One of the BTR's Latest 496 Inch Olds Projects Hits the Dyno 

BTR has designed and constructed several pump gas 496 inch Big Block Olds projects in the past several years. These combinations have successfully shown incredible power in the lower rpm ranges which is desirable especially in street applications.  Depending on the particular build, torque numbers have been a high as 660 ft. lbs at 4200 rpm with 600+ ft. lbs as low as 3000rpm!


The latest build for Canadian customer John Behun, is a 499 Olds with mildly ported Edelbrock aluminum heads and Edelbrock Torquer manifold, Comp Cams hydraulic roller camshaft and accessories, CP pistons, Harland Sharpe roller rockers, Moroso oil pan, and a Demon carburetor. This motor idles at 800 rpm has wicked throttle response, and runs on pump gas. This engine made 570 hp, 617 ft lbs of torque and is designed to drive anywhere including the dragstrip!  **IMPORTANT STOCK TIP** buy some stock in rubber. John is going to be wearing out some tires

BTR Performance Completes it's First Year in NMCA Extreme Street Competition within Top Ten

Bill Trovato of BTR Performance, armed with his Edelbrock Nitrous System, Small Block Oldsmobile powered Starfire has completed his first year in NMCA's Extreme Street Class. Bill stated at the beginning of the 2007 season: "Running a 98 inch wheelbase car without wheelie bars isn't going to be easy to figure out." "I'll be happy just to finish the season without ruining the car" During the season, the Starfire qualified in the top of the ladder all season without fail, and came out unscathed.



"It took damn near most of the racing season to get comfortable to lean on it."  "2007 was a conservative year, 2008 will be different!"

Bill Trovato in the BTR Performance Olds Starfire made his Debut Performance over the weekend in the NMCA Series Extreme Street Class. With a variety of new challenges to overcome and sort out, the initial results were outstanding. Bill Qualified #2 in a field of 23 cars with a stout 8.29 ET.

Armed with a slightly different version of the old Small Block Oldsmobile with a new Edelbrock Fogger system, it certainly is an oddball in the class filled with Chevy's and Blown Fords. 

During Eliminations, Bill progressed through several rounds of eliminations and eventually lost in the Quarter Finals with a tire spinning pass that left him a bit short..


Bob Curran also brought out his Corvette with the a new BTR Bullet!! First time out with the new combination, carrying an extra 100 pounds since last  year, Bob went an 8.26 ET on only a 36 Nitrous Pill!! This is just on the beginning of the starting curve! Watch out!!  

Be sure to follow the series as it progresses through the as it issue to be an exciting season as the the historically lethal BTR Combination is sorted out.
