Finally ran a 10 last night, been trying for a couple of years now and we
finally got the car running right and put down two 10 second runs and
became the first ever 10 second Saab in the USA, car had a little more in
it too and we did this a mile high at Bandimere Drag Strip outside Denver
Colorado. Best run was 10.615 at 139.54mph. This was Street Wars, grudge
match racing, real street light and no tree. No times on the boards, but we
still got our time slips...
1,600 Wheel Horses on the Dyno...
Anytime you take a couple F2 chargers feeding a whole bunch of cubes and
add methanol even on only half of max Boost it is quite a show.. Intake gasket that
didn't want to play cut the day short. Around 1,600whp through an auto!
Lots left in the car and the Dyno. Over 1K ftlbs by 4
thousand... Easily the new top HP record for the Dyno without even trying yet.
Had manners like a street car just a bit more bark.
Built by Mark Werdehausen of Tydo racecars. A few of the components
came from Taliaferro machine shop. On the Superflow Autodyn 30 in
Dyno Nova Twin Turbo
This is another 417 car that spent some time on my Dyno. With the right fuel pump
it made the top HP on the power tour! Mostly part throttle in these
videos. You can spot the issue on the Dyno screen.
