First time out - Alkydigger set up
You aren’t kidding. It shocked everyone how crisp it ran for the first time out. The first run it shook the tires so hard at the hit it knocked all of my gauges off. I need to scale the car and get weight balanced better and hook up the timing mechanism. Going to have to manage power or it will never hook up. That old blower made 25lbs of boost @25% over. Fire up, burnout and that little run burned almost 6 gal of alcohol.
Thanks for the invoice. Again I would like to give your staff a huge thumbs up especially the 2 daughters that work there. Every time I place an order I receive a super friendly person an professional advice. It’s really enjoyable to place an order and receive that southern hospitality that you just don’t find anymore. Please pass this on I could of ordered these parts at a lot of places but It’s hard to beat your service.

I came down and had y’all flow a pump and set me up with hat nozzles and the port nozzles. I had the pump about 2x larger than the engine needed. The 1200 Enderle.
Wanted to follow up and tell ya you was spot on with the nozzles sizes. We changed the pump sizer from 115 all the way to a 195 to get the fuel out of it. 100 main pill and the high speed at 60 psi and a 115 pill. Feller doing the dyno wanted to stay at the 100 main pill to make changes easier for air density adjustment at the track. Prolly needed a second high speed about 7200 rpm as it was going rich again but we decided 1327 hp and 1080 ft lbs torque was more than enough for a gm bbc block.
Exhaust temps was with in 15 degrees on each cylinder. Still only 850 degrees at 7200 rpms. 35% overdrive and 18 psi.
I set the blower back 2” on that Edelbrock tunnel ram I bought from you guys. Just wanted to say thanks! I picked up almost 500 hp with y’all help. Here’s a couple pics of the manifold also
Thanks again from a
Forever a loyal custom
Mike ,Toni and Shannon, thanks for getting the blower and parts out to me in time for the Livermore Kentucky drag boat race ,the motor ran great ,first qualifying pass went 6.26 @ 130 mph ! That was only 10percent over on the blower ! 6.00 is the index for QE ! The fastest open boat class,and there was more in it ! But being fairly new to the boat I backed it up to a 6.50 index ,I ran right on 6.5 but late I was out ,oh well that's drag racing , anyway I really appreciate it , Kentucky Drag Boat association appreciate s the sponsorship,Look forward to doing more business with ya!
Great company to deal with. A wealth of experience and knowledge coupled with a fast and efficient service including the UK!
Mike and his people have been REALLY good to work with...his knowledge and willingness to spend the time with you to explain things and make sure its right..is by far the BEST !!! Thanks for all of your help...!!! LETS RACE !!

Hello Mike, and Toni
A huge thank you for your guidance and referring Kurt to me. He was a big help and offered to do some more programming as I put some miles on it. With you and Kurt's help I was able to succeed with a dream of mine. It feels so much better to get it done with help. At one point I was ready to give up and pay for it but so glad I didn't.
Thank you so much
I spoke to Mike on Thursday and he was so helpful that I had to say thanks…as I told Mike, you have all my injection business from now on!!

Went racing with my vintage midget Saturday for the first time with the new Enderle 80A-0 pump I got from you. The car started easy and ran perfect with the 110 pill you recommended. I was a little worried that the changeover form old Hilborn pump to new Enderle would need a little extra "tuning".
The pill you recommended to start with was perfect. Engine ran crisp with max rpm right where I wanted it. For each track we go to I change gear ratio in the quick change rear end to try and get the engine to run 6300-6400 rpm max. When I come into the pits after a run on the track my tach holds the highest RPM.
I didn't change the pill you suggested all day. RPM was perfect, idle perfect, no sound of being lean and the car started easier than before on the push off. (we have to push start cars)
In the main event I came in second to a car that has a bigger engine, more HP and spends cubic $$ on the car. We were side by side for 13/15 laps and put on a great show, and I finished right on his bumper.
Thank you for all your help,
ps: I will send you a picture of this last race when I get them.
I wanted to take a quick moment and again thank you for all the help with my dad (Steve Wright) and I during the 2017 season on our swap over to injected alcohol on his FED. He ended up class champion, we both won almost every race we drove and have no idea why we didn't swap to injection earlier.
Well..... Now it's my time, for my own car. We've been building up a little 125" wb altered to run with the group and do some brackets and maybe even a sportsman category. As we decided to do something we haven't done before with his...... we again are venturing into new territory with mine.
Weiand 177 Blower on a SBC. Now looking through your site, most the stuff you have deals with larger blowers, do you deal with anything in this range? For our first year we are planning on running a 750 holly alky carb with it. And I would like eventually to be able to make the switch over to injected.
Any thoughts or guidance would be appreciated as you are a name we trust as do plenty of other great race teams we know.
Thanks in advance as always.

Being from the cold dark north, and a long way from any tracks still open, the season for Pelissier Family Racing has come to an end. We had a very successful summer including good showings at the Meltdown Drags and the Fall Fall Out. The Scout is “finally” running as it should. It ripped off a best 1/8th mile times of 6.05 / 117. This is with a very soft tune and timid launches. There will be a 5.90 very soon in the new season. The Scout made a bunch of print and internet magazines with our wheel standing antics. The Prefect was also running strong with et’s in the very low 10’s… but it’s loud (very loud) and does hellacious burnouts. It has also become a fan and media favorite with pictures in print and all over the media including a feature in Roadkill Magazine.
The performance of both of these machines has been in most part due to your direct personal involvement and the parts and services from Alkydigger. The service and professionalism shown by you all has been outstanding. Your infinite amount of patience with us has been very much appreciated and your shipping and service have always been as promised. You folks have been a pleasure to deal with.
As we settle into the long darkness of our Canadian winters, we are already planning our events for 2018. We anticipate using your knowledge and services further even if it’s simply to maintain our existing equipment or stock up on spares. We’ll be in touch shortly for those items.
Thank you very much for being part of our very successful year.
Have a great Thanksgiving, have a wonderful Holiday Season and a safe and bountiful New Years
