These shows are all goin down hill. I flip on the tv and horsepower tv is on. Thinking ok cool I'll sit down and watch. They pull up in some new charger with a big ass aluminum import wing on it and hook it to a tractor pull sled and do pulls with the damn thing in the dirt. Wtf is goin on w these dumb shows. I want to see engine builds and drag racing not aluminum wings and truck pulls using a car.

So what you are saying is that you don't think it is realistic to do a complete Engine Build including Tune and Dyno time in a Half Hour? I stopped watching them many years ago!

The show is about HorsePower and they were displaying the HorsePower and Torque increase during a Tuning Upgrade to the vehicle. It just so happens that the person who it belonged to is into truck pulls. And every show they tape wont be for everyone but they still deliver some good information to their viewers.

Watching the Powerblock has become the definition of insanity.

I hate the same old "product placement" bullchit. I wouldn't put Patriot Perf heads on a junk Ford Modular lump. And what about the wimp dick cam swap?

Stopped watching it a long time ago. Their budget bills made me laugh. Too much new parts instead of working to really see the potential of a older part.

Oh this part does this, but then were gonna throw this new part on to replace it, do a cam swap, and it gives us a extra 30 HP plus its more shiny. Fuck that.

I love to see big inch motors with 9:1 comp and edelbrock carbs. Like the Musi 555 ci , the throttle body injection makes more power.
