77 Plantinum Bandit @ The Dyno!
Here is a quick upload of the Dyno session we did with the
Platinum Bandit just after the TA Nats this year.
The Platinum Bandit, is an original 77 SE 4spd TA, that we converted over
to a lot of modern technology to make it a fun road ready car with a lot of
power. The 474 stroked engine we recently built for it with the help of
Butler Performance, will be featured in the next issue of High Performance
Pontiac Magazine. Pushing 585HP off of 89 Ethanol fuel, with plenty of
vacuum and drive-ability, really makes this car come alive! I will be
posting a video of all the updated components and their manufacturers soon.

Platinum Bandit New 455 Stroker Motor - 580HP
This is a video of the new motor we build with Butler Performance, to be
customized as a high Horse Power motor that was designed to drive on the
road and use 89 Octaine Fuel. With the 60 over 455 1971 Pontiac Block, it
was stroked to 474 and with a combination of multiple components, 10:1
compression, we were able to acheave a 580HP engine that you can drive
around town, across country, etc. using 89 Octaine gas! Look for it to be
featured in an upcoming High Performance Pontiac Magazine for full
details... Build your own Monster Motor and join us on the Bandit Run next
