Early launch tuneup tests after the discovery of the n/m dt als, and before incorporating the later to be discovered afterburner augmentation.

The Ultimate Turbo Anti-lag System
A close up encounter with a new turbocharger anti-lag system that will soon change
the face of turbo drag racing forever.
A 224cid Buick V6 spooling a monster Borg Warner Airwerks S510/91mm turbo.
These tests were performed with the afterburner set at a low initial
setting. The full potential and limits of the afterburner feature are yet
to be explored.
This system is very capable of pushing the 3200 rpm stall speed (no Nitrous, zero Boost) of this torque converter to over 6200
rpm stall speed in 2 seconds, and in the same time generating over 220 kPa
manifold pressure. Impressive only if you fully understand the demanding
spooling requirements of the Airwerks S510 turbocharger.
Pro light launch tests with the newly enhanced Nitrous/Methanol ALS coming up next.
Update: Latest performance of the car, 2/12/11, 5.57 @ 126 mph in the 1/8
mile. 1.27 60'. The ALS activated for only 1.7 seconds, and shut down
before launching the car from the starting line.
In the comments section I have made entries that give detailed descriptions
of how this system works and basics on how to set it up.
This system is far from optimized. Hopefully others will play with this
system and make further impressive advances with it.
Warning: For Advanced Tuners Only!
Update: There was a substantial leak discovered in a tee fitting in a MAP
signal line that, at the time of this video, fed both the fuel pressure
regulator and the Boost gauge.
Trying to judge the Boost level with
the fuel pressure and Boost gauges
in this video would be inaccurate. The Boost level that was recorded by the ECM
during these tests was in the range of 14 psi. The Boost gauge in this video (upper left gauge)
is showing only 6 or 7 psi Boost due
to the signal line leak.
DRW / Buick Alky V6 finding the limits
Finding the limits of turbo, tire,
suspension and fueling. In the first two passes you can hear tire chatter
all through second gear. After reducing the Boost, the tire chatter stopped.
The old T76 turbo setup was being used
at this time.
DRW / Buick V6 Alky v3.2 20L video test
My first in-car video. Preliminary tuneup with a new combination. First
video since the change to the Borg Warner Airwerks S510/91mm turbo. Still chipping away at the initial spooling
problem. Slowly, but surely making progress, though.
Have you had your daily trip down the track yet? Kick back and get out your
National Dragster or favorite go fast parts catalog. You'll be sitting in
the staging lanes for a little bit.
Shortcuts: go to 6:30 minutes, or 7:02 minutes.

Grand National at Pinks All Out Bakersfield 2009
Saturday 9/12/09. First qualifying run at Pinks All Out.
Just a little turbo lag at the start.
Not to worry. Began reeling him in after the 330" mark.
Yep. Got him at the finish line with plenty to spare.
The start of this run was on a pro light with absolutely no turbocharger pre-spooling before the launch. The
engine was brought up to 2400 rpm after staging, which happened to be the
stall speed of a very tight torque converter. Anyone that has had to spool
a very large turbocharger with a very
small engine can appreciate the significance of this run.
224 cid V6, 91mm FI91X (B/W Airwerks S510/91).
Boost really didn't start to build
until well after the 60 ft. mark.
The Boost level maxed at 27.1 psi on
John Rains 284 MPH Twin Turbo Buick V6 Record Pass Bonneville - Tuned By Shane T
John Rains races his 89 Pontiac Trans Am turbo Coupe in D/BGC at the SCTA World Finals at
Bonneville Speedway. This run is the first part of a class record
previously held at 265. This run was a stout 284.909 MPH and was done on 22
PSI of Boost.
The 274 Cubic Inch V6 which was built by Ken Duttweiler features twin turbos, icewater to air aftercooler and
Water Injection. The engine uses racing gasoline and is controlled by a
MoTeC M8 Engine Management System and CDI-8 Ignition box which were
calibrated by Shane Tecklenburg (Tuned By Shane T)
Grand National Early Test Run of Alky Buick V6 v2.0
One of the first outings with the car in 2004 with engine build version
2.0. This initial tune-up on the car did not yet include Nitrous oxide injection to spool the turbo. I was still finalizing the volumetric
efficiency table and was testing a THM200C transmission for high horsepower use. Shift points
were around 6,600 rpm and the max Boost was set at 18 psi using a T70 turbonetics turbocharger at the time. CRANK IT UP!

GN Northwest Stage 2 Buick V6 in the 7s!
Gene Fleury runs firstname.lastname@example.org in the GN Northwest Stage 2 Buick running

Congratulations to Gene on his first 7 second pass!
1966 Buick Convertible Barn Find Rescue, Part 1
This is the story of a '66 Buick Special convertible that had been
abandoned in Arizona in 1978 by the family of Rick Pewe, editor of 4-Wheel
& Off-Road magazine. In 2011, the guys from HOT ROD Magazine, in
conjunction with Rick, spent four days bringing the car back from the dead
with plans to drive it home from Phoenix to Los Angeles. This is part 1,
with the hacking fun the guys had rescuing the car. Look for part two,
loaded with road-trip hilarity. The story is printed in the September 2011
issue of HOT ROD Magazine.
8 sec Grand National High Boost Launch Test, S510 91mm Turbo!
Quick spool, high Boost launch test
with the formidable Borg Warner Airwerks S510/91mm turbo. In the hunt for a max Boost launch tune.
The target launch rpm and Boost
levels in this test were reached in 1.8 seconds. This level proved to be a
bit too much for this suspension setup.
The stabilizing feature in the editing section was used on this video.
