WAR440 Debuts at Meguiar's Motorex
Mark Arblaster's WAR440 has been through a few rebuilds in it's life, but
nothing like the lastest build which has seen it rebuilt from front to
rear. The engine currently makes 1728hp at the flywheel on E85 and is
street drivable. Mark planned to run the car at Drag Week in the US but
weather issues prevented track testing and he decided to leave it until
next year. For the full feature check out the latest Street Machine

The Charger has now been sold but thanks for the favorable comments.
Just for clarification in response to some comments received we are fully
aware this was not a Hemi motor and never claimed it to be.As mentioned in
the video it is the decals only that follow in the style of the RT-which of
course had the Hemi motor!

Arblaster and Grunt Files share with you the footage of the process. 1970
265 Hemi Six Dyno Tests @ COME Racing - Triple Webers and Megasquirt
Brett, Sam, Ads and Shane Dynotest Bretts 265 Chrysler
Valiant Hemi Six Cylinder engine with a Custom Megasquirt Fuel Injection
& Crank Fired Coilpack Ignition system on Sam's Engine Dyno.
It made about 300 Hp (Ok, 297) with lots more tuning to do in the car, but
ran very well with even the limited amount of tuning time we had on the Dyno. Tested with the
Weber Carbs as a Baseline, then the Megasquirt Injection to compare. The
O2 Based AutoTune function is Great ! We had it dialled in to the Ballpark
Map with about 10 minutes work.... Later in the car.. we will "engage" the
Nitrous System ! :)
Looking Forward to getting it in the Charger and having some more time to
