Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio. 

 

First off, we suck.  We should be telling you this all the time.  Screw Facebook likes and iTunes reviews.  They really don't mean much of anything.  If you like the show and want to help us.  Share it Share It Share It.  That does in fact help.

Sometimes we forget how lucky we are to be able to speak to the guests we have on the show.  These guys are "THE guys" when it comes to what you really need to know.  

Tonights guest is Ben Strader, founder of EFI University. He has mentored and trained thousands of tuners from all over the world over the last decade and a half. He has spoken at ATEC several times, assisted NHRA Pro Stock and NASCAR teams on their transition to EFI, worked in nearly every venue of motorsports and even authored a book. Now Ben runs a racing engine development program through the school to help bridge the gap between builders and tuners.  Ben freely gave out some of the best information about the entire industry you could every possibly get.  There is so much in this one, we can't put it all in here.  Grab this one and save it.

We had a surprise caller at the very end of the show.  We almost left him hanging because we had no idea who it was.  Turns out it was Doc from Street Outlaws.  Ben has been instrumental in getting Doc going with his Haltech ECU.  We thank Doc for calling in and giving Ben a celeb endorsement.  Doc is welcome to come on at any time.

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio. 

There is nothing we enjoy more than giving our listeners the chance to learn from some of the very best in our industry.  Very rarely do we actually listen to the show over again, but this is one we all will.  

Shane Tecklenburg of Tuned By Shane T calls in for the longest show to do date.  Shane is an absolute wealth of information on the subject of tuning.  We could ramble on here for a page and a half, but honestly you just have to listen.  Shane will be back for round 2, and after this discussion, we are sure there is much much more to come.

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio. 

Serious moment from Power and Speed.  Listen guys, bad guys are bad guys.  Go easy on the terrorist stuff.  We all have strong feelings about these assclown, but don't let that cloud your judgement about people.  Maybe if we all focused on the car guy end things would be a little better.

Tonight we have two heavy hitters in this industry.  Paul Yaw and Tony Palo from Injector Dynamics call in to go over some products and discuss some tech.  The latest from Injector Dynamics is the ID F750 fuel filter.  The level of detail that goes into a product design from these guys is amazing.  There is lots of good info about filters and the principals behind them that you should listen to.  Going further with new products is the talk of the fuel pump they have displayed at the trade shows.  Paul and Tony have some really good tech on their future pumps.  Hint- in tank for big power.

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.

 

Sometimes you just have to clear the air.  Mike addressed an issue with a Facebook guy that has taken a turn into the personal.  Everyone knows Mike is a we bit hostile, but the whole Facebook thing he did not start.  He questioned data, and the other party got personal.  Most of it is still up there on the Power and Speed Fan page.  

Tonights guest is Dave Kogan of Kogan racing engines.  Dave is a super talented engine builder from the Northeast and located in Long Island NY.  Kogan racing engines is the ONLY Holley EFI certified installer in the area.  The Holley stamp of approval is a big deal and not just everyone is on that program.  Dave has a long history in the Mopar area from when he was a kid, and over the course of his career he landed at Ray Barton's.  That is one of those places that if you don't know who they are, look them up.  Listen in, and get some info about Dave.

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio along with two special guests from Dubai.  

Saeed Almarzouqi and Mohmed Ahmad came in with Tom.  We can't tell you how amazing it was to have guys from thousands of miles away that share our common interest in all things fast.  Saeed is the man behind the Custom Show in the UAE that Tom attends every year.  We really hope these guys make our studio a stop every time they are stateside.

The Team 260 guys checked in, the Neglection race has been postponed due to weather.  These guys, and others are welcome to come on the show and plug their events.  If you are close to the shows they put on, stop by and show your support.

Cobb Tuning is well known around the Subaru world and have expanded to bands including Porsche, Nissan, and Ford.  Mike McGinnis Senior R&D Calibrator of Cobb Tuning called the show to go over the process of development at Cobb.  Cobb offers complete packages that are proven to provide solid repeatable gains, but the offering does not stop there.  Cobb actually can repurpose sections of the ECU to provide features like trans brakes and bump in functionality.  Mike is one of the guys making it all happen, and the show can only scratch the surface. 

Mike Jovanis, NJ resident, NMCA racer, and DragWeeker calls in to share some knowledge of what it takes to compete in DragWeek.  Mike needs to come on again because the show ran so long.  We got into a few things we wanted to talk about, but we were up on a time constraint.  Mike is in the plans to come back in the next few shows.  These DragWeek guys have lots of valuable info to share.

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, and Tad in studio.

Someone help Chief from the 405.  The 80s called and they want their sox back.  Jeez dude.

