Tonto, it was here on the board in some thread, but it's probably been at least two years ago. Like I said, all his stuff looked good to me from what I saw. His displays were top notch and I would think that somebody who puts that much time into their displays probably puts that much time and effort into their product as well.

I've been running Chiefs for 3 years in a triple engine set up, injected and supercharged with -0- problems. First class folks in every respect.

Steve, what kind of superchargers are you running on your engines?

I just checked Chief's web site-Merlin Blocks, Lunati cranks,Oliver rods. Good stuff. I guess I wasn't losing it after all!--Lou

I have heard a lot of good things today and I talked with Tommy yesterday and he was very helpful. Anyone who has Chief's please let me know about longevity and maintenance.

p/m sgrady. He may be out at Smoke Run this weekend. I have talked to him re: Chief and he is very aware of what's going on. He has a pre-designated maintenence schedule and replaces/tunes BEFORE it breaks. Been with Chief for years.

SR 24: They are Whipples atop a base 500 EFI. The only change from the original Merc 500 EFI was the addition of Merlin heads. Tommy used them in lieu of the existing heads for higher torque. They average 710 HP at 730 lbs of torque @5,500. The bulk of the torque is in the mid 3000 rpm range.

Take care,
Steve

Hey Albert, what's up? Come by sometime.

Robert some people talk a whole lot of crap for the sake of what.
I`m real busy racing, I just won two races in a row, Marathon and
Sarasota and I race next weekend in Dania. So you are getting the
APACHE ready with those pretty in pink blower motors. Good luck
Robert and say hello to the tribe at CHIEF ENGINES.

Sr-24 is remembering a thread when a person (who is no longer around) took a boat with a pair of Chiefs and robbed parts to replace them with inferior parts and then sell the parts. Therefore, when the motors were tore down the less desirable parts were found. Not Chiefs fault at all. Just to set the record straight.
