11-5-12 smokey 5.3 non intercooled dyno runs 697rwhp on 3 bad cyls no nitrous
now this motor has always smoked but today whew! she is smokey! hahaha
gunna tear it down adn do new pistons and rods and hand file fit the rings, and see what else i can do, shame on me for never really doing a compression test ill never know if it was good or not before i started, still made 697rwhp on a bad slug! 3cyls have low compression currently lol
11-12-12 motor teardown prep for rebuild
tore it down to find out what we expected, broken ringlands on the tight
cylinders and some bent rods, wich is common for gen3 guts at 650+rwhp,
looks like everything looks good! im throwing in some gen4 used pistons and
rods hopefully getting them tomorrow and hand gapping them loose for Boost!
5.3 Turbo LSx Fairmont on the Dyno.....
Here is the Fairmont on the Dyno yesterday. Numbers were all
wonky, but the torque was a corrected 692 RWTQ. With this car, torque and
HP generally mimic each other. Smoke show is a new development that popped
up after I changed the oil. I was thinking it was due to the very loose
ring gap and the 5w-30 I changed it with. So, I went to a conventional
10w-40 after this pull. Still smokes as a result of "gravity," as in when
in reverse, coming to a stop, turns or when it is on an incline. I think I
have an oil return line issue. Going to pull it off and see if there is a
clog or obstruction.
5.3 LS 327 dyno test
This is an Episode of the Car Junkie TV show "Suck Squeeze Bang Blow" which
I edited when I worked for the company. It is a Dyno test of the LS 327 GM crate

just got it done the other day wanted to show you guys what its like
driving around nicely, i have been working on the trans shift tables, and
lockup figuring out what i want. trans cooler isnt working well enough so

was a quick drive i apologize but it should hold you over for a little haha
11-2-12 fairmont motor is ok again
man this thing just wont quit, look how nice this pistons are. as i explain
in the video i believe i lifted a head because im finally making big power
and also because i bypassed the Intercooler, inlet temps were fine
below 120f i was running 26lbs of Boost though! on weak tty bolt and only
65ftlbs tq! haha
50psi boost 1200+hp Nissan RB30 - Ethanol E98
Nissan RB30 SOHC 3L engine built and tuned by JPC making over 1200hp on
Ethanol fuel. The engine still retains a factory block and crank.
Improvements come from a custom JPC turbocharger, manifolding, roller rockers and cam
gear. Fuel is fed via ID2000cc injectors and an Autronic computer system.
This engine has previously run 8.79 at 160.25mph (with less power) in a
full weight (3250lb) Holden VL commodore through stock suspension,
Powerglide transmission, 9in rear end and 28x9in slicks.

Not very often you find a total sleeper truck of this magnitude. This
regular cab Z71 has a Forged 402 stroker motor with an 80mm turbo. He runs Drag Radials all the way around
and this thing launches like a rocket. Its pretty crazy to watch a truck
spin 4 drag radials going down the track.
Also he drove the truck to the track which is about 35 miles from his house
and then drove it back home.
This was filmed at Holiday Beach Raceway on Test N Tune night.
