Shelby Conquers Dyno: 2010 Shelby GT500

ALL THE SHELBY STATS @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://blogs.edmunds.com/straightline/2009/06/defying-Dyno-expectations-in-the-2010-shelby-gt500.html?tid=edmunds.il.home.photopanel..1.* Do something enough times and patterns become apparent. Dyno testing is no exception. For example, supercharged cars usually produce their best Dyno result within the first few pulls. Heat soak tends to quickly get the best of the Intercooler circuit and erode the engine's output. Once this happens, we call it quits and review the data to select the run that represents the car's stabilized output. Not so with the 2010 Shelby GT500. With each pull on MD Automotive's Dynojet chassis Dyno in Westminster, CA, we witnessed the power from the supercharged 5.4-liter V8 creep up further and further. Five, six runs in and the power was still climbing. Finally, upon the seventh run, the output of our color-coordinating GT500 stabilized. And we saw that it was good. This new Shelby appears to have the thermal capacity of an industrial meat locker. That, and Gary and Jeff deserve a high-five for their efforts. Jump for the Dyno chart, video and the lowdown on Gary and Jeff.

Camaro Dyno-Mite: Hennessey HPE550 Camaro Dyno Smack Down
MORE HENNESSEY Camaro INFO @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://blogs.edmunds.com/straightline/2009/06/hennessey-hpe550-Camaro-smacks-down-the-Dyno.html?tid=edmunds.il.home.ph otopanel..1.* What's that? You're a power addict and the 426 horsepower with which Chevrolet endowed the 2010 Camaro SS is weaksauce? Here's your fix. The orange 2010 Camaro SS you see above has been given the full Texas-style treatment, and I'm not talking about barbeque. Hennessey Performance Engineering, headquartered in Sealy, Texas, coerces more power out of more than just Mopars and Mitsubishis these days, and he's turned his attention to Chevy's latest pony car. It's called the Hennessey HPE550. The centerpiece of the conversion is the breathing enhancement delivered by a Magnuson Roots-style blower and liquid-to-air Intercooler. Supplementing the 6 psi generated by the Supercharger is a cold-air intake and free-flow Exhaust. Owner John Hennessey tells us that the package swells peak power to 562 hp as measured at the flywheel. Aftermarket horsepower claims are notoriously optimistic, so we did the obvious thing and strapped it to MD Automotive's Dynojet in Westminster, California. The result was anything but weaksauce. Click the jump for the Dyno chart and video. First, a caveat. Before we did any Dyno runs, we noticed that the insides of our HPE550 test car's tailpipes were curiously free of the typical fine sooty layer that coats every car that runs on pump gas. Instead, they were fairly clean save for a light gray coating.





Fast Diesel? VW Touareg TDI @ the Track
MORE VOLKSWAGEN TOUAREG @ INSIDELINE.COM: http://blogs.edmunds.com/straightline/2009/06/il-track-tested-2009-volkswag en-touareg-v6-tdi.html?tid=edmunds.il.home.photopanel..2.* Diesels are finally here, sort of. Now that we have the low-sulfur fuel, manufacturers have responded with vehicles that even the great state of California will allow on its hallowed highways. Trouble is, these vehicles aren't exactly cheap. Case in point: the 2009 Volkswagen Touareg V6 TDI. It starts at nearly $43K, which is over $3,000 more than the base V6. And as the numbers below attest, it's not exactly the fastest SUV we've ever tested. That said, the diesel engine works well in the Touareg, doling out torque right when you need a stiff push in the back. It's quiet, too, and according to the EPA it will return 25 mpg on the highway. See what our road test editor thought about what it can do at the test track after the jump.

2010 Ford Shelby GT500 @ 2009 NAIAS
FOR MORE DETROIT AUTO SHOW COVERAGE: http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/autoshows/detroit/2009/2010fordMustangshelbygt500.html Like the new Ford Mustang GT and V6 models introduced at the 2008 Los Angeles Auto Show, the 2010 Shelby GT500 to be introduced at the Detroit auto show in January is far from an all-new car. Like its more pedestrian brethren, the GT500 gets a revised look, a vastly improved interior and a bump in horsepower for the 2010 model year. The car goes on sale in early spring 2009. Unlike the meager 15-hp injection given to the GT, the GT500 gets 40 horses more for a grand total of 540. And no, Ford will not change this car's name to GT540. The 2010 model uses the same, basic supercharged 5.4-liter V8, but it's tuned more like the limited-edition GT500 KR. A new cold-air intake draws air from the upper front grille through its own snorkel, and this piece helps generate the increased power. It's so important that the Cobra emblem on the grille has been moved to the passenger side so as not to block the intake. Along with the 540 hp at 6,200 rpm, the reworked motor now makes 510 pound-feet of torque at 4,500 rpm (a 30 lb-ft increase). The GT500's increased accelerative thrust will be aided by a new 3.55:1 rear end, in place of last year's 3.31. Even so, Ford says that the 2010 model will get a 10 percent improvement in highway fuel economy thanks to taller 5th and 6th gear ratios in its six-speed manual transmission. Figure it should return about 22 mpg highway. In truth, the last thing the GT500 really needs is more power; what it needs is a retuned suspension. The 2009 GT500 is just too soft and floppy for track duty, with a noted tendency toward understeer. Jamal Hameedi, SVT chief nameplate engineer, has been aware of this fact. So Hameedi says the 2010 GT500 incorporates lessons learned from the KR development for suspension tuning as well. For example, the 2010 GT500's front springs are 13 percent stiffer and the rears are 7 percent stiffer. The new model also carries the next generation of Goodyear's Eagle F1 Supercar tires, upsized to 19-inchers for the coupe. The convertible version (which arrives at the same time as the coupe and should account for about 30 percent of sales) sticks with 18-inch wheels and tires. Hameedi claims the GT500 should be significantly quicker through the slalom and less prone to understeer. The new car will also come standard with the three-mode traction and stability control system (on, off and sport), just like the new Mustang GT. Ford also tells us that the new GT500 will have better aerodynamic balance. A pan under the engine reduces front-end lift and a new rear spoiler reduces lift in the back. The GT500 won't be any lighter than the outgoing model due in part to the addition of more acoustic insulation. However, the 2010 GT500 will get a heavy dose of stripes. As Chief Designer Doug Gaffka says, "The car is all about performance, but a lot about design." In all, Ford will offer five different stripe packages, including striped leather seats and a striped cue-ball shift knob. And when we say cue ball we mean it — the shift knob is supplied by a maker of billiard balls.

Nissan GT-R Switzer P800 - Dyno run with backfire!
I've received the video from Totalcarconcept.com of the Dynorun! The Switzer P800 kit turns the GT-R in to a 800 HP monster. With a few PSi more Boost the 840 HP is no problem. They have 98 and 100 octaan fuels. The AMS sportcats are much bigger and give good power, also with sportcat! It's possible, they can do it! :) Video: 1014 HP Nissan GT-R Switzer R1K shooting flames on Dyno, wheelspin in 4th gear! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8kJe5rXMlCs&feature=c4-overview&list=UUX0Jgz K2nINOwDpZpXiGkqA "Like" me on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/Gnepiah Thanks to totalcarconcept.com (producor: Bas Boersma; Youtube.com/basboersma) Facebook page TCC: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Total-Car-Concept/278009428919743 Gnepiah - Supercar Channel "Every video is meaningful.
