Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio. 

Alrightythen.  Things are getting back to normal and we should have a show you late model GM guys can get into.

Like it or not, change is coming.  Mike didn't like change when the LS popped on the scene or when the Corvette moved to square taillights.  Most of us hate change, but since we can't stop it, we have to live with it.

Howard Tanner joins us tonight to talk about exactly these changes.  The two big changes in the GM power plant area will be smaller displacement (maybe even V6) and no pushrods.  DOHC is the future and the control of the camshafts is valuable in both HP and economy perspectives.  Calibrators like Redline are ready to meet these new challenges head on.  Howard discusses where this is going from what he has seen from thus far from working with ATS Cadillacs and other GM DOHC engines.  Tech is changing and you have to move with it or get out of this game.     

Live again next week Monday night at 7:00 PM EST on Mixlr.com.  Call in number 908 751 0211.  Live callers welcome, and this will be the line for giveaways.

Mike, Tom, Tad, and Jeff in studio. 

Tom is back!

Thank god, it's not easy to do this without people you work with all the time.

Tom traveled to Japan and the Middle East for shows he had to attend.  This should be the last bit of travel for a while so we can get back to the guests and the tech.  Tom has some stories from the road, but he's pretty beat up.  All said and done it was like being on the road for a solid month.

Mike, Tom, and Fudd in studio. 

Tom is still away so good ole Fudd attempts to take his place.  

Fudd is still talking about his Dragweek car and is still stuck on a supercharger.  We know they can work, but Mike seems to think it's not the best idea for this particular type of event.

Tonight Glen Hunter calls in with some info Fudd might find useful.  Glen has a beautiful old school Chevy that used to have a supercharger.  After trying to get as much out of as he could he gave up and went over to turbos.  Glen has been going to Dragweek since 2010 and has managed to knock a second off his best after the switch.

Tom is still away so fireman Jeff came in to talk about his car for a little bit.

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio. 

There are a few companies that achieve a level of success that most of us can look up to.  We all had engine builders, car builders, and racing organizations over the years we followed.  There is no doubt that most categories of racing at the professional level get difficult to say the least.  That is gross understatement when you are speaking about 24 hour endurance races.  Katech met the challenge head on, and made their mark in racing history.  

Kevin Pranger of Katech Engines called in to give us some insight into his career at Katech and where they are today.  Anyone who has ever poked in at a endurance road race on TV has seen the GM Corvettes.  They have been front and center for years, and the Corvette Racing legacy really started with Katech and Kevin Pranger. In 1997 GM got together with Katech and the C5R program was born.  Though the program GM and Katech secured more than a couple of high profile wins.

BUT...

What can Katech do for you, the regular car guy?  How about CNC porting of your heads at an unbelievably low price?  Or a complete spin fixture tested valve train package?  Katech is the real deal, and you are not doing yourself any favors if you do not check out what they have to offer.  You cannot get the level of experience they posses from many other companies.

There is lots of history here and lots of information on LS3 engines that last in endurance racing.

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio. 

Well, it's official, Mike left his house and actually went to PRI 2017 in Indy.  

It was a very fast trip, with just a small amount of time spent at the show.  (and yes, he drove the Tahoe out there) Mike got to meet lots of the people that have been on the show, and did manage to mess with a few of them.  A bunch of listeners got together after the show day for dinner with Mike and Tom.  Lots of fun, all good people

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.

What is GM doing?  For that matter what are most of the manufactures doing?  The guys feel GM is messing things up at almost every turn.

The long standing battle between square ports and cathedral ports takes another turn.  Ben Strader of EFI University calls in to discuss the latest findings between these two head types on two test engines.  Both of these are very high horsepower normally aspirated engines that make serious power per cubic inch.  Check this one out for some more insight into this whole subject.

If you are really serious about learning how to calibrate or build racing engines check out what EFI U has to offer.  You won't be sorry.

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.

Well, Mike had a crappy week.  Mike was saddled with a plumbing disaster Friday night at his home this past week with a 4" cast iron septic pipe deciding it was time to check out.  We don't think we need to get into more detail than that.  Show prep has to take a back seat sometimes to real life, and this was one of them.  

With that lovely image in your head, enjoy your Thanksgiving!  Tune in next week for Ben Strader from EFI U.

Mike and Tom in studio.

Tad broke a ball joint and is sitting on the side of the road

(we had to tell you or you might not have noticed) 

We have to apologize ahead of time to Eric Brooks and our fans.  We were in a bad position after having missed two weeks.  We had a SEMA delay, an issue with the internet service being messed up, and now almost a third straight week of no show.  Mike got called in to a surprise budget meeting he could not miss.  That messed up our time, our prep, and the time we could devote to Eric.

Eric is a stand up guy and moved stuff around just to be on at our earlier time.  We will FOR SURE have Eric on to get more into HP Tuners and get much deeper into Ford programing in the very near future.
