Dodge Spirit, Holset He341 -The Tow Car- Great Depresion Racing
Holset He341 @ 10psi. Stock SOHC 6g72 with chrome rings gapped for Boost. 92 Octane. Stock N/A computer and Spark Advance. Rising Rate Regulator. Modified InTank Walbro. 4 puck on 200k+ mile pressure plate.
Kumho All Seasons @ 35psi, worthless but no broken parts :D
Expecting a little more but I had hoped the track would hook up decently. Probably run the same E.T. on half the Boost.
Holset powered 404whp f20c in a bmw 2002 turbo

Missle Test Road 1st-3rd Spinning Drag Radials (The Junkyard's beginning). Great Depression Racing
Testing out VHT (Trackbite brand) applied to a test road while using drag
radials. Failed to hook up in 3rd gear even though the car was on minimum
Boost (6psi). Probably better to
spray the VHT out ahead of the car because doing a burnout through the
puddle didnt seem to help the next time we went down the road (not in
video). Trackbite does work at the track on slicks. Just spray on the tires
are you are pushing the car through the staging lanes. Slipped 2 clutch
discs before upgrading to a dual diaphragm pressure plate.
500fwhp on slicks. Turbo Galant 6g72 vs Turbo Duster 6g72 (the Junkyard). Great Depression Racing.
After I got destroyed by TJ and his turbo Galant on a fun run (deal alky pump so I
couldn't run more then 6 pounds of Boost), we had a for fun rematch. Had been
tuning the car for a race that night and were forced to install slicks
because 4th gear was spinning drag radials badly and taking us off the
road. Original planned race car (E85 powered DSM) chickened out, then the
SRT-4 with 150 shot of Nitrous didnt
want to ROLL RACE after he saw the slicks at the meet point. Night ruined.
Called up TJ and he was over to the meeting spot in less then 10 minutes
ready to play around. His car weighs more so he knows he needs more power
to win. Duster Threw a spark plug wire so cylinder number 4 was misfiring
badly (reason why car sometimes pulls hard and sometimes seems to die off
at the top end). Nice to get a race after the DSM ditched and the Nitroused SRT-4 who likes to set up unfair street
races in his "stock" srt-4 (for money) got scared of the slicks.
Both cars are mitsubishi 6g72 powered. PT6765 12valve vs GT35R 24valve
426 Hemi in a '55 Chevy! Roadkill Episode 8
On this episode of Roadkill, HOT ROD's David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan
hit the road on a quest to build a car they've both dreamed of for years: a
'55 Chevy Bel Air sedan set up like a '60s Gasser and powered by a Mopar
426 Hemi. The guys drag out a '73 GMC Suburban that they'd never driven
more than around the block (did you expect anything else?), then use it to
pick up a bare '55 Chevy body in California before heading north for the
1,000-mile trip to Lincoln City, Oregon. That's the home of Jim Meyer
Racing, the chassis builder that helps the guys turn the '55 into a wicked
looking hot rod in a single day. There's no fail in this episode of
Roadkill! Well, at least nothing terminal.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel.

Turbo Duster gets crazy on the street, blows up on the dyno. Great Depression Racing
Blow out 2 cylinders (the Copper O rings on the Cometic headgasket) on the
Dyno. Also bend the
crankshaft. First Dyno
pass (600+) fails to record. Car does 446whp on 4 out of 6 cylinders on the
2nd pull. You can see the entire coolant system empty itself during the 2nd
Dyno pass, plus some
weird ground wire catching fire (stupid OEM wire that was 10 feet long when
it only needed to be 3 inches long, no wonder Dodge is having troubles the
last 20 years).
This was the 2009 Nissan Dyno day Event. Won for most HP
even though motor was blown but obviously the Junkyard is not a Nissan.
The street pulls the night before included hitting 24 pounds of Boost twice (accidentally) without adjusting
the air/fuel ratios which probably lead to the crankshaft starting to bend.
Fixed the Boost controller and
worked from 9 psi up to 19. 18psi on the Dyno. Chase car is a 50 trim turbocharged VW Jetta on 15 pounds of Boost nick named the "Stangbanger" for
keeping up with his friend's Twinscrew 331ci AFR heads stroker Mustang.
