Here is a quick upload of the Dyno session we did with the Platinum Bandit just after the TA Nats this year.
The Platinum Bandit, is an original 77 SE 4spd TA, that we converted over to a lot of modern technology to make it a fun road ready car with a lot of power. The 474 stroked engine we recently built for it with the help of Butler Performance, will be featured in the next issue of High Performance Pontiac Magazine. Pushing 585HP off of 89 Ethanol fuel, with plenty of vacuum and drive-ability, really makes this car come alive! I will be posting a video of all the updated components and their manufacturers soon. Enjoy.

Burt Reynolds Edition Trans Am BAN3 at the DYNO
We did a complete tune on (Signed by Burt - Car #9) this BRE Trans Am. The Dyno/Tune was performed by Chad & Pat @ THE SHOP, in Lincoln, NE on a MustangDyno). This car has an LS7 engine, with upgraded cam, lifters, springs and rods, to get it to 625hp at the crank, with similar torque. Unbelievable car to drive and feel the power that it has. If you ever get a chance to go for a ride in one of these cars or to purchase one, they are well worth the money and investment. Keep i mind this is a one of a kind signed car designed by Year One and Burt himself, and there will be only a limited production!
