Default 523 hp @ 5900 rpm

David got the call from DART about an hour ago. Here I am standing in line at a store with my daughter waiting to pay for her school cloths, and David calls me. I am anticipating him telling me that alot of stuff was wrong and that it will be a costly repair. But that was not the case.

After looking through the motor DART said that it was a defective crankshaft, that they put in. So they changed the crankshaft and the bearings. Put it together, ran it on the dyno and everything looks good. It ran 523hp @ 5900 rpm with 513 ft lbs torque. WOW !!!

At no charge.

I am so excited. But I will have to wait til Monday to get the motor cause my brother is on his was to Norwalk for a race this weekend. I just can't stop smiling.

I am glad for you guys, that it was an easy ID of the issue, and that not only did they find it, but also replace it. That is going to be one mean Chevelle when you guys get it going again.

I can just about smell it, burning fuel, cooked rubber, mmmmmmmmmmmmmm.

The power that motor is producing, is still sinking in. I knew when I drove it, that something was wrong. But I still felt the power.

I don't think that we could have ever imagined things working out this way.

You guys, once it is dialed in with your car, that thing is going to haul some serious ass...like snap your neck and boil the tires at will fast.

The list will never end, as far as what we can/need to do. With finding out about the power the motor is putting out. We now have to think about the rear end, is it gonna be able to handle the power?

We have made it over the engine hurdle, now onto the next one. Let's just hope it is a little one.
