1464 HP Grand National dyno
Owners name is Jim, this is an 87 GN with a funny car cage, air to liquid Intercooler, SBC V8 (yeah, I know), 106mm single turbo, running on E85. The car Dyno'd 1464 HP but since this was a challenge no torque numbers were shown. The PA system they have sucks and this car brought such a large crowd it took me more than ten minutes just to see the screen and verify the numbers.
He won the Car Craft Dyno Challenge in the turbo class at the 2010 Car Craft Summer Nationals.
2500 HP dyno
I think this is a Buik but not too sure. If anyone knows then correct me please. Big HP Dyno run using 2500 HP turbine unit.
