Roger Followell's Geared Drives LS1 Engine for Legendary P-51
Bud Warren starts the Geared Drives the LS1 Chevrolet firewall forward engine package with Geared Drives PSRU prior to delivery to its owner, Roger Followell. I heard the engine start up so I grabbed my camera...this was the very first start and it did start first time. We are running it gently since there is no load on the engine.
Larry Ketterlings P-51 Engine
Geared Drives FWF engine package for P-51 at idle and run up very conservatively since we were testing ignition only and there was no prop installed. Note how smoothly the engine transitions from low RPM to higher RPM. Nice rumbling sound through the short custom Exhaust, volume increased via the collector with baffling within to provide back pressure and guard against shock cooling the valves.
