Matt Powers gets a new engine program, 700HP+

Posted on Feb 8, 2013 In Car Build Matt Powers

Matt Powers has announced that he will be working with Katech engines for his 2013 engine package, running the ‘Track Attack’ setup which boastsĀ 463ci/7.6L of displacement and 700 horsepower. The setup will use an RHS Aluminum block, Comp Cam, FAST products, ACT Clutch, and Mishimoto cooling system. We’ve seen Matt get more and more serious about his program in the past couple of years, and he has finished in the top 10 for two consecutive years now. His first career win could come in 2013 wich such a serious setup, although it has been well documented that a majority of the field will be well north of 600hp in 2013.

    Great to see Matt getting ever more serious with his program. He definitely has the skills to be a top contender and with a car that can keep up with the ever increasing power war in FD right now victory should be that much closer.

    I can’t wait to see this in action at Long Beach!

    @brian: he was running around 500 whp last season. I’m super excited for Matt. He’s been progressing each year and now he’s super competitive. Just shows that you can become a top dog if you have enough drive to do it.
