(MIKE)>> WELCOME TO ENGINE POWER. WE ALL KNOW THE MUSCLE CAR WARS ARE BACK IN FULL SWING THANKS TO DODGE, CHEVY, AND FORD ROLLING SOME POWER PACKED VEHICLES OFF THE ASSEMBLY LINE.

NOW NO MATTER WHAT MAKE IS YOUR FAVORITE, SEEING WHAT THESE CARS ARE CAPABLE OF DEFINITELY PEAKS YOUR INTEREST, WHETHER IT'S A CHALLENGER, A CAMARO,

OR EVEN A MUSTANG. NOW SPEAKING OF MUSTANGS, THEY'RE EVERYWHERE YOU LOOK, AND THEY'RE A POPULAR PLATFORM FOR PERFORMANCE AND AFFORDABILITY.

(PAT)>> THIS 2016 MUSTANG GT ROLLS OUT OF THE FACTORY WITH 435 HORSEPOWER AND 400 POUND FEET OF TORQUE. IT TIPS THE SCALES AT JUST OVER 3,800 POUNDS AND COMES WITH BIG DISC BRAKES AND AN INDEPENDENT REAR SUSPENSION. NOW YOU CAN GET IT WITH EITHER A SIX SPEED MANUAL OR AN AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION, AND IT WILL RUN THE QUARTER MILE IN THE 12 SECOND ZONE, NOT BAD FOR A FIVE LITER. TODAY WE'RE DOING THE EXCLUSIVE INSTALL OF PRO CHARGER'S NEW PONEX HEAD UNIT, BUT FIRST WE NEED TO GET A BASELINE ON THIS COYOTE. WE'LL SPIN THE ROLLERS AND GET A LITTLE TEMPERATURE IN THE DRIVETRAIN. THE PULL IS DONE IN FIFTH GEAR, WHICH IS ONE TO ONE. THE RPM RANGE WILL BE FROM 1,800 TO 7,200 RPM. HEY THAT'S A GOOD START RIGHT THERE, 385 AND 351 POUND FEET OF TORQUE.

(MIKE)>> NOT A BAD BASELINE.

(PAT)>> THAT IS A GOOD BASELINE.

EVERYTHING LOOKS GOOD ON IT.

HOW'D IT FEEL?

(MIKE)>> GOOD!

(PAT)>> SOUNDED GOOD.

(MIKE)>> LIKE A NEW MUSTANG.

(PAT)>> THAT'S AWESOME! ALL RIGHT, 385 HORSEPOWER MAY BE FINE FOR SOME BUT WHEN IT COMES TO PERFORMANCE GURUS LIKE US, IT'S HARD TO SAY HOW MUCH IS ENOUGH. SO TODAY WE ARE GONNA CRUSH THOSE BASELINE NUMBERS WITH THIS ALL NEW SUPERCHARGER SYSTEM FROM PRO CHARGER. WITH US TODAY IS AN IMPORTANT PLAYER IN PRO CHARGER'S DAY TO DAY OPERATION, ERIC RADZINS. HE'S HERE TO GET EVERYONE UP TO SPEED ON PRO CHARGER AND WITH THIS KIT. ERIC, TELL US ABOUT PRO CHARGER.

(ERIC)>> WELL PRO CHARGER'S BEEN LOCATED IN LENEXA, KANSAS, FOR 20 PLUS YEARS, AND THAT'S WHERE WE IMAGINE, DESIGN, DEVELOP, MANUFACTURE CENTRIFUGAL SUPERCHARGER KITS FOR MODERN PERFORMANCE CARS LIKE THIS 2016 MUSTANG. AT PRO CHARGER WE HAVE A HUGE STAFF OF AUTOMOTIVE ENTHUSIASTS, AND THAT'S WHAT LEADS US TO HAVE 30 PLUS PATENTS ON DESIGNS SUCH AS THE SELF CONTAINED HEAD UNIT, THESE BILLET GEAR CASES, AND THESE ULTRA EFFICIENT IMPELLER AND VOLUTE DESIGNS THAT YOU SEE HERE TODAY. WHAT MAKES THIS AMAZING HEAD UNIT POSSIBLE IS SOME OF THE EQUIPMENT THAT WE HAVE IN HOUSE, SUCH AS A FIVE AXIS DMG. WE HAVE MULTIPLE OF THOSE, CNC LATHES, CMM'S TO CHECK THE MACHINE WORK AFTER IT'S BEEN DONE, AND ALL THAT'S DONE IN HOUSE, EVEN THE WELDING ON THE INTERCOOLERS, ALL THE INTERNAL GEARS, ALL TAKEN CARE OF RIGHT THERE.

