it. The car still ran a 11.0@128. Stock block, Anderson N-111 cam, AFR

Engine Building Part 1: Blocks
This is the first in an engine building series that focuses on blocks. I
talk about general machining and options for rebuilding or starting a new

Why Are D.S.S. Main Supports So Important?
It seems that everybody today is trying to get more and more power from
their engines. Increasing engine RPM's, or adding Nitrous, turbos' or Superchargers are some sure ways to increase
power, but they can be very tough on durability. Additional stresses
generated by running higher RPM's or using power adders are transferred
directly through the pistons, rods and crankshaft to the block's main
webbing. Commonly, the reciprocating force can overwhelm the main bearing
caps and the fasteners that hold them in place. Under heavy loads, the
caps will shift or "walk" from side to side. This movement is transferred
to the ends of the main cap fasteners, causing the threads to become
fatigued. Eventually the main web cracks, leading to a loss in oil
pressure and possibly total destruction of the block and internal
components. To combat this problem, Ford Racing offers Splayed Four-Bolt
main racing blocks. While excellent pieces, the price puts them out of
reach for the average enthusiast. This is where the D.S.S. Main Support
System comes in. Starting at $329.95 the D.S.S. Main Support System is a
very cost-effective way to add strength to a production block without
breaking the bank.
Made of 3/4" Billet 6061-T6 aluminum, the D.S.S. Main Support System
effectively dampens damaging harmonics, virtually eliminating main bearing
walk. The Main Support Plate is fastened to the main caps using custom
ARP main studs (included), effectively tying all five main caps together.
By adding another main web structure you dramatically increase the block's
strength, helping both block and crankshaft life. Our Main Support System
makes it possible to produce 650-plus horsepower from a production
Dyno Pull Mustang 331ci.

were 311hp @ the wheels and 354 ft-lbs. of torque. The car is my daily
driver, so I wanted a mild 91 tune and here is what is sounds like!

Apparently the builder's name is Yesus Wilder and he only used three
materials to build the engine. Stainless steel, aluminum, and bronze.
All credits to him.

Super car driver idiots [NO pics, only videos]
I got bored with all the "super car crashes"-videos here on YouTube that
only contained PICTURES, CRAPPY MUSIC or/and clips of pure racing cars on
official racing events.
This compilation DOES NOT include pure racing cars on official racing
events - only real life FAILures on the STREETS, made by people with more
money than driving skills...
(Though, even the best car drivers can crash too of course.)
Notice 1: The "Dodge Ram" may not be a super car, but still it's a SRT10
with the 8.3L Viper V10 which produces 510hp. Pretty super for a pick up,
don't you think? It has more power than several of the cars in this video.
The intention with this video was to show that skills doesn't come with
Notice 2: Tire is the preferred spelling in the U.S. and Canada. Tyre is
preferred in most varieties of English outside North America. And I'm from
Sweden. So please think outside your box (country), you who claims "tyre"
is incorrect spelling.
