Torture test this past Friday Night on the CS144 1-wire instant turn on Alternator with an L88 reproduction pulley.
Tested on the Olds Super Rocket V8.
Buzzed 6500-7,000 RPM.
Vertex magneto fired. Engine does not miss a beat or float valves.
Works great the CS144 alternator.
Shipped it off to a member on Grumps site, Germany for his SBC Muncie 4 1955 Chevy 210.

My Boss got in trouble today Gunny.
He had a phone meeting with all the regional TIC Tech In Charge with the main CEO owner last Friday.
Today He rolled in.
No notice.
Audited.
My Boss told the Head guy your ****ing wrong.
Ex US Marine.
So another US Marine showed up.

Bob said I might be the New TIC.
Told him its all political.

1st thing I would do is ask Who voted for President Donald Trump ?

Its a good one & ran & turns over freely.

I didn’t realize my 70 RA3 TA had that much torque. No wonder it launched like a bat outta hell.......
Oh Yeah.
That is why Pontiacs can 60 foot like few others can.
Torque.
1970 TA RA3 had 3.31 gears with A/C.
3.55 Gears no A/C.
3.73 Gears optional.


RAIV only came with 3.73 & No A/C available.

Been kicking the idea around for a while now Gunny.
Turbocharging.
Think it's the way to go also like You.

T6 Flange.
88mm - 101 mm.
Buy it and stash it away.

Favor Borg Warners.
Precision Turbo like Big Chief uses on the Crow GTO.
Sized right it can be used on 350ci - 480 cubic inches and deliver 1000 -1600 Hp .

Big Chief has Twin 98's in 2019.
There is a practical work around I have found for TOO BIG OF Inducer Turbo size...
Instant microsecond spool up and be in the boost curve Map. Right off of idle.

He has between 590-620 Flywheel Horsepower.

I talked to Kern Ostrich founder of HO Racing a while back.
Told him what I built & cam specs from Isky.
He said I had 600 HP !
Kept thinking Naaaa it seems high.