(MIKE)>> WOW, EVERYTHING MADE HERE IN THE USA, THAT'S AWESOME!

NOW TELL ME ABOUT APPLICATIONS.

(ERIC)>> WELL THAT LIST WOULD BE SHORT IF WE TALKED ABOUT WHAT WE DIDN'T MAKE A SUPERCHARGER KIT FOR, BUT WE ACTUALLY HAVE A HUGE VARIETY, STARTING WITH SIDE BY SIDES

LIKE A RAZOR, HARLEY'S FOR MOTORCYCLES, CARS LIKE WE'RE DEALING WITH TODAY, TRUCK APPLICATIONS FOR TOWING OR RACING, AND ALL THE WAY UP TO OUR RACE SUPERCHARGERS, 3,500

HORSEPOWER IS POSSIBLE. LAST BUT NOT LEAST, WE EVEN HAVE MARINE SUPERCHARGERS.

(PAT)>> MAN THAT'S COOL. SO TELL ME ABOUT WHAT YOU BROUGHT US TODAY.

(ERIC)>> WELL TODAY FOR YOUR 2016 YOU'RE WORKING ON WE'VE

GOT A STAGE TWO KIT. THIS KIT'S GONNA MAKE ABOUT 10 POUNDS OF BOOST AND WE'RE GONNA BE, YOU KNOW, ON PUMP GAS, WELL OVER 700 CRANK HORSEPOWER.

(PAT)>> COOL, I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT AND THAT'S WHY YOU'RE HERE.

(ERIC)>> ALL RIGHT.

(MIKE)>> THE VERY FIRST STEP TO THIS INSTALL IS REMOVING

THE FACTORY TUNE OR CALIBRATION FROM THE CAR AND LOADING IT ONTO THE SUPPLIED DIABLO SPORT INTUNE THAT'S IN THE KIT. THEN YOU TAKE THIS, TRANSFER IT TO YOUR PC, AND EMAIL IT INTO PRO CHARGER. NOW THAT'S BECAUSE THERE'S SO MANY DIFFERENT CALIBRATIONS FOR THESE NEW MUSTANGS. THE GUYS AT PRO CHARGER WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU GET THE RIGHT TUNE FOR YOUR VEHICLE TO MAKE AWESOME POWER. IT'S NOT LIKE THE OLD DAYS WHEN ONE TUNE WORKED ON ALL VEHICLES. I'LL GET THIS HANDLED WHEN PAT STARTS THE TEAR DOWN UNDER THE HOOD.

(PAT)>> BY REMOVING THE FASTENERS, SECURING THE WIRING HARNESS TO THE STRUT TOWER AND STUD. NOW THE FOUR NUTS ARE LOOSENED AND THE STRUT TOWER IS PULLED OFF. THIS CAR IS SO NEW THAT IT EVEN HAS THE EMBLEM PROTECTORS ON STILL, BUT NOT NOW. BY PULLING STRAIGHT UP, THE ENGINE COVER CAN BE REMOVED. UNHOOKING THE MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR, DISCONNECTING SEVERAL HOSES, AND REMOVING A BOLT WILL ALLOW THE AIR BOX AND INLET TUBE ASSEMBLY TO COME OUT. NOW THE SOUND TUBE IS REMOVED. FOR DID THIS TO GIVE YOU MORE OF THE VEIGHT SOUND INSIDE THE CABIN. A SUPPLIED GROMMET FROM PRO CHARGER IS INSTALLED TO BLOCK THE HOLE. THE FRONT OF THE CAR CAN BE RAISED AND PLACED ON JACK STANDS AT THIS POINT. THIS ALLOWS US TO REMOVE ALL OF THE HARDWARE SO THE FRONT FASCIA CAN BE REMOVED. NOW THE BUMPER BRACES COME OFF ALONG WITH THE DRIVER AND PASSENGER SIDE RADIATOR SHROUDS. WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

