I have been on a hot streak over the last couple weeks in seeing horsepower made in virtually every way a gearhead could dream up. Lots of nutso stuff in various NHRA classes ranging from 900ci nitrous engines to tiny 135ci tubo mills in drag machines. I was at the Diesel Power Challenge watching Cummins Power Stroke and Duramax monsters roar as well. We’re talking torque in the 2,000+ ft/lb range! Naturally this got me to thinking. If I have seen this much diversity it must mean that all of you in reader land have an opinion or favorite way to make your ponies. How do you best like to make ’em?
Do you like buzzy little engines that are super light and efficient? Do you like big cubic inch mills that live in lower RPM bands but make major grunt? Do you like diesel engines equipped with a brace of turbochargers that create torque on mind-numbing levels? We’ve seen all of those things and more over the last nine days and now we want to hear from you!
