12V92 ????
What sort of HP we talking here?
And how do they keep the drive train intact??

What part of this wide brown land did you spot this injector Jack ?

Reckon it might be pretty heavy on the steer, but the cool factor would more than compensate for that

I saw the Pete on Northern Yorke Peninsula. Like the info that Lang put up re GM power, the owner said the motor is capable of developing somewhere towards 700hp. Judging by the finness with which he drove it, I would say he was quite mindfull of what is required to keep the drivetrain intact,
Cheers, Injector Jack

I spoke with Grant today - the Grant that built the engines for the Detroit Devil & Satan's Son and he had some input with the owner when the trans plant was done. The engine has 9G90 (9295) injectors which equates to 700hp. Radiator size restricts the horsepower to 700. Originally the engine was a DDEC so it would have been easy to de-tune but the owner wanted mechanical hence the 9G90 injectors. A second radiator mounted behind the bunk was discussed to bump up the horsepower but that idea is currently on the back burner.
