127 – Power and Speed – Eric Brooks of HP Tuners

Mike and Tom in studio. Tad broke a ball joint and is sitting on the side of the road (we had to tell you or you might not have noticed)  We have to apologize ahead of time to Eric Brooks and our fans.  We were in a bad position after having missed two weeks.  We had a SEMA delay, an issue with the internet service being messed up, and now almost a third straight week of no show.  Mike got called in to a surprise budget meeting he could not miss.  That messed up our time, our prep, and the…

126 – Power and Speed – Greg Banish of Calibrated Success

Mike, Tom, Tad, and SS Jeff in studio.   Well Mike has gone and done it.  He talked about it with Sloppy Matt, but he did it.  Mike is the proud owner of a 2011 Chevy Tahoe, and we have no doubt that HP tuners will put Mike in an an institution.  The oddest part of all of this Mike actually witnessed a crime! We love repeat guests, and tonights guest could not come at a better time.  Greg Banish of Calibrated Success is one of the best resources for the process of calibration while taking into account the OEM…

125 – Power and Speed – Dave Steck of DSX Tuning

Mike, Tom, Tad, and SS Jeff in studio. Our buddy Jeff stopped by tonight to fill us in on his SS that Mike has been helping him with.  The initial tunes are done and the car is solidly in the 10s.  There is more left in it, but it is a true street car.  It drives like a stock car, no meth injection, and still weighs in at 4400LBS.  It’s really nice to see this working out so well, and we hope for more data soon. Since Mike has been fumbling about with HP Tuners tonights guest is a good…

123 – Power and Speed – Eric Dillard of Proline Racing

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio. 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…

124 – Power and Speed – Matt Happel of Sloppy Mechanics

Mike, Tom, and Tad 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.…

122 – Power and Speed – Joe Rivera of ProTorque

Mik, 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…

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio. Sat night fights.  Mayweather is still the man.  Hats off to McGregor for stepping into this and making a good showing.  (and Mike lost 5 bucks) It’s always a privilege to talk to the true legends of our sport, and tonight is one of those nights.   Tonight on Power and Speed Kenny Duttweiler calls in to the show for, in his words, an open forum discussion.  Kenny has been a long time performance enthusiast and from an early age spent his time reading the magazines of the day.  Listen as he tells how…

118 – Power and Speed – Tony Palo of T1 Race Development and Injector Dynamics

Mike, Tom, Fireman Jeff, and Tad in studio.   Fireman Jeff is in studio and he is the luckiest man around about now.  He broke a lifter, and hurt nothing else in the process.  That NEVER happens, but you always see the craziest stuff if you are around this long enough. This is the second attempt at tonights guest, but well worth it.   Tony Palo from T1 Race Development and Injector Dynamics joins the show.  Tony was on once before with Paul Yaw, and together they are the Co-owners of Injector Dynamics.  Separately they both own their own companies,…

117 – Power and Speed – Doug Cook of Motion Raceworks

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio. Mike has been super busy, Tom had a tree fall on the house he is selling, and Tad is… well…  always Tad. We really like talking to genuine good people.  There are lots and lots of them in this sport, and tonights guest is no acceptation. Doug Cook from Motion Raceworks called in to let all the listeners know about the Drag Week meet and greet they are having.  Saturday September 9th to meet the people, see the cars, drink and so on.  All of the proceeds are being donated to Operation Homefront.  Like…

116 – Power and Speed – Billy Godbold of Comp Cams

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio. 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,…

115 – Power And Speed – Dave Vassar Nitrous Outlet

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.    Oh boy, here we go again.  Fans will remember the show after Trump won the election Mike happened to play a Kid Rock song for the show open.  There is no way we could have known this guy is going to run for office in Michigan, and in some early polling he’s actually up.  Well we know this guy certainly isn’t gonna be able to say he’s a nice wholesome gentleman…crazy times The Team 260 guys (you have to say Two Six Oh or they get touchy) have been trying to put on a…

014 – Power And Speed – Richard Guido and Billy Armstrong Rocky Mountain Race Week

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.  Well this is a first for us. We have had guests from manufacturers, guests from EFI training, and guests that are racers.  We have never had a racer get to call in during a race week event.  To make this twice as nice, we have not one racer, but two! Richard Guido and Billy Armstrong both call in while competing in Rocky Mountain Race Week.   We had Richard on few shows back to get their Drag Week stories.  For those that don’t remember his show, he is a crazy Canadian who runs an…

113 – Power and Speed -Greg Banish of Calibrated Success

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.    Tom takes an Uber, Mike has a plan, and together they failed.  With that out of the way, the shows as of late are really full of good info from good people.  Shane T, Paul Yaw, Ben Strader and now…   Greg Banish. Greg has a very different perspective from most calibrators (tuners).  Greg has worked with GM, Ford, Saleen, Lotus, and Roush.  He has seen the inside of how the sausage is made for what we drive, or lust after, every day.   Think about that.   Guys like Greg are the reason what…

112 – Power and Speed – Clark Rosenstengel – Jason Doisher – DragWeek

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.  Most of the listeners know that the guys are really into DragWeek, and tonights two guests are the main reason they even started looking into it at all. Clark Rosenstengel 2016 DragWeek Class Champion calls in.  Clark was not resting on his win over the winter at all.  Clark stepped up his program in a major way with a brand new engine built by Steve Morris.  When we say stepped up we me like billet water jacketed block stepped up.  The race is won in the garage, and Clark has been on it this…

111 – Power and Speed – Ben Strader Founder EFI University – Doc Street Outlaws

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…

110 – Power and Speed – Shane Tecklenburg of Tuned By Shane T

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.  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…

108 – Power and Speed – Dave Kogan of Kogan Racing Engines

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.   Sometimes you just have to clear the air.  Mike addressed an issue with a Facebook guy that has taken a turn into the personal.  Everyone knows Mike is a we bit hostile, but the whole Facebook thing he did not start.  He questioned data, and the other party got personal.  Most of it is still up there on the Power and Speed Fan page.   Tonights guest is Dave Kogan of Kogan racing engines.  Dave is a super talented engine builder from the Northeast and located in Long Island NY.  Kogan racing engines…
