will show up tomorrow, really hope so.
The Cid limit is 509, and it looks like you can use any after market block
and heads as long as the meet the OEM configuration. So my guess is
Jon Kasse's entry is with and IAll block and Tiger heads, this should be
very interesting. Andy Mitchell who built the 505 Hot Rod Pump gas motor
would have defiantly gave these guys a run for there money, using E-heads
His average would be right around 650 HP, but remember Kasse has like
90 dyno pulls on this Pontiac motor, from what I hear. It's been said by
BOP that Kasse is using Nunzi's bearing spacer, which allows you to put
a 3" mains in a 455 block, don't under stand what's up with that, aren't
all IAll block, 3" main blocks?
So much for Andy being a Kool Aid drinker[kool] [yuk]
