WE MAKE SERIOUS PONTIAC HORSEPOWER
AND WE KNOW MORE ABOUT BUILDING STOCK PONTIAC ENGINES THAN ANYONE.
Popular Hot Rodding's latest review of their engine masters dyno results are great. (For us.)
You see, there's a pile of political bullshit that PHR is trying to lay on the world why we weren't allowed
to compete in their contest. If you ask any of them you won't get the truth.
Fact is I refuse to pay their unreal high prices to advertise. And seeing how we were first
on their Pontiac list to promote, (remember the succesful FreeBird project car?) because our shop is
an hour away from their offices, they figured we'd give in like everyone else they pimp
and pay their monthly "we're friends" money. When I refused they thought they'd "hurt" us by putting their promoting machine muscle behind Jim Butler and acting like we never existed. You may have noticed the latest proof of this as their
Feb. 2004 issue COVER car, Rex Gibsons beautiful '68 Firebird convertible featured on page 46 doesn't
mention that we built Rex's engine. You can see our name on the valve cover.
You can't make a silk's purse from a sow's ear, and no matter how much you try to promote
someone that hasn't and can't do what you're claiming, the world will eventually find out.
And with the release of this issue, Scott Parkhurst who came up with the Eng.Master idea
proves to the world who is really the "leading edge" in Pontiac engine developement. Us.
Top Pontiac finisher
These are the guys who kicked Butlers butt. But, because they didn't finish as high at the dyno facility
they competed at, they don't get to compete in the "Final Top Ten." (But the Butlers do) That's wrong.
PHR's rules leave a lot to be desired. As usual, it's another unthoughtful magazine "contest."
Notice that these guys used the Butler inspired Chinese 4.250 stroker crank, (stock is 4.210)
and the best they did was 634 hp at 6000 rpm and 604 lbs ft of torque.
NOTE: None of this is personal. I'm simply promoting our business with facts.
Here's the Butlers results. They made less peak power, less peak torque, thus less overall power, AND
they used that dumb-ass Chevy 4.250 stroke crank too. Well folks, here it is. The best that they can do.
Cutting edge? That's what Scott Parkhurst called this wheezer. Their BEST came in @ 616 hp and 609 lbs. ft.
Another problem with this contest? Only the top three finishers get tore down to make sure
they're built to PHR's rules. #4 thru #10 will not be inspected.
And what does, "It's a great example of a solid Pontiac engine legal for your competition" mean?
Bracket race engines have NO rules. And this engine will not fit into an NHRA or IHRA
Stock or Super Stock class rules. More hope-to-fool-you B.S.
DCI MotorSports were also allowed to compete this year.
Their engine failed on the dyno. No noteable results were recorded.
Don't forget to check out their new $5400 dollar heads with the six inch long valves.
Get 'em while they last. (?)
Here's what we do with a smaller engine.
669 hp and 631 + lbs. ft. of torque. Using a stock 455 stroke of 4.210 inches and a smaller bore!
Remember this IS an apples to apples comparison as we're running pump gas too. 91 Octane.
Below is the icing on the cake. Using a full .250 thou of less stroke, (4.00") a stock 428 crank, we
make a TON more power than any of the above contestants.
661 hp and 600 lbs. ft. with a little ol' 428.
All of our dyno tests were done at the same facility the "engine masters" finalists will be using.
Thank you Scott Parkhurst and Popular Hot Rodding.
You saved me a ton of money.
