Pontiac 400 final dyno pull
Engine built and Dyno'd by Al at New Generation
Racing Engines of Fenwick ON. Anyone in Ontario that needs work would be
worth going to see him.
A Pontiac 400 bored .030" over so now a 406 with comp cams extreme energy
hydraulic cam and lifters, roller timing chain and roller rockers.
Lightened and balanced Scat crank. Ignition upgraded to MSD HEI with Accel
8.8 mm sprial core wires. 6X-4 heads ported and port matched to ported
factory dual plane intake manifold. Factory 750 CFM Quadrajet reworked by
Cliff Ruggles performance.
PONTIAC GTO Judge (1971 455cid, the differences basic supertuning can make)
Those who know me well, know that I always beat "SUPERTUNING"
"SUPERTUNING" "SUPERTUNING" into the ground. This video shows the
difference minor tuning can do (This is minor because a 1971 GTO's fuel/ign
calibrations are already geared for performance, so there's not as much
improvement you can make like you'd be able to on say - a late 70s
smogger). But on larger scales, HUGE differences can be made, as much
difference as adding performance parts alone. The more the car is severely
out of tune/adjust------which happens more with the more mods you make,
then the more you'll gain by supertuning it. There's another vid on YT
where an Olds 455 was built with performance parts to be totally streetable
but achieve 1hp per cubic inch. After they got the recipe of perfect parts
all together they were disappointed when she only Dynoed at 320hp. But luckily
they did not give up! After the proper ign-curve/timing & carb adjusts were
made, the engine jumped from 320 up to 455hp!! No doubt all the new
cam/intake/head mods put the old fuel/spark adjustments badly out of
calibration for the NEW BREATHING ABILITY. Also with things like dual quads
(especially to engines not originally equipped wit them), your adjustments
are most likely going to be way off and need calibration even more. There's
lots of dual quad cars out there not running well for this reason, however
the few that have been calibrated perfectly (EVERY adjustment set for the
best "stop watch" time, etc) truly do run like a bat out of hell!
Sneak peak at a one off custom Trans-Am and GTO Concept /Camaro Morph
These are the new 2010/11 Camaro's that have been
completely customized by the tallented gentlemen at OTTO body shop in
Nebraska. Great guys and maybe an even greater pair of cars that bring out
the boy in any real american car lover. Hats off to these guys and there
vision. Ps In the video I guessed and said they base car was a 2008 or 9
Camaro. Its a 2011 come
to find out.
1969 Pontiac GTO Judge vs. 2006 Custom Pontiac GTO - Generation Gap: GTOs
Cast your vote here:
Today on “Generation Gap,” we’re visiting the Lingenfelter
Collection. Known for Lingenfelter Performance Engineering, Ken
Lingenfelter was kind enough to let us experience some of his personal
cars. Being able to check a few cars off our bucket list, we decided to
compare GTOs. Davin has picked the aggressive muscle of a 1969 Pontiac GTO
Judge, equipped with a 366 HP 400 V-8 High Output engine with Ram Air III.
Matt picked a bit of a cheater 2006 Pontiac Custom GTO. The modern GTO is
straight from GM Performance with a Twin turbo LS2 with 750 HP. Which one would you rather
Generation Gap appears every other Tuesday on the Motor Trend youtube
