70 Double Blown GTO
My 1970 GTO with two blowers. It's 474ci Pontiac engine with a 8-71 blower
on top of a 6-71 blower. This is from the last day of being double blown.
I'm going to one single 8-71 blower and going racing. The front clip was
removed to make it easier to work on. The reason for the double blowers was
not as a power enhancement like many ASSume. I stacked the blowers to have
a car that stood out in the crowd. Most Pro Street cars were starting to
blend together. If you seen one, you had seen them all. That wasn't the
case with this GTO. Al someone had to say was "The double blower GTO" and
people knew which car. I was told it couldn't be done, so I attempted it
and it worked. It stayed that way for almost 2 years. I knew a twin turbo setup would make more HP. I knew I could
have run a 14-71 blower and made more power. That wasn't the point. I
wanted to be different than the other cars in the parking lot, I did that
now it's time to ove on. For all those people who don't understand why,
I'm not going to try and explain it to you anymore. Get over it. I didn't
expect EVERYONE to love it. But you won't forget it.
851 RWHP Twin Turbo 2004 Cobra
851 RWHP Twin turbo 2004 Cobra built and
tuned by www.precision-autospots.com. Car is daily driven.
Update 5-13-2009 - The Mustang has just gone over an engine
freshup as it had over 30k miles on it and making over 800 rwhp!! During
this time the Sullivan intake was removed and a Ported Mach 1 intake took
its place. It now makes 800 rwhp and 725 torque at 19 psi on pump 93. It
is down about 25 hp on the top end but it picked up over 100 torque and 90
rwhp at 4500 RPM! The Transmission and the rear-end are still mostly
stock. The car was just delivered back to its owner in Florida and it got
23 MPG with the AC on doing about 80 MPH. No new 116/93 mix gas numbers.
2008 - Owner reports getting 25 MPG still on the highway. No new track
times and owner has no plans to take back to the track. After all, this is
his beater ;)
2-24-08 // Car now makes over 925 RWHP on 116/93 mix gas. Owner called
Precision the other day to say he handed a ZX-14 its ass from a roll. And
it was only set to about 850 rwhp he said. Amazing car!
Now about the track times. Look, the owner had just spent a fair amount of
money and these were the only runs he made ever with the car and quite
honestly, he did want to break anything. Ford built a great driveline, but
more than doubling the power output tends to make you carefull with your
car. He was not going for anything steller, just a time. The mid 11 sec
pass was on about 675 rwhp setting. The owner used to have a 8 sec. turbo Fox body, so he is not an idiot when
it comes to fast cars. I have seen stockish Cobras grenade their IRS at a
track so to call this guy an idiot, or rag on the shop for protecting his
high HP's stock rearend and tranny just really is not fair.

Mad Max - The Last of the V8 Interceptors Arrives - Part 2
The second day I had the Interceptor, I drove it to work. I spent quite a
bit of time taking people for rides around the block, demonstrating the
lights, siren, blower, etc. Warning - strong language! This is the
Interceptor that is featured in the documentary "Back 2 The Max" -
1927 Ford: Double-Trouble -- /BIG MUSCLE
• Gordon Tronson
In the world of hot-rodding there are few cars that are going to leave as
big an impression as this - the 1927 Ford Model T custom simply known as
"Double-Trouble". It rides on a custom-built tube chassis that's fabricated
from 1.5-inch tube. Is powered by two 4.6-liter modular V8s from Ford with
four, count 'em, FOUR Superchargers for
an approximate power output of around 1,200 hp. It also utilizes the
rear-end (inboard disc brakes and all) from an early Jaguar. It's a rolling
a Hot Wheels car and a masterpiece of engineering that is sure to make all
your naughty bits tingle.
