093- Power and Speed – Octopus – Rob Bolts – Callers

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio. Tom is has returned from Japan.

Finally, Tom returns.  He was in Japan for a trade show.  It sounds like it was actually pretty interesting as long as you like octopus.  He’s a sick man, what can we say.

The plan was to discuss Drag Week, and that was a complete swing and a miss.  We need to get Tim from Coast and Howard from Redline in the near future to go over the loose ends.  We will save that for another show.

Somehow the topic of rod bolts and engine building gets started.  Rod bots are by far the most stressed, as well as important, bolt in any engine assembly.  There has been lots of discussion of torque, stretch, angle, and a variety of combinations.  Mike is a straight up “know what you are working with, use your torque wrench guy”.  Tom sounds a little more of a stretch guy, and they both agree angle is a little strange overall.  Lubes, torque wrenches, and techniques are discussed.  It’s not super high level stuff, but it is stuff you need to know to be successful at preventing an oil pan failure.

Next Injector Dynamics Paul Yaw will be on.  This has been a much anticipated guest, and we hope all you guys get questions together and send them on Facebook…. or better yet CALL.  The guys will pick you up.

Live again next week Monday night at 7:00 PM EST on Mixlr.com.  Call in number 908 751 0211.  Live callers welcome, and this will be the line for giveaways.

091 – Power and Speed – Scott Clark – Real Tuners

Mike and Tad in studio, Tom is on a covert special OP dubbed “Operation NutBowl”.  

 

With this New Year the guys are going to continue focusing on getting quality quests. It’s always a blast to learn from some of the best in the business.  It’s not always easy to schedule, but when we get them it’s more than worthwhile.

There was not guest scheduled for tonight because Tom was away.  The show was going to be Mike, Tad, and good ole Fudd just shooting the breeze.  That all changed over the course of the day when we received a message from….

Scott Clark of Real Tuners.  Scott is going to be up in our area hosting an EFI school at Fonse Performance in South Jersey.  The dates as we have them are March 4th and 5th, and details can be found on the RealTuners Facebook page.  

Scott was on once before, and is a professional level tuner to say the least.  He has worked with many of the top names in our sport, and there is very little about fuel injection that he can’t address.  Mike and Tad discussed quite a few topics, and some of it does get a little more technical on this episode.  

Scott will be in for a “live” show on what we believe will end up being March 6th.  Scott, and the guys, would like to have this particular show be a “Ask the FI Guy” call in show.  All the listeners have plenty of time to gather questions, and this should be a great tech/learning experience.    

Live again next week Monday night at 7:00 PM EST on Mixlr.com.  Call in number 908 751 0211.  Live callers welcome, and this will be the line for giveaways.

090 – Power and Speed – BJ McCarty of VMP Performance

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.  

Happy New Year Everyone!  Lets make 2017 Healthy, Fast, and Safe!

We are all getting a little concerned about Mike.  He seems to be way way way into cleaning that Excursion.  He really might need some help….

Tonight BJ McCarty of VMP Performance calls in to discuss the history of VMP and the the direction of the company as of late.  Forced induction, specifically supercharging, has made its way under the hood of most domestic hotrods.  Ford Mustang, Chrysler Hellcat, and Chevrolet Corvette to name a few.  VMP has been known in the Mustang world for some pretty potent street packages utilizing the VMP superchargers.  Our very own Fireman Jeff actually had one their units, and several goodies from these guys.  The story of the company evolution is worth listening to, and it does not stop there.  VMP is moving into markets other than Ford, and that sure should get the attention of some factory supercharged guys.

Tom is in Japan next week, so Fudd will return once again to do the show.  He was nice enough to make the little Power and Speed… uhh metal things.. I guess.  So make sure to call in and thank em (or tool on em either or is fine)

Live again next week Monday night at 7:00 PM EST on Mixlr.com.  Call in number 908 751 0211.  Live callers welcome, and this will be the line for giveaways.

089 – Power and Speed – Anthony Berton of Engine Building 101

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.  No official guest, but lined up (we hope) for the coming weeks.

Well the holidays are here, and everyone is just coasting along.  This is a great season, and everyone should set aside all our differences.  Get a Ford guy a set of road flares or something for his stocking.

Tonight Anthony Berton the founder of the insanely popular Facebook group, Engine Building 101, calls in.  Antony started this because he was looking for legit tech help on the internet, and got really stupid info.  Being smart enough to separate fact from fiction he knew the info was bad, so he decided to do something about it.  He formed Engine Building 101 the Facebook group…. and started the cycle all over again.  (he jokes about it, we are not busting his balls)  It’s a good place to go and get info if you know how to watch he right guys.  Moderators and Admins are always on the lookout, and honestly we did find some very good conversation on the group.  Go check it out.  Laugh at the bad stuff and contribute if you really know your stuff. 

 

Live again next week Monday night at 7:00 PM EST on Mixlr.com.  Call in number 908 751 0211.  Live callers welcome, and this will be the line for giveaways.
