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.

Mike, Tom, Tad, and SS Jeff in studio.

 

Well Mike has gone and done it.  He talked about it with Sloppy Matt, but he did it.  Mike is the proud owner of a 2011 Chevy Tahoe, and we have no doubt that HP tuners will put Mike in an an institution.  The oddest part of all of this Mike actually witnessed a crime!

We love repeat guests, and tonights guest could not come at a better time.  Greg Banish of Calibrated Success is one of the best resources for the process of calibration while taking into account the OEM perspective.  Greg has worked directly for quite a few top tier manufactures as a calibrater and has direct insights into why they do what they do.  Greg has produced quite a few educational books and DVDs and we highly suggest you check them out.

Mike, Tom, Tad, and SS Jeff in studio.

Our buddy Jeff stopped by tonight to fill us in on his SS that Mike has been helping him with.  The initial tunes are done and the car is solidly in the 10s.  There is more left in it, but it is a true street car.  It drives like a stock car, no meth injection, and still weighs in at 4400LBS.  It's really nice to see this working out so well, and we hope for more data soon.

Since Mike has been fumbling about with HP Tuners tonights guest is a good fit.  

Dave Steck of DSX Tuning calls in to give us some insights about stock GM PCMs.  There is no doubt some things with a stock PCM become problematic.  They pose a unique set of problems and DSX has some very nice items to help work though them.  More and more street guys are going to other than NA route to make big power and things like E85 really help.  The stock PCM has the ability to do this but you need a few things to get it going.  DSX has some great kits that are easy to install to do the hardware conversion.  After it is installed a few tweaks with HP Tuners and you are ready to go.  DSX has quite a few "make life easier things" so if you are a GM PCM guy check him out.

Mike, Tom, Tad, and Matt Happel in studio.

Tonights guest is actually in studio, and that is always the best way to do it.  

Matt Happel of Sloppy Mechanics took the trip to NJ from PA to explain the mindset of Sloppy Mechanics.  Loads of people get this wrong and think it is about just bad or sloppy work.  That is NOT it at all.  Sloppy Mechanics is all about accomplishing a goal with a low investment.  Think shade tree mechanics on every form of power adder available.  The performance potential of factory, and budget, equipment is incredible if done correctly.  Sloppy Mechanics guides will get you going in the right direction... and on a budget.

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.

We try really hard to make sure we get some of our racing royalty on, and tonight is no exception.  

Eric Dillard of Proline Racing calls in to tell us the story Proline and how they go to where they are today.  Anyone who follows the higher end drag cars of today knows that there are a handful of companies that would be considered the goto companies, and Proline is one of them.  Proline is not just a "pro" type engine builder.  They are also responsible for the fastest Lamborghinis on the planet running out of Underground Racing's shop.  

It is always nice to hear the story of how a company got "here" from where they started.
