With a strict set of rules to follow, the engines are given an overall rating based on peak horsepower and peak torque divided by the retail cost of listed parts. AMSOIL Synthetic Oil is the only oil permitted for use in each engine from the start, and this has contributed tremendously to the winners’ outcomes in past years. Testing is done with a 900 rpm-per-second acceleration test, and testing data will be gathered between the 3,000-7,000 rpm range. Over the course of 35 minutes, each engine is required to make at least three scored pulls and the one with the highest combined horsepower and torque number will be used for the final score. In previous years some engines couldn’t take the heat and were disqualified.
The main purpose of this challenge is to give engine builders well-deserved exposure to a market that has a need for them. AMSOIL will be on top of any new developments, so watch this space for updates and outcomes of one of the most anticipated events on the Hot Rod calendar.