A caller from really close by calls in to tell us he took none of our advice.  He wanted a blower and decided to go with a nitrous kit.  Clearly Mike wasn't paying attention at first, but I will side with Mike on this one.  150HP wet on a dry manifold should be ok, but man that is touchy when you get on them hard.  We know they can work but those manifolds were designed for air.  Always use a good tuner and talk to quality guys like NX Nitrous Express.  

Tonight Allison Black from Dynocom gave us some good info about Dynocom.  If you don't know about chassis dynos you can pick up some info here.  Allison was good enough to explain some of the products, and more importantly, the pros and cons of Pods. (also known as hub dynos)  Quite a few answered questions and reasons to use one VS the other.  They have lots of features in the programing and it sounds like they have lots of good software advances in their latest offering.  If you are looking for a Dyno, give them a look.

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.

Poor Tad, he's hurting.  We got older, and stuff goes wrong.  Kinda like an old car you keep fixing.  Tad has a case of the gout, and almost did not make the show.  Hope ya feel better buddy.

Here we go, the great head debate rages on.  It should first be noted Mike was actually respectful in his opinion and gave the guy credit for what he accomplished in this world of LS engines.  With that being said, the overwhelming opinion from very competent people is that the test is invalid.  Why, we don't know, but it is.  Mike did stand his ground and offered to pay for a test to prove a point.  Lets see what goes down.  Mike loves to gamble.

A listener or two requested we get Jason Hoots on.  Jason had probably the worst drag week experience we heard to date.  We all know it's not easy, and we all know stuff can go wrong.  Jason made one day of racing, and said that's it.  He fully admits he approached the whole thing wrong and he is ready to go back right.  Jason is a guy to watch, and if he survives our money is on him.

AMA  Ask Me Anything seems to be something the kids do today with the facebooks, the googler, and the tweeter. (SMH)  So we decided why not.  People asked us to do it, so send the questions or call in live.  We will answer anything... like seriously....anything.

Mike, Tom, Tad, and Headgames Dave in studio.

Dave from Headgames actually lives pretty close to the studio, so it's nice when he can drop by.  Dave and Mike go at it a little bit about heads, but don't let that fool you.  He was there to pick up Mikes heads, and trust us, Mike is very sure about everything he does when it comes to getting work done.

Drag Week guys continue, but this week it's something a little different.  Adam Hodson and Nick Taylor of Team 260 called in to give more than just Drag Week info.  These guys live racing, there is no other way to say it.  Not only are they Drag Weekers, they are now race promoters.  These guys got lots going on, and you should listen in and follow the Facebook page to get all the latest even details.  We might even head out to the Neglection race.  All of Team 260 (Two Six Oh) have been assume to talk to and we look forward to meeting all of them.

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.

Drag week continues to monopolize the podcast.  There are so many things to discuss, and Mike is researching everything 24/7.  When questions come up our goto guy is Jason Harding from Katech motorsports.  This time, it's an odd issue about what is going on the with the EPA and tuners?  Jason knows all about the ins and outs of EPA approval and practices.  We will have more about this in future shows, but it is scary stuff for the tuners and street guys.  Seriously, if we go to Jason for answers you should too.  Doesn't get better than Katech.

Continuing with out Drag Week participant schedule Alex Corella calls in to share his story.  His 93 Fox body actually uses a Ford engine.  With all of the LS swapping going on it's nice to hear some guys stay true to the brand.  Alex runs in the Super Street class and has some good stuff.  If you listen to guys like Alex and our other guests and don't want to do this, We don't even know what to say.

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.

It seems Tad is much more of a dork than previously expected.  Tad's car is delayed, in part because good ole Tad seems to be quietly trying to a "build thread" on some Subaru forums and won't proceed without... wait for it... pictures.  I can't even imagine why, but this whole thing is gonna haunt em for a while.

Tom was away last week at the UAE Custom show, and we don't think everyone realizes  this area of the world is going car crazy.  The Custom Show is getting bigger and bigger every year.  Tom is involved with an engine building and tuning challenge that is a big part of the show.  We realize not everyone can get there, but if you are planning a trip it would really be a cool place to go.

The DragWeeker theme continues this week with Matt Blasco.  Matt is old school Chrysler guy, but with some very interesting twists.  Matt is a IT guy by trade and he put his skills to good use.  His 1973 Dart actually runs "CAN bus" for the vehicle functions.  He runs a Mega Squirt system, and uses it functions to the fullest. (listen to the fuel pump system) Matt knows quite a few guys in this industry that took interest in his car, and he is going to put us in touch with some DragWeek loyal vendors.  Matt's a great guy, and we all look forward to meeting him in person.