(MIKE)>> WELCOME BACK.

THIS STAGE TWO PRO CHARGER SYSTEM IS GOING TO INCREASE THE POWER IN OUR MUSTANG GT BY 250 TO 300 HORSEPOWER. NOW THAT REQUIRES MORE FUEL DELIVERY TO THE ENGINE. SO THEY SUPPLY THESE 1,000cc OR 95 POUND AN HOUR INJECTORS TO GET THE JOB DONE. NOW IN ORDER TO SWAP THEM OUT THE FUEL RAIL HAS TO BE REMOVED. THE BRACKETS AND FOAM INSULATORS OVER THE FUEL RAILS ARE PULLED OUT THE WAY. SO ARE THE COOLANT LINES THAT RUN OVER THE TOP OF THE RAILS. WITH A SCOTT SHOP TOWEL UNDER THE SUPPLY LINE,

WE CAN DISCONNECT IT AND LET THE TOWEL SOAK UP ANY

FUEL THAT COMES OUT. NOW DISCONNECT THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTORS FROM THE INJECTORS AND REMOVED THE FOUR BOLTS SECURING THE RAIL. NOW LIFT THE RAIL WITH THE INJECTORS OFF THE ENGINE. SWAPPING THE INJECTORS IS EASY. JUST MAKE SURE THE ORINGS ARE LUBED AND THEY WILL GO RIGHT IN. WITH THE SUPPLIED FUEL RAIL SPACERS IN PLACE, THE RAIL GOES BACK IN WITH NEW HARDWARE, AND ALL THE FACTORY PIECES ARE REATTACHED. WITH THE COOLANT DRAINED WE CAN REMOVE THE HOSE TO THE FACTORY THERMOSTAT HOUSING AND THE ACTUAL HOUSING. THIS NEW PRO CHARGER PIECE GOES ON USING THE FACTORY HARDWARE, AND THE ORIGINAL HOSE REATTACHES. THIS MOVES THE HOSE AWAY FROM THE ENGINE FOR SUPERCHARGER BELT CLEARANCE.

THE COOLANT RESERVOIR CAN BE REMOVED. IT IS NOT REUSED. NOW WE CAN REMOVE THE BALANCER BOLT.

(PAT)>> PRO CHARGER USES A UNIQUE CRANK

SHAFT PULLEY SETUP.

IT HAS CAM LOCKS ON THE BACK THAT ARE A PATENTED DESIGN THAT STRADDLE THE STOCK BALANCER STRUTS. THEY ROTATE TO LOCK THEMSELVES INTO POSITION TO AVOID ANY ROTATION BETWEEN THE CRANK SHAFT AND THE PULLEY ITSELF ONCE IT'S INSTALLED. THE PULLEY GOES INTO PLACE AND THE SUPPLIED BALANCER BOLT IS FINGER TIGHTENED. NOW ROTATE THE PULLEY COUNTER CLOCKWISE UNTIL THE CAM LOCKS STOP IT FROM ROTATING. WITH THE BALANCER BOLT LIGHTLY SNUG, TIGHTEN THE SIX CAM LOCK BOLTS. FINALLY THE BALANCER BOLT IS TORQUED TO 75 POUND FEET.

