  • 2006 Engine Masters Competition

    Every other year, the magazine "Popular Hot Rodding", in conjunction with "Engine Masters", (http://www.popularhotrodding.com/enginemasters/), sponsors a small block engine building competition. If you look at the competition website, you'll notice a couple of noteworthy things. First, there has been no Studebaker engines in the competition, and second, the engines that have previously competed put out some astronomical horse power and torque numbers. Don't be fooled though, the engines built for this competition are veryhttp://racingstudebakers.com/stl-web...wforum.php?f=9http://RacingStudebakers.com

    You KNOW that Ken and I are in! Need an engine to start with? Parts? We gotta get Nemish or someone of his caliber on board. Ted, Bob, Jim, - you know who I'm talking about! Let's kick some small-block butt! [}]

        l help wherever I can Sonny, but in reading the rules, you can see that this is an advertising and marketing promotion designed to sell ad's in their magazine.... Shoot, name all the Studebaker 'commercially available' parts out there that would fit in 'their' rules....
        (copy of that part of the rulebook)


        COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE
        "Commercially available" is defined as any engine component that is or was generally available for purchase by consumers prior to April 30, 2003 (the date of contestant selection). Contestants may be required to provide proof of purchase and/or undisputable proof of availability on any contested engine component(s) or face possible disqualification from the competition.

        Man, that really ties your hands where it comes to headers, heads, and intake manifolding... Unless you want to offer up similar items for sale (and place an ad in their magazine)... But hey, that may not be a bad idea. Take a mini-ad out in one issue of their magazine and offer for sale just those components... You'd satisfy the rule and be able to use those parts. You'd just have to build up a few extra of everything.

        Sounds like fun, and a challenge...

          Uhm, I meant to have a chat with you about WHO was gonna be making and selling those items Jeffster.

Ah, do you think your ad will only have to run in one magazine?

              Jeff has hit it on the head. It is really a vendor contest just to bring attention to their advertiser's adds. Still could do the project as the results would be fun and we might find out a new thing or two about performance mods.

                That, AND it would be nice to have a Studebaker team giving the whole of Studebakering a good shot in the international arm. [8D] Hell, even for nothing more than to let the brand-x crowd know that we're not the push-overs that they keep telling each other we are. [B)]

                  I make a motion that we try and see if some of our favorite vendors would like to run small ads so that we technically qualify. Hell, I'd even throw in some bucks to BUY those ads for vendors if that's what it took.
                  As the tone of this is developing - maybe we WON'T even come close to "winning" - but they'll damned sure know we're here. And the magazine will have to AT LEAST give some acknowledgement to the world of Studebakering as more than just a sheet metal source! [}]

                      I'll build you whatever you need that I have the ability to build Sonny... And I will build a couple three and offer them for sale, just to satisfy 'the rules'..
                      I also believe that just the effort will draw attention to the cause... You may get ruled out, but I'd bet there's an article in that there story...

                        The donor engine looks very promising. Under the rules no boost is allowed so with only natural aspiration conditions I see the following engine change requirements. The compression is going to have to go way up. I am sure the current compression is down around 7.5:1. because it was designed to survive high boost. This will mean a piston change. The cam, though roller, mostly likely has a turbo grind on it and that also may need to be changed. Then the intake will need to be upgraded to a ram design and etc. Then testing will be needed, etc. A challenge for sure because whatever you build is going to be controlled by the parameters of the competition rules. If the requirements of the rules can be satisfied I think the focus should be on surviving the 10 dyno pulls with a respectable high torgue and hp numbers. We are at a 100 cubic inch displacement disadvantage on the first round and it is up hill from there.

                              Just a thought, but wasn't the R4 the most powerful naturally aspirated Stude V8? I believe it had a 12 to 1 or there abouts compression ratio. Maybe using it as a model would be a good starting place?
