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.

We all have our hostile friend. (Mike)  If you are not interested in the election or you are prone to being "Triggered" you might want to skip ahead to 7:15.  Mike is ranting... again.  (but he's kinda right... again)  Make sure you vote, that is the important thing.

Tonights guest is a departure from what we normally have for guests, but that does not mean there is no valid information.  We have had higher level people from higher level companies giving high level information in the past.  BUT, our guest tonight can make a lot out of nothing.  

Matt Happel of Sloppy Mechanics joins the show tonight.  Matt has a background in going VERY fast for less.  He maintains an entire web resource to give people the information required to make a very conventional set of part go into the 10s or better.  You really need to hear what can be done with conventional engines from a junk yard.  It's not always about high dollar engines and parts.  Matt will be back for more, and better yet, Matt lives close.  Some point in the near future he will be joining the show in person, and that should be a good time.

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.

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.

The guys all had a very uneventful week.  Mike abusing stalking Trump, Tom was un-friending everyone, and Tad well... who knows.  With a slow weekend comes a cool Monday.

Tonight we have Ben Strader of EFI University.  We really can't impress on people how much info this guy has.  People should also take note Ben spoke at the AETC conferences, and if you don't know what that is go check that out.  One thing we can say for sure is one show with him is not going to cut it.  Ben went over some of the base principals of fuel injection, and gave some really good hints at the foundation of good tuning.  ECU brands, VE math, and other aspects are discussed on this one.  EFI University has courses that range from very basic "this is an engine" to high level tuning skill sets.  One thing of interest should be the HP Tuners and EFI live training for people who work on stock ECU type vehicles.  This was a new deal, and sort of released on Power and Speed.  Give this one a listen, and Ben will have to be back on many many times.

Podcast cover

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio. 

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.

091 - Power and Speed - Scott Clark - Real Tuners

Podcast cover
Read more

Mike and Tad in studio, Tom is on a covert special OP dubbed "Operation NutBowl".  

With this New Year the guys are going to continue focusing on getting quality quests. It's always a blast to learn from some of the best in the business.  It's not always easy to schedule, but when we get them it's more than worthwhile.

There was not guest scheduled for tonight because Tom was away.  The show was going to be Mike, Tad, and good ole Fudd just shooting the breeze.  That all changed over the course of the day when we received a message from....

Scott Clark of Real Tuners.  Scott is going to be up in our area hosting an EFI school at Fonse Performance in South Jersey.  The dates as we have them are March 4th and 5th, and details can be found on the RealTuners Facebook page.  

Scott was on once before, and is a professional level tuner to say the least.  He has worked with many of the top names in our sport, and there is very little about fuel injection that he can't address.  Mike and Tad discussed quite a few topics, and some of it does get a little more technical on this episode.  

Scott will be in for a "live" show on what we believe will end up being March 6th.  Scott, and the guys, would like to have this particular show be a "Ask the FI Guy" call in show.  All the listeners have plenty of time to gather questions, and this should be a great tech/learning experience.

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.

Mike has all sorts of new blinking stuff here to send out a Facebook stream that meets his standards.  This week was a test, and any feedback will be welcome.  We are all pretty sure Mixlr is still the cool deal because of the live chat room, but if Facebook works better for some of you, great.

The guest tonight had been requested over and over again by lots of listeners, and we were all really looking forward to this show.  

Paul Yaw of Injector Dynamics!

The subject of injectors is often discussed, and aside from size, seldom discussed in detail.  If you think about all the different aspects of injectors for just a split second you can start to appreciate how complex they are.  What is the best placement?  How important is spray pattern and atomization?  What is the best fuel pressure for a given injector?  All great questions, and a chunk of them get explained on this one.  Paul is an extremely knowledgeable guy and full of great info.  We will be sure to have him back sooner rather than later.  if you are a fuel injection guy, you should listen to this one.

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.

It's going to be hard to follow up a show like last weeks.  Drag Week is a super cool concept, and the guy are truly interested.  Mike has said it before, "you can't have a game without rules"  Drag Week has rules and classes.  Check out the rules and classes on line, there is something for everyone.

The guys actually got a call during what we would loosely call "show prep" time.  They talked to the caller, Steve from NJ, and had him hold until after the show open.  Steve has a SRT Neon with a 2.4 and was curious about some specific engine questions. The guys did their best, but somewhat uncharted territory.  Any real time feed back from listeners on this subject is more than welcome.

Tonights guest is James Karger, Dallas freelance tuner and owner of LStune.com.  James is the real deal, and well versed in many disciplines of tuning.  He tunes everything from the restrictive Viper to the Holley EFI systems used by our guests last week.  James is even involved with a dealer optioned Fireball Camaro with 700HP and a warranty.  

James is responsible for the tuning of Jason Doisher's ride for Drag Week, as well as his own class winning LS powered Mustang.  James has loads of good info and insights into tuning and Drag Week.  Give this one a listen, and we can't wait to have him back again to get more into the technical details of tuning.

Mike gave us some insight into who listens and where.  Australia, Canada, and the UK make up the top 3 after the USA.  Nice.  Maine is slacking terribly, but the car people of Utah are listening!  Seriously, thank you guys.

We really can't say enough about this episode's guest.  Billy Godbold of Comp Cams calls in to give some very technical information about camshafts.  This show is not so much about camshaft recomendations, it's about the actual theory behind the camshaft and ways to apply these theories.  Some very interesting information about jerk, intensity, defection, springs, pushrods, rockers, and the valve train as an overall system.  If you follow our shows for technical details you will really like this one.