(MIKE)>> NOW THE BRACKET AND HEAD UNIT PORTION OF THE ASSEMBLY HAPPENS. ONE THING TO POINT OUT IS PRO CHARGER'S DETAILED

INSTRUCTION MANUAL. THE PHOTOS ARE IN COLOR AND THE STEPS ARE DETAILED, EVEN DOWN TO WHAT TOOL IS REQUIRE FOR EACH STEP. THE FIRST ONE FOR THIS SECTION IS TO REMOVE TWO TIMING COVER BOLTS AND THE UPPER ALTERNATOR NUT. THE SUPPLIED SUBBRACKET IS BOLTED TO THE TIMING COVER USING NEW HARDWARE. NOW REMOVE THE UPPER MOST TIMING COVER BOLT ON THE DRIVER'S SIDE, ALONG WITH THE UPPER MOST THERMOSTAT HOUSING BOLT. UNPLUG THE DRIVER'S SIDE INTAKE CAM SENSOR AND REROUTE THE HARNESS AWAY FROM THE FRONT OF THE ENGINE. NOW REMOVE THE RADIATOR BRACKETS, INSTALL THE SUPPLIED ISOLATORS, AND INSTALL THE NEW SUPPLIED RADIATOR BRACKETS FROM THE KIT. THEY MOVE THE RADIATOR FORWARD FOR SUPERCHARGER CLEARANCE. A HEX STAND OFF IS PLACED ON THE ALTERNATOR STUD, AND THE SUPERCHARGER BRACKET ASSEMBLY IS PUT IN PLACE. IT IS POSITIONED IN FRONT OF THE DRIVER'S SIDE CYLINDER HEAD AND ATTACHES WITH FOUR FASTENERS FOR A RIGID, ROCK SOLID MOUNT. THAT'S A SIGN WE'RE CLOSE TO MOUNTING THIS BRAND NEW PONEX HEAD UNIT, BUT FIRST WE'VE GOT TO TAKE A BREAK.

(MIKE)>> WE'RE BACK AND SO FAR WE'VE REMOVED SEVERAL COMPONENTS FROM A 2016 MUSTANG GT TO MAKE WAY FOR A PRO CHARGER SUPERCHARGER SYSTEM. NOW THE MAIN BRACKET JUST WENT ON. NOW WE'RE READY TO TALK ABOUT PRO CHARGER'S NEWLY RELEASED PONEX HEAD UNIT. NOW THIS IS A NEWLY DESIGNED SUPERCHARGER THAT IS MORE EFFICIENT AND MAKES MORE POWER THAT IT'S PREDECESSOR, THE PONESC DASH ONE.

WALT SIPP IS PART OF THE DEVELOPMENT AND TESTING TEAM, AND WILL FILL US IN ON WHAT MAKES THIS SUPERCHARGER SO GOOD.

(WALT)>> THANKS MIKE, WELL FIRST OF ALL THE PONESC DASH ONE HAS BEEN AROUND A LONG TIME. IT'S A GOOD SUPERCHARGER. ON THIS PARTICULAR MUSTANG THIS IS A STANDARD SUPERCHARGER THAT WE WOULD NORMALLY SELL WITH IT. YOU'RE GONNA SEE ABOUT A 65 TO 70 PERCENT HORSEPOWER GAIN. HOWEVER, THE PONEX, THE NEW SUPERCHARGER, HAS ITS LINEAGE DATED TO OUR HIGH EFFICIENCY WHEELS, THE FONEX AND THE FTHREEX. THIS SUPERCHARGER IS CAPABLE OF ANYWHERE FROM EIGHT TO 15 REAR WHEEL HORSEPOWER MORE THAN OUR PONESC DASH ONE AT THE SAME BOOST LEVEL.

(MIKE)>> WHAT ARE SOME OF THE PHYSICAL DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE TWO BLOWERS?

(WALT)>> WELL THE BIGGEST THINGS YOU'LL NOTICE IS THAT THE PONESC DASH ONE HAS A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT SHAPE OF IMPELLER WHEEL AND HAS A MORE ROUNDED STYLE VOLUTE. WHERE THE PONEX HAS A MORE FLAT, THICKER VOLUTE WITH A DIFFERENT SHAPED, HIGHER EFFICIENCY IMPELLER WHEEL.

