The only way to drive.

Some @the wheel dyno results:
With the 72mm TB is how I drive (blue lines). And the dyno guy didn't even get to the peak point of 4800. Use your favorite drivechain loss factor for an automatic and get some scary @ the crank #'s.

Hehe. Not to bad for a truck.

Hey rodney, what do you push?

Send it to Darryl or me to put on the website. I'll just host it there.

With Geocities, copy the url and paste it as the address and then add a space at the end and you can view it.

209 WHP 4.7 liters equals 44.5 HP per liter.




130 whp 2.0 liters equals 65 HP per liter stock and 28 MPG.

167 whp 2.3 liters equals 72.6 HP per liter stock... in 1988
167 whp for $30000 in 1988 equals $180 per whp

130 whp for $12000 in 1992 equals $92 per whp

Horsepower and Torque are shown as crossing at what? 4350???

That can't be. They have to cross at 5,252rpm.
They're on different scales. Scrool to the right to see the torque scale.

Yeam, nice peak. That's accountant math for ya.:D

Here's some more:
4000lbs/219hp = 18.26lb/hp
2500(?)/130 = 19.23

Now for real math take a look at average HP and TQ over the usable RPM range. My dyno graph is too short an RPM range, but an old one shows a symetrical HP trace on the other side of the peak up to 5800. Is that a 60 I see on Art's?:eek:

I can get 20mpg. Plus I can haul me, Art, 2 more people, two cars worth of race equipment and the sentra over the grape vine with the AC blasting.

Hmmm......

My buddy Kevin has a 1968 Barracuda with a 360 built similar to mine (only bigger cam). Once he upgrades to the same Heads I have, he is predicting 425rwhp.

425 rwhp 5.9L equals 72whp per liter.

425 rwhp for $3140 in 1968 plus $5000 in engine in 2002 equals $19 per whp

PROOF AMERICAN MADE MOPAR MUSCLE RULES!!!!! :D

We went to Irwindale last night and with his old iron heads and small cam, he was running 9.0's in the 1/8. Smoking the Drag radials through the entire length of the run. We couldn't get him hooked up and we couldn't get in not to hammer the throttle off the line...... But it was fun!!!! Car is perfectly restored and looks stock except for tires and exhaust.... And sound. Appraised at $20K last week (just a lowly 318 car like mine originally, so I thought the value is pretty healthy).

220 whp for $20000 in 2000 equals $91 per whp. Adjusted for 2% inflation per year (yeah, 2% that's all), =$77.60 in 1992 dollars. ;)

Good point Art, you get what you pay for :)

Of course, I only paid $11,000 for mine, and you can buy a SE-R for a fraction of the original price too. Though the old M3's seem to be rising in value now. Pretty common to see cars like mine going for $14-15k lately. One of the reasons I bought the M3 was because there were less than 5000 imported into the U.S. and God knows how many of those are now dedicated track cars or have been rolled into tight little balls...
