Dyno-Tuning the Draguar's 696 Horsepower Supercharged Small Block Chevy! - HOT ROD Unlimited Ep. 35
It's time for motor mayhem! On this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited we head to
Westech Performance Group with Mike Finnegan to Dyno-tune a new engine for the
Draguar, the 1974 Jaguar XJ12 with a small-block Chevy under the hood that
he and Freiburger bought for $1,000 and installed a Supercharger onto in a parking lot during episode
7 of Roadkill. After the Supercharger
upgrade the guys road-tripped the dilapidated car from San Francisco to
Sacramento for a drag race. With the summertime air temps hovering around
113 degrees, the worn out 350 overheated and Freiburger only managed to run
a 15.30 ¼ mile ET at Sacramento Raceway.
Looking for redemption, Freiburger ordered a new 383ci long block from
Blueprint Engines, a definite upgrade over the old powerplant. Though the
new longblock is only rated to 600hp it features forged pistons and rods
and a forged crankshaft, which means that the guys can turn up the Boost and make double the power of the old
engine. The engine effortlessly made 650hp with 91 octane fuel in the tank
but Finnegan was feelin' froggy so he added 118 octane race fuel and upped
the Boost to 15 psi in an attempt to
make 700hp with the 383. Did the engine leave the Dyno shop in one piece? Check
out the video to see!
The engine we used is a BluePrint Engines' 383 Long Block designed for
HOT ROD Unlimited appears every other Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

Tearing Down an Original Chevy 283 (in One Minute)
http://www.horsepowermonster.com -- A
full engine teardown is boring, but now when it's all squeezed into a
minute! This video is mostly just for fun. The engine is a 283 out of a '57
Chevy, and I think it will eventually make a great little motor for a
roadster. The car had been sitting in a field for nearly 20 years, so I
knew it would be in rough shape, but the squirrel's nest in the lifter
valley was a bit of a surprise--don't blink or you'll miss it.
If you are interested in 283s in general, make sure to check out the
additional information in my website at the link below. Thanks!

Supercharged 283 chevy
283 supercharged sbc .030 over, 12% overdriven, Rhs heads, Lunati solid
flat tappet 632 lift, balanced, forged, two 600 holleys. Engine has to be
partly taken apart later to be painted and finish polishing, just wanted to
hear it, while I am getting my 57 chevy ready. I also have a 458 c.i. set
up like this small block but gas will be a little cheaper besides this
little fast reving sbc sounds really kool, I think I am going to like it.
Engine built by G&M Automtive, Thanks Mikey.
