yeah I saw that as well. I guess they could batch fire a second set of injectors using the other 2 outputs. however I thought they were using 6 on this build.

The build can go either way. It has a GT3 injector manifold and a modified GT3 injector manifold. Both will be tested on the engine dyno.

Last Monday, the motor was fired up. It was warmed up. RPM's did not exceed 2,500. It was then turned off and let cool.

Neil will now disconnect the exhaust and remove the covers and adjust the valves. We had spent about 60K designing and making billet cams several years back.This was detailed in this thread. The cams are single lobes with solid lifters. We need to make sure these babies are adjusted correctly. There were no oil or coolant leaks.

After a complete check Neil will re start the motor and finish the tuning process.

Sometime next week myself and Rob from Scargo Racing will fly down to Monrovia and observe the motor going through it's paces before it is crated and shipped back to Scargo Racing. It should be a plug and go installation as the motor was fitted and removed in a car in Monrovia several times to verify all points of connection, electronic connections and checked for chassis clearances.

I have spoke with Neil at Performance Development and Rob at Scargo. Neil said everything checked out perfect from the first warm up dyno. Rob is schedule to go to some event next week and then off to a well deserved vacation. Rob and I will fly down right after he returns from his vacation in early October to buy off on the final engine dyno.

Nice. Should be fun to see when done. I’m sure you’re looking forward to that day.

I have a correction. Performance Developments is located at 1643 Monrovia Ave in Costa Mesa CA.

A dyno that is coupled directly to an engine is known as an engine dyno. It is the only true way of knowing how much hp a engine produces without transmission, drive train, etc. As a note, once the engine is installed in the chassis, it will be tuned again on a chassis dyno,
