Sorry, I stand corrected...... never stepped in it like that before........  shocked


Here is a Offy with a blower from 1965 or so. I think Dick Jones & Stu Hilborn built the setup.

They do have some similarities and you could have fooled me.
This has got to be my favorite thread.   cheers

That looks like a nice build.  Is it two cylinders from a V-8?

I believe that's a 4 cylinder IHC engine. They were basically 1/2 of a 392.

I was guessing Tempest. Half a 389.

I was thinking the Pontiac didn't have the curved valley rail section but you are right Rich, it is a Tempest.

my first ride was a 63 Tempest ,( or was it a 62 ? ),:~ :~  it was a four cylinder, 4 on the floor with a rope shaft to a transaxle.
it needed an alternator and had electrical gremlins.

it was given to me. I didn't put many miles on it. Don't even remember if it was a 2 door or 4 door. thinking 2 door - and it was a sedan.

,,, It's a 195 for sure!...
Not anymore, it isn't. smiley

I'm guessing this example followed some time after Mickey's half-a-Tempest ('62 or '63?). With a 2-71 blower, it made 257 HP on 25% nitro @ 5,000 RPM- which is where the dyno run ended, due to excess vibration. undecided As a blown-H engine it got him a record, but I don't remember what vehicle type.
