Bryce Mulvey of Dr-J’s Performance brought a 23-degree Chevrolet equipped with their own AirWolf cylinder heads. With the exception of custom CP pistons, their competition engine was re-assembled with off the shelf parts, including Dr-J’s standard 220cc CNC cylinder heads. The 436-cube small block showed very good peak output, recording 711 horsepower and 629 lb-ft of torque. The engine pulled effortlessly to beyond 7000 rpm, however a dip in the torque curve at the very bottom of the rpm range put a crimp on the score. The team completed qualifying eliminations with 2604 posted to the board.
