Arrington Builds Nostalgia Gen 3 Hemi On Horsepower Tv

I figured this had been mentioned somewhere, but when I did a forum search for "Arrington on 'Horsepower TV'" didn't find anything, so decided it was worth posting. Didn't see all of the show this morning, but if you like engine building this is worth a look. Congrats to Arrington, they look good (as usual) in the show...

I'm glad this is finally airing. I got to hang out with Eric from Arrington during the filming of a lot of this episode. I had to keep hush hush about this or risk the black helicopters would come and get me.

 

Seeing it filmed was really cool and Chris (the engine builder Eric brought with him) is an awesome engine builder. He could hear the torque wrench clicking across the room while he and I were having a conversation and he stopped the guys and let them know the setting wasn't right. He also corrected them a couple times on the order to put things together to make them easier.

 

I can't wait to go watch the episode.

Stumbled across the end of this episode today on Horsepower TV. Arrington builds a Gen III hemi with old school blower and dual quads for later installation in a 70-something Dart. Looking at listings, appears this should re-air Sunday 6/24/12 at 9:30 eastern time.

That and they said they had timing pulled also. No idea where they had it but must have been low. They mentioned 14 psi but that was just what they built it for and not necessarily what they were running it at.

Very cool, the boost must've been really low though, only 550 hp at the crank?

 

That was the LOW boost pulley combo. It made ALOT!!!! more on some good fuel with 15 lbs of boost. That blower takes ALOT to spin.
