    Default Thanks EFI Live

    I was lucky enough to be asked by Mike Wood of Nitrous Express to help with his Duramax powered 94 Mustang at the Texas Mile, standing mile event.

    We ended up going 202.4mph!

    All this is done using my V2 to tune the LBZ in the car.

    Press Release
    For immediate release

    Mike Wood, owner of Nitrous Express, became the first person to exceed the 200 mph mark in a diesel powered street legal vehicle at the Texas Mile in historic Goliad Texas. Mike wheeled his 1994 DuraMax GT Mustang to a world record Sunday morning to the cheers and support of the crowd and fellow competitors.

    Mike just missed the mark Saturday, running a close 199.2 MPH. He and his Crew, consisting of John (JohnBoy) Jordan, and Greg Hogue went to work, refining the tune on the Keeter Performance Engineering 7 liter (427 CID) Turbocharged Chevy diesel engine Saturday night. Wood’s Team was rewarded Sunday morning, by not only exceeding the 200 mph barrier, but smashed it with an amazing 202.4 MPH.

    The Texas Mile is a one mile standing start Land Speed event held twice a year in Goliad Texas

    Mike’s company, Nitrous Express located in Wichita Falls Texas, is a leader in applying Nitrous Oxide to diesel performance applications resulting in safer power increases and significant smoke reduction in competitive diesel motorsports. The DuraMax diesel Mustang uses the advanced boost referenced nitrous control system manufactured by NX.

    Mike and the Mustang are not new to the winners circle having competed and won Hot Rod Magazine’s Drag week the last 2 years. Hot Rod’s Drag Week is a grueling week long, 5 race track, 1500 mile road trip without support vehicles. The Mustang turned in impressive 9 second quarter mile elapsed times, at 147 mph, all the while with impressive 38 mpg fuel averages, including racing. Mike drove the car from Wichita Falls over 1000 miles to the start of Drag Week and then drove home for a total of 3800 miles.

    The Mustang burns an alternative energy blend of 95 % synthetic diesel made from a gas to liquid process utilizing natural gas, and 5 % bio-diesel, this fuel is manufactured by Gulf States Hydrocarbons of Houston Texas. Jess Hewitt, CEO of Gulf States Hydrocarbons, manufactures SynDiesel primarily as an emergency generator fuel with 15 year storage life, as opposed to 1 year for regular diesel fuel. Hewitt states that diesel performance enthusiasts quickly realized that SynDiesel was a cleaner alterative to pump diesel and has a performance advantage. SynDiesel is the spec fuel for the SCCA VW Jetta Cup series .



    Mike can be seen driving his unique Mustang around Wichita Falls , and the country .