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio

We think once or twice we brought up the cathedral port vs square port head thing.  There has always been a "debate" about what heads are better for what and why.  Tonight we have an expert that tested exactly this.  Ben Strader of EFI University has built two engines with each of the head styles.  The first engine, the cathedral port, has been installed in Ben's car and has made passes at the track.  Listen in for the details and do a Google search of "Spinal Tap"

EFI University is the real deal for education in these areas.  We cannot stress enough the level of professionalism and detail that EFI U provides.  If you are serious, and have the time, call them.

058 - Power and Speed - Scott Clark Pro Tuner, DiyAutotune

Podcast cover
Read more

Mike, Tad, and some guy named Tom in studio.

Well everyone is finally back in studio after leaving Mike hanging last week.  He's not pleased.

Tom was away for like 27 days in Abu Dhabi at the Custom Show Emirates.  The engine build and dyno shootout sounds like it was a great show and a really good time.  The people of the Emirates have a very serious group of car guys, and some of the stuff they do sounds straight up crazy.  Tom fills us in on the dyno and build shootout as well as some two wheeled fun.  Not what you are thinking... you will have to listen. 

Tonight's guest Scott Clark and he is to say the least a very accomplished tuner.  Scott has worked on just about everything.  From Larry Larson's worlds fastest street car to NHRA Stock and Pro Stock.  Scott has even been involved in the Engine Masters Challenge.  That is a wide range to say the least, and there is lots of good information in this episode.  (Street Outlaws fans, something in there for you too.)

Sometimes you end up with some preconceived notions without knowing enough about it.  We are all guilty of it, and the best we can hope for is keep an open mind.  If anyone thought DIY Autotune was not something serious, you should listen to Scott Clark in this episode.  The guys learned that DIY Autotune has some things going for it that deserve a very serious look.  If you are looking for a platform, DO NOT skip over this one.  Give them a look, you will be quite surprised.

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.

131 - Power and Speed - Kevin Pranger of Katech

Podcast cover
Read more

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.

Alrightythen.  Things are getting back to normal and we should have a show you late model GM guys can get into.

Like it or not, change is coming.  Mike didn't like change when the LS popped on the scene or when the Corvette moved to square taillights.  Most of us hate change, but since we can't stop it, we have to live with it.

Howard Tanner joins us tonight to talk about exactly these changes.  The two big changes in the GM power plant area will be smaller displacement (maybe even V6) and no pushrods.  DOHC is the future and the control of the camshafts is valuable in both HP and economy perspectives.  Calibrators like Redline are ready to meet these new challenges head on.  Howard discusses where this is going from what he has seen from thus far from working with ATS Cadillacs and other GM DOHC engines.  Tech is changing and you have to move with it or get out of this game.

Mike gets pulled into a Mike story about a crazy girl and a Home Depot race car.  This is a 100% true story.  You can't make up the stuff that happens in life.

Internet info.  We have all looked for it, and we have all had to sift through BS to get a real answer for something.  The engine technical side is about as bad as it gets.  Anthony Berton will be on at some point in the future and he is the founder of The Engine Building 101 technical discussion group on Facebook.  We will let him explain how it started but it is a nice resource to find info, BUT being able to identify what is the right info in the problem.  Mike got into it with a guy who is a "record breaking Pro Five O builder" who ironically has nothing on his page about his accomplishments.  This is what you have to know how to bypass to get to the right stuff.  Anthony will for sure give you guidance on the group.

Matt Happel from Sloppy Mechanics checked in after being prodded by Mike.  He has been to the above mentioned resource.  Matt also has had quite a few experiences with this type of crowd, and that can all be seen in the forum archives.

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.

Unless you have not been paying attention all of the US factory hotrods are now supercharged.  Hellcat/Demon, Corvette, and Mustangs have superchargers and that opens up a lot of potential not only in factory upgrades but aftermarket additions.

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.

Well, that's it.  Now sports are a political mess too.  We are all going to try to stay more clear of these issues.  All these guys should try a sport that takes real balls...ya know what we are sayin.  A little acceleration therapy might do them some good.

First caller of the night is Jake Blain.  We hate to see people have their pride and joy get trashed, and this guy had a tough time.  He lost an injector o-ring and a massive fire ensued.  Jake actually bailed out of the car before it stopped it was so bad.  He's ok, but his car isn't.  Go check out 5252rpm.com and buy a hat to help em for christ sake.  Remember, a car is always replaceable, your health is not.

ProTorque.  We have all heard the name if we follow any drag racing at all.  ProTorque is a serious player in the converter industry and Joe Rivera calls in to give some insights into business, tech, and relationships??  Joe talks about different aspects on the converter and how changes affect it's operation.  There were some very key nuggets in here about the stator, fluid relationships, and construction.  A couple of ProTorue customers call in, and we would like to have them on individually as well.  

Joe is a NYer and we would love to have him in studio if he gets out this way.

Joe is a native NYer and we would actually like to have him in studio one night when he fells like taking a ride.

One of the best parts of doing this show is talking to people who have slid into this industry from less than obvious avenues.  Chris Delgado is one of those guys.

Chris is into a lot of interesting areas, and we talked about everything from "White Rice" to GM DI add port fuel injection systems.  Give this one a listen to find out more.
