Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio. 

 

Oh boy, here we go again.  Fans will remember the show after Trump won the election Mike happened to play a Kid Rock song for the show open.  There is no way we could have known this guy is going to run for office in Michigan, and in some early polling he's actually up.  Well we know this guy certainly isn't gonna be able to say he's a nice wholesome gentleman...crazy times

The Team 260 guys (you have to say Two Six Oh or they get touchy) have been trying to put on a race called "Neglection" for some time now, and they keep getting screwed up by the weather.  It looks like it's finally going to happen!  Seriously, these are good guys, and they know how to treat people at an event.  The event occurs at Lyons Raceway park on the 29th of July.  If you are reasonably close, head there.  We are sure you won't be disappointed.

Tonights guest is Dave Vassar of Nitrous Outlet.  Dave shares his story of starting out in parts retail industry and ended up landing squarely in the nitrous kit and component manufacturing area.  Dave is responsible for some of the most well thought out nitrous kits on the market.  Puck systems, Stinger systems, and the new Interspooler system are all straight out of their in house R&D center.  Dave gets into some of the details of the various kits and there evolution through testing.  Lots of good stuff from Dave, and we would be happy to have him back anytime.

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. 

Well this is a first for us.

We have had guests from manufacturers, guests from EFI training, and guests that are racers.  We have never had a racer get to call in during a race week event.  To make this twice as nice, we have not one racer, but two!

Richard Guido and Billy Armstrong both call in while competing in Rocky Mountain Race Week.  

We had Richard on few shows back to get their Drag Week stories.  For those that don't remember his show, he is a crazy Canadian who runs an honest to god Pontiac 6 speed car.  Richard has made quite a few friends on his Drag Week endeavors and he is with one of them tonight.  Billy Armstrong is a fellow racer and it seems they are enjoying the high altitude air, along with a libation or two,  after a day of traveling.  Listen to these guys and you will get an idea what this whole Rocky Mountain Race Week can throw at you.  There are some very unique challenges here and be sure to pay attention to the altitude discussion.

Great guys and we can't wait to meet them.

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.

Tom takes an Uber, Mike has a plan, and together they failed. 

With that out of the way, the shows as of late are really full of good info from good people.  Shane T, Paul Yaw, Ben Strader and now...  

Greg Banish.

Greg has a very different perspective from most calibrators (tuners).  Greg has worked with GM, Ford, Saleen, Lotus, and Roush.  He has seen the inside of how the sausage is made for what we drive, or lust after, every day.  

Think about that.  

Guys like Greg are the reason what we drive does in fact have the mannerisms we expect a factory car.  Greg explained more than a few items from the OEM perspective and tied them in from a performance standpoint.  The direct injection side was particularly interesting to us.

Greg has also authored books relating to the performance calibration field as well as video productions on the same subjects.  Check for the books on Amazon, I know Mike bought some already.

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio. 

Most of the listeners know that the guys are really into DragWeek, and tonights two guests are the main reason they even started looking into it at all.

Clark Rosenstengel 2016 DragWeek Class Champion calls in.  Clark was not resting on his win over the winter at all.  Clark stepped up his program in a major way with a brand new engine built by Steve Morris.  When we say stepped up we me like billet water jacketed block stepped up.  The race is won in the garage, and Clark has been on it this winter.  He has the experience, the car, and certainly the engine to defend his win.  We think he has more than a good shot.  

In almost a redo of the first show these guys were on Jason Doisher called right after Clark.  Jason runs the same class as Chris Bishir, John Dodson, Alex Corella, and Adam Hodson.  Jason has a new engine and is working out the best converter he can find.  In the off season in preparation for DragWeek Jason has been running some special events and scored a very popular win at the National No Prep Redemption 7.0.  Jason has been all around the top of his class, and he is certainly one of the few guys who can win this whole thing.  

These guys are great guests, and we honestly can't wait to meet them, and all of the guys we have talked to, at DragWeek 2017.

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.

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.

May 15, 2017

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.
