When the Shorts got their engine dialed in, they were excited to get the whole family together and head to the University of Northwestern Ohio (UNOH) in Lima, Ohio, to see what the final results would show at the Challenge. “Some families like to get together and go on vacation. We get together and go dyno racing. That’s what we’ve been doing every year and we look forward to doing it some more,” he says. UNOH has hosted the AMSOIL Engine Masters Challenge for several years now and with the help of a number of enthusiastic student volunteers, the Triple S Hemi was strapped to the DTS/SuperFlow engine dyno. Flowmaster bullet-style mufflers were attached to the big elephant’s headers, and a set of Champion spark plugs lit off a fresh gulp of VP fuel, bringing the legend to life. Let it be said that there is nothing in the world that sounds as awesome as a real Hemi. And when that beast is abso-freakin-lutely screaming along at 7,500 rpm, it makes the hairs on your arms stand on end. When the dyno pulls were over and the little printer spit out the sheets, the proof was right in front of them that they had not only built an incredible 800hp monster, but they were some of the only people on the planet who had done it truly as a family affair.
