Any dyno numbers, or even wild guesses, for that setup? It's very sharp looking!

I had a guy show up at my house with a DR twin screw on an '87/'88 5-speed that was tuned by Louie Ott, looked the car over and told him he was good to go, enjoy it but be careful doing 1st/2nd gear runs. Apparently he was banging on it real good and busted the transmission the same week. Asked me what it would cost to fix it and told him if he could find a box I'd exchange it or send it to Greg Brown. I think that car has been through a couple of owners since then, it could be the one that Kevin in Atlanta has right now but he avoids answering that question when I ask him.

They sure are quick, I have always wanted a DR or Hans set up but each time I get the $$ together to blow on it, I remember I really need paint and body work, then the wife finds something around the house to spend it on.

Color?

The one Kevin has is, what I thought, Jeannie's old 90GT. That's the one where one of the POs roached the tranny.

There are only 5/6-ish of those in existence. It's possible that there's a black '87 and that would be Greg Nettle's if someone got his car and all the D.R. pieces he accumulated and finished it up. But, you'd know it if you saw it 'cause it's an '87 auto converted to 5-speed with factory GTS flares installed by Greg's folks when he did is major refresh.

blown87. I still miss that red neck fucker. Good friend he was.

This is the ex-Jeannie '90GT.

Sorry. Missed your question first time 'round. No dyno 'brag sheet' numbers.

AO on The Other Forum posted some brag sheets a long, long time ago. Numbers might be in his signature. But, he was running one of 3 "alpha" prototypes and with a smaller pulley. The Alphas had a more restrictive intake. The Betas (like mine) had a redesigned intake that flowed a lot, lot better.

SOTP (Seat of the pants) numbers are ~425 ft-lbs / ~385 hp (crank.) The top-end was never tuned for timing - requires days of dyno - so the timing is 'safe' not 'good.' I think there's another 50 hp in there with proper dyno time. My todo list has included rectifying two issues with the Betas before spending bucks on dyno for about 10 years now. Next winter (21/22) I will pull the engine, take it down to the crank, build it back up with some special bits, fix the Beta issues and dyno tune. That's the plan at least. Even without a 'good' tune it's a crap-ton of fun.

My biggest complaint is that there's not enough supercharger gear whine.

With a little JB-Weld it should work just as good as this CC bolt that snapped at ~3 ft-lbs.

Whoa. Speaking of JB weld.

Doing an inner door handle last night at about midnight. Found this inside the door. Also had to re-thread the door handle.
