519 RWHP Turbo Lincoln Mark VIII Dyno Run
This is my buddy's turbo-charged 4.6L
DOHC 32V 1993 Lincoln Mark VIII getting tuned and pulling a good run on the
Dyno producing 518.6
HP at the wheels and 555.8 ft lbs of torque! The car was looking rough at
the time the video was taken but it continues as a work in progress. It's
much better looking now.
Supercharged DOHC Thunderbird on a Mustang Dyno
Final #'s are 343 rwhp and 314 tq. at 6k Rpms.I plan to take i to other Dyno also.
Finally got it tuned right, thanks to Dave and Kevin for getting it done.
Drove 4.5 hrs each way to get it done but it is so worth it. Car feels much
faster and stronger and runs 10X
better. On the way back home i averaged 24 mpg.This was a MustangDyno which they told me it has a
nickname "heart breaker" therefore #'s are lower then the other Dyno. People told me that i am
probably closer to 400 rwhp. Anyways enjoy the video!

Leaf-Blower Supercharging a 1978 Chevrolet Monza Spyder! - Roadkill Episode 16
On this episode of Roadkill, it's fun with Leaf Blowers. Experts on the
Internet said it would never work. That's never stopped Freiburger and
Finnegan, and this time on Roadkill the guys put the theory to the test:
can hardware-store leaf blowers supercharge an engine and make power? Step
one was buying a '78 Monza Spyder with a 305 V8 and a four-speed stick.
Step two was to take it to the shop of HOT ROD Drag Week racer Jeff Lutz to
tune it up, swap the engine to a 350, Dyno test it with five leaf
blowers, and do a whole bunch of needless burnouts. Step three was to drive
the Monza to Willmington, Ohio, for the East Coast Timing Association's
Ohio Mile event, a standing-mile race where they'd find out if leaf-blower
power adds up to more speed in the real world. The outcome? Who really
cares? Because on Roadkill, it's always about the adventure. And more
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.
