Figured I would post up our "success story"
I installed and tuned an MS3X on the "Hot Heads Research" entry this year, which is a 1956 Chrysler Hemi running a set of Hot Heads aluminum heads, a customized Hilborn inline throttle body and a wicked set of ram tubes / injector stacks CNCd by my friends at Smithberg Racing.
But first, I want to extend a HUGE thanks to James Murray, Ken Culver as they made themselves available for each of our dyno sessions during the past 2 years in preparation for this event. I simply could not do this without your help with software questions and best practices. Also I'd like to thank Jerry and Matt at http://www.DIYautotune.com
as they provided us with the MS3X parts to get the job done. Finally, another HUGE thanks to Jean Belanger and Alan To, who provided the IOX and SLC-OEM modules which allowed a first at the event: individual 8-channel O2 corrections THAT WORK! We would be far behind the pack if we hadn't been able to monitor individual O2s and correct on the fly, period. The magazine decided to do a tear-down and a feature article in coming months because our engine was so unique and "intricate" (A great term to describe a MEgasquirt effort!).
We placed 10th in the "Extreme Street" division, not a bad finish considering we were up against NHRA ProStock engines, numerous Cup Car engine configurations, late model LS's and Hemis, you name it.
Here's the update from PHR's website and a few pics they took:
Team 6 Hot Heads Gene Adams Performance
The Hot Heads/ Gene Adams Team led by Bob Holmes is a story of coming together to pay tribute to a friend. With the death of team leader Dan Miller, who was the life and driving force behind the entry, it seemed as though this entry would be withdrawn. Dan's close friends, team members, and associates from across the country came together to see Dan's final engine project to completion as a tribute to Dan Miller. The early Hemi engine had to be one of the most intricate and complex ever to run in Engine Masters competition. With a top end from Hot Heads, a Mega Squirt EFI, and a unique inline throttle body, this piece was genuinely one of a kind. In a groundswell of support the dyno room was packed with team members and supporters as the engine met the dyno. Scott Clark worked the tune as the 385-cube early Hemi prepared to fire in qualifying for the Xtreme division. The engine put down a very strong show, showing a peak power output of 689 horsepower, with a score of 2767.1. Dan would have been proud.

Squirted: it's easier to list the ones I haven't squirted. I need to do more motorcycle engines!
