    Since there are so many who stop by here who are NOT SDC members and have probably never seen a copy of Turning Wheels over the years, let me post a pic of THE turbo-Stude... Jim Lange's Bonneville record holder (224+mph, set in '09). Salt willing he'll be back in August, new twin-turbo Stude engine and new Tremec 5-speed. Both were test run last summer at Wilmington. This is the current record-holding engine. The new one differs very little in outward appearance.

    Yes, as a matter of fact, it IS still registered, insured, and occasionally driven on the street!

I have followed Jim's progress since the beginning.before that another Stude nut pushed his Avanti with Paxton to near 200.His name escapes me now,met him at Springfield nats right after Brother in laws Hawk sent water pump shaft out for an airing!! What a year that was!!! anybody interested in turbo's look up out of print How to books there still around, and enjoy the ride. Happy Motoring, Doofus

          I'm sure in their Bonneville racing form they are now heavily modified, but what did those heads start life as?

            Hey Spriggs, those are Studebaker heads, HEAVILY modified. the intake ports have been completely milled out to valve pocket and new ports fabbed from blocks of aluminum. suspect this was partly done to match a 360 mopar manifold spacing wise and for better port alignment. nice trick! this is from an old copy of Total Performance magazine by Dick Datson. think their still around and chock full of good tips. Happy Motoring, Doofus

                Regarding Jim's heads, they started as NOS 289 V/8s that Jim hogged out, toyed with, and tested over the years. I've the flow-bench numbers of several of them compared with everything from stock 289, Ron Hall's R-3s, and several other modifies. Jim's have consistently flowed the best, which is no surprise. Bo Bert in his 9.99 second quarter-mile GT used Jim's heads, as well. Dave Bloomberg used Jim's heads. And, just to get the story straight, the aluminum plates used for adapters do NOT go to a Chrysler intake on Jim's car, but instead an ancient, Olds Hilborn mechanical fuel-injection (non-electronic dictated by the "Classic" class in which Jim runs).

                Btw, we are leaving Effingham, IL Aug 12 to pull out to B'ville this year. After two years of Speed Week being canceled (and earlier this year being told that racing was probably done there for the foreseeable future) the thing is ON, AGAIN!!! Maybe this year we'll go FAST... but, that's what we always say, hehehehe!!!

                      Avanti ran the following Friday evening. 289 +.060 motor with single turbo, no intercooler. Max boost at the 1/8 was 12 lbs and max at the finish was 13 lbs. with rpm limiter at 6400 from 1000 ft out. (tom c)

                        Does anyone know if he is running a knock sensor and if so where it's mounted? that would a valuable aid to avoiding problems. Thanks , Doofus

                          I don't believe Tom has on on that engine.... (but iirc....Ted was running one on one of his engines)

                          But, according to the ASE, it could be mounted anywhere on the block, heads, or intake manifold.

                            Guess you gotta change your screen name to 10SecAvanti, but maybe should wait a few weeks since you might have to change it again to 9SecAvanti .

                            What gear ratio is in the rear end now?

                              Pretty good articles DEEPNHOCK, but to some extent they both continue the misuse of preignition and detonation, and the Autospeed article even includes the unfortunate non word "pre-detonation".

Not a racer just a daily driver with 27 TT axle. still have to much heat trapped under hood which boils fuel in carb bowl. looking to add system to pull hot air out but still drive in hot weather in spite of.limited space required turbo to be side mounted.A/C comp on custom bracket where batt sat. batt moved back on custom bracket. P/S exh. manifold flipped and short "Y" joins crossover pipe and man.stub to feed turbo. use 2 different turbo's, rajay 3,70E70 in winter but to much heat in summer. larger Airesearch for hot weather, it's design doesn't heat pressurized air so much. 30 min to switch, harder to change plugs! 53 uses 2 flipped exh man. to feed turbo but wiring is still incomplete so no legal testing.3 in side pipes w/baffles kinda let neighbors know i'm slipping out for testing and they look the other way as it's handy to have a car savvy neighbor. need to add p/s to 62 as shoulders getting a little stiffer and down shifting and steering in curves getting sluggish. both cars 4 spds. hope this gives someone ideas.

                                Well I want to turbocharge a stock 289 full flow. There have been no mods done to the engine. I was thinking single turbo mounted directly off the flipped exhaust manifold if there is enough room under the hood ('59 Hawk). It will be on a driver, not a racer. I just want a little extra power. Something more than a stock goldenhawk supercharger, but it doesnt need to run 11 seconds in the 1/4 mile.