(MIKE)>> NOW ON THE STAGE TWO KIT THIS BLOWER MAKES 10 POUNDS. IF THE GUY WAS WANTING TO UPGRADE AFTER HE MADE SOME CHANGES TO THE CAR WHAT'S THIS BLOWER CAPABLE OF?

(WALT)>> WELL THIS SUPERCHARGER IS CAPABLE OF ABOUT 850 HORSEPOWER. SO THE GUY'S GOT QUITE A BIT OF OPTIONS AS FAR AS PULLEYS GO, BOOST OPTIONS, AND THAT SORT OF THING. THAT'S THE BEAUTY OF THE PRO CHARGER KIT THOUGH. THE GUY CAN START WITH A PONESC DASH ONE OPTIONED FOR THIS SUPERCHARGER BUT ACTUALLY GO ALL THE WAY UP TO AN FONER SUPERCHARGER ON THE SAME BRACKET SYSTEM AND CAPABLE OF 1,200 HORSEPOWER.

(MIKE)>> THAT'S PRETTY IMPRESSIVE. THE PONEX IS A SELF CONTAINED OIL UNIT, MEANING IT DOES NOT RELY ON ANY ENGINE OIL LUBRICATION. THAT MEANS NO TAPPING INTO THE OIL PAN. IT DOES USE A DRAIN LINE TO MAKE OIL CHANGES TO THE BLOWER EASIER WHEN THE TIME COMES, WHICH IS AROUND 5,000 TO 6,000 MILES. THIS UNIT REQUIRES ONE BOTTLE OF PRO CHARGER'S

LUBE FOR A FILL. THEY SEND YOU ENOUGH FOR ABOUT 20,000 MILES WORTH OF

SERVICE WITH EACH KIT.

(PAT)>> THIS MAKES IT SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO JAM A BIG HOLE IN THE OIL PAN.

(MIKE)>> NOW THE HEAD UNIT DROPS IN AND MOUNTS TO THE

SUPER STRONG BRACKET WITH SOCKET HEAD CAP SCREWS. NOW ROUTE THE BELT FROM THE CRANK PULLEY TO THE

SUPERCHARGER PULLEY.

WITH THE FACTORY IDLER PULLEY BOLT REMOVED, PLACE THE SUPPLIED IDLER SHAFT INTO THE FACTORY IDLER PULLEY. NOW PLACE THE SUPPLIED PRO CHARGER IDLER PULLEY ON THE

SHAFT AND TIGHTEN IT DOWN WITH THEIR FASTENER.

(PAT)>> PRO CHARGER MAKES ALL OF THEIR INTERCOOLERS IN HOUSE, AND THIS PARTICULAR ONE IS SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR 2015 LATER MUSTANGS, INCLUDING THE GT 350. IT FEATURES A FOUR INCH CORE AND EXTRA LARGER TANKS, AND

INCORPORATES THE MASS AIR FLOW MOUNT RIGHT IN THE TANK ITSELF, AND THE REASON THAT IT'S HERE IS BECAUSE IT WILL

RECEIVE A SMOOTHER AIR FLOW SIGNAL THAN IF IT WAS MOUNTED IN THE AIR INTAKE TUBE. WITH THE MOUNTING BRACKETS ATTACHED, WE CAN POSITION THE INTERCOOLER BETWEEN THE BUMPER AND THE CONDENSER. THE BRACKETS SLIDE OVER THE BUMPER BOLTS, AND ARE SECURED WITH SUPPLIED HARDWARE. WITH THE INTERCOOLER ADJUSTED AS HIGH AND AS FAR FORWARD AS POSSIBLE, TIGHTEN THEM DOWN. NOW INSTALL THE FACTORY MASS AIR FLOW SENSOR. IT ONLY GOES IN ONE WAY DUE TO ITS OFFSET HOLES. AN INCLUDED EXTENSION HARNESS MAKES THE CONNECTION BACK TO THE MAIN HARNESS.

