I am wondering whether the old Massey 1150 could beat an Oliver 2255. I think this would be a very hard match for the Massey. How much horsepower do you think can be built from the Cat. I mean within a reasonable price range. Turbo's camshafts, what do I need. Where can I get them.

How much do you want to invest? $10k - 15k could get you in the ballpark if you have a tractor and want an a$$ kicker. I got some parts for a 2805 prostocker from out in OHio for a 640 Perkins. His fuel system alone cost around $7,500 and $5,000 for the turbo, and another $2,000 for the engine girdle. The result 800cc's of fuel delivered, 115psi of boost with one charger, and 1,800 HP at 6,500 RPM's. Tire speed was around 55MPH. He was going to design new heads for the tractor for increased airflow and we got his old heads, intake manifold, and exhaust headers. He had a higher lift cam and ported heads and everything else was stock. I would out a 540 or 640 in the 1150 instead of using the 510. You could just change the crank and rods from the 540 into your 510 and have a 540. We got our girdle from Lloyd Neuman. THey pull prostock, Superstock and unlimited Superstocks. I would personally use a Cat because they are cheaper for parts plus an extra 100 Cubes. A 510 or 540 should be able to push around 250 - 300 Hp with a charger and stock fuel system turned up all of the way. A cam might get ou another 25Hp A cat on the other hand could easily get you to 300Hp and probably to 400Hp with a stock fuel system and ntohing done inside. A charger with about 40LBS of boost would help too.

I saw a 2255 pull up in northern Missouri. Awsome tractor. The 1155 Massey that was there took a beating. I guess that the cat had a turbo on it with a healthy dose of fule to it didn't hurt either. I think he said hey was turning 4 grand with the motor. He pulled it out of the gate every time. Just when you thought that he was going to start powering out he shifted the over-under to low and out the gate went the cat. He was running in road gear while all the others were in low. Man I wish I had one (or maybe a 2-180 White).
