Longtime friend and customer Mike Leech Dyno tested his Pontiac engine this month, and the results are impressive! Mike’s 554CID Monster ripped to 8400RPM to make 1137HP on BES’ engine dyno. Great Job Mike! The engine is topped by a set of Edelbrock Wide Port RPM heads massaged to the limit by John Marcella of Marcella Manifolds, as well as a cast intake prepped by John. Here is a rundown of the combo:
All Pontiac iron block
4.600 Stroke x 4.380 Bore
Custom MGP Aluminum Rods
Custom CP Pistons
Total Seal Rings
Cometic Head Gaskets
Custom 55MM Roller cam from Scott Brown @ Competition Components
Recently had the opportunity to test Lloyd’s Stroker HEMI at Steve Morris’ Engine Dyno. The engine was built specifically to run boost, so it was pleasing to see that this combo made 640HP naturally aspirated, and we didn’ t really chase the tuneup. Mainly we were just trying to get a couple things sorted out before we put on the blower. The torque curve stayed above 550ft/lbs from 4100-6000 RPM. A nice street motor by itself! Then we hooked up the Procharger F1A Kit. With the 4.6 diameter pulley that was supplied with the kit we ended up with a solid 10PSI of boost and 992HP. Unfortunately, the other pulleys we had were a big step, and we were running out of time. Stay tuned for more boost !
Customer Chris Lee got some really nice chassis dyno numbers from his 302 Mustang. The best pull was 329RWHP and 353 lb/ft which was 19HP and 21 lb/ft better than his old camshaft. So far, the car has run a best of 12.11 at 112mph. The engine is a stock shortblock 302 with untouched GT40P heads, and a custom camshaft from Scott Brown @ Competition Components. Definitely not trick. Chris works really hard to maximize the efficiency of his total combination and keeps meticulous records. That’s what it takes to build a strong runner. Hat’s off to ya Chris, great job. Looking forward to working together in the future.