(MIKE)>> THIS INTERCOOLER IS SUPER EFFICIENT, AND THE REASON INLET AIR TEMPS ONLY SEE ABOUT AN EIGHT TO 10 DEGREE RISE OVER AMBIENT, AND THAT'S WITH

10 POUNDS OF BOOST. ALL THE PIPING IS NEXT, AND THEY EVEN HAVE A SCHEMATIC FOR THAT IN THE INSTRUCTION BOOK. IT WAS SPOT ON JUST LIKE EVERYTHING ELSE. WITH THE COOLANT BACK IN AND THE TUNE LOADED, LET'S HEAR IT. [ engine fires up ]

(MIKE)>> NOW THAT'S AN AWESOME FIRE UP. WHEN WE COME BACK IT'LL BE ON THE DYNO.

(MIKE)>> WE'RE BACK AND THE 2016 PRO CHARGED MUSTANG IS READY TO SHOW YOU HOW EASY IT IS TO MAKE BIG POWER WITH THEIR STAGE TWO SYSTEM. THE PULLS ARE JUST LIKE THE BASELINE ONES TO SEE WHAT THE TRUE GAINS ARE WITH BOOST FROM THE PONEX HEAD UNIT. [ engine revving ]

(PAT)>> HEY THAT'S AN IMPROVEMENT. TAKING IT UP STAIRS, 630.

(MIKE)>> ALL RIGHT!

(PAT)>> THAT IS AWESOME. TORQUED PICKED UP TO 488 POUND FEET.

(MIKE)>> MAN THAT GRAPH IS SUPER SMOOTH TOO.

GREAT MID RANGE POWER ALL THE WAY UPSTAIRS. [ engine revving ]

(MIKE)>> WE'RE DOING ANOTHER RUN AND THE ONLY CHANGE, WE'LL BE PULLING IT TO THE REV LIMITER.

(PAT)>> OH, ARE YOU READY FOR THIS? 656 HORSEPOWER, 491 POUND FEET, SO THAT'S 271 HORSE ON THE GAIN, WHICH IS AROUND A 70 PERCENT GAIN.

(MIKE)>> THAT'S INCREDIBLE!

(PAT)>> LOOK AT HOW FLAT THE TORQUE IS. THE TORQUE IS FLAT FROM ROUGHLY 4,500 ALL THE WAY UP TO 6,500, 7,000, AND THE GRAPH IS JUST LINEAR UP, IT'S AWESOME!

(MIKE)>> WHAT A KIT.

(PAT)>> THAT IS AWESOME FOR A BOLT ON TO GAIN

THAT KIND OF POWER.

(MIKE)>> VERY COOL. FROM CORVETTES TO MUSTANGS AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN, PRO CHARGER IS DEDICATED TO EXCEPTIONAL R&D TESTING. TRACK DAYS LIKE THIS ARE SETUP TO TEST AND EVALUATE THEIR SYSTEMS. NOW WALT IS A PROFESSIONAL DRIVER AND RACER WHO PUTS THE VEHICLES THROUGH THE PACES. THIS IS ANOTHER STEP TO PROVIDING THE BEST END PRODUCT TO THE CONSUMER.

THE PRO CHARGER SYSTEM IS A TRUE TURN KEY BOLT ON SYSTEM, AND YOU CAN INSTALL IT IN YOUR GARAGE AT HOME WITHOUT A LIFT IN ABOUT SIX HOURS. NOW THE ONLY TOOLS WE USED FOR THE WHOLE INSTALL ARE WHAT YOU SEE ON THIS TOOL CART. NOW THIS PRO CHARGER KIT FOR THE NEW MUSTANG COMES IN A FEW DIFFERENT WAYS. FIRST IS THE HO KIT, WHICH USES A SMALLER INTERCOOLER THAN THE ONE IN THE STAGE TWO LIKE WE INSTALLED, AND IT RUNS ON EIGHT POUNDS OF BOOST.

