With thousands of hours of thought and analysis, hundreds of hours of hard work, and four hours of testing, the Robinsons packed up their unlikely creation and headed from Grimsby, Ontario, Canada, down to the Jegs Engine Masters Challenge at the University of Northwestern Ohio campus in Lima, Ohio. When their time slot finally came, they hooked up their stock cast-iron headed 307 to the DTS dyno, while the crowd watched the closed-circuit TV in the main EMC lounge area. They didn't know that they were about to get their socks blown off. Where big-name engine builders broke or were DQ'd, the little Olds kept on. Where some ran hot and saw their scores shrink, the Robinsons kept making power, not dropping a point between their three final pulls. With over 435 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque from a tiny mid-'80s smog engine, the guys from up north proved that their analytical skills and attention to detail put them square in the middle of some of the best engine builders in the country.
