New bigger engine for Blue Thunder

The Blue Thunder Pulling Team from Tonden in the Netherlands switched after 1 year in the Light Super Stock class into the Super Stock class in the beginning of the 2016 season. The New Holland T 7 270 Super Stock Tractor received a new Humco rearend and a set of new Keizer rims with new Firestone Puller 2000 HP tyres after the Indoor Pull in Zwolle, the Netherlands. Since the Beach Pull in Putten, the Netherlands the small 6 cylinder Ford Powerstar engine of the former Light Super Stock was replaced by a new bigger engine. The Tractor got a new 6 cylinder Cummins engine with 10.5l capacity. The Cummins has a billet VSP (Veldhuizen Special Product) aluminium cylinder head with a homemade intake and exhaust manifold, 4 billet Holset HX 82 turbocharger, a billet crankshaft from VSP, billet aluminium pistons and rods, a water injection system, a MSD 8 Dual Coil ignition, a Racepack datalogger and a VSP methanol injection system.
The Dutch Team is with the first passes happy so far. The Blue Thunder Team compete with their Super Stock Tractor in the Dutch Grand National Championship this year.