THEN COMES THE STAGE TWO KIT THAT HAS THAT AWESOME BIG INTERCOOLER AND RUNS ON 10 POUNDS OF BOOST. FINALLY THERE'S A TUNER KIT THAT DOESN'T COME WITH INJECTORS OR AN ACTUAL TUNE, AND THAT KIT IS FOR VEHICLES THAT ARE ALREADY MODIFIED. SO FROM HERE ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS CONTACT A PRO CHARGER DEALER AND FIND OUT WHAT SYSTEM SUITS YOUR POWER NEEDS.

(PAT)>> IF YOU'RE IN THE MARKET FOR A MUSTANG THAT MAKES BIG POWER LIKE THIS ONE BEHIND ME CHECK THIS OUT. PRO CHARGER WORKS WITH A HAND FULL OF DEALERSHIPS, LIKE SARASOTA FORD'S 707 PERFORMANCE, THAT OFFER THESE CARS ON THE SHOWROOM FLOOR THAT ARE SUPERCHARGED AND STILL HAVE FULL FACTORY WARRANTY. THAT JUST GOES TO SHOW THE QUALITY OF PRO CHARGER'S PRODUCTS.

(MIKE)>> NOT TOO LONG AGO WE ENLIGHTENED YOU ON THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF BEARINGS TO USE IN YOUR ENGINE BUILDING

PROJECTS, WHETHER IT'S A STOCK REBUILD OR A FULL BLOWN RACE BULLET. NOW WE ALSO MENTIONED WE WERE GOING TO EXPAND ON THAT TOPIC, SO HERE WE GO.

(PAT)>> YOU'VE SEE US CHECK BEARING CLEARANCES ON THE ENGINES WE BUILT, BUT WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THOSE CLEARANCES AREN'T WHAT WE WANT. AS ENGINE BUILDERS WE HAVE VERY SPECIFIC TOLERANCES DEPENDING ON THE APPLICATION. SO THIS TECH TIP IS GONNA SHOW YOU THE PROCESS OF WHAT WE DO IF THE CLEARANCE IS TOO BIG OR TOO SMALL.

(MIKE)>> THIS BIG BLOCK CHEVY IS AN UPCOMING BUILD WE HAVE PLANNED. NOW IT'S GOING TO BE A BIG POWER PRODUCER. SO BEARING CLEARANCES ARE VERY CRITICAL. LIKE EVERY BUILD, WE'LL START BY MEASURING THE MAIN JOURNALS ON THE CRANK TO GET A STARTING POINT. RECORDING THE INFORMATION IS JUST AS CRITICAL, AND WE'LL BE USING OUR ENGINE POWER BUILD SHEET THAT YOU CAN

DOWNLOAD FROM OUR WEBSITE.

(PAT)>> USING A TWO TO THREE MIC, WE'LL MEASURE THE NUMBER ONE MAIN JOURNAL. WE'LL GET TWO READINGS. THE FIRST ONE, AT ANY POSITION YOU WANT, WHICH IS TWO POINT SEVENFOURNINEZERO. THE SECOND NEEDS TO BE AT 90 DEGREES FROM THE FIRST ONE. THIS WILL LET'S YOU KNOW HOW ROUND THE JOURNAL IS. IT IS TWO POINT SEVENFOURNINEONE. NOW SET THE DIAL BORE GAUGE TO THE JOURNAL'S OD USING THE MIC. NOW A STANDARD SIZE BEARING WILL BE INSTALLED IN THE NUMBER ONE MAIN JOURNAL IN THE BLOCK, AND THE MAIN TORQUE TO 95 POUND FEET TO ACHIEVE PROPER BEARING CRUSH.

THE GAUGE READING IS THE CLEARANCE BETWEEN THE JOURNAL AND THE BEARING ID, WHICH IS ALSO CALLED VERTICAL OIL CLEARANCE. IT SHOWS 21 TEN THOUSANDTHS, WHICH IS A BIT TOO TIGHT FOR OUR POWER LEVEL.

