Starting with a 100% stock B18C1, Myles Kerr of English Racing's 'Gringotegra' has had more than a slight tickle to get it to this level of performance including Wiseco pistons, steel CP Carrillo rods, Golden Eagle block sleeves with an 84.5mm bore bringing the capacity to 1.956L. The B18C1 also has ACL main/rod bearings, 4Piston Front Runner CNC head, GSC Power-Division retainers, valve springs and cams.
The car runs approx 54psi in 5th gear from a Precision 7675 Gen II, Extreme Turbo Systems 5” intercooler, a MoTeC M130 ECU and C127 dash which help control the M1 Methanol fuel via 8 x Fuel Injector Clinic 2150cc injectors fed via 2 x Bosch 044 surge pumps and a Magnus Motorsports mechanical main pump. A Graf Gearboxes 5 speed dogbox transmission helps put power to the ground.
Other than the cars impressive performance and parts list, Andre and Myles discuss the importance of monitoring coolant pressure in relation to cylinder head sealing and also why the car runs RC batteries instead of more popular alternative methods, and how these are set up and perform over a weekend of ½ mile drag racing.
