Cummins Diesel Engine First Start
STARTS AT 3:10 ---
This engine and its twin were built by my father. He installed them in his
33' Bertram. Sorry about all the cranking. I meant to cut out a large
section of that, but somehow I forgot about it.
FAQ: Why is it white? It is common for boats to have white engines.
Why is water coming out of the Exhaust? The engine is cooled by a continuous
flow of seawater, or in this case water from a hose. It comes out of the
Why is it cranking for so long? Is the starter fried now? The starter is
fine. Everything was completely dry at the beginning of the video. It
just took some time for the fuel to be delivered.
Both engines are running (and starting) great over 5 years later. Thanks
FG F6 Typhoon into the wall at SuperNats 2012
This 10 second Quarter Mile,445rwkw (596rwhp) FPV FG F6 came off second
best with its run in with a wall at SuperNats 2012,Sydney International
Dragway.The plan was to film cars going past then speed the footage up so
thats why i missed the main part of the accident as my hands werent on the
The camera man standing on the side of the burnout pad is one lucky boy and
was very close to being hit as you can see in the Slo Mo replay.
Both Driver and Passanger walked away from this unharmed.
Just some of the action from Supernats 2012 at Sydney Dragway. this is the
18th year of the event and it was back to a one day format for a full
action packed day.
70 Double Blown GTO
My 1970 GTO with two blowers. It's 474ci Pontiac engine with a 8-71 blower
on top of a 6-71 blower. This is from the last day of being double blown.
I'm going to one single 8-71 blower and going racing. The front clip was
removed to make it easier to work on. The reason for the double blowers was
not as a power enhancement like many ASSume. I stacked the blowers to have
a car that stood out in the crowd. Most Pro Street cars were starting to
blend together. If you seen one, you had seen them all. That wasn't the
case with this GTO. Al someone had to say was "The double blower GTO" and
people knew which car. I was told it couldn't be done, so I attempted it
and it worked. It stayed that way for almost 2 years. I knew a twin turbo setup would make more HP. I knew I could
have run a 14-71 blower and made more power. That wasn't the point. I
wanted to be different than the other cars in the parking lot, I did that
now it's time to ove on. For all those people who don't understand why,
I'm not going to try and explain it to you anymore. Get over it. I didn't
expect EVERYONE to love it. But you won't forget it.
Twin Turbo VY SS Sleeper
Okay so a VY SS is a decent car from the factory but with a pair of turbos and built LS1 stroker they can certainly
scream along like this example here. Looks great under the bonnet and it's
a manual as well. It ran 137mph on pure street rubber
TOYRNR at Supernats 2012
TOYRNR - LS1 + T51R powered Torana showing flexing it's muscle on the
burnout pad at the Supernats. Unfortunately the officials didnt like his
circle work and kicked him off .... Too harsh in my opinion :)
