Overhead Cam at 14K RPM
This video shows an operational cutaway of a BMW S1000RR — a 193HP
superbike — bumping against its 14,200RPM redline. A cam and valvetrain
at 118 cycles per second is an amazing sight (and sound)
600+hp Datsun dyno session
series of Dyno pulls,
with a best of 607 hp
This was the first Dyno session where my car
exceeded 600hp to the wheels. The runs were performed at Motor City
Motorsports in Riverview, MI on a Dynojet 248C (yes it was
calibrated properly). The backfires at the end of some of the pulls were
just from the rev limiter's 8000rpm fuel cut - this introduces unburned
oxygen into the Exhaust and burns any
previously unburned fuel from the rich mixture prior to hitting the fuel
cut. The engine is a stroked Nissan L-series, 3.0 litres with Diamond
custom forged pistons and Cunningham rods. the head is an N42 with a fair
amount of port and combustion chamber work,- ceramic coatings on the
pistons, chambers and ports. Also has a custom cam grind from Elgin. The
turbo is a GT42R with a 1.15AR hot side
and a 4" Exhaust that exits through
twin 3" oval pipes on either side in fron of the rear wheels. Fuel
injection is a Electromotive TEC3r, and I did all of the tuning myself.
There's a lot more, but that should give an idea as to what's in the car.
no water or meth injection
94 octane Sunoco pump gas
I've posted some additional details here:
1972 Datsun 240Z run. (One last good time before I sold it)
Right before I sold it...
Clicking noise is a leak in the balancing tube (welded day after this
video) Some sloppy shifts due to slack in the rear end and un-adjusted
clutch with cracked clutch arm bracket.
I loved/love this car! So much fun to drive...
1977 Datsun 280Z 5-Speed Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 1977 Datsun 280Z. I take
viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this car while
showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues
to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details of it, start
it up and see how it sounds under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of
this car designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the
