benchmark definetly can put together a motor, but it's the driver really.
swap drivers and I bet arthur still wins. That's why he and regis are always up front, they have great machines, but they can drive the rubber off em.

OK, that makes sense then. Not sure what happened to the PM, wasn't ignoring you.

The key to making power with any engine is the cylinder head, regardless of displacement.
We did 3 months of port shape development and sacrificed a few heads before we settled on our current design. We now CNC machine the ports, the intake manifold, and the combustion chamber. This provides extremely good consistency and speeds up the process. All 5 valves are replaced with oversize stainless valves, the guides are replaced with high perf guides (all 5, not just the center intake), and the seats are reshaped with a Newen seat cutting machine. The Newen is able to cut any shape or angle that you want. It is a $100,000 dollar machine and even Ferrari uses them to do their F1 heads. Just the valve seat shape alone picked up 10 cfm of port airflow versus a typical "performance valve job". We finish it off with new springs and titanium retainers along with some different valve stem seals. Our finished head is flowing over 300cfm on the intake port.
The cylinder head is an exchange program. You send in your stocker (or the whole engine), and you get a race prepped head back.
The CNC finished head retails for $1289. This is not the cheapest head work out there, but I believe it is the best.
PM me for Rhinotalk pricing and details about the rest of the engine.

I'm not sure who called Chris & told them they were not running 686 but I will put my money with my motor. Bench Mark builds one of the best motors in the world. But I would put up $10,000.00 that his 686 will not out drag race my Weller 797. I have proven that plenty of times. Tod & HRT have a golden combination; Driver, Great handling car, & a great motor. Weller team is the new comer this year in Cali, You can't count us out yet. That my story & I'm sticking to it

It sure does, hopefully we can get a bunch of the Rhinotalk members at Chula vista CORR on july 26/27 to check out our racing friends race for the Checkered flag. Some of the Booyaa Crew went to pomona last race and met some new faces also, great time.
