DT records a 1988 Pontiac Firebird with 920 horsepower and 910 ft-lbs of
torque at Cars & Coffee.
Here are the specs:
'88 Pontiac Formula Firebird
400 cid SBC with a single 76mm turbo
920 hp and 910 ft-lbs at 18 psi Boost (engine Dyno)
T56 trans with Strange Engineering 12 bolt rear axle
Formula 43 RAD14 18" 3 piece wheels (made in Livonia Michigan)
Bilstein shocks/struts; Hotchkis & BMR suspension bits
Burt Reynolds Edition Trans Am BAN3 at the DYNO
We did a complete tune on (Signed by Burt - Car #9) this BRE Trans Am. The
performed by Chad & Pat @ THE SHOP, in Lincoln, NE on a MustangDyno). This car has an LS7
engine, with upgraded cam, lifters, springs and rods, to get it to 625hp at
the crank, with similar torque. Unbelievable car to drive and feel the
power that it has. If you ever get a chance to go for a ride in one of
these cars or to purchase one, they are well worth the money and
investment. Keep i mind this is a one of a kind signed car designed by
Year One and Burt himself, and there will be only a limited production!
Spike 1986 LS1 swaped Camaro
A day at the Dyno for
calibration. April 30, 2011.
About the car (from my brother SpikeIROC) :
- The car is an 1986 Camaro IROC.
- Headlights are eBay cheapos that will soon be swapped for LED
- It put down 400 whp and 390 tq thu a T56 and a fabbed 9" rear end.
- Brakes are C6Z front and rear.
- I swapped hatch to get the cleaner look I was looking for.
- It was trailered to the Dyno because it was not tuned
and I was not willing to risk damaging my new engine.
- The car The wheels are Bonspeed Intense 5. They are now powdercoated
Some more information about my brother's car can be found here :
My LT1 7 PSI Procharger 570rwhp ~650hp Trans Am Dyno Run
This is the exact head that powers Rick Abare's 530 rwhp 3440-3470lb
Trans-Am into the 9's at over 138 mph on pump fuel.
My first Dyno run =
~100hp more than expected even the Dyno operator was confused by
wheel spin...:).Much more to be found in this combo only two runs were
made... rest I tuned on I-75!!
3000rpm = 3psi and 420lb/ft with 240hp
4000rpm = 4psi and 480lb/ft with 360hp
5000rpm = 5psi and 517lb/ft with 495hp
6200rpm - 6psi with 495lb/ft with 570hp
The ONLY mods to this 1996 TA are:
200cc LT1 Porting and Cam package
Forged 383 at about 8.9:1
83lb injectors with my own custom 2 bar tune and 2 bar MAP on stock ECM
Long Tube Pacesetter Headers
Magnaflow 3" Cat Back connected to a Pacesetter Y-Pipe (Im sure this is
just killing power).
Single Walbro 255l/hr pump.
McLeod Street Twin with Alum Flywheel
Everything else (as in.. the entire car) is fully stock including the
Traction Control and AC (it still works) and spare tire (and amps and
So, this car is HEAVY, and ran 124mph in the 1/4 mile. The ZR1 might run
132mph and is about 900lbs lighter.. so YEP that just about confirms HP.
