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…

109 – Power and Speed – Paul Yaw and Tony Palo of Injector Dynamics

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio.  Serious moment from Power and Speed.  Listen guys, bad guys are bad guys.  Go easy on the terrorist stuff.  We all have strong feelings about these assclown, but don’t let that cloud your judgement about people.  Maybe if we all focused on the car guy end things would be a little better. Tonight we have two heavy hitters in this industry.  Paul Yaw and Tony Palo from Injector Dynamics call in to go over some products and discuss some tech.  The latest from Injector Dynamics is the ID F750 fuel filter.  The level of detail…

107 – Power and Speed – Mike McGinnis of Cobb Tuning – Saeed and Mohamed UAE Custom Show

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio along with two special guests from Dubai.   Saeed Almarzouqi and Mohmed Ahmad came in with Tom.  We can’t tell you how amazing it was to have guys from thousands of miles away that share our common interest in all things fast.  Saeed is the man behind the Custom Show in the UAE that Tom attends every year.  We really hope these guys make our studio a stop every time they are stateside. The Team 260 guys checked in, the Neglection race has been postponed due to weather.  These guys, and others are welcome to come…

106 – Power and Speed – Allison Black of Dynocom Dynos

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio. Someone help Chief from the 405.  The 80s called and they want their sox back.  Jeez dude. A caller from really close by calls in to tell us he took none of our advice.  He wanted a blower and decided to go with a nitrous kit.  Clearly Mike wasn’t paying attention at first, but I will side with Mike on this one.  150HP wet on a dry manifold should be ok, but man that is touchy when you get on them hard.  We know they can work but those manifolds were designed for air.…

105 – Power and Speed – Jason Hoots Dragweeker

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio. Poor Tad, he’s hurting.  We got older, and stuff goes wrong.  Kinda like an old car you keep fixing.  Tad has a case of the gout, and almost did not make the show.  Hope ya feel better buddy. Here we go, the great head debate rages on.  It should first be noted Mike was actually respectful in his opinion and gave the guy credit for what he accomplished in this world of LS engines.  With that being said, the overwhelming opinion from very competent people is that the test is invalid.  Why, we don’t…

104 – Power and Speed – Adam Hodson and Nick Taylor of Team 260

Mike, Tom, and Tad and Headgames Dave in studio. Dave from Headgames actually lives pretty close to the studio, so it’s nice when he can drop by.  Dave and Mike go at it a little bit about heads, but don’t let that fool you.  He was there to pick up Mikes heads, and trust us, Mike is very sure about everything he does when it comes to getting work done. Drag Week guys continue, but this week it’s something a little different.  Adam Hodson and Nick Taylor of Team 260 called in to give more than just Drag Week info.…

103 – Power and Speed – Jason Harding of Katech – Alex Corella Drag Week

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio. Drag week continues to monopolize the podcast.  There are so many things to discuss, and Mike is researching everything 24/7.  When questions come up our goto guy is Jason Harding from Katech motorsports.  This time, it’s an odd issue about what is going on the with the EPA and tuners?  Jason knows all about the ins and outs of EPA approval and practices.  We will have more about this in future shows, but it is scary stuff for the tuners and street guys.  Seriously, if we go to Jason for answers you should too.  Doesn’t…

102 – Power and Speed – UAE Custom Show – DragWeeker Matt Blasco

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio. It seems Tad is much more of a dork than previously expected.  Tad’s car is delayed, in part because good ole Tad seems to be quietly trying to a “build thread” on some Subaru forums and won’t proceed without… wait for it… pictures.  I can’t even imagine why, but this whole thing is gonna haunt em for a while. Tom was away last week at the UAE Custom show, and we don’t think everyone realizes  this area of the world is going car crazy.  The Custom Show is getting bigger and bigger every year.…

101 – Power and Speed – Dave Localio – DragWeeker Richard Guido

Mike, Tom, Tad, and special guest Dave Localio of HeadGames in studio. We have only had the chance to have a guest in studio a few times, and it’s always easier than talking on the phone.  Dave Localio is responsible for some very serious boosted cars with insane boost levels.  The prep of the factory head is crucial at these boost levels.  The TX2K event that just concluded featured one is his customers cars.  Don Summerton calls in to recap this event, and you should listen to the boost levels on these 2JZ cars.  Dave lives closer than I realized and…

100 – Power and Speed – Travis Ray Drag Week competitor

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio. None of us even noticed, but show number 100.  Crazy stuff.  Thanks to the fans for sticking with us.  We may tool on them from time to time, but we really do appreciate all the listeners.   Project SubiTard is getting close.  Tad has his new engine ready to go from IAG.  The parts, car, and everything is finally set.  He has a few items to get to this finished up, but he will be on the road soon.  It will still look like crap, but it will be a pretty stout street car.…

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio on a Sunday. Sunday Sunday Sunday.  All the NJ guys will all know where that comes from.  Sunday recording this week due to travel plans and impending snow storm. We always try to have tech guys where we can, and we all like learning from the best people in the business.  Tom knows just about everyone, and if he doesn’t he knows someone who does.  There is no shortage of great people who can come on, and this one is for the engine guys out there. Phillip Data from King Engine Bearings calls in…

097 – Power and Speed – Jason Harding of Katech

Mike, Tom, and Tad in studio. This has to be said right up front, Mike has a toothache and is in pretty bad shape.  Hopefully he get it fixed up at the creepy dentist tomorrow. As they say, the show must go on! A caller by the name of Shawn calls in.  Looking for a valve train tech, and boy that is a subject.  When it comes to valve train it’s all about stability.  People end up building on knowledge over the years, and can’t replace practical experience and testing.  The guys will steer him right over Facebook. Speaking of…

098 – Power and Speed – Scott Clark and Chris Bishir – Drag Week

Mike, Tom, Tad, and in studio Scott Clark.   We were all looking forward to this all week.  Drag Week registration opened, and we are in.  Talk about nice timing, Scott Clark ran his tuning school this past weekend at Fonse Performance and was able stop by the studio the night we record.  This whole Drag Week thing has everyone wound up.  Tom says we are winning, Mike wants to win, Scott says good luck with that!  It’s not as easy thing to do, and things that should not break do and just when you don’t need them to.  One aspect…
