  • Fast studebaker V8 recipes ????

    I read and re-read every Turning Wheels issue with the Pure Stock Musclecar Drags coverage,and always want more ! George Krem's R3 Plain Brown Wrapper,Ted Harbit's Stude Tomato and Chicken Hawk,and all the other Stude powered racers are an addiction for me.I se George has a supercharged Lark going together that makes me drool.

    I am most fascinated with the supercharged engines,and have plans to either build another 59-60 Lark 2 door post with a blower,manual trans and make a real mindblower sleeper,or make my 57 Golden Hawk really perform while still appearing stock to most people.

    So besides the obvious R2,R3 setups,what specs are guys using nowdays to make a Studebaker V8 really go?

    Ken, have you been following Jim Pepper's various insertions in The Co-Operator from time to time, about how to make a Studebaker V-8 go fast, depending on your time and money? Jim has made some excellent suggestions periodically over the last several years.

    The January 2009 Turning Wheels didn't contain a Co-Operator or Almanac, as usual for the large International Meet issue, but both features will return as normal in February.

    Among the items coming up in the February 2009 Co-Operator is almost a page of advice from Jim Pepper in response to yet another member's inquiry about how to warm up his V-8. BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

        This subject has been covered in lengthy detail many times over several years. A search here and over on Racing Studebakers will give lots of interesting reading. Everything known has been shared and is there for you.
