One of GTO test vehicles came in today, it was a manual transmission car, and the dyno numbers were:
298.6 RWHP/326.9 RWTQ

I will get the graph posted as soon as I can scan it.

We will be using this car and two others for new product prototyping and development, SO STAY TUNED!

Yeah, not too shabby.

I am very excited about the new products that we will be prototyping to "wake" the GTO up.

I take it that is sarcasm because Ford engines typically produce so much torque... :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

The car is brand new with under 20 miles on it. Once it breaks in, it will make more power.

While I guess it'd only take one run to redline, isn't that a little hard on a motor with only 20 miles on it? Or just being one run it doesn't matter?

Good hard runs on the dyno are the only proper way to break an engine in, IMO. That is how you get the rings to seat properly. An engine that is babied from day one will always be a slug.

I tend to agree with scott somewhat. The engine needs to be babied in the first 500 or so miles IMHO. But that doesn't mean it shouldn't ever hit redline etc. Now running it to redline on every shift etc, yes thats bad, but a few good runs isn't bad in my opinion as long as you keep it limited to once or twice every couple of miles. Of course thats just my opinion.

It will? Even with my conservative heads and cam setup, I’m still over 400rwhp and the car is an absolute animal and I “babied” it. Sans a burnout here or there of course. :D
