    Pretty impressive DMP. What parts have you changed to now and how do they help in comparison to what was used then? in other words are the new parts better? and in what ways.

    Like stated this truck has a 2.3 Whipple and a shot of juice on it. The owner is selling the 2.3 and looking for a 3.4 if anyone is interested. Not sure how long the trans will last since it is stock.

    Heres another vid of it on a dyno day I had.

    So that's basically the same motor as mine other than I have the billet I beam rods right Stan? Mine was built summer of '06. My poor little Eaton just doesn't feed it very well. Really makes me realize how much I need a bigger blower. I guess I'll just have to see what I can get the MP to do next year.

    Now we use different cams (brand and grinds), different bearings, different coatings (only an option), different heads, different piston design, etc.

    We are always in the process of learning what parts, combinations, and designs are the most efficient. Right now the combinations we are building are making some great numbers. We have been finishing up several new custom combinations this month too, another 4v, another big bore, another stroker, etc. Should have pics and numbers and ET's from these soon. They should all be very impressive.


    Yes Matt it is pretty much the same thing and uses the same parts except you opted for the better billet I-beam rods iirc. The Eaton is definitely holding you back.

    We have several customers powering their built engines and they are all pretty much the same. Haybale, you, LA Lightning, and a handful of others all make around 470-490hp and 570-590tq on medium boost with a conservative tune. FFS
