Records by cylinders.  The more cylinders does not always mean high horsepower.  Forced induction makes up for less cylinders and displacement.

A client recently purchased a 2008 Dodge Viper SRT-10.  From the factory, a Viper SRT-10 is a powerful car.  We put the Viper on the dyno for a baseline.  The Viper put down 564 rwhp and 539 ft-lbs of torque.

564 rwhp is a lot for most cars, but the owner wanted more power out of his Viper.  Unfortunately, there are currently not a lot of support available for this particular year of Viper.  This is a new platform and is the first mass air flow based drive-by-wire Viper.  This Viper is more efficient than previous generations of Vipers, which will make the task of high horsepower gains difficult.

Portland Speed Industries has a Dynojet AWD dyno.

Information is power.  The ability to have information about your engine in a functional setup will improve your driving experience.  Ben, an employee of Portland Speed Industries, needed a dash and gauge solution for his K20 powered Honda Civic.  His stock gauges lacked the information that he needed.

The solution that PSI installed was a MXL Strada from AIM Sports.  The MXL Strada is a digital dash and gauge.

A red 33 Ford 3 window coupe (all steel) sits in front of Portland Speed Industries.  This classic car underwent a prior restoration and sat in a museum for a few years.  The car is at PSI because the owner wants to make this car an enjoyable daily driver.   The owner  had us go over the car and give him any recommendations to improve performance, reliability, and basically make the car more enjoyable to drive.
