1972 BMW 2002 Touring Turbo
|Engine:||BMW M10 4cyl @ 7.4:1|
|Induction:||Dual Dellorto DHLA 40mm carbs w/ KKK K27 Turbo|
This sweet 1972 BMW 2002 Touring comes to us from all the way in Sweden. Owned and built by Niclas Carnjeskold, it features a slew of upgrades, most notably the KKK K27 Volvo truck turbo helping the carbs with their air and fuel delivery duties. While the engine features a bunch of additional mods, they all work in sweet harmony thanks in part to the spot on, high energy output of the XDI ignition system. No more engine failure due to sloppy timing and inadequate spark for this little Bimmer!
GT Light Nissan Sentra
|Class:||SCCA GT Light|
|Engine:||Nissan A-15 Inline 4|
|Ignition:||XDI-2 PC Programmable w/ MAP Sensor|
This awesome looking ’04 Nissan Sentra is owned and piloted by Mike Alexander of Alexander’s Auto Care in Winthrop Harbor, IL. It runs in the very competitive SCCA GT Light class. It sports a Don Preston built chassis, a Nissan A15 engine and a pair of Weber Carbs. This year, Mike decided to retire his venerable Electromotive HPV-1 ignition and upgrade to the new XDI-2 PC Programmable ignition. The XDI-2’s laptop programmable load and RPM based timing table gave Mike the extra tuning range to get another 2 seconds off his lap times compared to the HPV-1! Talk about dialed in! Look for Mike to make his presence known as he shows the EFI guys that with proper tuning, the carb crowd is alive and very well!
‘Big Red’ FFCobra
|Engine:||Ford Motorsports 460” Big Block|
|Induction:||VeryCoolParts.com Stack Injection Manifold|
|Ignition & Fuel:||Electromotive TECgt ECU and DFUs|
Electromotive Distributor and Tuner Wayne Presley of VeryCoolParts.com in Enterprise, AL offers some super trick ITB Manifolds for just about every Ford V8 out there, and builds some of the finest Factory Five Cobras and GT40s you’ll find anywhere. This is one of his creations. Dubbed ‘Big Red’, it features a Ford Motorsports 460 Big Block that looks anything but out of place in the front of this car. With over 550hp on tap in this featherweight, it must make for one wild ride! Is it just us, or do pushrod Fords look a thousand times cleaner without a distributor up front?
Super Comp Dragster
|Class:||NHRA Super Comp / IHRA Quick Rod|
|Engine:||572ci Dart Big Block Chev w/ 14° Big Chief Heads|
|Induction:||Multi Port Fuel injected on Methanol|
|Ignition & Fuel:||Electromotive TEC3r fuel and ignition system|
John Freeborn, owner of J&B Auto is responsible for just about every aspect of this awesome beast. From the J&B Auto custom chassis, to the methanol fueled monster hanging off the back end. While you wont find too many dragsters with EFI (yet), John knows a good thing when he sees it. With son Brent behind the wheel, the car finished 3rd in the national points for IHRA Quick Rod. Since ’05 the car has been mostly terrorizing the competition on a local level. With a switch to Methanol, look for this beast to make even more noise in ’08!
GT Light Honda CRX
|Class:||SCCA GT Light|
|Engine:||Honda LS-VTEC 1.8l|
|Induction:||Multi Port Fuel injected|
|Ignition & Fuel:||TECgt Engine Control System|
This Honda CRX is owned, tuned and driven by Electromotive Distributor and Tuner Peter Shadowen, co-owner of West Palm Beach, FL based RoadNRace Automotive. It is a RWD, Tube Chassis Honda CRX that competes in the SCCA GT Light class. Peter and co-owner Mark Ward, who runs a TECgt equipped Toyota Paseo in GT3, are regular fixtures at the SCCA National events, as well as the run-offs. Look for both cars to make their presence felt at this years run-offs in Topeka!
