Banks Top Diesel Dragster: NHRDA Nationals
On March 6th, 2010 the Banks crew tested out the rail's new "Stroker" 427 cu. in., twin-turbo 7.0L Duramax engine at the NHRDA Nationals in Wittmann, Arizona. The numbers for this trip out were 7.670 @173.54. We were a little faster back in April 2009 when we ran 7.17 @ 181.08. We've also run a best trap speed of 190MPH with the car on a separate test session. All those runs were with our twin-turbo'd Duramax, and now we're getting set to hit the track with a supercharged configuration. Stay tuned for that! More info at www.bankspower.com/topdieseldragster

UPDATE: ALSO CHECK OUT MY SECOND VIDEO ON HOW TO turbo YOUR HONDA you can see it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLARm9Pk-7Y
this video shows the steps to turbo your honda in a couple days with upgraded internals and not removing the engine or doing any machine work.
also for those saying you need to do some sort of easy break in period i think you need to read this article , the old fashioned ways are long gone http://www.mototuneusa.com/break_in_secrets.htm
600WHP Subaru Impreza STi - Anti Lag and Cyclic Idle in Car Demo
Just put some finishing touches on tuning the anti lag to make it smoother. Flipping the switch opens throttle plate 20% and engine runs on cyclic idle @ 1,700rpm. When I step on the gas and engine rpm exceeds 3,000rpm and 30%+ throttle plate opening, anti lag is on. If engine rpm is under 3,000rpm for 5 seconds or more anti lag turns off and goes back to cyclic idle until I flip the switch off.
At idle with anti lag on it's about 1-2psi Boost at 2,700rpm. Free revving it up I can reach 5-10psi with no engine load.
BEFORE anyone asks how you get it and if you want it. Anti-lag is EXTREMELY hard on the engine. You would need forged pistons, and built heads at a minimum. The valvetrain takes a beating so inconel/super alloy Exhaust valves would be a must as long with aftermarket valve springs. Also you're going to need a STRONG header. Explosions are going on in there.
SLR McLaren Roadster modified by Platinum Motorsports

Here is a short clip showing the SLR McLaren Roadster owned by the owner of Platinum Motorsports in Hollywood, California. When Jack bought the car he wanted it to be unique so right away they developed a body kit for the car which includes all sorts of carbon fiber bits, They installed a new front lip, rear diffuser, a bigger lip for the wing and air brake, and carbon fiber vents. To give the car a better stance they put on a set of rims and lowered the car. It looks absolutely insane in person!

How to Seafoam your vehicle (Also called Top Engine Clean)
This is a carbon deposit cleaner that when used can help eliminate the carbon deposits that build up in the top end of your engine block. I perform this about every 15,000 miles on my own vehicle.
Steps to seafoaming:
1. Bring your vehicle up to normal operation temperature
2. Separate seafoam canister into 3 equal parts (one will be for sucking through a pvc line or brakeBooster line, one for gas tank, and one for putting in the oil filler cap)
3. Locate the PVC valve that runs through the intake manifold, for this is where you will initially suck 1/3 of the seafoam canister through.
(If PVC is non accessible then you can use your brake Booster line in the same manner.)
4. Once engine is at normal operational temperature, have another person sit in the drive seat and bring the engine RPM up to around 1500.
5. Pull your PVC off (or brake Booster line) and start slowly sucking 1/3 of the seafoam in through either of these locations. Be cautious & steady handed, you don't want to stall the engine out.
6. Once you've sucked all of the 1/3 portion up turn the engine off & replace pvc or brake Booster to its original housing.
7. Once engine is off, unscrew your Oil Filler cap & pour 1/3 of the seafoam in as if it were oil.
8. Unscrew gas cap and put the remaining 1/3 seafoam in.
9. Leave the car alone for 15 minutes.
10. Come back to the car and start it up, let it idle for about 10-15 seconds and then BRING ENGINE RPMS TO A STEADY 2000-3000RPM for no more than a couple minutes.
(major revving or fluctuation can knock carbon deposits loose so please keep a steady foot)
11. Once this is complete, take your car for a 10-15 mile drive, while doing so make sure to bring the engine through its total rev band spectrum to make sure all the carbon deposits have been cleaned out.
12. Once the drive is complete, bring the car back home.
13. CHANGE YOUR OIL & FILTER & SPARKPLUGS WITH KNOWN GOOD OEM SPEC PARTS.
(The reasoning behind this is that the seafoam lowers the viscosity of your oil, thus weakening its ability to control wear on your engines major mating surfaces and your plugs get buggered up with carbon after this tuneup due to the carbon coming loose during the tuneup.. So an Oil/Filter change & Spark Plugs are a must after seafoaming is complete
14. Tune Up is complete!
