Nimesh just sent me a picture of a crankable engine stand he just built. It's just as perfect looking as the R3 engine on it! [8D]
He said he's also building a dyno in his basement.

It made 434 hp and 414 ft-lbs torque at 5850 rpm. It will make more with a better supercharger. It is just an SN60 with Jon Erb's impeller and heavy springs. I will put the VR-4 on it tomorrow and dyno it again on Tues and let u know wat the difference is.

Here's a video of it running. [8D]

I suspect that he spent more on that test stand than I did on half the Studebakers I have owned! [:0]:D

Very Impressive, indeed. So, when is the revered Nimesh going to have a complete line of new Studebaker V8 cams ground on new cores available to us for under $200 each? Then, I will be really, really impressed.

I really like Nimesh's attention to detail - that engine looks like candy!

The vid is great too - love that Stude sound, it is quite different.

I'm very interested to see how the VR4 Paxton does. I wonder how much boost can be run with a VR4 and pump gas?

Matthew, maybe you can post a printout of the dyno results.

Thanks for the post Matt. Thats sweet music to my ears.[8D] Now that song will be stuck in my head all day.[:p] I guess I'll have to stick it to the floor a few times in the Lark on the way to work. I'll see if that helps.[:0]

John, the battery is surrounded by 3/4" aluminum so the batter is not going to shift. I doubt a 30 pound batter is going to jump out of its casing.

The radiator is a Griffin aluminum piece with the filler neck on the passenger side on top. I can post more pictures if need be. I do have an electric fan that will be going on too with a charging system.

There is also a superflo dyno being retro-fitted into my basement and should be ready in a month or so if I don't have any set backs.

The cams are still not ready. The manufacturer keeps jerking me around on the timeframe. My calls don't get returned and I have to keep calling them twice a week. They have promised me that I will have them by mid Feb.

I have 10 more sets of connecting rods in the works and those should be ready by March.

I will post and have a video when I re-dyno this with a VR-4. Matthew has been a great help to me in posting the videos and posts. Thanks Matthew!

Thanks for your time,
Nimesh

Ok, Nimesh got the VR-4 on the R3. (The one in the beginning of this thread). He says...

Ok here we go: 434 HP and 414 ft-lbs with 93 octane amoco. With nothing done and running 110 octane racing fuel with the exact same setup got 451 HP and 421 ft-lbs. The reason I ran the same setup was because with the VR-4 GSS I would have to run 110 because of the boost increase. So this would make only ONE variable... namely the VR-4 GSS supercharger. By the way, the SN 60 was putting out 9 lbs at the blower, and around 6.5 psi manifold pressure. With the VR-4 GSS it made 489 HP and 446 ft-lbs, showing 10 psi manifold pressure, and around 13-14 at the blower. So now you can see that it made 38 more HP just with the blower swap. I know I could have broken into the 500HP mark with a slightly smaller diamter SC pulley. All these runs were with the standard diameter SC pulley and 8" crank pulley. The High Output SC pulley would have been too much. I don't have a size inbetween the two so I guess now I will mill one up.

Amazin' ain't it? [8D]

Another video and more pics coming soon. ;)

Ok, Nimesh got the VR-4 on the R3. (The one in the beginning of this thread). He says...

Ok here we go: 434 HP and 414 ft-lbs with 93 octane amoco. With nothing done and running 110 octane racing fuel with the exact same setup got 451 HP and 421 ft-lbs. The reason I ran the same setup was because with the VR-4 GSS I would have to run 110 because of the boost increase. So this would make only ONE variable... namely the VR-4 GSS supercharger.

Nimesh, that is beautiful stuff right there! I hope everyone will pardon me while I enter my "Wayne's World" mode ...

Nor do I see a beltguard! One is required by the OSHA on any equipment with exposed belts such as this one. Should the authories ever make a surprise visit to his premisis to perform a check-up, you can be sure it will get noted!![:0]:D

Yes, I do not have a belt guard on the engine stand. I've seen people with stude frames used as crankable stands. I do have a guard in the works.

Maybe you should come over and pay a visit Craig if you are an authority.

I'd love to come for a visit:D But yes, I design belt guards (among other components) for pumping stations and compressors for oilfield and fire protection, so indeed, I do have a bit of insight on which safety requirements which have to be met!!:)

Thanks for the input. However, it is for personal use. I do not have a commercial facility and employees where I am liable for legal issues and strict work related guidelines. It is basically analagous to someone jacking up their car in the driveway and not using a jack stand. That also does not meet safety standards. Also, the operation I have going on right now is in the privace of my home and when I do set myself up in my commercial building things will be different. But I do appreciate your guidelines on safety.

Same as my garage. I somehow thought (by previous posts) you have a commercial operation. It was a 'heads-up', that was all. About the closest I get to being 'public' with my garage is the odd club garage tour on a cold winter day, etc.

Nahhh, he just keeps a clean work area ;). One message the rest of us can walk away with :). To throw in guidelines on safety, having MSDS sheets is another big one. Since many of us have chemicals that can burn, explode, or in general cause bodily or property harm, the sheets which are usually affixed to the side of the chemical, tell the medic or firefighter what to throw at the chemical in an emergency. The chemistry and medical labs I worked at years ago had them in binders in alphabetical order on a shelf in the office. Like the previous posts, an unduly requirement for a place that's liable, just plain good advice for the home garage.
