On the Dyno

Our test car is the perfect candidate for Blow-By Racing's Jackal fuel system. The car is an '11 GT with a Blow-By Racing-built short-block featuring a stock crank, Manley rods, Manley pistons, and a boost-friendly 9:1 compression ratio. The engine features stock heads and intake. For power, the car has a Hellion Power Systems single-turbo kit with a Precision 67mm turbocharger and 80-lb/hr injectors. Essentially, this test car features a built engine with a Hellion single-turbo kit, but even so, Blow-By's Jackal fuel system is necessary since the stock fuel system peters out around 650 hp, but with a turbo car, the power comes on so violently, that number is actually lower. The way a turbo car's power comes on makes a fuel system that much more valuable and necessary. As you can see by the dyno numbers, this car makes excellent use of the Jackal fuel system, having made 687 hp and 789 lb-ft of torque at 14 pounds of boost, and on pump gas.
