Pure Vision's '72 Gran Torino (GTS) on the dyno
This 1972 Gran Tornio built by Pure Vison has a 514 Super Cobra Jet big block Ford engine breathing through a custom 3" Exhaust and SpinTech mufflers. This is close to the final pull after a few hours of tuning the dual Edelbrocks. I don't recall for sure but I the final power figures were in the low 500s at the wheel. I do know torque was flat across the board and more than enough to turn those 20 inch 335 Pirelli's into massive billows of smoke! For the observant folks out there, this is the actual car that was the inspiration for Fenix's car in the new Fast and Furious movie. It was at two of the "cast calls" before it was even a running car!

Fast and Furious Hammer
Here's the Pure Vision built Hammer (1970 Roadruner) doing some doughnuts at the Fast and Furious press day. That's over 740hp coming from a Nelson Racing Engines built supercharged 500ci wedge engine easily roasting up Michelin's 345/35 19 tires! Catch Steve Strope with his hands out the window mid spin.... show off!
Dyno pulls - Lee Sicilio's Hemi Daytona Landspeed car
Car holds a number of records in "Classic" category at Bonneville. Current engine is a 498 CID Ray Barton Hemi with FAST XFI injection. These are the last two pulls to verify AFR and ignition at 7000+rpm before heading to Bonneville later this year, trying for a record in the Production category. Although we were not logging horsepower on these loaded pulls (not important) - the engine made 930 hp on Barton's Superflow engine Dyno. Special thanks to import tuner Steve Kan, who allowed us to use his facility in Fort Worth!
