036 - Power and Speed - JRTuned and JJ from IAG

Mike, Tom, and Tad are in studio.  Crunch had a family gathering to attend to, and hey, family first right.  He will be in next week, and for sure they will be dragging him to Etown for the Subaru event.  No 196X Camaros buddy, lets get him a little more modern!

A surprise stop in guest, Jeff "Fireman", that Mike has known for many years takes crunches seat for the evening.  He just picked himself up a new ride a few weeks back.  A Chevy SS as he quickly pointed out.  Over time this car will be going through some nice mods.  Think LSA engine in a SS.  We will follow his progress.

A few episodes back JJ from IAG Performance called in to explain some of the ins and outs of the process of building some bad to the bone WRX platform cars and engines.  There was conversation about getting a particular configuration into the 8.XX second range in the 1/4 mile.  With no way for us to know, it turns out to be a car tuned by Tad's idol, JR Barrios of JRTuned.  JJ and JR give some details about the build, the pass, and honestly after everything was in place, how smoothly it all went.  

CJs STI along with efforts from PrimeMotoringIAG Performance, Manley, and JRTuned tuning all came together nicely in a off the trailer pass of 8.909 at 164 MPH!  This is absolutely staggering from a perspective that the basic platform is just like it would be if it were off the showroom floor.  

Some people seem to be under the assumption that a dyno number is the end all to be all of performance.  A dyno session can be bumped up, but the laws of physics are inflexible. One thing people should take away from this, including the caller, is that a dyno is a tool to help you achieve a result... the dyno is NOT the result.  After all, we ain't racing dynos... now are we.  

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.

034 - Power and Speed - Joe Krivickas from Precision Turbo

Mike, Tom, Crunch, and Tad all in studio tonight.

Tom is headed to Florida tomorrow AM, and it should lead to some cool stories.  2JZ piston testing for max boost stability.  How cool is that, trying to beat stuff up!  Manley is very serious about their piston business, and this proves it.  After the testing Tom is heading to the Florida 2K race.  Should be a nice week for Tom to gather some stories for the show.

Crunch is headed to Fayettville on the 16-17th of October for the 0Joe Grey and Larry T grudge final.  Big surprises, he is the judge for the rib contest.

Tad... well... has nothing.

Mike had a zero of a weekend.  His basement flooded, no car stuff over the weekend. He did get a kick out of Steve Jackson's video and Facebook page.  Funny stuff.

BUT, for sure some, if not all, of the guys will be at Englishtown this weekend for the Subaru event.  Look for Mike in a yellow 427, and be sure to ask whats up with yellow.

The people that have written in have requested more guests from the industry, and we working on lining them up.  The guys have some very good contacts in the industry.  So you asked, we have a great guy from a great manufacturer.  Joe Krivickas from Precision Turbo and Engine.  With trade shows on the way, we find out more about what Precision Turbo and Engine is up to for 2016.  Joe shares some insights on competition, rules, and a surprising area of new business.

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.
