Talking Mark Scott's Super Stalker

Here are some photos of our cool, newly finished Super Stalker. It was built by Mark and Ben Scott of Prototype Development. www.pdllc.net Prototype Development was the sight of the Thursday night cookout at LOG 28. We do custom fabrication and car builds. The car has a 3.8 litre supercharged V6 that puts out 260 hp at the rear wheels. The car weighs 1550 pounds. VERY FAST!!!

Looks like a seven



GM sourced v6?

Why only 260 blown?

1550lbs/260HP = 5.9lbs/HP... And he asks 'Why only 260?'

The engine is from a 2004 Impala SS. It is stock other than headers, cold air intake, and an different ECU chip. And RichS is right 260 is a lot in a car that weighs 1550lbs.

The stalker at the Putnam Park track day (CHILL event the Monday after LOG) was fast. Quite a different engine note than any of the other cars on track.

if it only has 260hp, then I'm guessing it's got to have much more than 260lb ft

why the SC? you could get 260 without an SC unless they plan to do upgrades, you should be able to get at least 380 out of it.

** save ~10 lbs gain 1 hp ** EQ: Y=(190*X) / (1984-X) where Y is (HP) and X is (lbs)

Fabulous Looking car. ... Love the colour and the shape!
Love the sound that the Brunton makes too! Blat Blat Blat! ... Sooooo Smooth!
and
1550lbs/260HP = 5.90lbs/HP ... that's right up there with my Hayabusa SR7
1012lbs/170HP = 5.95lbs/HP ... Yikes I better get a bigger Busa!

...i'll second tracktime's concern - that's an impressive power-to-weight ratio, but very low output for a 3.8 litre supercharged V6 nonetheless...

...unless it's a markedly low-revving motor generating torque in spades, i have to wonder why you chose the massive V6 in lieu of a much lighter four-cylinder engine offering the same output...any chance you could post a dynometer curve?..
