Dandy Engines played host to the “Project Digger” crew this week. After a day on the dyno thier blown BB Ford made 938 HP and 835 ft lbs. Enough to smoke the tracks on a tank, let alone the tyres on thier project LTD.
We would like to thank CPL Ben Hewlett, CPL Chris Newman, CFN Doug Street and CFN Erin Taylor for spending time with us and showing how the Army does it. Thier precision and efficiency would rival the best professional race team and we could tell they love what they do, and have a lot of fun doing it.
Frank’s immaculate Mustang concourse car had the Dandy Engines treatment performed to its Boss 302 heads. We port filled the intake runners to get them down to 190cc. Running a factory duel plane intake manifold the engine makes a healthy 370 HP and 340 ft lb. Considering the cam has only 218 @ .050 it’s a real stump puller.
Mark Schlorf’s mini modified tractor runs a Dandy Eng’s 408 Windsor making 597HP naturally aspirated and 750HP on the bottle.
What a handful!
With a super strong 265 Hemi, this VG is in mint condition and a credit to the proud owners.
Still far frome being finished, this car is already a work of art and has an engine to match.
The 572ci, 620hp crate motor is now 685hp after a day on the dyno and a few tweaks. We can’t wait to see how the completed car looks and drives.
