DaSilva Sick Kids Car Show 2011
I brought the Camaro
out to Joe DaSilva's Car Show and fund raiser for Toronto Sick Kids
hospital. His shop is well equipped and spotless. Joe was also featuring Dyno pulls for a small
fee and donation. A lot of people took advantage to see what their ride
would put down to the rollers. I had a great time and did some fine tuning
on my Camaro as well. I
am happy to say that I have NO issues with the new RacePumps piston fuel
pump (mechanical). The fuel pressure was set at 7 psi and stayed at set
point throughout the rpm band. The morning Dyno pull came in at 534rwhp and
457 torque. Joe treated everyone well and even suggested to come back in
the afternoon for another pull. I decided to change the tune by increasing
the jet and reducing the timing since the A/F ratio was a tad lean and I am
using 94 octane pump gas. I was about to go on when I made this short
video. Look on my channel and a friend took the actual Dyno run and I have to say I was
very pleased. Will have to see, in a couple of weeks if the car can run a 9
sec time. The car put down 595rwhp and 510 lb/ft torque and the crowd just
loved it and so did I! The RacePumps fuel pump helped me have what I call a
breakthrough! Go to giantmonkey101's channel to see the actual run!
New slicks and Trick Springs installed....results
The day after the ArmDrop Live at Cayuga. The car ran great and was leaving
well. I lost against a faster car
on Saturday in first round. Today, Sunday I want to fine tune how the
engine comes up on the trans brake and try some different rpm launch set
points. The front end work made such a difference and now that the body is
raised I can run those big slicks I bought instead of using them as paper
Tim Vs Harry
Tim (in the red Monza) is racing Harry in his new 1966 Mustang. I still talk to Harry
because he has a BBC under the hood.....lol. I raced Tim 1st round and beat
him out, but he bought back and now is in the finals. It was a good race,
but someone got a sunburn!
This is a 1966 Mustang
Super Pro Drag Car. The engine is based on a 460 Ford. Very light car with
a tube chassis. My buddy can't wait to go racing!
Alright, this is the race against Harry O. I ran a 9.46 et and Harry ran a
9.52 et. Beat Harry by 0.0068 of a second or about one foot. Harry taught
me a lesson on the starting line, but like Warren Johnson did in Pro Stock,
I drove around him. Harry is tough to beat!
Stan's Dyno Day
Setting up the tunnel ram on my BBC. Two 750 DP HP Holley carbs. Looks
promising on initial tune. Starts and idles well with great throttle
response. Very short duration solid roller cam (email@example.com") with Pro
Topline heads. Engine made 519 RWHP. Car weighs 3530 lbs with driver.
Initial 1/8 mile runs at 6.47et @ 106.65mph. The LM-1 was not giving good
data (bung too close to end of collector extension) but relocated O2 sensor
and I'm looking forward to getting a handle on the A/F ratio.
