Welcome to the Racing Insider’s Podcast!

Each week, Kate Dillon from Crate Insider and Steve Hendren from Hendren Racing Engines go live on the Crate Insider Facebook page to chat about world events, random things, and to answer tech questions.

This week has been good for the hosts. Kate is coming back from her staycation and is ready to get tech help and parts, to racers all over the US. Steve is his typical grumpy self. He has refused to slow down and admits that it is making him extra cranky. Someone get this guy a binkie!


Can you discuss the gains in performance when switching from a Holley 600 on 93 pump gas to a 650HP on CHP? (602) wondering how much it’s worth in your opinion and I know each engine may be different in the Dyno. What fuel pressure is recommended for the CHP setup?
With the 602 do you ever find any advantages with running a little colder spark plug and or running 110 octane race gas to add more timing?
Is it true that anti freeze will make a motor run 20 deg. Hotter?
Have you gotten some of the new 604’s in just wondering how many issues you been seeing so far?
602 in Senoia how much of a difference can you tell running a brinn style trans over a saginaw?
In a crate 602 is there a big difference in E3 plugs vs. NGK?
What e85 carb do you recommend for 602?
Did GM sell the 602 engine with a 6 3/4 inch balancer at any point?
Between renagade crate elite fuel and vp-chp witch is better, and can you run the same carb set up?
