383 Chevrolet Low-Stress Breeak-In on Simtester
This is a 383 Chevy stroker motor that was going into an off-road
pre-runner, here it is getting a low-stress break-in on my Simtester. The
engine runs for about 40 minutes as I will typically see a 2-4 amp decrease
in drive motor amperage and a 2-5 rpm increase. Both of these numbers
represent a decrease in friction as the engine breaks-in.

Applied Flow Technology - Competition Cylinder Heads
Applied Flow Technology began in 1990 - but the seeds were planted much
earlier. Mark Atkins, the founder of A.F.T. began repairing and modifying
sports cars in the mid 1970's. He continued honing his mechanical skills
through the balance of that decade and into the next while campaigning a
small block Chevrolet powered drag car which ultimately ran high nine
second E.T.'s at over 133 M.P.H. in the quarter mile. This car he
completely built himself, including the engine and chassis. It was early
experiences with subcontracted machine work of substandard quality which
prompted Mark to begin doing the work himself. With the purchase of some
simple valve equipment and a flow bench in 1990 Applied flow Technology was
born. Since that time A.F.T. has steadily acquired both valuable experience
and state of the art equipment to assure you of the best possible accuracy
and performance. Our race record spans the gamut from 2 SCCA runoff wins in
the GT category to multiple wins in the 358 modified class at the Syracuse
mile track. Our heads and manifolds set the standard wherever they compete.
While Applied Flow Technology is best known for our race winning dirt and
asphalt stock car inductions, we have also produced heads for everything
from 600 plus horsepower Hondas to 12
cylinder Ferraris. We are currently in the early stages of development on
Ducati motorcycle head modifications, an area of the business in which we
hope to see significant growth in the coming years. There is very little
you can dream up that we cannot handle successfully. Along with cylinder
head machining, porting and flow development we also offer complete
aluminum head welding and repair. We routinely machine custom valves, seats
and guides to customer's specifications. We also perform port
modifications, which are subsequently disguised, as well as stock
appearing, if needed. While the main thrust of business at Applied Flow
Technology is and always will focus on cylinder heads, our capabilities
extend well beyond those areas. We have a Hines computerized spin balancer
to handle any engine balancing need. We also do custom piston and block
machining for our customers. Call us with all your performance/competition
