Dyno Testing Go Karts, Builders, and Donor Vehicles
Here at Cleveland Power & Performance, we routinely go after high performance, late model domestic sport cars and trucks. With that comes the opportunity to receive high performance engines with additional aftermarket modifications.
When we receive these engines, we go through them thoroughly to identify all the components. We fully inspect each part and the engine as a whole. Once a list of modifications identifying the aftermarket components are complete and verified intact with no damage, we sometimes send the vehicle out to have it tuned. Other times we take the vehicles to a dyno shop to have the tune inspected and make sure it is healthy for the next buyer, as well as legit dyno numbers.
An example is this 2004 Dodge Viper SRT-10 8.3L we received with a Custom Ground Comp Cam. We pulled the serial numbers and verified the grind, turned the vehicle into a run and drive Donor Go Kart, then dropped it off at Big Three Racing in Hinckley, Ohio. They verified the tune was safe and healthy. It then put down 514 rear wheel horsepower and 510 ft – lbs of torque!

We’ve sold hundreds of C6 Corvette donor cars over the years, and if you are considering one for your next project, you’ll be surprised and pleased to read all the improvements the 7th generation Corvette has over the 6th, for only a slight increase in price.
Starting with the driveline, the 6.2L LT1 V8 engine is a beast, delivering 460 horsepower and 465 lb.-ft. of torque utilizing several advanced technologies, including direct injection, Active Fuel Management and continuously variable valve timing to support an advanced combustion system. The Corvette’s LT1 engine features a structural aluminum six-quart oil pan, and included with our Donor Go Kart, a dry-sump oiling system with a 10.5-quart capacity is included as well.
Other features include an ELECTRIC power steering, which frees up performance and fuel efficiency, oil-spray piston cooling, “four-into-one” short-header exhaust manifold design, and of course, an all aluminum cylinder block.
On the interior, the new leather wrapped seats are styled expertly, very sporty, feel great, and even the passenger received attention as there is a grab handle on the center console. The infotainment navigation system is integrated with all digital speedometer display screen, which can be customized to your liking. Most all surfaces are leather wrapped, and the advanced heads up display shows plenty of data to keep your eyes on the road.
The suspension has been reworked as well. Everything is made of aluminum, including the frame that the upper control arm and shock absorber are bolted into with tie bars. The magnetorheological dampers have an adaptive control system that makes damping adjustments every 10 milliseconds. New to the C7 are adjustable high controls. Twirl all four and you can lower the car. 13.6-inch Ventilated front brake rotors have cooling tricks of their own in the form of surface slots and a spoked hub/rotor interface that looks like a two-piece design, but isn’t. The front calipers are four-piston Brembo units.

It includes everything you need to put into your custom application without getting Nickle and Dimed down the road!
