PROCHARGER CHAMPION: JIM PLIMPTON
The 5th annual HOT ROD Pump Gas Drags were held May 10th in Memphis, TN and ProCharger had an amazing showing. Jim Plimpton and his ’87 T-bird began in the number three qualifying position. Plimpton’s ProCharger supercharged and intercooled 572 cid Ford powered him to an event winning 8.53 @ 163.06 mph! Plimpton was also a finalist in the 2008 DynoMax Power to the Wheel competition where he put down 1,443 rear-wheel horsepower on the DynoMax chassis-dyno.
Based in Cudahy, WI, the Plimpton Thunderbird makes all of that power on pump-gas and is fed by the famed F-3R-139 ProCharger self-contained supercharger. Plimpton is proof that a ProCharged pump-gas street car is easily capable of those big power numbers normally reserved for race cars.
ProCharger would like to congratulate Jim Plimpton on taking top honors in the 2008 HOT ROD Pump Gas Drags and for his 4th place finish in the 2008 DynoMax Power to the Wheels Competition.
