HAV R8 catches fire on the dyno

This HSV R8 caught fire on the dyno. According to the YouTube poster, the car doesn’t run on nitrous, nor did it destroy the motor. Apparently an injector o-ring failed, spraying the engine bay with fuel. Luckily no one was hurt, and the car was running again 30 minutes later.

This week on a NEW episode of HorsePower, we celebrate Edelbrock’s 75 years of high performance with a special build on a new 5.0-Liter Mustang! This pony car will be getting a new E-Force supercharger, Ford Racing suspension, exhaust and much more!

“A supercharged Mustang needs a super suspension to handle all the extra power, and that’s exactly what we’re gonna give it with this Ford Racing handling pack. … It’s designed to give the car more road course attitude without sacrificing any of the handling,” said HorsePower host Mike Galley.

Not only is HorsePower building the ultimate performance Mustang, but we will be giving it away to one lucky PowerBlock viewer! Want your chance to win? Click here: Edelbrock Mustang Giveaway
