El Camino on the Dyno 9-12-03
Up on the machine
for the first 4 cars:
|1984||Chevrolet||El Camino||350 (+.030)
|(see mods on this site)||139.8||256.0|
|1978||Chevrolet||Camaro||350 crate repl. motor||none||153.1||227.7|
|1998||Lincoln||Mark XIII||V8||Nitrous, gears, exhaust||225||270|
|1998||Lexus||GS400||V6||intake, exhaust, chip||246||250|
shows that the El Camino has been built for Torque. Everything I have
done is for
driveability, and not straight line performance. The torque registered
just 12 pounds less than the high tech V8 powered Nitrous injected Lincoln.
The peaks are at a little under 2000 and about 2800 RPM. You can feel the
torque pretty much whenever you want in most driving situations. More
torque than the Lexus that registered the highest HP mark. It was dissapointing
rear gears, and a huge list of other goodies is in order.
Are you listening Santa?
Below are some more pictures of the cars on the Dyno, and some others that showed up for the show.
The Fall Colors on the trip were nice too!
