Stacey David, connoisseur of American V8 power and host of Speed Channel’s Gearz program, visited Jon Kaase Racing Engines recently.
The film team had arrived in Winder, Georgia to record the assembly and dyno testing of Kaase’s new P-38 cross ram, the firm’s latest innovation for small-block Fords.
Earlier, a 302 Windsor small block with over 100,000 miles of use had been retrieved from a junk yard. Kaase installed an upgraded camshaft, fly-cut valve reliefs in the existing pistons to allow the P-38’s canted valves to operate, installed the heads with 60cc combustion chambers and recorded 498hp with barely 9:1 compression ratio.
On the day before the film crew arrived they removed the heads and machined them, reducing their combustion chamber volumes from 60 to 48cc. Now with 10:1 compression ratio they mounted the engine on the dynamometer for the benefit of Gearz. It recorded 560hp and Stacey David laughed and said, “Not bad for a junkyard dog.”
Airing on the Speed channel and now entering its seventh season, the Gearz production team creates 13 to 15 episodes each year, which are broadcast nationwide. Interestingly, Gearz reaches enthusiastic audiences as distant as Russia and France.

The Next Generation of Intakes: The Momentum HD sealed air intake system is designed using the
most up-to-date engineering tools and techniques to provide you with the perfect blend of power and
protection. This intake system is premium in every way. From the one-piece sealed housing with a built

air scoop. A large, clear sight window is used for a hassle-free filter inspection.
Huge 10-Layer Performance Air Filter: The Momentum HD is designed around a massive 1,000cfm
performance 360 degree radial flow air filter with 10-layers of progressive cotton media producing 99.47%
cumulative efficiency. The unique air filter to housing interface (patent pending) allows for maximum filter
size which increases the available air volume while simplifying the installation process. The air filter is
wrapped in reinforced metal providing maximum strength to prevent filter collapse
Premium Hardware: Premium stainless steel T-bold clamps and a 2-ply reinforced silicone hump
coupler at the turbo is used for strength and durability while also providing the most secure installation
available. Momentum HD intakes are designed with fewer parts for a quick and simple installation.
Proven Results: The Momentum HD intake system outflowed the factory intake by 42% and produced
