Before NASCAR announced that Sprint Cup cars would be using electronic fuel injection in 2012, some racing teams – Hendrick Motorsports and Penske Racing, for instance – had already turned to the world leader in electronic fuel injection technology, Bosch, to prepare fuel-injected V-8 engines as test beds. These engines, utilizing Bosch components, duplicated the pending NASCAR engine with electronic fuel injection.

The Pontiac bigblock build (starting with a 455 block and boring/stroking to 501 CID) is progressing. I apologize for the time delay, but this build has been taking place amidst a slew of other projects. At this point, everything has been clearanced and test fitted, and the crank was just recently balanced. Now it’s time to paint the block and assemble the long block, leaving only the task of measuring for custom pushrod length prior to completion.
The 2003-2009 Chrysler PT Cruiser and Dodge Neon turbochargers have an extremely high O.E. failure rate. This is due in-part to design flaws in the routing of the oil feed line. Due to extreme temperatures the oil feed line gets restricted with a build-up of coked (burnt) oil, effectively starving the turbo for oil.
