Scott Clark has been tuning electronic fuel injection vehicles since the tools were first made available to enthusiasts. Today, he applies his experience, understanding, and tuning knowledge to some of the fastest cars in the world. He’s currently working with Team Vesco and the Turbinator, the turbine powered streamliner, one of several streamliners going after the 500 mph wheel-driven record at Bonneville this year! Scott joined Kevin Oeste to talk about that program as well as other facets of engine tuning and performance on this episode of the Bonneville Up To Speed Podcast!

Wow! Just listened to the podcast with Scott Clark…Soooo Cooool!
I stumbled upon it doing some Speeduino research as I am in the final phase of my own build. Don’t Laugh, but I drive a 1986 Volkswagen Wolfsburg GL Syncro (aka. Weekender Syncro. Think camper without the built-in sink and stove, but with beds upstairs and downstairs LOL) Anyway, I’ve had my Bus for 28 years, and have been powering it with a motor from a 1990 VW Corrado G60 since 2004, although converted from G60 Supercharger to Turbo in 2008. After the degradation of the factory G60 engine harness led to a burnt piston a few times, I decided to go DIY. Initially looking at Megasquirt but the price was not something that I could justify, then I found Speeduino. Now I’m converting my Bus to Speeduino where I’ll cut my teeth on it, then convert a few of my old BMW’s (79′ 633csi, and 72′ 2002) and finally my 1967 2.2l 911 (912 conversion). I will definitely be going to Real Tuners to get in on the Tuning Classes as I am an IT guy by trade, but definitely one of the few guys that really gets excited about Engine Controllers. I’m really looking forward to learning from one of the Best! Cheers.
