GMMG Hot Rod Edition #2000

Phase II / 435hp - 6 speed - 4:10 Posi - T-Tops

1 of 36 HRE's built 

2000HRE/Erling.JPG

August 8, 2015

The new LS1 spun a bearing.... another new block....

New LS1 with Forged pistons & rods & it will be right once & for all.

It just has to be right! 

New motor vs. original motor discussion..............

Some feel this is an issue.  You can look at it a number of different ways.

Over 25% of all the 550 GMMG's do not have the orignal GM Engine they were born with.

GMMG removed the original factory motor & installed C5R 427's & 454 engines in over 125 cars. 

Mike Carnahan (now with Vengeance Racing) & Ron Moen upgraded & built most of the GMMG motors & engine upgrades for GMMG.

Mike did the final work, test, tune & dyno work on HRE #2000.  He kept the engine just like GMMG would have done it.

I look at this as a huge plus............  A GMMG with 39k total miles & over $20k in a new Mike Carnahan motor.

HRE #2000 is spot on & the best running GMMG I've owned.

October 10, 2015

Car was shipped to Mike Carnahan @ Vengeance because Parks couldn't figure out why it wouldn't run.

The crank position sensor was finger tight instead of 22 foot pounds & the engine wouldn't run. 

Mike put 50 miles on - cut the oil filter apart - looked good.

He drove it more, reprogramed & Dyno'd the motor - cut oil filter apart again - OK

Mike said Thompson Motorsports built a great motor & eveything checks out 100%.

Finally after 3 motors & 16 months without the car I have some good news.


POINT - MIKE CARNAHAN IS THE ONLY PERSON I WILL EVER LET WORK ON MY GMMG MOTORS

He knows the setup & tune becasue he built the GMMG motors originally.

Thanks Mike.

Phase II/435 hp

Reprogramed, Dyno'd & Tuned by Nickey - Chicago 

March 3, 2014
 
HRE #2000 will be joining Jim's GMMG Collection
 
Jeff Gassen & I have been pals for a number of years now & have had a lot of fun chasing each other on the Power Tour with his Hot Rod Edition #2000.
 
I've always loved the Navy Blue Metallic & Red Stripe paint & hoped to someday own HRE #2000.  Today is my lucky day!
 
It's a Phase 2 - 435 hp with line lock, cutout exhaust special wheels & center caps.  This car flies & there are many You Tube video's of this car.
 
#2000 has been on three Power Tours & I will be driving it on the 2014 HRPT - Jeff was the original owner.

One of 36 HRE's (plus 2 prototypes)

This car looks & drives amazing - the NBM/red paint is 1 of 1

The FISKE wheels are spot on. (Just like the wide-body Dick Harrell wheels)