WE'RE LOOKING FOR A MINIMUM OF ONE THOUSANDTHS PER INCH OF SHAFT DIAMETER PLUS A HALF THOUSANDTHS FOR A MINIMUM CLEARANCE. SO THAT PUTS US AT AT LEAST 31 TEN THOUSANDTHS.

(MIKE)>> THIS IS WHERE IT GETS COOL.

THERE'S ABSOLUTELY NO MACHINING NEEDED TO GET THE EXTRA CLEARANCE WE NEED. NOW BEARINGS ARE AVAILABLE ONE THOUSANDTHS UNDERSIZED AND ONE THOUSANDTHS OVERSIZED FOR THAT PARTICULAR REASON.

NOW JUST AN FYI, THEY'RE MARKED ONE FOR UNDERSIZED AND "X" FOR OVERSIZED, WHICH BASICALLY STANDS FOR EXTRA CLEARANCE.

NOW WE NEED A THOUSANDTHS MORE TO BE IN THE RANGE WE WANT TO BE IN. SO THE "X'S" ARE GOING IN, AND THEY ARE MARKED. ONCE IN PLACE, THE CAP IS TORQUED, AND THE DIAL BORE GAUGE SHOWS WE ARE AT 31 TEN THOUSANDTHS, WHICH IS SPOT ON.

(PAT)>> IF YOU ONLY NEED A HALF THOUSANDTHS CLEARANCE EITHER WAY, YOU CAN MIX AND MATCH THE STANDARD BEARING WITH AN "X" OR A ONE UNDER TO GET THE BEARING CLEARANCE THAT YOU NEED FOR YOUR ENGINE BUILD. WELL THERE YOU HAVE IT, ANOTHER PROFESSIONAL ENGINE BUILDING TIP YOU CAN PUT TO GOOD USE.

(MIKE)>> IF YOU'VE GOT AN '86 OR EARLIER SMALL BLOCK CHEVY WITH CONVENTIONAL 23 DEGREE CYLINDER HEADS, EDELBROCK HAS A NEW ADDITION TO THEIR HUGE LINE UP OF EFI SYSTEMS JUST FOR YOU. THIS IS THEIR PRO FLOW THREE SEQUENTIAL PORT SETUP. NOW IT COMES WITH A VICTORE INTAKE MANIFOLD AND INJECTOR OPTIONS THAT WILL SUPPORT UP TO 625 HORSEPOWER. NOW IT COMES WITH A DISTRIBUTOR, HARNESS, AND ALL THE NECESSARY HARDWARE FOR A SUPER STRAIGHT FORWARD INSTALLATION. NOW NO LAPTOP IS NEEDED. THIS SYSTEM IS READY TO RUN RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX WITH SEVERAL BASE CALIBRATIONS. IT'S EVEN SELF LEARNING AS YOU DRIVE.

NOW YOU CAN CONTROL SEVERAL ENGINE OPTIONS USING AN ANDROID BASED CELL PHONE, AND IF YOU DON'T HAVE ONE THIS

OPTIONAL SEVEN INCH TABLET IS AVAILABLE. NOW TO FIND OUT MORE INFORMATION ON THE SYSTEM AND EVEN PURCHASE ONE, VISIT SUMMIT RACING DOT COM.

(PAT)>> IF YOU HAVE A BIG DISPLACEMENT VTWIN MOTORCYCLE, BEL RAY TOTAL PERFORMANCE LUBRICANTS OFFERS THIS SEMISYNTHETIC 20-W-50 MULTIGRADE OIL TO PROTECT YOUR ENGINE. UNIQUE ANTIWEAR PROPERTIES REDUCE VALVETRAIN WEAR, PISTON RING SCUFFING, AND BEARING WEAR. IT HAS EXCELLENT STABILITY IN TEMPERATURE AND OXIDATION, AND YOU CAN GET IT AS WELL AS OTHER BEL RAY PRODUCTS AT POWER SPORTS DEALERS ACROSS THE COUNTRY. WELL THAT'S ALL THE TIME FOR TODAY. WE'LL SEE YOU NEXT TIME.
