Kenny Duttweiler holds court at PRI

Kenny Duttweiler holds court at PRI

By Martha Maglone: About six or seven years ago, noted engine builder Kenny Duttweiler was invited to speak at the PRI show. They told him to look respectable and show-up at 7:30am, half an hour before his presentation. Hair cut neatly, finger nails cleaned, the appearance of a successful businessman, he duly arrived. It was the biggest empty space he’d ever seen. “Must have been three hundred empty chairs or more; they’re optimistic, I thought.” By 8:00am the place was packed. Following his feats of power production with the famous land-speed record breaker, the Streamliner, Kenny Duttweiler is admired as much for capturing the turbo era and its mood at the Bonneville Salt Flats as the life he has lived since the age of 12, cleaning carbon deposits from engine valves in the flower of his youth with his father . Naturally aspirated or turbocharged: the difference is dramatic Last year in naturally aspirated form, the Streamliner generated 642hp compared to 2660hp with the turbochargers engaged—same engine, same day.  “I had 70 pulls on the dyno,” he comments, “some of them normally aspirated, some at different boost levels, some with vacuum in the sump and some not. But when I hook up those turbochargers, adjust boost levels to 45psi, boy, does it make power!” Indiana Convention Center, Indianapolis, Saturday, Dec 10, 8 till 8:50am: Kenny’s presentation is open to all, a free walk-in and sit-down affair. Expect astute analyses followed by a question-and-answer session. So head for room number 243, grab a seat and...
What is a good clutch?

What is a good clutch?

There are several schools of thought on the question of what constitutes a good clutch. But first there are two separate strands to this narrative that need to be addressed: street or track. It’s key to distinguish whether the car will be used mostly for high-performance street-travel or for track use and its purpose needs to be decided. In either case the clutch has to transmit the car’s horsepower and torque and a stock clutch assembly will flounder in thermal shock and abuse, even in a slightly modified car.

Update on new Hemi cylinder heads for small-block Fords

Update on new Hemi cylinder heads for small-block Fords

After twenty years of reporting developments in racing and performance parts, it’s useful to remember just how confounding it is to accurately predict what new designs might appeal and what might not. But the response to our recent account of the new small-block Ford Hemi cylinder head from Hammerhead Performance Engines was unprecedented. It inspired tens of thousands. Distinguished innovations and their inherent beauty, their complicated geometry and the precision of their machined parts are the things that motivate us all. This being the case, here below are a few of the latest photographs illustrating the assembly of the 427cu-in block on which the first Hemi heads will be attached. This week, December 8-10, Greg Brown, the product creator will debut the new heads, rockers, valve covers at the 2016 PRI exhibition in Indianapolis. His exhibit can be observed at the World Products booth #1343. Contact Greg at: hammerheadperformanceengines.com Read the original story...
