044 – Power and Speed – Nail Polish, GT 350R, Car Shopping

Mike, Tom, Crunch, and Tad in studio. Well we all know car guys are very fashion conscience, and our very own Crunch is no exception.  He talks about the car guy honored tradition of getting his nails done… wait… WHAT?!?!?! Tad has found some interesting information about the Ford Mustang GT350R, and it sounds like it’s a hell of a car for a cheap price.  Carbon Fibre rims, flat crank, over 500 HP N/A, and even if you are a Chevy guy you have to admit it looks good as hell.  Looks like Ford did a great job with this…

Mike, Tom, Crunch, and Tad in studio.   Very single pointed subject matter today, correcting years of Tad’s Subaru handiwork.

041 – Power and Speed – Dyno 3.0, E85-E98, Firearm Sunday

Mike, Tom, Crunch and Tad in studio on a Sunday.?! Well, as luck would have it, “Hollywood Tom” will be leaving again and unavailable for Monday, so Sunday it is.  That is the beauty of a Podcast, we can always put something down. Tom finally got the 2JZ dyno session done, and with very good results.  The backstory is this was not just a dyno test of a 2JZ, this was a test of a new Manley piston design.  It seems that lots of crazy shit happens when you get into very high boost levels on these little motors.  The…
